printing from an ipad to an office printer through a citrix published app

is there any way to do that?  basically we manage a health application that we publish through citrix or remote desktop.  we have multiple practices connecting to this.  

they want to use ipads cause citrix receiver on an ipad works really well for this.  

only problem I can find is the lack of printing capability.  how can I set up a printer on the ipad that will be usable through citrix to print to network printers?

it looks like I need to create a port forward from our offsite servers to the printer in the local office.   we are using a cisco asa 5505 and I'm pretty rusty on cisco so I'll probably open another question for help on that issue.

ok... port forwarding issue done... now I just need one of our ipad users to test it... the one I normally have available is home sick today.
