To use the Brother printer through a network, you need to configure the print server, and set up the computers
you use.
For Wireless Users (HL-4070CDW only):
1
To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother printer as close to the
network access point (router) as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between the two
devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your
documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as photos or multi-page documents with mixed text and large
graphics, you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer, or USB for the fastest
throughput speed.
Although Brother HL-4070CDW can be used in a both wired and wireless network, only either one of the
connection methods can be used at a time.

2 Network printer
In a smaller network of 2 or 3 computers, we recommend the Peer-to-Peer printing method as it is easier
to configure than the Network Shared printing method described on the following page. See Network
Shared printing on page 4.
Each computer must use the TCP/IP Protocol.
The Brother printer needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration.
If you are using routers, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother
printer.
The Brother printer can also communicate with Macintosh®. (TCP/IP compatible operating systems)

Introduction
Network Shared printing
1
In a Network Shared environment, each computer sends data via a centrally controlled computer. This type
of computer is often called a “Server” or a “Print Server”. Its job is to control the printing of all print jobs.

TCP/IP protocols and functionalities
1
Protocols are the standardized sets of rules for transmitting data on a network. Protocols allow users to gain
access to network connected resources.
The print server used on this Brother product supports the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol) protocol.
TCP/IP is the most popular set of protocols used for communication such as Internet and E-mail. This protocol
can be used in almost all operating systems such as Windows®, Macintosh® and Linux.
The following TCP/IP protocols are available on this Brother product.
Note
• You can configure the protocol settings by using the HTTP (web browser). See Configuring the protocol
settings on page 126.
• For the protocols of the security features, see Security protocols on page 125.

1
By using the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, the IP address can be automatically configured.
Note
To use the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, please contact your network administrator.
APIPA
1
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the BRAdmin software) or automatically (using a
DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server), the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol will automatically
assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255.
DNS client
1
The Brother print server supports the Domain Name Service (DNS) client function. This function allows the
print server to communicate with other devices by using its DNS name.
NetBIOS/IP
1
NetBIOS over IP basic functionality allows the Brother print server to appear in a Windows® network
neighborhood.
LPR/LPD
1
Commonly used printing protocols on a TCP/IP network.
Port9100
1
Another commonly used printing protocol on a TCP/IP network.
7
Introduction
SMTP client
1
1
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) client is used to send E-mails via Internet or Intranet.
IPP
1
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP Version 1.0) allows you to print documents directly to any accessible printer
via the internet.
mDNS
1
mDNS allows the Brother print server to automatically configure itself to work in a Mac OS® X Simple Network
Configured system. (Mac OS® X 10.2.4 or greater).
Telnet
1
The Brother print server supports Telnet server for command line configuration.
SNMP
1
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network devices including computers,
printers and terminals in a TCP/IP network.
Web server (HTTP)
1
The Brother print server is equipped with a web server that allows you to monitor its status or change some
of its configuration settings.
Note
We recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0® (or higher) or Firefox® 1.0 (or higher) for Windows® and
Safari™ 1.0 for Macintosh®. Please also make sure that JavaScript and Cookie are always enabled in

