I have a report created that works in when I run locally, but when I deploy it to the hosted report server it works when I access it on the report server.  When I run it from my application using a report viewer I get "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.".  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

Check under which account your Asp.Net application works and that account got provisioned to execute the report.

Some of the reason to cause 401 are

User is not authorized with the Report Server.
May be Reporting Services is configured to use Kerberos, where as the Service Principal Name(SPN) is not registered for the account under Reporting Services is running.

Check with the below steps for configuration of Windows Authentication
