This post is meant as a mental note for not having to struggle with the problem again another time….
Some weeks ago I downloaded and Installed SQL Server 2016 CTP 3.2 and now I want to try the new Reporting Services Experience – with the Datazen part now almost fully integrated to Reporting Services. For that I also downloaded the SQL Server Mobile Report Publisher from here.

After configuring my SQL Server and Reporting Services to run on my local SQL Server box I am able to contact the report manager using the following url : http://localhost/reportserver
When you open the SQL Server Mobile Report Manager you are offered the possibility to connect to a SSRS instance.
Server address = localhost/reportserver, add user name and password and press connect.
The following error shows up:
If I try with : localhost/reports I get a 404 (not found). So is there really no way to connect to SSRS CTP 3.2 with the mobile report publisher?
Wait a minute, there is a new user experience in Report Manager like shown above, and this experience has also an URL : http://localhost/Reports_Preview
And if I add that url to the SQL Server Mobile Report Publisher (really need to find a shorter name for this one!!) I am able to connect.
Quite strange IMHO though that it is bound to a website visualisation.
Anyway I can move on and start using SSRS in CTP 3.2.
Happy mobile reporting !