Configuring your printer for a network
with an Ethernet cable connection
2
Overview
2
Before using your Brother printer in a network environment, you must configure the TCP/IP settings. In this
chapter, you will learn the basic steps required to print over the network using the TCP/IP protocol.
We recommend that you use the automatic installer application on the CD-ROM we have provided with the
printer. By using this application, you can easily connect your printer to your network and install the network
software and printer driver which you need to complete the network configuration. You will be guided by the
on-screen instructions until you are able to use your Brother network printer. Please follow the instructions in
the supplied Quick Setup Guide.
If you want to configure your printer without using the automatic installer application, refer to the remainder
of this chapter for more information.
Note
If you do not wish to, or are unable to use the automatic installer or any of Brother’s software tools, you
can also use the printer’s control panel to change network settings. For more information, see Control
panel setup on page 108.
9
2
Configuring your printer for a network with an Ethernet cable connection
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
2
To use the printer in a networked TCP/IP environment, you need to configure the IP address and subnet
mask. The IP address you assign to the print server must be on the same logical network as your host
computers. If it is not, you must properly configure the subnet mask and the gateway address.
2
IP address
2
An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each computer connected to a network. An IP address
consists of four numbers separated by dots. Each number is between 0 and 255.
Example: In a small network, you would normally change the final numbers.
• 192.168.1.1
• 192.168.1.2
• 192.168.1.3
How the IP address is assigned to your print server:
2
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network (typically a UNIX®/Linux, Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista™, or Windows Server® 2003 network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may be the router.
For more information on DHCP, BOOTP and RARP, see Using DHCP to configure the IP
address on page 159, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 159 and Using RARP to configure
the IP address on page 160.
If you do not have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server, the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol will
automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. For more information on
APIPA, see Using APIPA to configure the IP address on page 161.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. However, you can
easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network. For information
on how to change the IP address, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 12.
10
Configuring your printer for a network with an Ethernet cable connection
Subnet mask
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
Example: Computer 1 can talk to Computer 2
2
• Computer 1
IP Address:192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0
• Computer 2
IP Address:192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0
Note
0 denotes that there is no limit to communication at this part of the address.
In the above example, we can communicate with anything that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.X.
Gateway (and router)
2
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the
network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a
destination is located at an external network, the router transmits data to the external network. If your network
communicates with other networks, you may need to configure the Gateway IP address. If you do not know
the Gateway IP address then contact your Network Administrator.

Configuring your printer for a wireless
network (For HL-4070CDW)

Overview
3
To connect your printer to your wireless network, you need to follow the steps in the Quick Setup Guide. We
recommend that you use the automatic installer application on the CD-ROM which we have provided with the
printer. By using this application, you can easily connect your printer to your wireless network and install the
network software and printer driver which you need to complete the configuration of your printer for a wireless
network. You will be guided by the on-screen instructions until you are able to use your Brother wireless
network printer. Please follow the instructions in the supplied Quick Setup Guide.
3
If you want to configure your printer without using the automatic installer application, please read this chapter
for more details on how to configure the wireless network settings. For information on TCP/IP settings, see
Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 12. Then, in Chapter 7: Network printing from Windows®:
NetBIOS Peer-to-Peer printing and Chapter 9: Network printing from Macintosh®, you will learn how to install
the network software and drivers into the operating system running on your computer.
Note
You can configure the printer’s TCP/IP settings using the control panel on the printer. For more
information, see Control panel setup in Chapter 10.

Connected to a wireless capable computer with an access point in the network
(Infrastructure mode)
3
This type of network has a central access point at the heart of the network. The access point can also act as
a bridge or a gateway to a wired network. When your Brother wireless printer is part of this network, it receives
all print jobs via the access point.

If your wireless access point (A) supports SecureEasySetup™, you do not need to use a computer to
configure the printer. The access point (router) and your printer can automatically negotiate using the
SecureEasySetup™ procedure.
3
A
Configuration temporarily using a network cable
3
If there is an Ethernet Hub or Router in the same network as the wireless access point of your printer, you
can temporarily connect the Hub or Router to the printer using an Ethernet cable (B), this is an easy way to
configure the printer. You can then remotely configure the printer from a computer on the network.
B
Configuration using a wireless computer.
3
If your computer has wireless capability, you will need to change the wireless settings of your computer to
Ad-hoc mode so you can directly connect and configure the printer.
19
Configuring your printer for a wireless network (For HL-4070CDW)
Wireless network terms and concepts
3
When you configure the wireless network printer, you must ensure that your wireless network printer is
configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of the main
terms and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network printer.
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
3
You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
SSID
3
Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
(Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
Channels
3
Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14
different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the number
of channels available are restricted. For further information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 165.
Authentication and encryption
3
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication
(how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device,
it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these
options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your
Brother wireless device supports.
Authentication methods
3
The Brother printer supports the following methods:
Open system
Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
Shared key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
The Brother printer uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
20
3
Configuring your printer for a wireless network (For HL-4070CDW)
WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK
Enables a Wi-Fi® Protected Access Pre-shared key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK), which enables the Brother
wireless printer to associate with access points using TKIP for WPA-PSK or AES for WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK (WPA-Personal).
LEAP
Cisco®LEAP (Light Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Cisco Systems, Inc. which
uses user ID and password for authentication.
Encryption methods
3
3
Encryption is used to secure the data that is sent over the wireless network. The Brother printer supports the
following encryption methods:
None
No encryption method is used.
WEP
By using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the data is transmitted and received with a secure key.
TKIP
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) provides per-packet key mixing a message integrity check and
rekeying mechanism.
AES
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is Wi-Fi® authorized strong encryption standard.
CKIP
The original Key Integrity Protocol for LEAP by Cisco Systems, Inc.
21
Configuring your printer for a wireless network (For HL-4070CDW)

