Once we finish Installing ActiveReports Server, we want to verify that we have set it up correctly. Let's log into the Report Portal and look at a sample report. Use the administrator account that we created in the Server Configuration Wizard just after installation (user name: administrator, password: secret) to log in. Also, to verify whether we have set up the firewall correctly, try logging in from another PC. Note: Here, we are only displaying simple reports. For more details on how to use the Report Portal, watch for future blog articles, or see the product help on Managing Reports.
