I don't know what type of printers are you talking about, but whith a P405, for example, you can add a Jetdirect HW and configure it, with Jetdirect or webjectadmin software to have an IP address and print from HP9000, HP3000, Linux, Windows,etc.
I have a laser, but the situation is the same, with a JetDirect configured card, I can print from a HP3000, HP9000 and W2000.
There are several JetDirect HW cards, so tell to your partner which can be the best solution for you.
Note that if you want to print from a HP3000 you must read npsamp.pub.sys.

The MPE/iX OS release 5.5 (and higher) provides Network Printing capability over IP address. The supported printer interface is JetDirect, printer must be talking PCL and PJL.
For more details in configuring and operating the network printer on MPE/iX, Please refer to the chapter 3 of the "Native Mode Spooler Reference" manual available at http://docs.hp.com/mpeix/onlinedocs/32650-90867/32

ESPUL, from RAC Consulting, and NBSPOOL from
Quest Software come to mind real quick.
