Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend you to follow the steps in the Quick Setup
Guide using Brother installer application on the CD-ROM which we have provided with the machine. By using
this method, you can easily connect your machine to your wireless network.
Please read this chapter for additional methods on how to configure the wireless network settings. For
information on TCP/IP settings, see How to change your machine’s network settings (IP address, Subnet
mask and Gateway) on page 3.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close
to the WLAN access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of
your documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large
graphics, you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer, or USB for the
fastest throughput speed.
• Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one connection
method can be used at a time.
• Before configuring wireless settings, you will need to know your Network name: (SSID, ESSID) and
Network Key. If you are using an enterprise wireless network you also need to know the User ID
and Password.

In today’s world there are many security threats to your network and the data that travels over it. Your Brother
machine employs some of the latest network security and encryption protocols available today. These
network features can be integrated into your overall network security plan to help protect your data and
prevent unauthorized access to the machine. This chapter explains how to configure them.
You can configure following security features:
 Sending an E-mail securely (See Sending an E-mail securely on page 33.)
 Secure Management using BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) (See Secure Management using
BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) on page 35.)
Note
We recommend to disable the FTP and TFTP protocols. Accessing the machine using these protocols is
not secure. (For how to configure the protocol settings, see How to configure the machine settings using
Web Based Management (web browser) on page 31.)

Sending an E-mail with user authentication
7
This machine supports POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH methods to send an E-mail via an E-mail server
that requires a user authentication. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from accessing the E-mail
server. You can use Web Based Management, BRAdmin Professional 3 and Web BRAdmin (not available
for HL-2135W) to configure these settings. You can use POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH methods for
E-mail Notification and E-mail reports.
E-mail server settings
You need to match the settings of SMTP authentication method with the method used by your E-mail server.
Contact your network administrator or your ISP (Internet Service Provider) about the E-mail server
configuration.
You will also need to check SMTP-AUTH of SMTP Server Authentication Method to enable the SMTP
server authentication.
33
Security features
SMTP settings
 You can change the SMTP port number using Web Based Management. This is useful if your ISP (Internet
Service Provider) implements the “Outbound Port 25 Blocking (OP25B)” service.
 By changing the SMTP port number to a specific number which your ISP is using for the SMTP server (for
example, port 587), you would then be able to send an E-mail via the SMTP server.
 If you can use both POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH, we recommend choosing SMTP-AUTH.
 If you choose POP before SMTP for the SMTP Server Authentication Method, you need to configure the
POP3 settings. You can also use the APOP method if needed.

To use the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility securely, you need to follow the
points below
7
 We strongly recommend to use the latest version of the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility or Web BRAdmin
(not available for HL-2135W) that are available as a download from http://solutions.brother.com/. If you
use an older version of BRAdmin 1 to manage your brother machines the user authentication will not be
secure.
 If you want to avoid access to your machine from older versions of BRAdmin 1, you need to disable the
access from older versions of BRAdmin 1 from Advanced Setting of SNMP on Configure Protocol page
using Web Based Management (web browser). (See How to configure the machine settings using Web
Based Management (web browser) on page 31.)
7
 If you are managing a mixed group of older print servers 2 and the new print servers with BRAdmin
Professional 3, we recommend using a different password in each group. This will ensure security is
maintained on the new print servers.
