CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
CHAPTER ONE
11
1
TCP/IP Configuration
11
Assigning TCP/IP Information
11
Overview
The TCP/IP protocol requires that each device on the network have it's own
unique IP address. Use the following information to learn about IP address
configuration.
By default Brother Print / Fax servers have a sample IP address of 192.0.0.192,
however, you can easily change this IP address number to match with the IP
address details of your network. This can be done in any of the following ways:
1. MFC front panel setting.
®
®
2. BRAdmin application (for Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0/2000 using the
IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocol).
3. DHCP, Reverse ARP (rarp) or BOOTP.
4. The ARP command.
5. Brother BRCONFIG NetWare utility (A Novell Network is necessary).
Other ways to CHANGE the IP address once it is already set:
1.
2.
3.
4.
MFC front panel
TELNET
HTTP (Web browser)
Other SNMP based management utility
These configuration methods are described in the following paragraphs.
The IP address you assign to the Print / Fax 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 router (gateway).
1-1
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using the MFC front panel to allocate an IP
address.
Refer to chapter 2 for details on how to configure IP address information using
the MFC control panel. By using the front panel of the MFC, you can program
the IP address details at the same time that other MFC parameters are configured.
Using BRAdmin and the TCP/IP Protocol
to set the IP address
If your PC has only the TCP/IP protocol, do the following:
1. Select TCP/IP filter in the left frame of the main window.
2. Select the "Device" menu and choose the "Search Active Devices".
If the Print / Fax server is set to its factory default settings, it will not appear in
the BRAdmin screen, however, when you select the "Search Active Devices"
option, it will be found as an un-configured device.
3. Select the "Device" menu and choose the "Setup Unconfigured Device".
4. Select the MAC address of your Print / Fax server and click the
Configure button.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the MFC
configuration page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for information on how to
print the configuration page on your Print / Fax server.
5. Input the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway (If needed) of your Print
/ Fax server.
6. Click OK then select Close.
7. With the correctly programmed IP address, you will see the Brother
Print / Fax server in the device list.
1-2
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using BRAdmin and the IPX/SPX Protocol
to set the IP address
If your PC has Novell Netware Client software and is using the IPX/SPX
protocol, do the following:
1. Select IPX/SPX filter in the left frame of the main window.
2. Check the Print / Fax server name (the default node name will be
BRN_xxxxxx, where "xxxxxx" is the last six digits of the Ethernet
address (MAC address)).
If you cannot find your server name, select the "Device" menu and choose
"Search Active Devices" (you can also press the F4 key) and try again.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the MFC
configuration page. Refer to the NC-8100h Quick Setup Guide for information
on how to print the configuration page on your Print / Fax server.
3. Select the Print / Fax server that you wish to configure and double click
it. You will be asked for a password. The default password is "access".
4. Select the TCP/IP tab and set the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway
as needed.
5. Click OK.
1-3
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Changing the IP Address using the
BRAdmin application
®
®
Start the BRAdmin application (from Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0/2000).
The BRAdmin application can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols to
communicate with the Brother Print / Fax server. As the default IP address of
Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192, the Print / Fax server will probably be
incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme on your network. If you are
not using DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you will want to change the IP address.
There are two ways that you can do this from within BRAdmin.
1. Use the IPX/SPX protocol.
2. Use the TCP/IP protocol and let BRAdmin find the Brother Print / Fax
server. Double click the Print / Fax Server you wish to change the IP
Address and enter the password.
3. Select the TCP/IP tab and change the IP Address as necessary.
1-4
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using DHCP to Configure the IP address
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 NT /2000 or Novell Netware network) the
Print / Fax server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and
register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name
services.
If you do not want your Print / Fax server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or
RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD to static, this will prevent the Print /
Fax server from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To
change the BOOT METHOD, use the MFC’s front panel, TELNET (using the
SET IP METHOD command), Web browser or by using the BRAdmin
application.

CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using ARP to Configure the Print / Fax
server IP Address
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application, MFC front panel and your
network does not use a DHCP server, you can also use the ARP command. ARP
is the simplest method of configuring the Print / Fax server IP address. 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 the command prompt:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the Print / Fax
server and ipaddress is the IP address of the Print / Fax server. For example:
®
Windows Systems
®
Windows Systems require the colon ":" character in-between each digit of the
Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.189.207.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
Unix Systems
Typically, Unix systems require the hash "-" character in-between each digit of
the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.189.207.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router
between the Print / Fax 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 / Fax 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 / Fax server using the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP
command again to change the address. The Print / Fax server will ignore any
attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use a Web
Browser, TELNET (using the SET IP ADDRESS command) the MFC’s front
panel or factory reset the Print / Fax server (which will then allow you to use the
ARP command again).
To configure the Print / Fax server and to verify the connection, enter the
following command ping ipaddress where the ipaddress is the IP address of the
Print / Fax server.
For example:
ping 192.189.207.2
1-6
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using RARP to Configure the IP Address
Brother Print / Fax server 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
BRN_310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print / Fax server and the
second entry is the name of the Print / Fax 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 / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when
it is powered on.
1-7
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using BOOTP to Configure the IP Address
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 /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".
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 / Fax
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:
BRN_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN_310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.189.207.3:
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 / Fax server will load its IP address from the BOOTP
server when the MFC is powered on.
1-8
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Changing the IP Address settings with the
TELNET Console
You can also use the TELNET command to change the IP address.
Using TELNET is effective way, when you change the IP address. But a valid IP
address must already be programmed into the Print / Fax server.
If you are using the TELNET, you will be expected to enter the password of the
Print / Fax server. Press RETURN and enter the default password of "access" in
response to the "#" prompt (it will not echo).
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 / Fax server
(check with your network manager for the IP address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.189.207.3
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 / Fax server (check with your network manager 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:
255.255.255.0
255.255.0.0
255.0.0.0
for class C networks
for class B networks
for class A 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 192 through 255 for Class C
networks (e.g., 192.189.207.3), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1).
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 / Fax server. For example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.189.207.1
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.

STATIC mode
In this mode the MFC IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP
address is locked to the assigned address.
AUTO mode
In this mode, the MFC 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 MFC,
then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will used. If no DHCP server is
available, then the MFC will scan for a BOOTP server. If a BOOTP server is
available, and it is configured correctly, the MFC will take its IP address from the
BOOTP server. After it is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for
the MFC to scan the network for a server.
If your MFC supports “POWER SAVE mode” and you are using the AUTO
Boot mode, POWER SAVE must be set to OFF.
RARP mode
Brother Print / Fax server 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
BRN_310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print / Fax server and the
second entry is the name of the Print / Fax 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 / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when
it is powered on.
BOOTP mode
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 /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".

CHAPTER 2 FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU
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 / Fax
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:
BRN_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN_310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.189.207.3:
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 / Fax server will load its IP address from the BOOTP
server when the printer is powered on.
DHCP mode
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated
mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have DHCP Server in your network
®
®
(typically a Unix, Windows NT /2000 or Novell Netware network) the Print /
Fax server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and
register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name
services.
If you do not want your Print / Fax server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or
RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD to static, this will prevent the Print /
Fax server from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To
change the BOOT METHOD, use the print front panel (for those printers that
have a LCD panel, TELNET (using the SET IP METHOD command), Web
browser or by using the BRAdmin application.

