If your printer is like the printers I've had in the past, it has a
"straight through" path that you use for card stock and the like. You
also use the straight through path when you don't want the printer to
put a curl on your paper.

The straight through path is enabled by opening
a door in back, which serves as a tray. The pages pile on that tray in
reverse order, and you should have a box below it to catch any pages
that drop.

As a practical matter, if you're printing a multipage document, you'd
probably be better off with a shellscript that turns it to portrait.