64 (40) bit ASCII:
Uses 5 text characters. e.g. “WLLAN” (this is case sensitive).
64 (40) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data. e.g. “71f2234aba”
128 (104) bit ASCII:
Uses 13 text characters. e.g. “Wirelesscomms” (this is case
sensitive)
128 (104) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal data. e.g.
“71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa2ba”
WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and TKIP or AES
Uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that is more than 7 and less than 64 characters in length.
LEAP
Uses User ID and Password.
• User ID: less than 64 characters in length.
• Password: less than 32 characters in length.

Network printing from Windows®:
NetBIOS Peer-to-Peer printing
7
Overview
7
Brother print server range supports SMB (Server Message Block). This means that just like regular Windows®
computer's, Brother printers can appear in your network neighborhood. The main advantage of NetBIOS
printing is that you are able to print from legacy DOS applications that are running on computer's that are
connected to Microsoft® networks.
Note
• You must configure the IP address on your printer before you proceed with this chapter. See Chapter 2
for more information.
• The default password for Brother print servers is access.
• The default domain name of the print server is WORKGROUP, to change it use Web Based Management
(web browser), BRAdmin Professional or Web BRAdmin.

Print server configuration
7
In order for this function to work, you must correctly change the domain name or workgroup name to match
that of your network. Once this is done, the print server will appear automatically in your network
neighborhood and you will be able to send print documents to it without having to install additional software.
A domain offers centralized security management whereas a workgroup offers distributed security
management. The print server does not care if your network consists of a Workgroup or a Domain, the only
thing you must tell it is the name of the workgroup or domain. The Brother print server automatically has a
default workgroup/domain name of WORKGROUP. If you need to change name, you can configure the Brother
print server to recognize this. There are three ways of doing this. (If you are unsure about the name of your
workgroup or domain, look in the identification tab in your network applet).
Changing the Workgroup/Domain Name using the BRAdmin Professional utility
7
Note
• You cannot change the workgroup/domain name using the BRAdmin Light utility that was supplied on the
CD-ROM with your Brother product. Please use the latest version of BRAdmin Professional utility that is
available as a download from http://solutions.brother.com This utility is only available for Windows® users.
• The print server must have a valid IP address and your computer must also have a valid IP address; you
can configure the IP address by using BRAdmin Light or BRAdmin Professional. See Using the BRAdmin
Light utility to configure your network printer on page 12.
• The default password for Brother print servers is access.
a
Start the BRAdmin Professional utility (from Windows® 98/Me, Windows NT® 4.0, Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003), by clicking Start / All Programs 1 /

