How do I set up an Apple LaserWriter Pro 630 on an ethernet network?  I have no documentation, and can find no reasonable help on Apple's web page.  There are no Macintoshes on the network the printer will be on.  UNIX and NT machines will be using the printer.  I have run the printer directly from an NT machine using an IEEE 1284 compliant cable.  I would now like to run it directly from ethernet.  The printer does have an ethernet port.

Give up.

Apples generally communicate via appletalk and making one speak NT can be a challenge.

Why don't you use your NT-server as a spooler for your MACs. Simply install SFM (Services for Macintosh) on your NT.

ONLY UNIX and NT machines will be using the printer.  No Macs will be using the printer.
