Use the Web Service URL page to configure or modify the URL used to access the report server. A URL reservation will be created based on the URL you specify. The URL reservation defines the syntax and rules for all URLs that can be subsequently used to access the Report Server Web service. It specifies the prefix, host, port, and virtual directory for the Report Server Web service. Depending on how you specify the host, multiple URLs might be possible for a single reservation. The default value for the host specifies a strong wildcard. A strong wildcard allows you to specify in a URL any host name that can be resolved to the computer that hosts the report server. For more information about URL configuration and reservations, see How to: Configure a URL (Reporting Services Configuration) and Configuring Report Server URLs.
If you reinstalled Reporting Services and find that you get errors when attempting to use the default IP address value of All Assigned and port 80, you can usually resolve the error by re-creating the URL after restarting the service. For instructions, see Troubleshooting Configuration Problems.
Specifies the virtual directory name for the Report Server Web service. You can only have one virtual name for each Report Server Web service instance on the same computer.
Identifies the report server computer on a TCP/IP network. Valid values include:
All Assigned specifies that any of the IP addresses that are assigned to the computer can be used in a URL that points to a report server application. This value also encompasses friendly host names (such as computer names) that can be resolved by a domain name server to an IP address that is assigned to the computer. This is the default value for a Reporting Services URL.
All Unassigned specifies that the report server will accept any request that does not have an exact match for the IP address or host name. Do not use this value if another Web application is already using it. If you do so, you will disrupt service for the other application.
127.0.0.1 is used to access to localhost. It supports local administration on the report server computer. If you select only this value, only users who are logged on locally to the report server computer will have access the application.
Nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the IPv4 address of a network adapter card on your computer. If your network uses IPv6 addressing, the IP address will be a 128-bit value of 8 4-byte fields similar to the following format: <header>:nnnn:nnnn:nnnn:nnnn
If you have multiple cards, you will see an IP address for each one. If you select only this value, it will limit application access to the just the IP address (and any host name that a domain name server maps to that address). You cannot use localhost to access a report server, and you cannot use the IP addresses of other network adapter cards that are installed on the report server computer.
Specifies the port that report server monitors for HTTP requests for URLs that include the report server virtual directory name.
Binds a certificate to the IP address you specified. The certificate must be installed and configured on the computer. Reporting Services does not provide features for managing certificates. The certificate must be issued to a host name or a computer name that resolves to the IP address. For example, to use a certificate that was issued to http://salesreports, the IP address you specified must resolve to a server named salesreports.
