SQL 2008 r2 Reporting Services issue where the configurator is unable to find the server

Last Modified: 2016-02-17
When I start the Reporting Services Configuration Connection and it pops up with the Server Name:     It is showing the server name but when I tell it to find it fails.   I tried "LocalHost" and it gets the same error.  "Unable to connect to Report Server SERVERNAME"     My SQL server is functioning fine.   This is just the first time I have tried to setup the Reporting Services server so that we could start building reports.     Did I forget something during the install process?
