I have a Terminal Server 2008 with a Windows 7 Client that has a locally attached(LPT1) HP Laserjet 4200 With Duplex printer.  When printing locally, the duplex feature is available and works.  However, when I try to print from the Terminal Server, the duplex feature is not available and says that the duplex unit is not installed.  

The server is utilizing Easy Print.

Like you stated this is an old printer.  Do you have any other solutions.  I don't believe there is an updated print driver that I can find.

The solution of purchasing a new printer is not an economically acceptable solution.  I will work the issue out on my own.
