To use the Brother machine through a network, you need to configure the print server, and set up the
computers you use.
In this chapter, you will learn the basic concept of the network function, connection and protocols. In Chapter
2, you will read information on network configuration. In Chapter 3, you will learn how to configure the print
server using the control panel. Chapter 4 through Chapter 6 describe how to configure your print server with
your operating system:

Introduction
Network function features
Brother machine has the following basic network functions.
1
Network printing
The print server provides printing services for Windows® 98/98SE/Me/NT®/2000/XP/Windows Vista®
supporting the TCP/IP protocols and Macintosh® supporting TCP/IP (Mac OS® 9.1-9.2 / Mac OS® X 10.2.4
or greater for a wired network).
Network scanning
You can scan documents over the network to your computer or to a central server (See Chapter 4 for
Windows® and Chapter 10 for Macintosh® of the Software User’s Guide on the CD-ROM).
Network PC-FAX (Not available for DCP-8065DN)
You can directly send and receive a PC file as a PC-FAX on your network (See Chapter 6 for Windows® and
Chapter 7 for Macintosh® of the Software User’s Guide on the CD-ROM for complete description).
Fax to server (MFC-8860DN only)
The Fax to Server feature allows the machine to scan documents and send them via a separate fax server.
Unlike Internet Fax or I-Fax, the Fax to Server feature utilizes a server to send the documents as fax data
over phone or T-1 lines.
Management utility
BRAdmin Light
BRAdmin Light is a utility for initial setup of the Brother network connected devices. This utility can search for
Brother products on your network, view the status and configure basic network settings, such as IP address.
The BRAdmin Light utility is available for Windows Vista® and Mac OS® X 10.2.4 or greater.
BRAdmin Professional
The BRAdmin Professional is a utility for more advanced management of network connected Brother devices.
This utility can search for Brother products on your network, view the status and configure the network
settings from a computer running system.
The BRAdmin professional utility is available for Windows® 98/98SE/Me, Windows NT® 4.0 and Windows®
2000/XP.
2
Introduction
Remote Setup (Not available for DCP-8065DN)
The Remote Setup software allows you to configure network settings from a Windows® or Macintosh® (Mac
OS® X 10.2.4 or greater). (See Chapter 5 for Windows® and Chapter 11 for Macintosh® of the Software User’s
Guide on the CD-ROM).
Types of Network Connections
Generally speaking, there are two types of networks: A Peer-to-Peer network and a shared Network.
Network Connection Example
Peer-to-Peer printing using TCP/IP
In a Peer-to-Peer environment, each computer directly sends and receives data to each device. There is no
central server controlling File access or Printer sharing.

■ 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 machine needs an appropriate IP address configuration.
■ If you are using a router, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother
machine.

Introduction
Network Shared Printing
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.

Introduction
Protocols
TCP/IP Protocols
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) protocols.
TCP/IP is the most popular set of protocols and 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.
DHCP/BOOTP/RARP
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
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the MFL-Pro Suite Installation or 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
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.
LPR/LPD
Commonly used printing protocol on a TCP/IP network.
Port 9100
Another commonly used printing protocol on a TCP/IP network.
5
Introduction
SMTP client
The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) allows the Brother machine to send and receive e-mails.
IPP
1
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP Version 1.0) allows you to print documents via the internet.
mDNS
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
The Brother print server supports TELNET server for command line configuration.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network devices including computers,
routers and Brother network ready machines.
Web server (HTTP)
The Brother print server is equipped with a built in web server that allows you to monitor its status or change
its configuration settings.
Note
We recommend Internet Explorer 6.0 (or higher) or Netscape Navigator 7.1 (or higher). If a different web
browser is used, make sure it is compatible with HTTP 1.0 and HTTP 1.1.
FTP
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) allows the Brother machine to scan black and white or color documents directly
to an FTP server located locally on your network or on the internet.
LDAP
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) allows the Brother machine to search for information such as
fax numbers and E-mail addresses from an LDAP server.
IPv6
This machine is compatible with the IPv6, the next generation internet protocol. For more information on the
IPv6 protocol, visit http://solutions.brother.com.

