Introduction
For Wireless Users:
1
To achieve optimum results with normal every day document printing, place the Brother machine as close to
the network access point (or router) as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of
your documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as photos on glossy paper or multi-page documents with
mixed text and large graphics, you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer,
or USB for the fastest throughput speed.

2 Network printer (your machine)
„ 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. (See Network Shared Printing on page 5.)
„ 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
1
In a Network Shared environment, each computer sends data via a centrally controlled computer. This type
of computer is often called a “Server” or a “Print Server”. Its job is to control the printing of all print jobs.

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 76.
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
2
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
2
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
9
Configuring your machine for a network with an Ethernet cable connection
How the IP address is assigned to your print server:
2
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network (typically a UNIX®/Linux®, Windows® 2000/XP or
Windows Vista® network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from that server.
2
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 164, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 165 and Using RARP to configure the IP
address on page 166.
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 166.
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 up the IP address and subnet mask on page 12.
Subnet mask
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
„ Example: Computer1 can talk to Computer2
• Computer1
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
• Computer2
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 any device that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.X.
Gateway (and router)
2
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the
network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a
destination is located at an external network, the router transmits data to the external network. If your network
communicates with other networks, you may need to configure the Gateway IP address. If you do not know
the Gateway IP address then contact your Network Administrator.

Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, you need to follow the steps in the Quick Setup Guide.
We recommend that you use the Setup Wizard from the machine’s control panel Network menu. By using
this method, you can easily connect your machine to your wireless network. Please follow the instructions in
the supplied Quick Setup Guide.
Please read this chapter for more details on how to configure the wireless network settings. For information
on TCP/IP settings, see Setting up the IP address and subnet mask on page 12. Then, in Network printing
from Windows® basic TCP/IP Peer-to-Peer printing on page 131 and Network printing from a Macintosh®
on page 134, you will learn how to install the network software and drivers into the operating system running
on your computer.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal every day document printing, place the Brother machine as close
to the network access point (or 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.

Wireless network terms and concepts
3
If you want to use your machine in a wireless network you must configure the machine to match the settings
of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of the main terms and concepts of these settings,
which may be helpful when you configure your machine for a wireless network.
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
3
You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
„ SSID
Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
(Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access
point. The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a
beacon) which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can
identify the wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
„ Channels
Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14
different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the
number of channels available are restricted. For further information, see Ethernet wireless network
on page 172.
Authentication and encryption
3
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication
(how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device,
it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these
options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your
Brother wireless device supports.
Authentication methods
3
The Brother machine supports the following methods:
„ Open System
Wireless devices are allowed to access the network without any authentication.
„ Shared Key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
The Brother wireless machine uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
„ WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK
Enables a Wi-Fi Protected Access™ Pre-shared key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK), which enables the Brother
wireless machine to associate with access points using TKIP for WPA-PSK or AES for WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK (WPA-Personal).
19
3
Configuring your machine for a wireless network (Not available for MFC-5490CN and MFC-5890CN)
Encryption methods
3
Encryption is used to secure the data that is sent over the wireless network. The Brother wireless machine
supports the following encryption methods:
„ None
No encryption method is used.
3
„ WEP
By using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the data is transmitted and received with a secure key.
„ TKIP
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) provides per-packet key mixing a message integrity check and
re-keying mechanism.
„ AES
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is the Wi-Fi® authorized strong encryption standard.
Network Key
3
There are some rules for each security method:
„ Open System/Shared Key with WEP
This key is a 64-bit or 128-bit value that must be entered in an ASCII or hexadecimal format.
• 64 (40) bit ASCII:
Uses 5 text characters e.g. “WSLAN” (this is case sensitive).
• 64 (40) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data e.g. “71f2234aba”.
• 128 (104) bit ASCII:
Uses 13 text characters e.g. “Wirelesscomms” (this is case sensitive).
• 128 (104) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal data e.g. “71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa2ba”.
„ WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and TKIP or AES
Uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that is 8 or more characters in length, up to a maximum of 63 characters.

Before using your Brother product in a network environment, you need to configure the correct TCP/IP
settings.
In this chapter, you will learn how to configure the network settings using the control panel, located on the
front of the machine.
The Network menu selections of the control panel allow you to set up the Brother machine for your network
configuration. Press Menu, then press a or b to choose Network. Proceed to the menu selection you wish
to configure. (See Function table and default factory settings on page 174.)
Please note that the machine is supplied with the BRAdmin Light software and Remote Setup applications
for Windows® and Macintosh®, which also can be used to configure many aspects of the network. (See Using
the Remote Setup to change the print server settings (Not available for DCP models) on page 17 for a wired
connection or Changing the print server settings on page 15 for a wireless connection.)
TCP/IP

If you connect the machine with the Ethernet cable to your network, use the Wired LAN menu selections. If
you connect the machine to a wireless Ethernet network, use the WLAN menu selections.
This menu has 10 sections: BOOT Method, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Node Name,
WINS Config, WINS Server, DNS Server, APIPA and IPv6 (For MFC-5490CN, MFC-5890CN,
MFC-6490CW, DCP-6690CW and MFC-6890CDW).
BOOT Method
6
This selection controls how the machine obtains an IP address. The default setting is Auto.
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
machine’s control panel, BRAdmin Light utility or Remote Setup.

