If you want other people to access the Report Server you should definitely install it on a server. The IP would be the IP of whatever machine you install it onto.

I'd also recommend using a CNAME (alias of the server name) for the server. So instead of your end-users going to 

"https://C1-RPT-PROD.domain.com/Reports/browse" they would go to "https://reports.domain.com/Reports/browse"

Your infrastructure team should be able to set this up, as well as installing a wildcard certificate on the server.
