Adding an old Laserjet 4 Plus to a network

I have an old Laserjet 4 Plus printer which has an integrated network card. The model number of the card is ESI-2866. I have printed a config page from the printer and the only bit which seems to relate to networking is as follows:

MIO MENU

Netware = On
Pers NW = On
NWare ALS = Auto
Ethertalk = On
Etalk Phase = 2
Etalk ALS = Auto
PrintConfig = No

Does anybody know whether I have any chance of getting this up and running on our ethernet network? I have a spare print server which i know will work with it so if it's going to involve a lot of hassle using the integrated interface then i don't think I'll bother.

I see nothing in your network menu that would support TCP/IP, if you want to use that I would recommend using the spare print server.

looks like it supports Netware or Ethertalk (apple mac) only.

We use quite a few at work still and have no problems. The HP 4 plus will work fine on a TCP/IP network, try replacing the jet direct card and setting dhcp to enabled.
