Produced output is meant for PS level 2 printers which don't support Duplex printing, but support Manual Feed. Once the first set of pages is printed (odd pages), manual feed is asked: introduce the odd pages to print the even pages on the other side.
Because there is usually a short time out for manually fed jobs, you should really be next to the printer. If ever the time out expired, use the option -b to send only the missing part.
Environment variables FIXPS, PSSELECT and PSSET, if defined, are used to find the tools.