Configuring your network printer
Overview
Before you can use your Brother machine on your network, you need to install the Brother software and also
configure the appropriate TCP/IP network settings on the machine itself. To do this, we recommend that you
use the automatic installer on the Brother CD-ROM as this will guide you through the software and network
installation.
If you do not wish to use the automatic installer, or you do not understand some of the terms used by the
automatic installer, 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 machine’s control panel to change network settings. For more information, see Control Panel
Setup on page 13.
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
To use the machine in a networked TCP/IP environment, you need to configure its 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.
IP address
An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each device 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 number.
192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network (typically a UNIX®/Linux, Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista® network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from the DHCP server.
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
88, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 89 and Using RARP to configure the IP address on
page 89.
7
2
Configuring your network printer
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 90.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the default 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 9.
2
Subnet mask
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
Example: PC1 can talk to PC2
PC1 IP Address:192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
PC2 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)
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.

TCP/IP
This menu has ten sections: Boot Method, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Node Name, WINS
Config, WINS Server, DNS Server, APIPA and IPv6.
BOOT Method
1
(For MFC-8460N, MFC-8660DN, MFC-8670DN and MFC-8860DN) Press Menu, 6, 1, 1.
(For DCP-8065DN) Press Menu, 4, 1, 1.
2
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Auto, Static, RARP, BOOTP or DHCP.
3
Press OK.
4
Press Stop/Exit.
Auto mode
In this mode, the machine 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 machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will
be used. If no DHCP server is available, the machine will scan for a BOOTP server. If a BOOTP server is
available, and it is configured correctly, the machine will take its IP address from the BOOTP server. If a
BOOTP server is not available, the machine will scan for a RARP server. If a RARP server also does not
answer, the machine will use an APIPA address, see Using APIPA to configure the IP address on page 90.
This whole process can take 2 to 3 minutes so we recommend printing a Network Configuration List to confirm
the network settings are set correctly.
Static mode
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
13
Control Panel Setup
RARP mode
Brother print 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
3
BRN_310107
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 it is powered on.
BOOTP mode
BOOTP is an alternative to RARP. However, unlike RARP, it is able to configure 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
Note
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 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:
14
Control Panel Setup
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.
3
DHCP mode
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® network) the print server automatically obtains its IP address from 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 to be configured using 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. To change the BOOT METHOD, use the control panel, Web browser or by using the BRAdmin
application.
IP Address
This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If the BOOT Method is set to Static, enter the IP
address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network manager for the IP address to use).
If you have selected a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its IP address using
the DHCP, RARP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your machine will probably be incompatible
with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your network
manager for the correct IP address settings.

Control Panel Setup
Fax to Server (MFC-8860DN only)
The Fax to Server feature allows the machine to scan a document and send it over the network to a separate
fax server. The document will then be sent from the server as fax data to the destination fax number over
standard phone lines. When the Fax to Server feature is set to ON all automatic fax transmissions from the
machine will be sent to the fax server for fax transmission. You can continue to send a fax directly from the
machine using the manual fax feature (For more information, see sending a fax manually in the User’s Guide).
To send a document to the fax server the correct syntax for that server must be used. The destination fax
number must be sent with a prefix and a suffix that match the parameters used by the fax server. In most
cases the syntax for the prefix is “fax=” and the syntax for the suffix would be the domain name of the fax
server E-mail gateway. The suffix must also include the “@” symbol at the beginning of the suffix. The prefix
and the suffix information must be stored in the machine before you can use the fax to server function.
Destination fax numbers can be saved in the One-Touch or Speed Dial locations or entered using the dial
pad (up to 20 digit numbers). For example if you wanted to send a document to a destination fax number of
123-555-0001 the following syntax would be used.

