This can be accomplish using the next command

lpr -P lj2100 -Z 600dpi,nup=4,a4,landscape FileToPrint

In nUp printing, there are 2 type of margins

1.- around the whole page (The printer minimum margins on each edge)
2.- around each page on a sheet (nUpMargin in PostScript points)

lpr -P lj2100 -Z 600dpi,nup=4,a4,landscape,nupmargin=25 FileToPrint
