Search the list archives, Gary Kline is the latest to have worked out  
those specific details. I usually use apsfilter but haven't  
reinstalled it since the wipe and reinstall of my ports after  
upgrading to 7.0-stable. Most of my 12,000 pages were printed from  
MacOS X.

At another location I have a FreeBSD 5.4 or 5.5 machine with something  
like 600 days of uptime which uses apsfilter, ghostscript via hpdj  
driver, to the PCL-5 network interface on a Kyocera printer.  
Ironically the Kyocera has a postscript interface but we never figured  
out how/who was turning it off.

Know the hooks are there in the print system to enable duplex but  
haven't made much use of them from FreeBSD. Most all of my 12,000  
pages were duplex.
