Question:

If you are going to be printing to an HP JetDirect box, wouldn't that bypass NT and just use the lpd of the JetDirect box?

It is possible to setup lpd printing on a NT Box, IIRC. It's been a long time since I have had to do that.

As for barcodes. If your Unix box supports TrueType fonts you can download/purchase various barcode fonts. I have had great success using TTFonts for barcodes in the past.

With a google search you should be able to find various free fonts for simple stuff like Code39.

`man lpr`

This should document everything that you need to know...

Using Google, I was able to quickly find these two resources:

What OS are you using? I am familiar with the XFS under XFree86.

There are a bunch of different types of barcodes for many different types of application. To learn more about barcodes/fonts/applications I suggest a Google search.
