I'm having problems with duplexing a printer(hp4100) on Windows 2003 server.  I have set up the printer, shared it, and set the printing preferences to duplex but when a user adds the printer the duplex setting is not passed on.

Is there anyway to force it to print duplex.

Thanks
CM

Hi,

Normally, if you set printing preferences on a Server 2003 with the PCL 5e drivers, these settings will need to be copied to the workstations. Do make sure these workstations are either 2000 or Xp, it will not work with 98, you will need to set the properties of these things manually.

Also, as stated, try using the PCL 5e drivers. PCL 6 drivers with server 2003 sometimes do strange things.. And check on the server to see if the settings are correct. Try to set these settings on the server...
