Joe,
  According to the configuration printout (Apple 16/600 and 12/600).  These
printers are configured for PCL datastreams and emulate HPIII Ds.  They have the
standard TCP/IP port configs as well (i.e. LPD @ 515, Telnet @ 23...).  They are
connected via ethernet to our WAN.  They have their IP addresses, so you can
print to them directly.  As a matter of fact, we currently print to them from 
our
MVS mainframe without a hitch.
