Is the print driver on the Citrix server hosting the application?

the printer is shared throught active directory , so I am assuming the driver resides on server itself where it is being shared from.

To make sure I understand, are you saying the driver is installed on the Citrix server?  If so, can you connect to the share logged on as administrator and print?