by the mail server. You can turn on this feature through the Web Management
utility or the LAN function mode.
Using Scan to E-mail
Scan to E-mail gives users the capability of scanning documents directly from the
MFC to E-mail accounts anywhere in the world in either black and white (Mono)
or color. The documents arrive in the E-mail inbox as file attachments. They can
®
®
be viewed using Microsoft Imaging supplied with the Windows Operating
Systems. Alternatively there is a viewer supplied on the CD-ROM of your MFC.
Before attempting to Scan to E-mail please see Getting Connected on Page 2.
The method of sending documents with Scan to E-mail is the same as sending an
Internet Fax as described above on Page 3.
When using Mono Scan to E-mail, documents will be transmitted in TIFF-F file
format at Standard or Fine mode (i.e. 200 × 100 / 200 × 200DPI). Even if you
select S. Fine mode or Photo mode, your document always will be transmitted in

by the mail server. You can turn on this feature through the Web Management
utility or the LAN function mode.
4-5
CHAPTER 4 INTERNET FAX
Receiving E-mail or Internet Fax
There are 2 ways you can receive E-mail messages:
•
•
POP3 receiving at regular intervals
POP3 receiving (manually initiated)
Using POP3 receiving the MFC machine must poll the E-mail server to receive
the print jobs. This polling can occur at set intervals (for example, you can
configure the MFC to poll the E-mail server at 10 minute intervals) or you can
manually poll the server by pressing the Shift + Start button.
If your MFC starts to receive E-mail print jobs, the LCD panel will reflect this
activity. For example, you will see "RECEIVING" on the LCD panel followed
by "xx MAIL(S)". If you press the Shift + Start buttons to manually poll the Email server for E-mail print jobs and there are no mail documents waiting to be
printed, the MFC will display "NO MAIL" on the LCD panel for two seconds.
If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received data will be
held in the MFC’s memory. This data will be printed automatically after paper is
re-inserted into the machine. Memory receive must be switched “ON”.
If the received mail is not in a plain text format or an attached file is not in the
TIFF-F format, the following error message will be printed: “ATTACHED FILE
FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED. FILE NAME:XXXXXX.doc” If the received
mail is too large, the following error message will be printed: “E-MAIL FILE
TOO LARGE.” If “Delete POP Receive Error Mail” is “ON” (default) then error
mail is automatically deleted from the E-mail Server.

CHAPTER 4 INTERNET FAX
Receiving an Internet Fax to a PC
When a PC receives an Internet Fax document, the document is attached to
a mail message that informs the PC that it is receiving a document from an
Internet Fax. This is notified in the Subject field of the received mail
message.
®
If the PC to which you wish to send a document is not running Windows 95/
®
®
98/98SE/Me or Windows NT 4.0/2000 operating system, please inform the PC’s
owner that software must be downloaded for documents in the TIFF-F format to
be viewed.
You can download a TIFF-F viewer from the Brother Web site
®
(http://www.solutions.brother.com). You can also use “ Microsoft Imaging” that
®
®
®
is supplied with Windows 95/98/Me or Windows NT 4.0/2000 but some older
®
versions of Windows 95 do not support viewing TIFF-F documents.
Forwarding Received E-mail and Fax
Messages
You can forward received E-mail or standard fax messages to another E-mail
address or fax machine. Received messages can be forwarded via E-mail to a PC
or Internet Fax. They can also be forwarded via standard phone lines to another
MFC.
Please see your MFC User guide to check that this feature is supported. This
function is only for monochrome models.
This can be done using the Web Management Utility or through the front panel.
The steps for configuring Fax Forward can be found in the User Guide supplied
with your MFC.
4-7
CHAPTER 4 INTERNET FAX
Relay Broadcasting
This function allows the Brother MFC to receive a document over the Internet,
and then relay it to other fax machines through conventional telephone lines.
If you wish to use your MFC as a relay broadcast device, you must specify the
domain name that you trust at the MFC, in other words, the portion of the domain
after the ‘@’ sign.
A trusted domain refers to the E-mail address. For example, if your address is
bob@brothernjk.com, then we identify the domain as brothernjk.com. If your Email address is jack@brothernjk.com, then we identify the domain as
brothernjk.com.
Use care in selecting a trusted domain since any user on a trusted domain will be
able to send a Relay Broadcast.
Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum of 48 Fax
machines through conventional telephone lines.
This function is only for monochrome models.

Relay Broadcast from a MFC
FAX@brother.com
123456789
UKFAX@brother.co.uk
INTERNET
UKFAX@brother.co.uk(fax#123456789)
Your MFC has an E-mail address of FAX@brother.com, you wish to send a
document from this machine to another MFC in England with an E-mail address
of UKFAX@brother.co.uk, this machine will then forward the document to a
standard FAX machine using a conventional telephone line. If your E-mail
address is FAX@brother.com, you must configure a trusted domain name of
brother.com on the machine in England that will broadcast the document to the
conventional FAX machine. If you do not enter the domain name information,
then the machine in the middle (the machine that will broadcast the document)
will not trust any internet jobs that it receives from the MFC machine in the
@brother.com domain.
After the trusted domain is set you can send the document from your MFC
[I.E. FAX@brother.com] by entering the E-mail address of the MFC
[I.E. UKFAX@brother.co.uk] that will forward the document followed by the
phone number of the fax that will receive the document. The following is an
example of how to enter the E-mail address and phone number.
UKFAX@brother.co.uk(fax#123456789)
E-mail address
Fax Phone Number
The word “fax#” must be
included with the phone
number inside the parenthesis.
Sending to multiple phone numbers:
If you want to have the document relayed to more than one standard Fax machine
the address can be entered using the following method:
1. Enter the phone number of the first Fax machine
UKFAX@brother.co.uk(Fax#123).
2. Press the “Set” key.
3. Enter the phone number of the second Fax machine
UKFAX@brother.co.uk(Fax#456).

FAX machine that will receive the relayed E-mail will vary depending on the
mail application you are using. The following are some examples of different
mail applications:
Some E-mail applications do not support sending to multiple phone numbers. If
your E-mail application cannot support multiple phone numbers you will only be
able to relay to one Fax machine at a time.

CHAPTER 4 INTERNET FAX
TX Verification Mail
Transmission Verification Mail supports two separate functions. Verification
Mail for sending allows you request notification from the receiving station that
the I-Fax or E-mail was received and processed. Verification Mail for receiving
allows you to transmit a default report back to the sending station after
successfully receiving and processing an I-Fax or E-mail.
To use this feature you must set the “Notification” option within the “Setup Mail
RX” and “Setup Mail TX” options.
Setup Mail (TX)
You can set the “Notification” option in the “Setup Mail TX” option to either ON
or OFF. When switched to ON an additional field of information is sent with the
image data. This field is named “MDN”.
MDN
Mail Disposition Notification – This field requests the status of the I-Fax / E-mail
message after delivery through the SMTP (send mail transfer protocol) transport
system. Once the message has arrived at the Receiving station this data is used
when the MFC or user reads or prints the received I-Fax or E-mail. For example,
if the message is opened for reading or is printed the receiving station sends back
a notification to the original sending machine or user.
The receiving station must support the MDN field in order to be able to send a
notification report, otherwise the request will be ignored.
Setup Mail (RX)
There are three possible settings for this option ON/MDN/OFF.
Receive Notification “ON”
When switched to “ON” a fixed message is sent back to the sending station to
indicate successful reception and processing of the message. These fixed
messages depend on the operation requested by the sending station.
Report messages consist of
SUCCESS: ……………………..
or
FAILURE: ………………………
4-11
CHAPTER 4 INTERNET FAX
Receive Notification “MDN”
When switched to “MDN” a report as described above is sent back to the sending
station if the originating station sent the “MDN” field to request confirmation.
Receive Notification “OFF”
OFF – Switches all forms of receive notification OFF, no messages are send back
to the sending station regardless of the request.
Error mail
If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet Fax, the mail server will
send an error message back to the MFC and the error message will be printed. If
there is an error while receiving mail, an error message will be printed
(Example: “The message being sent to the MFC was not in a TIFF-F format.”).
Important information on Internet Fax
Internet Fax Communication on a LAN system is basically the same as
communication via E-mail; however, it is different from Fax communication
using standard phone lines. The following is important information for using
Internet Fax:
•
•
•
•
•
Factors such as the receiver’s location, structure of the LAN system, and
how busy the circuit (such as the internet) is, may cause the system to take a
long time to send back an error mail. (normally 20 sec to 30 sec).
In the case of transmission through the Internet, due to its low level of
security, we recommend that you use standard phone lines to send
confidential documents.
If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME format, you
cannot transmit a document to the receiver. Depending on receiver’s server,
there may be some cases in which the error mail will not be sent back.
If the size of a document’s image data is huge, there is a possibility of
unsuccessful transmission.
You cannot change font and character size of Internet mail that you received.

