    What version of Crystal Reports are you using?

    Are you writing the application?

    If so what SDK are you using?

    • Install the printers on both the BOE Server and the work stations.

      Save the report against the printer to be used, if different than when Designed there is no way to do this without user interaction. If the reports are always going to be printed using the same printer as when designed then the user needs to install the printer locally also.

      Now when prining the reports should simply use the defaults saved in the Report file.

      And as Dell indicated, there is no control through URL reporting for printer info.

    Looking at the OpenDocument documentation, there is no way to set the printer settings when viewing reports through this type of URL.