Internet printing for Windows®
Overview
Brother's Brother Internet Print (BIP) software, for Windows® 98/Me and Windows NT® 4.0, allows a PC user
at one location to send a print job to a Brother machine at a remote location via the Internet. For example, a
user on a PC in New York could print a document directly from their Microsoft Excel application program to
a printer in Paris.
Windows® 2000/XP users can also use this BIP software, but are recommended to use the IPP protocol
support that is part of the Windows® 2000/XP operating systems. Skip to the “Windows® 2000 IPP Printing”
section of this document.
Note
Brother Internet Print software is not supported in Windows Vista®. Use the IPP protocol support that is part
of the Windows Vista® operating systems.
Quick Tips
1
Windows® 2000/XP and Windows Vista® users can print using TCP/IP using the standard Network
Printing software and IPP protocol software built into any Windows® 2000/XP and Windows Vista®
installation.
2
Windows® 98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP protocol via a Windows® 2000 computer,
provided that the Microsoft Internet Print Services software is installed on the client PC, Internet
Information Server (IIS) is installed and running on the server and that the client PC is using version 4
or later of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Brother Internet Print General Information
The BIP software is installed using a standard Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 Installation
Wizard. It creates a virtual port on the Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP and Windows 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® 98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 Print Manager to create a printer that uses this port
along with a standard Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0-compatible printer. Any Windows®
98/Me/2000/XP and Windows 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 server at the remote location. 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.
35
5
Internet printing for Windows®
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 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 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 E-mail server. It then decodes the attachment and prints it out on the printer.
Note
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.
Brother Internet Print: Configuring the Brother Print Server
The print server can be configured using the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or by
using a web browser.
Print Server Configuration Checklist
Note
Before configuring the print server to receive BIP jobs, be sure that the E-mail 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 server (generally, the mail account name will be the first part of the
Email address; for example, if you assign the E-mail address emailprinter@xyz.com, then the mail
account name would be emailprinter).
2
Make sure that the print 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 E-mail notification with user authentication
To use the E-mail notification function via a secure SMTP server that requires 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 or
Web BRAdmin to configure these settings.
Note
• If the SMTP Server Authentication Method selection menu does not appear on your Web Based
Management web page, you need to download the latest firmware from http://solutions.brother.com/.
• To use the E-mail notification function with BRAdmin Professional or Web BRAdmin, please download
the latest version of firmware from http://solutions.brother.com/.
• 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).
1
Start your web browser.
2
Type “http://printer’s IP address/” into your browser (where “printer’s IP address” is the printer’s IP
address or the node name.).
■ For example:
http://192.168.1.2/ (if the printer’s IP address is 192.168.1.2.)
http://BRN123456/ (if the printer’s node name is BRN123456.)
Note
If you have edited the hosts file on your computer or are using Domain Name System, you can also enter the
DNS name of the print server. As the print server supports TCP/IP and NetBIOS names, you can also enter
the NetBIOS name of the print server. The NetBIOS name can be seen in the Network Configuration List. To
learn how to print the Network Configuration List, see Printing the Network Configuration List on page 31. The
NetBIOS name assigned is the first 15 characters of the node name and by default it will appear as
“BRN_xxxxxx” where “xxxxxx” is the last six digits of the Ethernet address.

you specify more than 22 characters, the LCD panel will scroll the name to the left character by character.
You can enter up to 60 characters.
Press Start to send the document.
After the document is scanned, it is transmitted to the recipient Internet Fax machine automatically via your
SMTP server. You can cancel the send operation by pressing the Stop/Exit button during scanning. After the
transmission is finished, the machine will return to standby mode.
Some E-mail servers do not allow you to send large E-mail documents (the System Administrator will often
place a limit on the maximum E-mail size). With this function enabled, the machine will display Out of
Memory when trying to send E-mail documents over 1Mbyte in size. The document will not be sent and an
error report will be printed. The document you are sending should be separated into smaller documents that
will be accepted by the mail server. You can enable this feature through the Web Management utility or the
LAN function mode.
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 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 machine to poll the E-mail server at 10 minute intervals)
or you can manually poll the server by pressing the Shift + Start buttons.
If your machine 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 E-mail(S)”. If you press the Shift + Start buttons to
manually poll the E-mail server for E-mail print jobs and there are no mail documents waiting to be printed,
the machine 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 machine's memory.
This data will be printed automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine. (For European, Asian and
Oceanian machines, 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