Overview
®
®
Users of Windows NT can print directly to a network ready Brother MFC using
®
®
®
the TCP/IP protocol. Microsoft Windows NT 3.5x and NT 4.0 users must
®
install Microsoft's "TCP/IP printing" protocol. Windows 2000 users are able to
send print jobs directly to the printer without installing any additional software.
Quick Tips:
1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the MFC’s front panel, the BRAdmin application, or let
your DHCP server allocate an IP address.
2. Refer to chapter 1 of this user guide to learn how to configure the IP
address on your MFC.
3. The default password for Brother Print / Fax servers is "access".
®
®
®
®
4. Windows NT 3.51 and Windows NT 4.0 users must install the
"Microsoft TCP/IP printing" protocol (available through the control
panel applet).
®
5. Windows 2000 users can print using TCP/IP using the standard
Network Printing software and IPP protocol software built into any
®
Windows 2000 installation.
®
6. Windows 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP protocol via
a Windows® 2000 computer providing that the Microsoft Internet Print
Services software is installed on the client PC, IIS is installed and
®
running on the Windows 2000 computer and that the client PC is using
version 4 or later of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
7. The default name for a Brother Print / Fax server is usually
BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address
of the Print / Fax server).

Microsoft's Windows 95/98/Me operating systems features built-in networking
®
capabilities. These capabilities allow a Windows PC to be configured as a client
workstation in a file server based network environment.
®
For smaller networks, Windows 95/98/Me also allows the PC to operate in a
peer-to-peer mode. In this mode, the PC can share resources with other PCs on
the network without the need for a central file server.
Quick Tips:
1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the MFC’s front panel, the BRAdmin application, or let
your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2. Refer to chapter 1 of this user guide to learn how to configure the IP
address on your MFC.
3. The default password for Brother Print / Fax servers is "access".

95/98/Me/NT /2000
Overview
Brother's Print / Fax server range supports SMB (Server Message Block) over the
TCP/IP protocol via the NetBIOS interface. This means that just like regular
®
Windows PC’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 PC’s that are connected to Microsoft
networks.
Quick Tips:
1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the MFC’s front panel, the BRAdmin application, or let
your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2. Refer to chapter 1 of this user guide to learn how to configure the IP
address on your printer.
3. The default login names are “user” for users and “admin” for
administrators and the default password for Brother Print / Fax servers is
"access".
4. The default domain name of the Print / Fax server is WORKGROUP, to
change it use your web browser or the BRAdmin application.
7-1
CHAPTER 7 NETBIOS PEER-TO-PEER PRINTING
Print / Fax Server Configuration
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 / Fax 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. However, in some instances you may find that your Windows
®
®
95/98/Me and Windows NT 4.0/2000 systems may receive "Printer is busy"
error messages when more that one person attempts to access the MFC. In this
instance Brother has provided the "Brother NetBIOS Port Monitor" software
which allows users to continue spooling print jobs while the printer is busy, down
or out of paper. The port monitor will hold the jobs until the printer is again
available.
®
When you install Windows 95/98/Me you are asked which workgroup you
®
belong to, the default workgroup name for Windows 95/98/Me is
"WORKGROUP", however you could change this to anything you want. With
®
®
Windows NT , Microsoft introduced the concept of "Domains". A domain
offers centralized security management where as a workgroup offers distributed
security management. The Print / Fax 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 / Fax server automatically has a
default workgroup/domain name of "WORKGROUP". If you need to change
name, you can configure the Brother Print / Fax server to recognize this. There
are four 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).
•
•
•
•
Use BRAdmin (this utility can use the TCP/IP protocol or Netware IPX
protocol - no file server necessary).
Use a Web browser, (the Print / Fax 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.
TELNET, again your computer and printer must have a valid IP address.
Use BRCONFIG for DOS (this utility requires a Netware file server and the
IPX protocol).
Because of the way that Microsoft networks work, the Print / Fax server may
take several minutes to appear in the network neighborhood. You will also find
that the Print / Fax 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.
7-2
CHAPTER 7 NETBIOS PEER-TO-PEER PRINTING
Changing the workgroup/domain name
using TELNET or BRCONFIG or a web
browser
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application or a web browser, you can use
TELNET or the BRCONFIG Remote console program (BRCONFIG requires the
IPX/SPX protocol to be installed on your PC).
When you are connected to the Print / Fax 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 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 network applet.
You can also use a standard WWW browser to change the NetBIOS name, to do
this connect to the Print / Fax server using its IP address and then select the
"Configure NetBIOS" option from the Print / Fax server configuration screen,
enter you workgroup/domain name into the "Domain Name" text box. Make sure
you submit the changes.

"BNT". For example BNT1. Whichever name you choose, it must be
unique. Then press "OK". The name must be unique on your PC,
however other computers can use the same port name as the name you
specify on your PC.
8. You must now enter the server name and port name for actual Print / Fax
server. You can use the Browse button for searching the Print / Fax
server, select the domain/workgroup name, and then the server is listed.
If the Print / Fax server does not automatically appear in your browse
list, then you must ensure that the domain name is configured correctly.
Otherwise you must enter the name manually. The name should be
compliant with UNC (Universal Name Convention). For example
"\\NodeName\ServiceName".
Where NodeName is the NetBIOS name of the Brother Print / Fax server
(the default name is usually BRN_xxxxxx, where "xxxxxx" is the last
six digits of the Ethernet address), and ServiceName is the service name
for NetBIOS of the Print / Fax server, by default it is BINARY_P1. For
example:
\\BRN_310107\BINARY_P1
You can find the NetBIOS name and MAC address by printing out the MFC
configuration page. Refer to the User’s Guide for information on how to print the
configuration page on your Print / Fax server.

Overview
®
®
Brother's Brother Internet Print (BIP ) software, for Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0,
allows a PC user at one location, to send a print job to a Brother Printer at a
remote location via the Internet. For example, a user on a PC in New York could
print a document directly from his Microsoft Excel application program to a
printer in Paris.
®
Windows 2000 users can also use this BIP software, but are recommended to
®
use the IPP protocol support that is part of the Windows 2000 operating
®
systems. Skip to the “Windows 2000 IPP Printing” section of this document.
Quick Tips:
1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the MFC’s front panel, the BRAdmin application, or let
your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2. Refer to chapter 1 of this user guide to learn how to configure the IP
address on your printer.
3. The default password for Brother Print / Fax servers is "access".
®
4. Windows 2000 users can print using TCP/IP using the standard
Network Printing software and IPP protocol software built into any
®
Windows 2000 installation.
®
5. Windows 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP protocol via
Windows®2000 computer providing that the Microsoft Internet Print
Services software is installed on the client PC, IIS is installed and
running on the server and that the client PC is using version 4 or later of
Microsoft Internet Explorer.

CHAPTER 8 BIP INTERNET PRINTING INSTALLATION
Brother Internet Print
General Information
®
®
The BIP software is installed using a standard Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0
®
®
Installation Wizard. It creates a virtual port on the Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0
PC that operates in a similar way to the standard LPT1 printer port from the
®
Application program point of view. The user can use the Windows
®
95/98/Me/NT 4.0 Print Manager to create a printer that uses this port along with
®
®
®
a standard Windows 95/98/Me, NT 4.0-compatible printer. Any Windows
®
95/98/Me/NT 4.0 applications program can therefore print to this printer (and
hence to the virtual port) without modification or operational procedure.
When a job is printed to the BIP virtual port, it is actually MIME-encoded
(converted to a standard Internet E-mail message) and sent out to a Brother Print
/ Fax server at the remote location using Winsock This means that BIP is
compatible with most common E-mail software packages. The only requirement
is that the E-mail server be capable of sending E-mail message over the Internet.
In more detail, the procedure works in the following way:
•
If you are connected to a Local Area Network, the E-mail message is passed
to the E-mail server, which in turn transmits the message out over the
Internet using the SMTP protocol (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) to the
remote Print / Fax server.
•
If you are connecting via a modem directly to an Internet Service Provider
(ISP), the ISP handles the routing of the E-mail to the remote Print / Fax
server.
•
At the remote site, an E-mail server receives the E-mail message. The
remote Print / Fax server, which has its own E-mail address, uses the POP3
protocol (Post Office Protocol 3) to download the E-mail message from the
server. It then decodes the attachment and prints it out on the printer.
If an E-mail is received that has not been configured to use the BIP virtual port
driver, the printer will print the e-mail out as a text document.

