Client ReportViewer without direct connection to report services RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I have a three tier application (client, app server, data base + reporting service). In the client I want to use WinForm ReportViewer control to display RS reports. It’s a possibility to use this control via my app server to connect to reporting service. I want to avoid direct connection between client and reporting services. It’s possible this scenario or not?

     

    Thanks for your response

  • Unfortunately this is not a supported scenario, when the ReportViewer is used in Server Mode it requires a connection to the report server endpoint.

  • Thanks Matt

    It's another solution to display reports on client whiteout connecting directly to reporting services, using the application server as intermediary?

  • It is possible to render reports on the client using Local processing; however this would bypass your report server and you wouldn't have any of the features that are available when using the ReportViewer in Server mode.

  • Thanks again,

    I want on server side the rendering, onother posibility can be maybe to use a Web App on App server and in client using a Web Browser Control. What about of this idea?
