Report Server Licence in a Production environment

Hey, I'm currently new to the BI community and am working on implementing a PBI report server solution for an organization. My question is pertaining to licences. We will be installing PBI RS to a VM in Production environment, since that's where the DB access is. However, we (obviously) do not have the permission to open Internet accesses in this environment due to security and practical reasons, which might make it difficult for me to log in to my MS ID.


My question is: is it possible for me to install PBI RS on my physical machine (to log in) and open a gateway which allows me to work on the VM so that I can access the data?

I do not understand... but for PBI RS installation you do not need log MS ID and do not need internet open connection.
