I could use some help from you guru's out there.

Just installed SQL Server 2005(all components) on my home pc, Vista Business, 64 bit.

Everything works fine, can connect to DB Engine, SSAS and SSIS. However, I cannot connect to SSRS in SS Management Studio, nor Report Manager.

When I go to http://localhost/reports via Internet Explorer(run as admin) I get "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it (System).

I enabled IIS and Net Framework in Windows Features.

I can connect to Report Server through Report Server Config Manager.

On an old computer(32bit) I was able to successfully get this working.

I installed a default installation.

Thanks for reading and any suggestions and help.

Note: I am doing self-study training on my own, so I may be asking more very elementary questions. I posted the same question in the SS2005 Admin forum.

Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
