The NTR and the NT were exactly the same casing and dimensions:
The main differences between the two models were: the NTR had a faster
processor, a larger ROM, was PostScript Level 2 compliant, and included a
Centronics parallel port.

I always thought it was part of the default startup page. You should be
able to use a copy of the LaserWriter Utility or the Apple Printer
Utility which shipped with the OS to activate this setting.
Alternatively, use a PostScript download tool like the Adobe Downloader
utility, and send the following Postscript code to the printer:
/Courier findfont 12 scalefont setfont
30 700 moveto
(The total number of pages printed is: ) show
statusdict begin pagecount 10 string cvs show
The Adobe Downloader can be grabbed here:
Still want more? I have the entire set of Adobe PostScript (Level 2)
reference manuals in PDF format: PostScript Red Book (Language Reference
Manual 2nd Edition), PostScript Blue Book (Tutorial & Cookbook),
PostScript Orange Book (Programming the Display PostScript System with
X), PostScript Operator Reference Supplement, and the PostScript Language
Reference Manual Supplement.
Contact me offline if you're interested.
I guess working for Adobe all those years ago had some advantages, eh?