Receiving an Internet Fax to your computer
9
When a computer receives an Internet Fax document, the document is attached to a mail message that
informs the computer that it has received a document from an Internet Fax. This is notified in the Subject field
of the received mail message.
If the computer to which you wish to send a document is not running Windows®
98/98SE/Me/2000/XP/Windows NT® 4.0 or Windows Vista® operating system, please inform the PC's owner
that they must install some software that can view TIFF-F files.
You can use “Microsoft® Imaging” that is supplied with Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP/Windows NT® 4.0 or
Windows Vista®.
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 machine.
The setting can be enabled using the Web browsers or through the machine front panel. The steps for
configuring Fax Forward can be found in the User’s Guide supplied with your machine.
Please see the User’s Guide included with the machine to check that this feature is supported.
Using E-mail notification with user authentication
To use the E-mail notification function via a secure SMTP server that requires user authentication, you need
to use POP before SMTP or SMTP-AUTH methods. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from
accessing the mail server.
For more information, see Using E-mail notification with user authentication on page 55.
Relay Broadcasting
This function allows the Brother machine 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 machine as a relay broadcast device, you must specify the domain name that you trust
at the machine, in other words, the portion of the domain after the ‘@’ sign.
A trusted domain refers to the E-mail address. For example, if the other party’s address is bob@brother.com,
then we identify the domain as brother.com. If the E-mail address is jack@brother.co.uk, then we identify the
domain as brother.co.uk.
62
Internet Fax (MFC-8860DN only)
Use care in selecting a trusted domain since any user on a trusted domain will be able to send a Relay
Broadcast. You can register up to 10 domain names.
Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum of 48 fax machines through
conventional telephone lines.

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 machine in the @brother.com domain.
After the trusted domain is set you can send the document from your machine [I.E. FAX@brother.com] by
entering the E-mail address of the machine [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

You can also send E-mail from your computer and have it relayed to a conventional FAX machine. The
method of entering the phone number of the conventional 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.
Enter the address of the relay machine and phone number of the FAX in the “TO” box using the same method
used when sending from an machine.

TX Verification Mail
Transmission Verification Mail supports two separate functions. Verification Mail for sending allows you
request notification from the receiving station that the Internet 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 Internet Fax or E-mail.
To use this feature you must set the Notification option within the Setup Mail RX and Setup Mail
TX options.
64
Internet Fax (MFC-8860DN only)
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 Internet 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 machine or user reads or prints the received Internet 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 or 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 : Received From <mail address>
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 sent 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 machine 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 machine was not in a TIFF-F format.”).

Internet Fax (MFC-8860DN only)
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.