Configuring the Brother Print / Fax server
The Print / Fax server can be configured using BRAdmin, by using a web
browser, or by using the TELNET command.
Print / Fax server Configuration Checklist
Before configuring the Print / Fax server to receive BIP jobs, be sure that the Email server at the remote site (the receiving end) is configured to handle the
TCP/IP POP3, and SMTP protocols (SMTP is only required if the notification
feature is enabled).
1. Configure the POP3 server on the E-mail server at the remote site with a
mail account (Mailbox name) and password for the Brother Print / Fax
server (generally, the mail account name will be the first part of the
Email address; for example, if you assign the Email address
emailprinter@xyz.com, then the mail account name would be
emailprinter).
2. Make sure that the Print / Fax server is installed and running with
TCP/IP enabled and has a valid IP address assigned to it.
Because access to the E-mail server on most networks is usually restricted, you
may need to have your network administrator check the configuration and add
the mail account.

Using BRAdmin to Configure the Print / Fax
server
Skip this section if you wish to use the Print / Fax server remote console or Web
Browser to configure the Print / Fax server.
Using the BRAdmin application, you can configure the Brother Print / Fax server
using the TCP/IP protocol, or the IPX protocol.
The steps required to configure the Print / Fax server to receive print jobs from a
®
®
Windows 95/98//Me/NT 4.0. PC running the BIP software is as follows:
1. Start BRAdmin.
2. Select the node name of the desired Brother Print / Fax server from the
list and double clicking on it. (the default node name is usually
BRN_xxxxxx, where "xxxxxx" is the last six digits of the Ethernet
address (MAC address)). You will be prompted for a password, the
default password is "access".
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the MFC’s
configuration page. Refer to the Quick Network Setup Guide for information on
how to print the configuration page on your Print / Fax server.
3. Click on the Internet tab.
4. Enter the IP address of the POP3 server (consult your network
administrator if you do not know this address).
5. Enter the mailbox name for the remote Brother Print / Fax server.
Usually this will be the first part of the E-mail address (for example, if
the E-mail address of the Print / Fax server is emailprinter@xyz, then the
mailbox name would be emailprinter).
6. Enter the password for the mailbox, if any.
7. The Print / Fax server is configured by default to poll the POP3 server
every 10 minutes. You may change this value, if desired.
8. If you have enabled notification, enter the IP address of your SMTP
server (consult your network administrator if you do not know this
address).
9. Press the OK button and save the changes. Now exit the BRAdmin

Overview
Brother Print / Fax servers allow NetWare client PCs to print jobs on the same
printer as TCP/IP or other network protocol users. All NetWare jobs are spooled
through the Novell server and delivered to the printer when it is available.
Quick Tips:
1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the print front panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin
application, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
printer.
2. The default password for Brother Print / Fax servers is "access".
9-1
CHAPTER 9 NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING
General Information
In order to use a Brother Print / Fax server on a NetWare network, one or more
file servers must be configured with a print queue that the Print / Fax server can
service. Users send their print requests to the file server's print queue, and the
jobs are then spooled (either directly, or in the case of remote printer mode, via
an intermediate Print / Fax server) to the appropriate Brother Print / Fax server.
The system administrator can create Bindery (NetWare 3), NDS (NetWare 3 and
NetWare 4) based queues in a single environment without having to switch
between applications by using the BRAdmin application.
NetWare 5 users wishing to configure an NDPS printer must use the NWADMIN
application supplied with NetWare 5. Please note that it is possible to create IPX
BINDERY or NDS based queues on a NetWare 5 system using the BRAdmin
application.
You must install the Novell NetWare Client 32 if you wish to create queue
information on your NetWare servers using the BRAdmin application.
If you can't use the BRAdmin application in your environment, you can create
the queue using the traditional NetWare PCONSOLE utility or NWADMIN
utilities, but you will then also need to use the Brother BRCONFIG utility,
TELNET or a WWW browser to configure the Print / Fax server as described
later in this chapter.
Brother Print / Fax servers can service up to 16 file servers and 32 queues.
9-2
CHAPTER 9 NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING
Creating a NDPS Printer Using NWADMIN
for NetWare5
With NetWare 5, Novell has released a new preferred printing system called
Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS). Before the Print / Fax server can be
configured, NDPS must be installed on the NetWare 5 server and an NDPS
Manager configured on the server.
For further information regarding NDPS printers and printing please refer to the
“Other Sources of Information” section at the end of this chapter.
NDPS Manager
This creates a NDPS manager that interacts with services running at the server
and manages an unlimited number of printer agents.
You have to create an NDPS manager within an NDS tree before creating serverbased printer agents. If the NDPS manager controls a printer attached directly to
the server, you must load the manager on the server that the printer is attached to.
1. In NetWare administrator, navigate to the area you want the NDPS
manager to reside. Select Object | Create | NDPS Manager and click OK.
2. Enter an NDPS manager name.
3. Browse to a server (which has NDPS installed but no NDPS manager
installed) where you want to install the NDPS manager and then to the
volume you want the NDPS manager database assigned to. Click create.
NDPS Broker
When NDPS is installed, an NDPS broker is loaded onto the network. One of the
Broker services Resource Management Service allows Printer Drivers to be
installed onto the server for use with Printer Agents.
To add a Printer Driver to the Broker:
4.

Configuring DLC on Other Systems
To use DLC on other network systems, you will generally need vendor-supplied
software. Typically such software will support the Brother Print / Fax servers.
Follow the vendor's instructions to install the DLC protocol on your system.
Once the protocol is installed, create a network port in the same way that you did
®
®
for Windows NT in the previous sections. The MAC address (Ethernet address)
of the Print / Fax server should automatically appear during the configuration
process.
The final step is to create a printer using the normal operating system printer
setup method. The only difference is that instead of connecting the printer to the
LPT1 parallel port, you point it to the network port you just created.
®
Brother does not recommend using the DLC protocol with Windows for
Workgroup 3.11 in a peer-to-peer configuration if the printer will be heavily
used. This is because jobs may be rejected due to print spooler timeouts. The best
solution in these situations is to set up one PC as a server for handling network
print jobs. All of the other PCs send their print jobs to the server PC using
NetBEUI or TCP/IP, and the server PC then uses DLC to send the print jobs to
the Brother Print / Fax server.

