I have a designjet 750C and use ghostscript.

My /etc/printcap contains:

plotter-raw|remote printer on plotter:\

>cat /var/lib/designjet
-sDEVICE=dnj650c  -sPAPERSIZE=a1 -sOutputFile=\|lpr\ -Pplotter-raw -

Works fine, but uses a bit of CPU on the computer hosting the print 

I have an entry in my /etc/hosts table giving the IP address for 
plotter which has a JetDirect card configured with IP enabled.

Hope this helps