Brother Internet Fax Printing Software
(MFC-8860DN only)
Overview
10
Depending on your network configuration and application requirements for sending faxes via a network, you
can choose between Brother Network PC FAX Software or Brother Internet Fax Printing Software. With either
software, viewable document such as web pages, word documents, PDF documents can be sent from the
users desktop to any standard Facsimile machines, Internet fax machines and E-mail addresses.
Brother Internet Fax Printing Software (BFP) is a Windows® 98/98SE/Me, Windows NT® 4.0 and Windows®
2000/XP software utility that gives network PC Fax and Internet Fax functionality from the desktop to users
on your network or over the Internet.
BFP utilizes SMTP as the transport for sending documents from your PC. This allows any PC supported by
a SMTP mail server to send an Internet FAX even if that PC does not have direct access to the networked
machine.
Brother Network PC Fax Software utilizes LPR as the transport for sending documents from your PC to the
networked machine for transmission. This requires that the sending PC has access to the network that the
sending machine is connected.
Note
Brother Internet Fax Printing Software is not supported in Windows® XP Professional x64 Edition and
Windows Vista®.
67
Installing Brother Internet Fax Printing Driver
Insert the CD-ROM supplied with your Brother machine into your CD-ROM Drive. The installer screen will
automatically start.
10
Note
If the installer screen does not appear automatically, select Start/Run and type X:/setup.exe.
(X:/ should be the drive letter of your CD-ROM drive on your PC)
1
Select Install Optional Applications.
2
Select Brother Internet Fax Printing (BFP) Driver.
3
Click Install.
Next you will be presented with the licensing agreement, please carefully read the agreement and make the
necessary choice.
During the installation you are
presented with the following screen,
select the default unless you have
previously installed this software. If this
is the case use a port number that has
not been previously configured.
Example BFP2
You also need to enter certain
information into the printer driver dialog
screen.
It is very important that you enter your
own E-mail address. You also need to
configure the SMTP mail server IP
address or Node Name.
When Installing BFP on Windows®
2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0
operating systems we recommend
that you add a “:” to the end of the
port name.
Here you can enter the default E-mail
address of the print server or you can
leave it blank.
* If an address is specified here this
will always be used as default
This can be the Node
Name or IP address of
the E-mail server
Note
If in any doubt contact your Network Administrator for assistance.
68
Changing the BFP Port Settings
If you have more than one networked machine with the print server you may want to change the settings of
the BFP software to use an alternative machine as the network fax print server.
To alter BFP settings, select Start/Printers and Faxes to
open the Printers dialogue box. Highlight Brother Internet
Fax and right click the mouse. From the list presented
select Properties.
You are now presented with the screen below, which allows
you to configure the BFP settings. To change the details of
the print server, select the Ports tab.
69
10
The following screen shows the current configuration to alter this
configuration, press the Configure Port... key.
10
From the Configure Port... dialogue box you can change the settings.
70
Relay Broadcast Function
Before you can successfully use the machine as a network fax solution you need to switch the feature Relay
Broadcasting ON at the machine. In addition you also need to set a Trusted Domain at the machine.
10
The easiest way to achieve this is to logon to the machine using Web Based Management. Open you favorite
web browser and enter the IP address of the network machine. Enter the password of the print server to
access the configuration settings. Then browse to Internet Settings and Relay Function. For more
information, see Web Based Management on page 53.
Note
If you do not know the password contact you Network Administrator.
In order for the machine to receive data from the desktop and then send this information (network fax) to other
fax machines the Relay Broadcast Function must be switched “ON”. Also you must tell the networked
machine which networks can relay faxes through your machine. This is known as setting the Trusted
Domain. For instance, if a network machine has an E-mail address of fax@brother.com and users of this
machine also have E-mail addresses with the same domain name then the machine must be told to allow
these users to send network faxes through the machine. This is known as the Relay Function and Trusted
Domains. So we set the trusted domain as brother.com
Note
Trusted Domains provide security for your machine. In that only users from a particular domain can send
faxes through your network connected machine.