Unix Printing
Printing from Unix/Linux using
TCP/IP
Overview
Brother Print / Fax servers are supplied with the Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite. Since virtually all UNIX host
computers support TCP/IP, this capability allows a printer to be shared on a
UNIX Ethernet network.
The Linux operating system uses the same setup procedures as standard Berkeley
UNIX systems. Refer to this chapter for a typical GUI based Linux installation.
Quick Tips:
1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the print front panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin
application or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the MFC.
2. Refer to ‘chapter 1’ of this user guide to learn how to configure the IP
address on your MFC.
3. The default password for Brother Print / Fax servers is "access".
4. The default name for a Brother Print / Fax server is usually
BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address
of the Print / Fax server).
5. When configuring the PRINTCAP file, pay particular attention to the
service names, BINARY_P1 and TEXT_P1.
12-1
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
TCP/IP
Brother Print / Fax servers appear to the network as a UNIX host computer with
a unique IP address running the lpd, line printer daemon, protocol. As a result,
any host computer that supports the Berkeley remote LPR command can spool
jobs to Brother Print / Fax servers without the need for any special software on
the host computer. For special applications, raw TCP ports are also available.
The Brother NC-8100h Print / Fax server also support the FTP protocol. This
protocol can be used to send print jobs from Unix systems.
The Brother Print / Fax server is pre-configured to run on a TCP/IP network with
a minimum of setup. The only mandatory configuration the Print / Fax server is
the allocation of an IP address, which can be either automatically assigned using
DHCP, BOOTP etc., or manually assigned using the ARP command, BRAdmin,
the MFC’s front panel, etc.
For setting the IP address of the Print / Fax server, refer to chapter 1 of this user
guide.
12-2
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
General TCP/IP UNIX Host Configuration
The configuration process for most UNIX systems is described in the following
steps. As this process varies, we recommend that you refer to your system
documentation (or man pages) for additional information.
1. Configure the /etc/hosts file on each UNIX host that needs to
communicate with the Print / Fax server. Use your favorite editor to add
an entry to the /etc/hosts file containing the IP address and node name of
the device. For example:
192.189.207.3
BRN_310107
The actual format of the entry may vary depending on your system, check your
system documentation and also note the format of other entries in the etc/hosts
file.
The node name in this file does not necessarily need to be the same as the one
that is actually configured into the Brother Print / Fax server (the name that
appears on the printer configuration page), however, it is good practice to make
the names the same. Some operating systems, such as HP/UX, do not accept the
"_" character in the default name, for these systems you must use a different
name).
In any case, the node name in the /etc/hosts file must match the node name in the
/etc/printcap file.
Some systems such as HP/UX and AIX allow you to enter the IP address as the
host name when setting up the print queue. If this is the case, you do not need to
configure the hosts file.
12-3
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
2. Choose which Print / Fax server service you want to use. There are
several types of services available on Brother Print / Fax servers. Binary
services pass data through unmodified and are therefore required for
PCL or PostScript rasterized graphics printouts. Text services add a
carriage return at the end of each line for proper formatting of UNIX text
files (which end in linefeed and do not have carriage returns). The text
service can also be used for non-rasterized graphics, such as ASCII
PostScript graphics or many types of PCL graphics.
Choose one of the available services (a service name will be used in step
3):
BINARY_P1
TEXT_P1
Binary data
Text data (CR added)
You may set up multiple print queues on your UNIX host computer for
the same Print / Fax server, each one with a different service name (for
example, one queue for binary graphics jobs and one for text jobs).
3. Configure the /etc/printcap file on each host computer to specify the
local print queue, the Print / Fax server name (also called remote
machine or rm), and the Print / Fax server service name (also called
remote printer, remote queue, or rp), and the spool directory.
This step applies to the majority of UNIX systems, including Linux, Sun OS (but
not Solaris 2.xx), Silicon Graphics (lpr/lpd option required), DEC ULTRIX, DEC
OSF/1, and Digital UNIX. SCO UNIX users should follow these steps, but
should also refer to the SCO UNIX Configuration section. Users of RS/6000
AIX, HP/UX, Sun Solaris 2.xx, and other systems that do not use the printcap file
should skip to section 3-a. SCO user’s should also skip to section 3a (SCO uses
the printcap file, but this file is automatically configured via the rlpconf
command).
12-4
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
An example of a typical printcap file:
laser1|Printer on Floor 1:\
:lp=:\
:rm=BRN_310107:\
:rp=TEXT_P1:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/laser1:
Make sure this information is added to the end of the printcap file. Also make
sure that the last character in the printcap file is a colon ":".
This will create a queue named laser1 on the host computer that communicates to
a Brother Print / Fax server with a node name (rm) of BRN_310107 and a service
name (rp) of TEXT_P1 printing text files to a Brother printer through spool
directory /usr/spool/lpd/laser1. If you are printing binary graphics
files, you would use the service BINARY_P1 instead of TEXT_P1.
The rm and rp options are not available on some UNIX systems, so if necessary
check your documentation (or man pages) to determine the equivalent options.
Users of Berkeley-compatible UNIX systems can use the lpc command to obtain
the printer status:
%lpc status
laser1:
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no entries
no daemon present
Users of AT&T-compatible UNIX systems can generally use the lpstat or rlpstat
commands to obtain similar status information. Because this procedure varies
from system to system, refer to your system documentation for the exact usage.
4. Skip this section if you have completed Step 3, unless you have an SCO
UNIX system.
If you have an HP/UX system, IBM RS/6000 AIX computer, or Sun Solaris
2.xx, there is no printcap file. This is also true for some other AT&T-based
UNIX systems, as well as many VMS-based TCP/IP software packages (for
example, UCX, TGV Multinet, etc.). On SCO systems, there is a printcap
file, but it is automatically configured by the rlpconf command. Most of
these systems generally use a printer setup program to define the service
name (remote printer), the Print / Fax server name (remote machine) or IP
address, and the local queue name (spool directory). Refer to the appropriate
section depending on your version of Unix.
12-5
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
Linux Configuration
If you do not wish to use the command line interface to configure your Linux
distribution, you may wish to use the Linux Printer System Manager application
on your GUI. To do this, do the following:
1. From the Linux Printer System Manager screen, click the "Add" button.
2. You will now be asked to specify which Printer type you are using,
select the "Remote Unix (lpd) Queue" option and click "OK".
3. You must now specify the remote host name, remote queue name and
the input filter to use.
4. The "Remote Host" name is the IP address of the printer, or the name
from the hosts file which corresponds to the IP address of the printer.
5. The "Remote Queue" name is the service name that the printer will use
when processing the data. Generally we recommend that you use the
name "BINARY_P1", however, if you are planning to send text
documents that do not have a carriage return and a line feed, then use
"TEXT_P1".
6. Select the appropriate "Input Filter" from the list of available printers on
your particular build of Linux.
In order to make your settings work, select the "Restart lpd" option. As soon as
the lpd server restarts, you will be able to send printed documents from your
server.
12-6
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
HP/UX Configuration
In the case of HP/UX10.xx, the sam program is used to set up the remote printer.
The steps are as follows:
1. Execute the sam program. From the list of options, select Printers and
Plotters.
2. Select LP Spooler.
3. Select Printers and Plotters.
4. Select Actions and then Add Remote Printer/Plotter.
5. Enter any name as the Printer Name (this will be the name of the print
queue).
6. Enter the IP address of the Print / Fax server as the Remote System
Name.
7. Enter the desired Print / Fax server service name as the Remote Printer
Name.
8. Check the box next to Remote Printer is on BSD system.
9. You may accept the default values for the remaining items.
10. Click OK to configure the printer.
You should now be able to print using the lp-d command with the printer name.
If you are using the HP distributed print service, the configuration procedure is
slightly different because you are sending the print jobs to a file server, which in
turn spools the job to the Print / Fax server. You must therefore know the name
of the file server (spooler host) in addition to the above information. You will
add a physical and a remote printer and a remote printer, and then assign a logical
printer to the remote printer (a unique name that does not match any other name).
To print, use the lp -d command with the logical printer name.
Earlier versions of HP/UX use similar procedures to 10.xx users:
1. Enter sam and select Peripheral Devices and then Add Remote Printer
(not Networked printer).
2. Enter the following remote printer settings (the other settings do not
matter):
3. Line printer name (user-selectable).
4. Remote system name (the Print / Fax server name; must match what is in
hosts file or use Print / Fax server IP address).
5. Remote printer queue (Printserver binary or text service name, e.g.
BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
6. Remote Printer is on a BSD System (Yes).
12-7
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
IBM RS/6000 AIX Configuration
The RS/6000 AIX operating system uses the smit program to set up the remote
printer. The procedure is as follows for AIX 4.0 and later:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Enter smit and select "devices".
Select "Printer/Plotter".
Select "Print Spooling".
Select "Add a Print Queue".
Select "Remote".
Enter the following Remote Printer Settings:
Name of queue (user selectable)
Host name of Remote Printer (Print / Fax server name; must match name
in /etc/hosts file or use the Print / Fax server IP address)
Name of queue on remote printer (Print / Fax server binary or text
service name, eg. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
Type of print spooler. BSD (press the LIST button and choose BSD)
The procedure for pre-V4.0 systems is as follows.
1.
2.

