hp deskjet 6127 network printing question

I love my hp deskjet 6127 network printer. It is networked and I have it working from within Linux (rh7.2). I share it between windows, linux and mac osx. If anyone is curious, the easiest thing is to use printtool configure a jetdirect queue on port 9100 at the printer's address. You want to use hpijs as a driver.

My question is - has anyone got duplexing working with this printer under linux, and if so, how? Did they specify multiple queues? (e.g. one for two sided, one for one-sided?)

Ok, I don't know how you set the queue up right now, but if you do like this, you should be albe to use duplex.

Set up another queue, choose jetdirect port on 9100 in printconf screen.

On next screen choose RAW printing queue.

Now you can just connect to this printer from the client and if client choose duplexing in his printer config screen he should get duplexing.

That only applies if the printer can handle duplexing.
When it comes to HP you usaually have to buy some extra things to get duplexing.
