MacPlot raster configuration

I must configure MacPlot raster to plot raster and mainly Cad draws on an HP DesignJet 650C plotter trough an Ethernet lan connecting our four Macs (IIfx with sys 7.1, Quadra 700 with 7.5.3, 7100/66 with 7.5.5 and Q700 (+PPC upgrade card) with 7.1). The plotter has an HP directJet card. I'm not able to see the plotter in the chooser even if JetDirect card is correctly installed. Please, can you help me? Do i need another version of MacPlot (HP/GL2 InkJet or Professional)? What i mean is if Mac Plot Raster contains Apple Talk Printer Tool or if i must buy separately this utility.
Thx

Look at the JetDirect Card.  Is it multi protocol?  Is one of them PS Appletalk?  JetDirects can be either multi-protocol but serve only one at a time, or multi-protocol and spool everything.  Look to see which is active and/or running.  You will need to consult the Plotter manual for instructions on how to do that.
