    How do I tell my users to access a report server via a web browser from their desktop? What URL do they need to use to connect to the report server?
    Thanks in advance.

    The end users should type http://<Report Server Name>/Reports to access the reports.

    Thanks for the quick reply. What about security? Is that something I set up at the report server or the server itself?
    Again, many thanks.

    Yes if all the end users are in same domain then you need to setup security at Report Server (there are role based permissions). But if reports to exposed to internet (outside world) or even from different domains (with not trust relationship) then you may need to write security extensions in .net and use that.
