    @Tim Brault :

    Please check the error log. The log file path for 2017 and above versions is: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services\SSRS\LogFiles
    Error log is very helpful for resolving issue.

    Modify the following information in the configuration file (rsreportserver.config) located at: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services\SSRS\ReportServer:

    <Add Key="SecureConnectionLevel" Value="0"/>

    Make sure the value is 0.

    Hi @Tim Brault

    Have you granted remote permissions? What does your URL look like? It should be "https://<servername>/reportserver". Please check this link to check the correct steps for remote management: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/report-server/configure-a-report-server-for-remote-administration?view=sql-server-ver16.

    If the error still occurs, please provide more detailed error information.

    Best regards,
