#6 lpr BSD/GNU differences

Hello,

I am using Debian 3.0 and the Debian GNUlpr 1.2
package. I am trying to build a printserver using Linux to
replace SunOS.
Some things are not working that used to work with
SunOS.
We print on Xerox DocuPrint 92C printers and i would like
to print duplex and select an output tray.

According to Xerox "Guide to Submitting Jobs from the
Client" v1.5.4, I should use this command:
lpr -Pxerox0 -C"(duplex,Outputbin=0)" ...

This works fine with SunOS but not with GNUlpr. I have
copied the exact command from SunOS to Linux.
Do you have any idea why this would not work?
The printer is a RAW LPD printer.

Thanks.
