Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 - Can you push a file out to the client workstation


We currently use Citrix for only a few applications partically an application developed in house.

The application has the ability to generate a quote. When you click on the button to generate the quote, the document in this case being a PDF opens with the pdf viewer on the citrix server.

Is there a way to push the document out to the client computer, where the use can either open or save it. Similar to downloading a file from a web server.

Essentially I dont want to call any other application on the citrix server.

I know you can open the file on the citrix server then select to save it to the client workstation through my computer . But this wont do.

It has to be seamless, click on generate quote and the popup windows pops on the client workstation

When the PDF is created, and prior to it being displayed can the app not be recoded to save to a different location?

Failing that, perhaps use a PDF printer driver that can have its default location set?

Otherwise I can't really see another way around it.

problem is that I do want the document to open , only it needs to open on the client not the citrix session

You could create a startup script for the application, that before running maps the user home-drive to the session, then runs the app. There you have a place to save the file available for the customer.

The "opening part", you will have to modify the application to do it.