Troubleshooting
Network print software installation problems
The Brother print server is not found during setup of the network print software installation
or from the printer driver of the Brother machine in Windows®.
The Brother print server is not found using the Simple Network Configuration capabilities of
Mac OS® X.
Make sure you have completed the IP address setting of the Brother print server according to Chapter 2 or
Chapter 3 of this User’s Guide before installing the network print software or printer driver. Check the
following:
1
Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.
2
Check to see if there is any LED activity. Brother print servers have two LEDs on the back panel of the
machine. The upper green LED shows Link/Activity (Received/Transmit) status. The lower orange LED
shows Speed status.
• No light: If the upper LED is off, then the print server is not connected to the network.
• The upper LED is green: The Link/Activity LED will be green if the print server is connected to a
Ethernet network.
• The lower LED is orange: The Speed LED will be orange if the print server is connected to a 100
BASE TX Fast Ethernet network.
• The lower LED is off: The Speed LED will be off if the print server is connected to a 10BASE T
Ethernet network.
3
Print the Network Configuration List and check if the settings such as IP address settings are correct for
your network. The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP address. Verify that the IP
address is correctly loaded into the print server. And make sure that no other nodes on the network have
this IP address. For information on how to print the Network Configuration List, see Printing the Network
Configuration List on page 31.
4
Verify that the print server is on your network as follows:
For Windows®
Try pinging the print server from the host operating system command prompt with the command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the print server IP address (note that in some instances it can take up to two
minutes for the print server to load its IP address after setting the IP address).

Troubleshooting
Protocol-specific troubleshooting
Windows® 2000/XP and Windows Vista® IPP troubleshooting
11
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/XP and Windows Vista® system.
http://ipaddress/ipp
The “Go to printer’s Web site” option in Windows® XP and Windows Vista® is not working
The “Get More Info” option in Windows® 2000 and Windows Server® 2003 is not working
If you are using a URL of:
http://ipaddress:631 or http://ipaddress:631/ipp,
the Get More Info option in Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista® and Windows Server® 2003 will not
function. If you wish to use the Get More Info option, use the following URL:
http://ipaddress
This will then force Windows® 2000/XP and Windows Vista® to use Port 80 to communicate with the Brother
print server.
Web browser troubleshooting (TCP/IP)
1
If you can not 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 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 7.1
or later/ Microsoft Internet Explorer® version 6.0 or later.
LDAP troubleshooting
If you are having trouble connecting to a Windows® LDAP server, please contact your Network Administrator
and check the LDAP Security Options.

Appendix A
Using services
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)
PCL_P1
PCL® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PCL® mode)
BRN_xxxxxx_P1
TCP/IP binary
BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT
PostScript service for Macintosh
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PostScript mode)
Where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for example, BRN_310107_P1).
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
Administrators)
For information on how to configure your network printer using the BRAdmin Professional utility or a web
browser, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 9.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
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 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 BRAdmin
Professional utility.

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”.
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:
BRN_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN_310107: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
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
BRN_310107
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).

Appendix A
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
A
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.
Using APIPA to configure the IP address
The Brother print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, DHCP
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
control panel of the machine. For more information, see APIPA on page 18.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the default 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
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
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
Windows® systems require the hash "-" character between each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
90
Appendix A
UNIX®/Linux systems
Typically, UNIX® and Linux systems require the colon ":" character between each digit of the Ethernet
address.
A
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
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 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).
To configure the print server and to verify the connection, enter the following command ping ipaddress
where ipaddress is the IP address of the print server. For example, ping 192.189.207.2.
Using the TELNET console to configure the IP address
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 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 manager 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 manager for the
subnet mask to use). For example:
91
Appendix A
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
A
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 223 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 Ctrl-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type "D") to end the remote console session.
Using the Brother Web BRAdmin server software for IIS* to configure the IP
address
The Web BRAdmin server software is designed to manage all LAN/WAN Brother network connected devices.
By installing the Web BRAdmin server software on a computer running IIS*, Administrators with a web
browser can connect to the Web BRAdmin server, which then communicates with the device itself. Unlike the
BRAdmin Professional utility - which is designed for Windows® systems only - the Web BRAdmin server
software can be accessed from any client computer with a web browser that supports Java.
Please note this software is not included on the CD-ROM that was supplied with your Brother product.
Please visit http://solutions.brother.com/webbradmin to learn more about this software and to download it.
IIS* = Internet Information Server 4.0, 5.0 or 5.1