Select "client services".
Select "remote printer queues".
Select "add a remote queue".
Enter the following remote queue settings:
Name of queue to add (user selectable)
Activate the queue (Yes).
Destination host (Print / Fax server name; must match name in /etc/hosts
file or use the Print / Fax server IP address)
11. Name of queue on remote printer (Print / Fax server binary or text
service name, eg. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1)
12. Name of device to add (user selectable; for example lp0)
12-8
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
Sun Solaris 2.x Configuration
Sun Solaris 2.x uses the lpsystem and lpadmin programs for remote printer
configuration:
lpsystem -t bsd prnservername
lpadmin -p queue -s prnservername!prnserverservice
accept queue
(not required on newer Solaris
systems)
enable queue
(not required on newer Solaris
systems)
Where queue is the name of the local print queue.
prnservername is the name of the Print / Fax server (must match the entry in
the /etc/hosts file or IP address).
prnserverservice is the Print / Fax server BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1
service.
If this is the first printer configured, you must also use the lpsched command
prior to the accept command.
As an alternative, you may use Printer Manager in the Admintool utility under
OpenWindows. Select Edit, Add, and Add Access to Remote Printer. Then enter
the Print / Fax server name in the format
prnservername!\prnserverservice as described above. Make sure
that the Printer Server OS is set to BSD (the default setting), and click Add.
Note that we recommend that you use the /etc/hosts file for the printer name
rather than NIS or other name services. Also note that due to a bug in the Sun lpd
implementation on Solaris 2.4 and earlier releases, you may experience problems
printing very long print jobs. If this is the case, a workaround is to use the raw
TCP port software as described later in this chapter.
12-9
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
SCO UNIX Configuration
To configure a printer in version Version 5.x of SCO Unix, use the SCOADMIN
program.
1. Select Printers and then Print Manager.
2. On the menu select Printer and then Add Remote followed by Unix…
3. Enter the IP address of the Print / Fax server and type in the printer name
to be used to spool to.
4. Deselect "Use External remote Printing Protocol…".
5. Edit the /etc/printcap file to include formfeed add the text rp=lpaf .
SCO UNIX requires TCP/IP V1.2 or later to work with Brother Print / Fax
servers. You must first configure the /etc/hosts and /etc/printcap files as
described in step 2. Then run the sysadmsh program as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
Select Printers.

Enter the name of the print queue you entered in the /etc/printcap file as
the Printer name.
Enter anything as the Comment, and Class name.
For the Use printer interface select "Existing".
Press the F3 key to get a list of available interface, and select the desired
one as the Name of interface using the cursor keys ("Dumb" is a good
choice).
Select "Direct" as the Connection.
Enter the desired Device name (/dev/lp generally works).
Select "Hardwired" as the Device.
Select "No" for the Require banner field.
Older SCO Unix Systems
The Brother NC-8100h Print / Fax servers supports the FTP protocol. Earlier
SCO Unix systems are often configured to print using the FTP protocol.
12-10
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
DEC TCP/IP Servers for VMS(UCX)
You need to run the sys$system:ucx:$lprsetup command, specify a printer name,
and then enter the Print / Fax server IP address as the remote system name.
Specify one of the Print / Fax server services (see beginning of this section for
options) as the remote system printer name (accept the defaults for other
questions).
TGV's Multinet
TGV's Multinet requires you to run the MULTINET CONFIGURE /PRINTERS
command, then use the ADD command to add a printer, specifying the Print /
Fax server IP address, a protocol type of LPD, and one of the service options
described at the beginning of this section as the remote print queue.
Wollongong's PATHWAY
First make sure that you have the Access option with lpd enabled. Then enter the
Print / Fax server name and IP address in the
TWG$TCP:[NETDIST.ETC]HOSTS file, run the LPGEN program, and execute
the command: add queue/rmachine=prnservername/rprinter=prnserverservice,
where queue is the name of the queue, prnservername is the Print / Fax server
name from the hosts file, and prnserverservice is the Print / Fax server service
name.
IBM/AS4000
To use a Brother Print / Fax server with an IBM AS/400 running IBM’s TCP/IP
gateways services for OS/400 (the OS/400 system must be v3.1 or later).
Use the CFGTCP command at your OS/400 prompt to add the Print / Fax
server’s TCP/IP address to the AS/400 host table.
Use the following one-line OS/400 command to create the LPD queue:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(<queuename> RMSTSYS
(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTO(<service>)
AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE (*OTHER)
MFRTYPMDL (<driver>)
INTNETADR(‘<ipaddress>’) TEXT
(‘<description>’)
where <queuename> is the new AS/400 print queue name, <service> is the Print /
Fax server service name, BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1, <driver> is the OS/400 printer
driver name (*HP4 is recommended if in doubt), and <ipaddress> is the IP address of
the Print / Fax server.Note that the IP address and description must be enclosed in
single quotes.
12-11
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING
Other Systems
Other systems use similar programs to set up Print / Fax servers. These programs
will generally ask for the following information:
Requested information:
remote printer
remote host computer name
You should use:
Binary or Text service name
Any name (must match the name in the
printcap file, if any) or in some cases,
you may enter the Print / Fax server IP
address here
IP address of Print / Fax server.
remote host IP address
Technical support specialists for these companies can usually answer
configuration questions if you provide them with the equivalent UNIX
configuration information (tell them that the Print / Fax server looks like a
remote UNIX host computer running the lpd line printer daemon).
If you have not created a spool directory for the Brother Print / Fax server on
your UNIX host computer, you will need to do so now (the printer setup utilities
in HP/UX, AIX, Solaris 2.xx, and other systems will automatically create the
spool directory). The lpd spool directory is usually located in the /usr/spool
directory (check with your system manager to see if the location is different for
your system). To create a new spool directory, use the mkdir command. For
example, to create a spool directory for the queue laser1, you would enter:
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/laser1
On some systems it is also necessary to start the daemon. This is done on
Berkeley-compatible UNIX systems with the lpc start command as shown in the
following example:
lpc start laser1

