DLC/LLC Protocol - do I need to keep it on?

Hi!
I have a 4250N Printer setup for tcp/ip. Do I need to have dlc/llc enabled?
Can someone explain a full purpose of this protocol (Data Link Control/Logical Link Control), and why is being offered as default on windows network?
Thanks

Most old HP printers in a Windows NT environment needed the DLC/LLC protocol to correctly print. These days, all HP printers fully support TCP/IP and there is no need to use DLC/LLC any more.

The Data Link Control protocol; used with direct-connect printers and in some cases to connect Token-Ring networks with mainframe computers. It’s not a TCP/IP protocol, but it is related to International Standard Protocol IEEE 802.2. It cannot however be used to establish file and print connections to another computer.

Hope this helps!