Network printing from Windows ®: NetBIOS Peer-to-Peer printing
f
Select NetBIOS tab. Enter a workgroup/domain name.
Note
Because of the way that Microsoft® networks work, the print server may take several minutes to appear in
the network neighborhood. You will also find that the print server may take several minutes to disappear
from the network neighborhood even if the printer is switched off. This is a feature of Microsoft® workgroup
and domain based networks.
Changing the Workgroup/Domain Name using Web Based Management (web browser)
7
7
You can also use a standard web browser to change the NetBIOS name. To do this, connect to the print
server using its IP address (see Using Web Based Management (web browser) to change the print server
settings on page 15) and then select the Configure NetBIOS option from the Network Configuration
screen, then enter your workgroup/domain name into the Domain Name text box. Make sure you submit the
changes (click Submit).
Changing the Workgroup/Domain Name using Telnet
7
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin Professional utility, you can use Telnet.
When you are connected to the print server, enter the default password access in response to the # prompt.
Type in anything in response to the Enter Username> prompt, you will then be at the Local> prompt.
Now enter the command:
SET NETBIOS DOMAIN domainname
EXIT
Where domainname is the name of the domain or workgroup that you are on. If you are not sure what your
domain name or workgroup name is, look in the Identification tab in your Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 network applet.

TCP/IP
10
This menu has seven sections: BOOT Method, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, IP Boot Tries,
APIPA and IPv6.
BOOT Method
This field displays methods to obtain the IP address using TCP/IP protocols.
• Auto
In this mode, the printer will scan the network for a DHCP server, if it can find one, and if the DHCP
server is configured to allocate an IP address to the printer, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP
server will be used. If no DHCP server is available, then the printer will scan for a BOOTP server. If a
BOOTP server is available, and it is configured correctly, the printer will take its IP address from the
BOOTP server. If a BOOTP server is not available, the printer will scan for a RARP server. If a RARP
server also does not answer, the IP address is scanned through APIPA facility, see Using APIPA to
configure the IP address on page 161. After it is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the
printer to scan the network for a server.
• Static
In this mode the printer’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked
to the assigned address.
• RARP
The Brother print server IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) facility on your
host computer. For more information on RARP, see Using RARP to configure the IP
address on page 160.
111
10
Control panel setup
• BOOTP
BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask
and gateway. For more information on BOOTP, see Using BOOTP to configure the IP
address on page 159.
• DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network (typically a UNIX®, Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP
address from a DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002 compliant dynamic
name services.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the
BOOT Method to Static, this will prevent the print server from trying to obtain an IP address from any of
these systems.
IP Address
This field displays the current IP address of the printer. If you have selected a BOOT Method of Static,
enter the IP address that you wish to assign to the printer (check with your network administrator for the
IP address to use). If you have selected a method other than Static, the printer will attempt to determine
its IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your printer will probably
be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact
your network administrator for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.
Subnet Mask
This field displays the current subnet mask used by the printer. If you are not using DHCP or BOOTP to
obtain the subnet mask, enter the desired subnet mask. Check with your network administrator for the
subnet mask to use.
Gateway
This field displays the current gateway or router address used by the printer. If you are not using DHCP or
BOOTP to obtain the gateway or router address, enter the address you wish to assign. If you do not have
a gateway or router, leave this field blank. Check with your network administrator if you are unsure.
IP BOOT Tries
This field displays how many times the printer attempts to scan the network to obtain the IP address
through the BOOT Method you have set (see BOOT Method on page 111). The default setting is 3.
APIPA
The setting of On will cause the print server to automatically allocate a Link-Local IP address in the range
(169.254.1.0 - 169.254.254.255) when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the
BOOT Method you have set (see BOOT Method on page 111). Selecting Off means the IP address
doesn’t change when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the BOOT Method you have
set. By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled. If you wish to disable the APIPA protocol, see Disabling the
APIPA protocol on page 118.
112
10
Control panel setup
IPv6
This printer is compatible with IPv6, the next generation internet protocol. If you want to use the IPv6
protocol, visit http://solutions.brother.com for more information.
Ethernet
10
Ethernet link mode. Auto allows the print server to operate in 100BASE-TX full or half duplex, or in 10BASE-T
full or half duplex mode by auto negotiation.
100BASE-TX Full Duplex (100B-FD) or Half Duplex (100B-HD) and 10BASE-T Full Duplex (10B-FD) or Half
Duplex (10B-HD) fix the print server link mode. This change is valid after the print server has been reset. The
default setting is Auto.
Note
If you incorrectly set this value, you may not be able to communicate with your print server.