Overview
This chapter describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you may
encounter with a Brother Print / Fax server, it is divided into the following
sections:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Installation Problems
Intermittent Problems
Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting
Internet Fax Troubleshooting
13-1
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
Installation problems
If you cannot print over the network, check the following:
1. Make sure that the printer is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.
Verify that the printer and the configuration are good by printing the
configuration page. Refer to the NC-8100h Quick Network Setup Guide
for information on how to print the configuration page on your Print /
Fax server. If the test fails, check:
a.
If the LED is not blinking after connected to the network, then the
network firmware settings may be corrupted. Please refer to step 3.
b.
In this event, try to restore the factory default settings of the Print /
Fax server by pressing the TEST switch on the back panel of the
printer for longer than 5 seconds. Once you have done that, switch
the printer off and then on again, and try to print out the
configuration page.
2. If the configuration page prints but you cannot print documents, try the
following.
If none of the following steps are successful, there is almost certainly a hardware
or network problem!
13-2
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
a.
If you are using TCP/IP:
Try pinging the Print / Fax server from the host operating system
command prompt with the command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the Print / Fax server IP address (note that in
some instances it can take up to two minutes for the Print / Fax
server load its IP address (after setting the IP address). If a
successful response is received, then proceed to the UNIX, TCP/IP
®
®
®
Windows NT /LAN Server, Windows 98/95/Me Peer to Peer
(LPR), Internet Printing or Web Browser troubleshooting section.
Otherwise, proceed to step 3, and then go to TCP/IP Trouble
shooting section.
b.
If you are using Novell system:
Verify that the Print / Fax server can be seen on the network. To do
this, login as the SUPERVISOR (not as someone with supervisor
privileges) or ADMIN (for Netware 4 or later servers), go into
PCONSOLE or NWADMIN, select PRINT / FAX SERVER
INFORMATION, and select the name of the Print / Fax server
(make sure that you have entered the Print / Fax server name). If
you can see Print / Fax server Status and Control in the menu, then
the Brother Print / Fax server is visible to the network, proceed to
the Novel NetWare Installation Troubleshooting Section.
Otherwise, go to step 3.
c.
If you are running Apple Talk for Macintosh:
Make sure that you can see the Print / Fax server name under the
HL-1200/MFL-Pro icon in the Chooser. If it is visible, then the
connection is good, so proceed to the AppleTalk for Macintosh
Section. Otherwise, go to step 3.
13-3
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
3. If you cannot make any of the connections in step 2, check the
following:
a.
Make sure the printer is powered on and on-line.
b.
Verify that the cabling, network connection, and print out a
configuration page in the Network STATISTICS information to see
if bytes are being transmitted and received.
Check to see if there is LED activity.
c.
•
•
•
No Light:
If the LED (Link Activity) is off, then the Print / Fax server is not
connected to the network.
Orange: Fast Ethernet
The LED will be Orange if the Print / Fax server is connected to a
100BaseTX Fast Ethernet network.
Green: 10BaseT Ethernet
The LED will be Green if the Print / Fax server is connected to a
10BaseT Ethernet network.
The LED will blink if the Print / Fax server is receiving or
transmitting data.
When the Print / Fax server is receiving packets continuously, the
LED might look ‘off’.
If you are using a repeater or hub, make sure that SQE (heartbeat) is
turned off at the hub (if applicable). Also, if you have a hub or
multi-port repeater, verify that the hub or repeater port is good by
trying the Print / Fax server on a different port or on the other hub or
multi-port repeater.
4. If you have a bridge or router located between the Print / Fax server and
host computer, make sure that the device is set up to allow the Print /
Fax server to send and receive data from the host. For example, a bridge
can be set up to only allow certain types of Ethernet addresses to pass
through (a process known as filtering); therefore, such a bridge must be
configured to allow Brother Print / Fax server addresses. Likewise, a
router can be set up to pass only certain protocols, so be sure that the
desired protocol can be passed through to the Print / Fax server.
13-4
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
Intermittent Problems
If the Print / Fax server and printer start up OK, but you intermittently have
problems printing, check the following:
1. If you can print small jobs but large graphics jobs are distorted or
incomplete, make sure that you have adequate memory in your printer
and the latest printer driver installed on your computer. The latest
Brother printer drivers can be downloaded from
http://solutions.brother.com.
2. Check the individual protocol troubleshooting sections in this chapter for
additional causes of intermittent printer problems.
13-5
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
TCP/IP Troubleshooting
If you are using TCP/IP and cannot print to the Print / Fax server and you have
checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, then check
the following:
It is always a good idea to try following in order to eliminate the possibility of
Setup errors.
Turning off the printer and then again,
Deleting and recreating the Print / Fax server and creating a new print queue in
order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors.
1. The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP address.
Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the Print / Fax server
(via the configuration page). Make sure that no other nodes on the
network have this address (DUPLICATE IP ADDRESS ARE THE
BIGGEST CAUSE OF TCP/IP PRINTING PROBLEMS).
2. If you used BRCONFIG, NCP or ccr to enter the IP address, make sure
that you exited the remote console properly with a CTRL-D or EXIT and
that you turned the printer off and then again (it may take up to two
minutes for the IP address to take effect).
3. Make sure that the TCP/IP protocol of the Print / Fax server is enabled.
4. If you used rarp, make sure that you started the rarp daemon on any
workstation using the rarpd, rarpd-a, or equivalent command. Verify that
the /etc/ethers file contains the correct Ethernet address and that the Print
/ Fax server name matches the name in the /etc/hosts file.
5. If you used bootp, make sure that you started the bootp daemon on any
UNIX workstation and bootp is enabled (i.e., the "#" is removed from
the bootp entry) in the /etc/bootptab file is correctly configured.
6. Also verify that host computer and the Print / Fax server are either on the
same subnet, otherwise that the router is properly configured to pass data
between the two devices.
13-6
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
UNIX Troubleshooting
1. Make sure that the /etc/printcap file (if applicable) is typed in correctly.
In particular, look for missing ":" and "\" characters, because a small
error anywhere in the file can have major consequences. Also check the
/usr/spool directory to make sure that you have created a valid spool
directory.
2. If you are using a Linux operating system, the X-Window Print tool
program that is included with Linux may not properly configure the
etc/printcap file for lpd operation, then you might also edit the

6. If you are having trouble printing more than one job at a time, try
increasing the IP timeout using the SET IP TIMEOUT command or
using BRAdmin.
7. If text or PCL jobs are run together, try setting the service (remote
printer) with EOT set to string number 2 (<ESC>E). For example:
SET SERVICE BRN_xxxxxx_P1 EOT 2
8. If the lines of a text file are staggered, make sure that you have specified
a remote printer (rp) name of TEXT in your /etc/printcap file.
9. If you are using Sun Solaris V2.4 or earlier, there is a bug which causes
long print jobs to fail when using a Print / Fax server. If you are having
trouble printing long jobs (over 1MB), add the line mx#0 to your
etc/printcap file entry.
10. If you cannot print from DEC TCP/IP Service for VMS (UCX), make

13-10
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
Brother Internet Print (TCP/IP)
Troubleshooting
1. The first step in troubleshooting is to make sure that you have a valid Email connection on both the sending PC and the receiving Print / Fax
server. Try sending an E-mail message from the PC to a user at the
remote site who can receive mail via the POP3 server. If this does not
work, there may be an E-mail configuration problem on the PC, on the
local E-mail server, or on the remote POP3 server. Double check to
make sure that the E-mail parameters that you configured on the PC and
on the remote Print / Fax server match those that are configured on the
E-mail servers.
2. If you can print small files OK but are having problems printing large
files, the problem may be in the e-mail system! Some E-mail systems
have difficulties printing large files. If the file does not reach its
destination intact, then the problem is with the E-mail system.
3. You can also enable the partial e-mail print facility on your client PC,
this will split the e-mail up into fragments which should then not
overwhelm your e-mail server. To do this, select the property dialog of
the Brother Internet Print Port.

CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
Windows® 95/98/Me/2000 FTP/IPP
Troubleshooting
Want to use a different Port number other than 631
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 system.
http://ip_address/ipp

If you are using a URL of:
http://ip_address:631 or 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:

This will then force Windows 2000 to use Port 80 to communicate with the
Brother Print / Fax server.
®
®
Windows 95/98/Me clients not able to get the driver from a Windows 2000

