some of the oki's & hp's wont duplex on the network without a print server, know it's a shot in the dark but is it connected to a print server or directly to the network.does it give any errors or just fail duplex and comes out single sided?
You need to set the duplexer to installed. For Vista this would be done as follows: go to the Printers folder, Right Click on the 5550, Run as Administrator, Properties, (continue), Device Settings, Installable Options, Duplex unit (set to Installed), Apply, OK.
Once you have done this in Vista the duplexer will work but the back side may print upside down regardless of the settings. This can be corrected with a patch available here.
I have had the problem, but it is easily fixed in Vista.

This download includes a Print Driver only. This driver makes it possible to use the basic functions for the printer. HP will not be providing a Full Featured Vista Software and Driver for this product; therefore, some functionality may be lost when you use this product with Windows Vista.
What you can try to do is...
Uninstall the Vista driver and install the XP driver... this has worked for some HP printers...
The in-OS and the Full Feature release drivers for some of our products have a problem with doing duplex jobs.
