Troubleshoot Web service issues in SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services

The Web service in my edition of SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services is not functioning properly. After a few minutes of browsing, I get the message, "This page cannot be displayed." Why is this happening?

It looks like you are using Network Service, which is a valid built-in account to use, and that you must be attempting to reach the Report Manager website. You must ensure that you have configured Reporting Services from the Reporting Services Configuration program in the SQL Server Configuration Tools program group. This is where you will go to configure the Web Service, Application Pool and Windows Service Identities. This step is often missed in SQL Server 2005.