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, then 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 IP Address is set using the
APIPA protocol, see Using APIPA to configure the IP address on page 166. After the machine is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes
for the machine to scan the network for a server.
2
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.
3
RARP mode
The Brother print server IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) service on your host computer. For more information on
RARP, see Using RARP to configure the IP address on page 166.
4
BOOTP mode
BOOTP is an alternative to RARP that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and gateway. For more information on
BOOTP, see Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 165.
5
DHCP mode (DHCP)
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have a DHCP server in
your network (typically a UNIX®, Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista® network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from a
DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002 compliant dynamic name services.

IP Address

This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have chosen a BOOT Method of Static, enter
the IP address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). If you have chosen a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its IP
address using the DHCP 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 administrator for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.

recommend that you use the Brother installer application on the CD-ROM which we have provided with the
machine. By using this application, you can easily connect your machine to your network and install the
network software and printer driver which you need to complete the configuration of your machine for a
network. You will be guided by the on-screen instructions until you are able to use your Brother network
printer.
If you are a Windows® user and want to configure your machine without using the Brother installer
application, use the TCP/IP protocol in a Peer-to-Peer environment. Please follow the instructions in this
chapter. This chapter explains how to install the network software and the printer driver which you will need
to be able to print using your network printer.
Note
• You must configure the IP address on your machine before you proceed with this chapter. If you need to
configure the IP address, see Setting up the IP address and subnet mask on page 12 first.
• Verify the host computer and the machine are either on the same subnet, or that the router is properly
configured to pass data between the two devices.
• If you are connecting to a Network Print Queue or Share (printing only), see Installation when using a
Network Print Queue or Share (printer driver only) on page 169 for installation details.
• For MFC-5490CN, MFC-5890CN, MFC-6490CW, DCP-6690CW and MFC-6890CDW, the default
password is “access“. For other models, no password is required by default.

Internet faxing (I-Fax) allows you to send and receive fax documents using the Internet as the transport
mechanism. Documents are transmitted in E-mail messages as attached TIFF-F files. This means that
computers are also able to receive and send documents, providing that the computer has as an application
that can generate and view TIFF-F files, you can use a TIFF-F viewer application. Any documents sent via
the machine will automatically be converted into a TIFF-F format. If you wish to send and receive messages
to and from your machine, your mail application on the computer must be able to support the MIME format.

Out of Memory when trying to send E-mail documents over 1 Mbyte 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. (For your information, a 42 page document based on the
ITU-T Test Chart #1 test chart is approximately 1 Mbyte in size.)
143
11
Internet fax and Scan to E-mail (For MFC-6490CW and MFC-6890CDW)
Receiving E-mail or Internet fax
11
There are 2 ways you can receive E-mail messages:
„ POP3 receiving (manually initiated)
„ POP3 receiving at regular intervals
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 + Black Start/Mono Start or
Color Start/Colour Start button.
If your machine starts to receive E-mail print jobs, the LCD will reflect this activity. For example, you will see
Receiving on the LCD followed by “xx E-mail(s)”. If you press the Shift + Black Start/Mono Start or
Color Start/Colour 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 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
Oceanic 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
Delete POP Receive Error Mail is ON (default) then error mail is automatically deleted from the E-mail server.
Receiving an Internet fax to your computer
11
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.
11
If the computer to which you wish to send a document is not running Windows® 2000/XP or Windows Vista®
operating system, please inform the computer's owner that they must install some software that can view
TIFF-F files.
Forwarding received E-mail and fax messages
11
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 computer or Internet fax. They can also be forwarded
via standard phone lines to another machine.
The setting can be enabled through the machines front panel. The steps for configuring fax forward can be
found in Chapter 6 of the User’s Guide supplied with your machine.
Please see Chapter 6 of the User’s Guide included with the machine to check that this feature is supported.
144
Internet fax and Scan to E-mail (For MFC-6490CW and MFC-6890CDW)
Relay broadcasting
11
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 name 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.
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 5 domain names.
Relay broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum of 48 fax machines through
conventional telephone lines.

11
UKFAX@brother.co.uk
FAX@brother.com
123456789

UKFAX@brother.co.uk(fax#123456789)
In this example, your machine has an E-mail address of FAX@brother.com, you wish to send a document
from this machine to another machine 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 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.

TX Verification Mail
11
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
11
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 machine 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
11
There are three possible settings for this option On, MDN or Off.
Receive Notification “On”
11
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 message are sent back to the sending station regardless
of the request.
Error mail
11
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.”).
148

Important information on Internet fax
11
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 too large, there is a possibility of unsuccessful transmission.
„ You cannot change the font or character size of Internet mail that you have received.

