how to get duplex for Brother HL-5150D

I've looked about, unsuccessfully, to find out how to get duplex
printing on the Brother HL-5150D printer which is capable of duplex.
I've added the printer to CUPS using the web interface and have tried
setting 'Double-Sided Printing' option in CUPS to 'long side' but that
doesn't seem to help. None of lpr a postscript file nor printing from
Mozilla results in double sided output.

As a secondary concern, although I've set this printer to default under
CUPS it doesn't seem to be the default for lpq or Mozilla... will this
change upon a reboot or have I missed something?

Many thanks,
