    Hi Ponraj,
       As per your case ,I have been shared some steps below :
    1. Using external images in a ReportViewer report is not enabled by default
    2.you must set the EnableExternalImages property in your code
    3 You have to add some settings to the Web.config file to bypass the local proxy based on your network configuration.

    For your reference ,check the following links:

    I tried all this before itself. in my Code Behind i kept by default in ExtrernalImage = "true".
    Even though i tried putting proxy. it is not reading. 

    I am working for in house application. my IIS Server is not reading from NAS Server at all. ( all my image files are located in NAS Storage )