13-12
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
Novell NetWare Troubleshooting
If you cannot print from NetWare and you have checked the hardware and
network as described in the previous steps, first verify that the Brother Print / Fax
server is attached to the server queue by going to PCONSOLE, selecting PRINT
QUEUE INFORMATION, and then CURRENTLY ATTACHED SERVERS. If
the Print / Fax server does not appear in the list of attached servers, then check
the following:
It is always a good idea to try followings in order to eliminate the possibility of
setup errors.
•
Turning off the printer and then on again to force to rescan the Netware
queue.
•
Deleting and recreating the Print / Fax server and creating a new print queue
in order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors.
1. If you changed the login password, you must change the password in
both the Brother Print / Fax server (using the SET NETWARE
PASSWORD command if you are using the BRConfig software) or by
using a web browser or the BRAdmin application and in the file server
(using the PCONSOLE Print / Fax server Information Change Password
command).
2. If you created the print queue using PCONSOLE and instead of
BRAdmin, make sure that you have enabled at least one NetWare file
server using the SET NETWARE SERVER servername ENABLED
command.
3. Have you exceeded your NetWare user limit?
4. Make sure that the Print / Fax server name you used in PCONSOLE
exactly matches the name that is configured in the Print / Fax server, and
make sure it is defined as a Queue Server for the print queue.
5. If you are running both 802.3 and Ethernet II frames on different file
servers on your network, there is a possibility that the Print / Fax server
may not make a connection to the desired file server. Try forcing the
frame type to the desired one using the SET NETWARE FRAME
command from the Print / Fax server remote console or using BRAdmin.
6. If you are using DOS CAPTURE statement and losing portions of your
print job, try setting the TIMEOUT parameter in your CAPTURE
®
statement to a higher value (at least 50 seconds for Windows ).
13-13
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
AppleTalk Troubleshooting
If you cannot print from an AppleTalk for Macintosh computer and you have
checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, then check
the following:
1. Make sure that you are running Phase 2 AppleTalk and that you have
selected the correct network interface from the AppleTalk Control Panel
on the Macintosh.
2. Make sure that the AppleTalk protocol of the Print / Fax server is
enabled.
3. Verify that you have selected the correct AppleTalk zone. Because the
Print / Fax server gets its zone information from router broadcasts, it
may not be in the zone you expect, and will therefore not show up in the
Chooser. If this is the case, you may need to force the zone name using
a web browser or the SET APPLETALK ZONE command from
TELNET.
13-14
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
DLC/LLC Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing with DLC/LLC, check the following:
1. Make sure that the DLC/LLC protocol is enabled using either BRAdmin,
a web browser or TELNET.
®
2. Make sure that the MAC address of the Windows setting is as same as
the print configuration page result.
Web Browser Troubleshooting (TCP/IP)
1. If you can not connect to the Print / Fax 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 / Fax server. This will stop your PC from trying to connect to your
ISP or proxy server every time you wish to look at the printer server.
2. Make sure that you are using the proper Web Browser, we recommend
Netscape Navigator version 4.xx or later/ Microsoft Internet Explorer
version 4.xx or later.
13-15
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
Internet Fax Troubleshooting
1. If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet Fax, the mail
server will send an error message back to the FAX/MFC and the error
message will be printed. If there is an error while receiving mail, an error
message is printed (Ex. The message being sent to the MFC was not in a
TIFF-F format.) All documents transmitted to the MFC via E-mail must
be in a TIFF-F format.
2. If an error message is printed while receiving E-mail text from a PC
“ATTACHED FILE FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED” the senders mail
application may not be set for a “Plain Text” format or “Vcard” the
virtual business card feature may be set to ON.
3. If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME format,
you cannot transmit a document to the receiver. Depending on the
receiver’s server, there are some cases that the error mail will not be sent
back.
4. Messages cannot be received in an HTML format. This format is not
supported. All messages must be received in a TIFF-F Format.
5. If the size of a documents image data is huge, there is a possibility of
unsuccessful transmission if the system administrator has imposed a
limit on the maximum size of E-mails and their attachments. The
document you are sending should be separated into smaller documents
that will be accepted by the mail server. (Ex. A 42 page document of the
CCITT#1 test chart is approximately 1Mbyte in size).
6. If you do not receive E-mail, check the Auto Polling setting and Polling
frequency.
7. If you cannot retrieve mail from the mail server, check the settings for
the POP3 server and Mailbox name. Check that the POP3 password is
entered correctly. This setting is case sensitive.
8. If Relay Broadcast is not forwarding E-mail to a G3 Fax, check the
Relay Broadcast settings and Relay Domain registration. A Relay
Domain must be entered for this function to work.
9. The Relay Broadcasting and Broadcasting features cannot be used at the
same time.
10. Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum
of 48 Fax machines through conventional telephone lines. If sending to
more than 48 locations the sender must divide the transmission locations
into 48 locations or less for each relay broadcast.
11. When receiving E-mail messages from the POP server, the MFC can
receive a maximum of 32 mail messages. If there are more than 32 mail
messages in the POP server, the MFC will receive a maximum of 32
mail massages and then receive the remaining after the next polling
interval.
12. The NC-8100h Print / Fax Server requires a portion of the user memory
for operation. With the NC-8100h installed the number of Fax sheets
that can be sent or received will be reduced (by approximately 30 pages
of the brother No1 Test Chart) from the standard MFC capacity.

Reloading the Print / Fax
Server Firmware
General
The firmware on the Print / Fax server is stored in flash memory. This means that
you can upgrade the firmware by downloading the appropriate update file. To get
the latest firmware update, access the Brother Solutions web site at
http://solutions.brother.com/
The Print / Fax server supports multiple MFC models so when inserted into the
MFC the version of the NC-8100h hardware is checked against the firmware of
your machine. If the firmware for your NC-8100h has been superseded with a
later version of firmware for your model a message is displayed on the LCD.
“Please update your firmware”.
Some firmware versions that we provide will automatically factory reset your
Print / Fax server parameters. We try to avoid doing this, however, if we add a
significant new feature to our Print / Fax server, it can result in the Print / Fax
server being factory reset.
Because of this, we STRONGLY recommend that you make a note of the current
Print / Fax server configuration before you upgrade. To do this, Print out a
configuration page by referring to the Quick Setup Guide that was supplied with
the NC-8100h for details on how to print a configuration page.
There are three methods of upgrading the firmware in your Brother Print / Fax
server:
1. Use the BRAdmin application (Recommended).
2. Use the FTP protocol (Recommended if running on Macintosh or
Unix network).
3. Use another system (such as a Novell or Unix system to send the new
firmware file to the Print / Fax server).

APPENDIX
Reloading firmware using BRAdmin
The BRAdmin application can be used to easily re-program your Brother Print /
Fax server.
1. Start BRAdmin.
2. Highlight the appropriate Print / Fax server. Then press select the
Control menu and choose Load Firmware. You can select more than one
Print / Fax server by pressing CTRL+<select> or SHIFT+<select> on
each additional Print / Fax server.
There are three possible ways of sending the new software version to the Print /
Fax server. For whichever method you select, you must enter a password for the
Print / Fax server. The default password for the Print / Fax server is "access".
3. TFTP PUT from this host
Use this method if you have TCP/IP already installed on your PC. BRAdmin will
use the TFTP protocol to send the new firmware data to the Print / Fax server.
4. TFTP GET from a server
If you have a TFTP server installed in your network (many Unix systems provide
TFTP support), you may wish to use this option. The new firmware file must be
located in the TFTP BOOT directory on your TFTP server. In this case, your PC
makes the Print / Fax server read the firmware data from the assigned TFTP
server. If you do not provide the correct file name, then the upgrade will fail. You
must also ensure that the firmware file is set so that the Print / Fax server can
read the file. On Unix systems you can use the chmod command to specify file
attributes. For example, chmod filename 666 allows the filename to be accessed
by anyone. Also make sure that the TFTP service is running on your Unix server.
5. Netware GET from a server
You must have a Netware server on your network (running IPX/SPX) and you
must store the new firmware file in the SYS/Login directory of the server. In this
case, your PC makes the Print / Fax server read the firmware data from the
assigned Netware server, the Print / Fax server attaches to the Netware server and
reads the firmware itself.
NOTE:
AFTER SENDING FIRMWARE TO THE MFC, DO NOT TURN OFF
THE MFC UNTIL AFTER THE MFC HAS PERFORMED AN
AUTOMATIC RESTART.

APPENDIX
Reloading using the FTP Protocol
from a command prompt
By specifying the Print / Fax server PASSWORD AS THE USERNAME when
logging on, it becomes possible to upgrade the firmware of the Print / Fax server
or printer. The following example assumes that the Print / Fax server password is
“cambridge”
D:\>ftp
ftp> open 220.0.250.200
Connected to 220.0.250.200.
220 FTP print service:V-1.05/Use the network password for
the ID if updating.

ftp> hash

ftp: 1498053 bytes sent in 8.52Seconds 175.77Kbytes/sec.
ftp> close
226 Data Transfer OK.
ftp> quit
When you see “226 Data Transfer OK/Entering FirmWareUpdate mode.” You
can be sure that the firmware file is being transferred to the Print / Fax server. If
you do not see this message, the file you are sending to the MFC will either be
ignored or the printer will print garbage.
You must use the “bin” command to put the FTP client into Binary
communications mode. If you do not specify the bin command the upgrade
process will not function correctly.
NOTE:
AFTER SENDING FIRMWARE TO THE MFC, DO NOT TURN OFF
THE MFC UNTIL AFTER THE MFC HAS PERFORMED AN
AUTOMATIC RESTART.
