Default Accessing MSRS from Citrix

All,

I am getting a error "Unable to load client print protocol" while trying to print the reports from Citrix server.

The application was developed in ASP.net with SQL 2005 & Microsoft Reporting Services.
I can able to access this reports and print works fine if i am accessing this from local desktop.

anyway to point the reports to access the local printer?

Regards,
VB

I don't have much experience with Citrix but can tell you how the print feature works. When you use the client-side printing icon on the report toolbar, this invokes an ActiveX control that attempts to access your local printers using the Windows print service API. Since the client is running in a Citrix environment, it would attempt to access printers in that virtual Windows environment. If you can install a virtual printer in your Citrix profile and map it to a local printer, this might do what you want.

Bummer. It would be good to hear from someone with a Citrix background.
