I take it you are referring to the old "windows only" printers...

The business class printers always worked fine.

I'm not sure if the current home printers would work or not, given that
they are no longer "windows only" and have support for OS X and wireless
printing from a mobile device.

Running iOS 7.1 - I'm no hardware guru, but I'm trying to configure

TYPE(*IPDS) AFP(*NO), I'm getting the error 'LAN attachment not
valid.' The help text says that a LAN device can only be configured
as IPDS if AFP(*YES) is specified.

I already have a twinax connected line printer configured as IPDS
printing barcodes, I just need to be able to do so on the LaserJet
also. Has anyone successfully configured a LaserJet to print
barcodes without AFP? Would you mind sharing the config if so?

I'd be greatly surprised if HP has made a LaserJet in the past decade
that could actually process a PCL or PostScript data stream (or even
just a pure text data stream) internally. Years ago, when I tried to
hook our HP 3055 all-in-one to an Affirmative Yestation terminal, it
didn't do anything at all.
