I believe it depends on where the report is run.

If on the client then it should print client side.

since this line runs on the server (in the code-behind) it will print on the server. you cannot print it on the client directly. you have to show the report and the user can print it.

protected void btnPrint_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        try
        {
            orptDoc = (ReportDocument)Session["report"];
            if (rbtList.SelectedItem.Value == "All")
            {
                fromPage = 0;
                toPage = 0;
            }
            else
            {
                fromPage = Convert.ToInt32(txtFrom.Text);
                toPage = Convert.ToInt32(txtTo.TabIndex);
            }
            if (txtCopies.Text !=string.Empty)
            {
                nCopies = Convert.ToInt32(txtCopies.Text);
            }
            orptDoc.PrintToPrinter(nCopies,false, fromPage, toPage);
        }

Above is my code.
When I press button on my browser (at client side), does print go from client machine? or Will it go from server where the application is deployed which locted somewher else?

Is the app running onthe client?  Is it installed on the client?

If it is a web page it is probaby running on the server and therefore will print there.

clicking the button will do a postback to the server and your code will run on the server. the report will be printed on the server.
