HP P2015dn Duplex
We have some P2015dn printers and want to trial having the duplex mode on by default.
I thought the option in the web admin for duplex mode would let me do this in one click, but it seems not.
Do I have to change the driver setting on every single PC?!
In a word - yes. The duplex mode has to be enabled by default on whatever machine you have set up to print using it. We deploy our printers each time users log in, so settings are instantly pulled from the shared printer on the print server - so, for us to enable it we simply need to change the defaults on the print server, and the next time users log in, that's what they get too.
If you don't deploy printers like that, but instead do it manually, you'll have to manually alter them on the machines I believe (although, I could be wrong).
Tried it in a classroom today and it turns out it feeds the paper through twice even if it is a 1 page document! :(
Going off topic but.. not a fan of this printer as it has had random occurences of not responding. Its on, ready and servers fine but printer wont respond. Turn off and back on and its fine.. really odd. Fortunately we only have a couple which arent used that much.
2015 not responding
We've got loads of 2015's and some of them do this random not responding trick. Nice to know we're not alone. I see they're now end of life and replaced with the 2055.