Security features
12
Overview
12
In today’s world there are many security threats to your network and the data that travels over it. Your Brother
printer employs some of the latest network security and encryption protocols available today. These network
features can be integrated into your overall network security plan to help protect your data and prevent
unauthorized access to the printer. This chapter explains that various security protocols supported and how
to configure them.
Security terms
12
CA (Certificate Authority)
A CA is an entity that issues digital certificates (especially X.509 certificates) and vouches for the binding
between the data items in a certificate.
CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
A CSR is a message sent from an applicant to a CA in order to apply for issue of a certificate. The CSR
contains information identifying the applicant, the public key generated by the applicant and the digital
signature of the applicant.
Certificate
A Certificate is the information that binds together a public key with an identity. The certificate can be used
to verify that a public key belongs to an individual. The format is defined by the x.509 standard.
Digital signature
A Digital signature is a value computed with a cryptographic algorithm and appended to a data object in
such a way that any recipient of the data can use the signature to verify the data's origin and integrity.
Public key cryptosystem
A Public key cryptosystem is a modern branch of cryptography in which the algorithms employ a pair of
keys (a public key and a private key) and use a different component of the pair for different steps of the
algorithm.
Shared key cryptosystem
A Shared key cryptosystem is a branch of cryptography involving algorithms that use the same key for two
different steps of the algorithm (such as encryption and decryption).
124

Printing documents securely using IPPS
12
To print documents securely over the internet, you can use the IPPS protocol.
Note
• Communication using IPPS cannot prevent unauthorized access to the printer server.
• IPPS is available for Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003.
To use the IPPS protocol, the following printer settings are required.
A certificate and private key must be installed in the printer. For how to install certificate and private key,
see Creating and installing a certificate on page 132.
The HTTPS protocol must be enabled. To enable the HTTPS protocol, see Configuring the protocol
settings on page 126.
The basic steps for IPPS printing are the same as IPP printing. For detailed information, see Internet printing
for Windows® on page 101.
Specifying a different URL
12
Please note that there are several possible entries that you can enter for the URL field.
https://Common_Name/ipp
This is the default URL and we recommend that you use this URL. Please note the Get More Info option will
not display any printer data.
https://Common_Name/ipp/port1
This is for HP® Jetdirect® compatibility. Please note the Get More Info option will not display any printer data.
https://Common_Name/
12
Note
If you forget the URL details, you can simply enter the above text (https://Common_Name/) and the
printer will still receive and process data.
Where Common_Name is the Common Name that you assigned for the certificate, such as an IP address,
host name or domain name. For how to assign a Common Name for the certificate, see Creating and
installing a certificate on page 132.
• For example:
https://192.168.1.2/ (if the Common Name is the printer’s IP address)
https://BRNxxxxxx/ (if the Common Name is the printer’s host name)

Security features
Using E-mail notification with user authentication
12
To use the E-mail notification function via secure SMTP server that requires a user authentication, you need
to use POP before SMTP or SMTP-AUTH method. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from
accessing the mail server. You can use Web Based Management (web browser), BRAdmin Professional and
Web BRAdmin to configure these settings.
Note
You need to match the settings of POP3/SMTP authentication with one of the E-mail servers. Contact your
network administrator or your internet service provider about the configuration before using.
How to configure the POP3/SMTP settings using Web Based Management (web browser).
a
b
Start your web browser.
Type http://printer_ip_address/ into your browser. (Where printer_ip_address is the IP
address or the print server name)
For example:
http://192.168.1.2/ (if the printer’s IP address is 192.168.1.2.)
Note
If you have edited the hosts file on your computer or are using a Domain Name System, you can also enter
the DNS name of the print server. As the print server supports TCP/IP and NetBIOS, you can also enter
the NetBIOS name of the print server. The NetBIOS name can be seen on the printer settings page. The
NetBIOS name assigned is the first 15 characters of the node name and by default it will appear as
“BRNxxxxxx” for a wired network or “BRWxxxxxx” for a wireless network (where “xxxxxx” is the last six
digits of the Ethernet address).