Security features (For MFC-6490CW and
MFC-6890CDW)
12
Overview
12
This chapter explains the security features supported by your Brother machine and how to configure them.
You can also learn how to manage your network machine securely.
Security methods for E-mail notification
12
The Brother print server supports the following security methods for E-mail notification.
POP before SMTP (PbS)
12
The user authentication method for sending E-mail from a client. The client is given permission to use the
SMTP server by accessing the POP3 server before sending the E-mail.
SMTP-AUTH (SMTP Authentication)
12
SMTP-AUTH expands SMTP (the Internet E-mail sending protocol) to include an authentication method that
ensures the true identity of the sender is known.
APOP (Authenticated Post Office Protocol)
12
APOP expands POP3 (the Internet receiving protocol) to include an authentication method that encrypts the
password when the client receives E-mail.
12
153
Security features (For MFC-6490CW and MFC-6890CDW)
Using E-mail notification with user authentication
12
To use the E-mail notification function via secure SMTP server that requires a user authentication, you need
to use POP before SMTP or SMTP-AUTH method. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from
accessing the mail server. You can use BRAdmin Professional and Web BRAdmin to configure these
settings.
Note
You need to match the settings of POP3/SMTP authentication with one of the E-mail servers. Contact your
network administrator or your internet service provider about the configuration before using.
Managing your network machine securely using BRAdmin
Professional (for Windows®)
12
To use the BRAdmin Professional utility securely, you need to follow the points below.
„ We strongly recommend to use the latest version of the BRAdmin Professional utility or Web BRAdmin
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.
„ Disable the TELNET, FTP and TFTP protocols. Accessing the machine using these protocols is not
secure. You can configure the protocol settings from BRAdmin Professional.
„ If you are managing a mixed group of older print servers 2 and the new NC-170h or NC-180w print server
with BRAdmin Professional, we recommend using a different password in each group. This will ensure
security is maintained on the new NC-170h or NC-180w print server.

Appendix A
A
Using services
A
A service is a resource that can be accessed by computers that wish to print to the Brother print server. The
Brother print server provides the following predefined services (do a SHOW SERVICE command in the
Brother print server remote console to see a list of available services): Enter HELP at the command prompt
for a list of supported commands.
Service (Example)
Definition
BINARY_P1
TCP/IP binary, NetBIOS service
TEXT_P1
TCP/IP text service (adds carriage return after each line feed)
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx
TCP/IP binary
Where xxxxxxxxxxxx is your machine’s Ethernet address.
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
administrators)
A
For information on how to configure your machine for a network using the BRAdmin Light utility, see Setting
up the IP address and subnet mask on page 12.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
A
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from 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 Light utility.
164
A
Appendix A
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address
A
BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running
on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service; type man
bootpd or refer to your system documentation for information). BOOTP is usually started up via the
/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” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
BRN008077310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN008077310107: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 server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the machine is powered on.
A
165
Appendix A
Using RARP to configure the IP address
A
The Brother print server’s IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) facility on your host
computer. This is done by editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an
entry similar to the following:
00:80:77:31:01:07 BRN008077310107 (or BRW008077310107 for a wireless network)
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the print server and the second entry is the name of the print
server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).
If the rarp daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd,
rarpd -a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for
additional information). To verify that the rarp daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX® based system, type
the following command:
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX®-based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Brother print server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when the machine is powered on.
Using APIPA to configure the IP address
A
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 87.
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.
A
166
Appendix A
Using ARP to configure the IP address
A
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can
also use the ARP command. The ARP command is available on Windows® systems that have TCP/IP
installed as well as UNIX® systems. To use arp enter the following command at the command prompt:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
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 dash “-” character between each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
„ UNIX®/Linux® systems
Typically, UNIX® and Linux® systems require the colon “:” character between each digit of the Ethernet
address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
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 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.
167
A
Appendix A
Using the TELNET console to configure the IP address
A
You can also use the TELNET command to change the IP address.
TELNET is an effective method to change the machine’s IP address. But a valid IP address must already be
programmed into the print server.
Type TELNET ipaddress at the command prompt, where ipaddress is the IP address of the print server.
When you are connected, press the Return or Enter key to get the “#” prompt. Enter a password if you have
set it. For MFC-5490CN, MFC-5890CN, MFC-6490CW, DCP-6690CW and MFC-6890CDW, the default
password is “access“.
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to this prompt.
You will then get the Local> prompt. Type SET IP ADDRESS ipaddress, where ipaddress is the
desired IP address you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.3
You will now need to set the subnet mask by typing SET IP SUBNET subnet mask, where subnet mask
is the desired subnet mask you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for
the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default subnet masks:
255.0.0.0 for class A networks
255.255.0.0 for class B networks
255.255.255.0 for class C networks
The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this
group ranges from 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.168.1.4).
If you have a gateway (router), enter its address with the command SET IP ROUTER routeraddress,
where routeraddress is the desired IP address of the gateway you wish to assign to the print server. For
example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.168.1.4
Type SET IP METHOD STATIC to set the method of IP access configuration to static.
A
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.
