My experience with Datamax printers has been with the "prodigy" line.  I
don't know if the 4206 is the same or not...

The Prodigy printers use their own language, and are not compatable with
host print transform.  We have them attached through I-O 4440S devices
made by I-O Corporation.  We use TL Ashford's "Barcode/400" software to
generate the labels.

I've done some programming where I send codes to the printers directly, as
well...  but I'm pretty sure they don't work with Host Print Transform.
Its possible that they'd do plain text, tho... havent tried that.