Security features
Creating and installing a certificate
12
The Brother print server allows you to use SSL/TLS communication by configuring a certificate and
corresponding private key. This print server supports two certification methods. A self-signed certificate and
a certificate that is issued by a CA (Certificate Authority).
Using self-signed certificate
This print server issues its own certificate. Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS
communication without having a certificate from a CA. See Creating and installing self-signed
certificate on page 134.
Using a certificate from a CA
There are two methods for installing a certificate from a CA. If you already have a CA or if you want to use
a certificate from an outside trusted CA:
• When using a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from this print server. See Creating CSR and installing
a certificate on page 146.
• When importing a certificate and a private key. See Import and export the certificate and private
key on page 148.
Note
• If you are going to use SSL/TLS communication, we recommend that you contact your system
administrator before using.
• This print server stores only one pair of a certificate and a private key that you installed or previously
imported. This printer overwrites the certificate and the private key if you install a new one.
• When you reset the print server back to its default factory settings, the certificate and the private key that
are installed will be deleted. If you want to keep the same certificate and the private key after resetting the
print server, export them before resetting and re-install them. See How to export the certificate and private
key on page 149.
This feature can be configured using Web Based Management (web browser) only. Follow these steps to
access the configure certificate page using Web Based Management.

Start your web browser.
Type http://printer_ip_address/ into your browser. (Where printer_ip_address is the IP

Note
If you have edited the hosts file on your computer or are using a Domain Name System, you can also enter
the DNS name of the print server. As the print server supports TCP/IP and NetBIOS, you can also enter
the NetBIOS name of the print server. The NetBIOS name can be seen in the printer settings page. The

troubleshooting
13
I want to use a different Port number other than 631.
13
If you are using Port 631 for IPP printing, you may find that your firewall may not let the print data through. If
this is the case, use a different port number (port 80), or configure your Firewall to allow Port 631 data
through.
To send a print job using IPP to a printer using Port 80 (the standard HTTP port) enter the following when
configuring your Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 system.
http://ip_address/ipp
The Get More Info option in Windows® 2000 is not working
13
If you are using a URL of:
http://ip_address:631/ipp,
the Get More Info option in Windows® 2000 will not function. If you wish to use the Get More Info option,
use the following URL:
http://ip_address
This will then force Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 to use Port 80 to
communicate with the Brother print server.

13
If you cannot connect to the print server using your web browser it may be worth checking the Proxy
Settings of your browser. Look in the Exceptions setting and if necessary, type in the IP address of the
print server. This will stop your computer from trying to connect to your ISP or proxy server every time
you wish to look at the printer server.
Make sure that you are using the proper web browser, we recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0®
(or higher) or Firefox® 1.0 (or higher) for Windows® and Safari™ 1.0 for Macintosh®. Please also make

Why do I have to change my printer’s network setting to “Wired LAN” during setup although I am
trying to setup Wireless LAN?
13
If you are using Windows® 2000, Mac OS® X 10.2.4 or greater or your computer is connected to the wireless
network using a network cable, it is recommended you temporarily connect the printer to your access point,
hub or router using a network cable. You will also need to change your printer’s network setting to wired LAN
temporarily. Your printer’s network setting will be changed to wireless LAN automatically or during the course
of the setup.

