I am trying to configure a public facing Reporting Server, which is actually talking to a private Reporting Server backend. I have established the connections between the two of them, but I cannot get access to the reports because it keeps asking me for a Windows User when I try to connect to the Public facing website. Is there anyway that I can stop this from happening?

It seems that you have the reporting server (MSSQL ) to windows authentication and for some reason you might have some ports closed . Please see the guide bellow for ports used by MSSQL (in general ) and guide Reporting server security ( .
