How to print a .rdlc (SSRS) report as duplex mode ?

Hi,
  I need to print the report (.rdlc) in duplex mode. The report viewer always print the report in  ' Simplex mode'. I need to print my report in Duplex mode.

I have already rendered the report in to PDF.

Here is it:
 byte[] bytes = reportViewer1.LocalReport.Render("PDF", null, out mimeType, out encoding, out extension, out streamids, out warnings);

This report contains images as well as charecters !

If the report contains more than one page, i need to print it on the page one back side .
eg:

page 1 - paper 1 front side
page 2 - paper 1 back side
page 3 - paper 2 front side
page 4 - paper 2 back side.....................etc.

How can I print this report in Duplex Mode ...?
Any suggestions would be appreciated !

Thanks in advance. :)

First of all thanks for your support,

Actually I am not showing the report viewer to the user to select the printing options. There is only one print button (Windows Application ) for the user to perform the printing action and all the functionality that I mentioned above will do internally by code.

I got the solution from here  :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms252091.aspx

I just tuned some logic from this code to perform the duplex mode printing and setting the paper size, and its works fine! !!

Thanks......!    :)

What code are you using to print the PDF?  Because that's probably what you should be looking at...  Once you've called the LocalReport.Render method and rendered a PDF, it's no longer in the hands of SSRS...

Thanks ,
Printing is working fine after it render to pdf (in Duplex mode). But I need the same to be from the SSRS.

Can we able to set the Duplex Printing mode in the Report (rdlc) itself,
Is it possible ..?

Thanks again for your quick reply .! :)

What exactly do you mean with "But I need the same to be from the SSRS"?  Are you referring to the Print button in the Report Viewer?  If you click the print button there, you get a Print Dialog popup.  Through that popup you can change the printer properties, including double-sided printing.  But it actually doesn't have much to do with SSRS itself...

For the Printing  (for me it's A5 paper)  =>

     printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize = new PaperSize("PaperA5", 583, 827);
     printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.Margins = new System.Drawing.Printing.Margins(0, 0, 0, 0);
     printDoc.PrinterSettings.Duplex = Duplex.Vertical;
     printDoc.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(PrintPage);
     printDoc.Print();

Thanks, :)