Using services
A
A service is a resource that can be accessed by computers that wish to print to the Brother print server. The
Brother print server provides the following predefined services (do a SHOW SERVICE command in the
Brother print server remote console to see a list of available services): Enter HELP at the command prompt
for a list of supported commands.
Service (Example)
Definition
BINARY_P1
TCP/IP binary, NetBIOS service
TEXT_P1
TCP/IP text service (adds carriage return after each line feed)
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PostScript® mode)
PCL_P1
PCL® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PCL® mode)
BRNxxxxxx_P1_AT
LPD PostScript ® service for Mac OS® X
Where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for example, BRN310107_P1).
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
administrators)
A
For information on how to configure your network printer using the BRAdmin Light utility or Web Based
Management (web browser), see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 12.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
A
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the boot method
to static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying to
obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the boot method, use the printer’s control
panel LAN menu, BRAdmin application or Web Based Management (web browser).
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address
A
A
BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running
on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service; type man
bootpd or refer to your system documentation for information). BOOTP is usually started up via the
159
Appendix A
/etc/inetd.conf file, so you may need to enable it by removing the “#” in front of the bootp entry in that
file. For example, a typical bootp entry in the /etc/inetd.conf file would be:
#bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i
Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”.
Note
In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the“#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already
enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type
(1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the print server.
Unfortunately, the exact format for doing this is not standardized, so you will need to refer to your system
documentation to determine how to enter this information (many UNIX® systems also have template
examples in the bootptab file that you can use for reference). Some examples of typical /etc/bootptab
entries include:
BRN310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.168.1.2:
Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included
a download filename in the configuration file. If this is the case, simply create a null file on the host and specify
the name of this file and its path in the configuration file.
As with rarp, the print server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the printer is powered on.
Using RARP to configure the IP address
A
The Brother print server’s IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) facility on your host
computer. This is done by editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an
entry similar to the following:
00:80:77:31:01:07
BRN310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the print server and the second entry is the name of the print
server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).
If the rarp daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd,
rarpd -a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for
additional information). To verify that the rarp daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX®-based system, type
the following command:
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX®-based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Brother print server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when the printer is powered on.
160
A
Appendix A
Using APIPA to configure the IP address
A
The Brother print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, clients
automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server is not available. The device
chooses it's own IP address in the range 169.254.1.0 through to 169.254.254.255. The subnet mask is
automatically set to 255.255.0.0 and the gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0.
By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled. If you want to disable the APIPA protocol, you can disable it using
printer control panel. For more information, see Disabling the APIPA protocol on page 118.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. However, you can
easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network.
Using ARP to configure the IP address
A
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can
also use the ARP command. The ARP command is available on Windows® systems that have TCP/IP
installed as well as UNIX® systems. To use arp enter the following command at the command prompt:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
ping ipaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the print server and ipaddress is the
IP address of the print server. For example:
Windows® systems
A
Windows® systems require the dash “-” character between each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
ping 192.168.1.2
UNIX®/Linux systems
A
Typically, UNIX® and Linux systems require the colon “:” character between each digit of the Ethernet
address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
A
ping 192.168.1.2
Note
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the print server and
operating system) to use the arp -s command.
If there is a router, you may use BOOTP or other methods described in this chapter to enter the IP address.
If your administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP or RARP
your Brother print server can receive an IP address from any one of these IP address allocation systems.
In which case, you will not need to use the ARP command. The ARP command only works once. For
security reasons, once you have successfully configured the IP address of a Brother print server using the
ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The print server will
ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use Web Based Management
161
Appendix A
(web browser), Telnet (using the SET IP ADDRESS command) or factory reset the print server (which will
then allow you to use the ARP command again).
Using the Telnet console to configure the IP address
A
You can also use the Telnet command to change the IP address.
Telnet is an effective method to change the printer’s IP address. But a valid IP address must already be
programmed into the print server.
Type TELNET ipaddress at the command prompt of the system prompt, where ipaddress is the IP address of
the print server. When you are connected, push the Return or Enter key to get the “#” prompt, enter the
password access (the password will not appear on the screen).
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to this prompt.
You will then get the Local> prompt. Type SET IP ADDRESS ipaddress, where ipaddress is the
desired IP address you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.3
You will now need to set the subnet mask by typing SET IP SUBNET subnet mask, where subnet mask
is the desired subnet mask you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for
the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default subnet masks:
255.0.0.0 for class A networks
255.255.0.0 for class B networks
255.255.255.0 for class C networks
The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this
group ranges from 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.168.1.4).
If you have a gateway (router), enter its address with the command SET IP ROUTER routeraddress,
where routeraddress is the desired IP address of the gateway you wish to assign to the print server. For
example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.168.1.4
Type SET IP METHOD STATIC to set the method of IP access configuration to static.
To verify that you have entered the IP information correctly, type SHOW IP.
Type EXIT or CTR-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type “D”) to end the remote console session.
