Introduction
Types of network connections
1
1
Network connection example
1
Generally there are two types of network connections: Peer-to-Peer and Network Shared environment.
Peer-to-Peer printing using TCP/IP
1
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.
Windows
R
Windows
TCP/IP
R
Windows
R
TCP/IP
1 Router
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 described on the following page. See Network
Shared printing on page 5.
„ Each computer must use the TCP/IP Protocol.
„ The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration.
„ If you are using routers, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother
machine.
„ The Brother machine can also communicate with Macintosh® (TCP/IP compatible operating systems).
4
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.
1 Client computer
2 Also known as “Server” or “Print server”
3 TCP/IP or USB (where available)
4 Printer (your machine)
„ In a larger network, we recommend a Network Shared printing environment.
„ The “server” or the “print server” must use the TCP/IP print protocol.
„ The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration unless the machine is
connected via the USB interface at the server.
5

Introduction
Wireless network connection examples
1
1
Connected to a computer with an access point on the network (Infrastructure mode)
1
This type of network has a central access point at the heart of the network. The access point can also act as
a bridge or a gateway to a wired network. When the Brother wireless machine (your machine) is part of this
network, it receives all print jobs via an access point.
1 Access point
2 Wireless network printer (your machine)
3 Wireless capable computer communicating with the access point
4 Wired computer which is not wireless capable connected to the access point with the Ethernet
cable
Connected to a wireless capable computer without an access point on the network
(Ad-hoc mode)
1
This type of network does not have a central access point. Each wireless client communicates directly with
each other. When the Brother wireless machine (your machine) is part of this network, it receives all print jobs
directly from the computer sending the print data.

1
By using the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, the IP address can be automatically configured.
Note
To use the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, please contact your network administrator.
APIPA
1
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the control panel of the machine or the BRAdmin software)
or automatically (using a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server), the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA)
protocol will automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255.
DNS client
1
The Brother print server supports the Domain Name System (DNS) client function. This function allows the
print server to communicate with other devices by using its DNS name.
LPR/LPD

SMTP client
1
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) client is used to send E-mails via Internet or Intranet.
Port9100
1
Another commonly used printing protocol on a TCP/IP network.
7
Introduction
IPP
1
1
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP Version 1.0) allows you to print documents directly to any accessible
printer via the internet.
mDNS
1
mDNS allows the Brother print server to automatically configure itself to work in a Mac OS® X Simple Network
Configured system. (Mac OS® X 10.2.4 or greater).
TELNET
1
The Brother print server supports TELNET server for command line configuration.
SNMP
1
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network devices including computers,
routers and Brother network ready machines in a TCP/IP network.
LLMNR
1
The Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution protocol (LLMNR) resolves the names of neighboring computers,
if the network does not have a Domain Name System (DNS) server. The LLMNR Responder function works
in both the IPv4 or IPv6 environment when using a computer that has the LLMNR Sender function such as
Windows Vista®.
Web services
1
The Web Services protocol enables Windows Vista® users to install the Brother printer driver by right clicking
the machine icon from the Start / Network selection. (See Installation when using web services (For
Windows Vista® users) on page 131). The Web Services also lets you check the current status of the
machine from your computer.
Web server (HTTP)
1
The Brother print server is equipped with a built in web server that allows you to monitor its status or change
some of its configuration settings using a web browser.
Note
We recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0® (or greater) or Firefox® 1.0 (or greater) for Windows® and
Safari™ 1.0 (or greater) for Macintosh®. Please also make sure that JavaScript and Cookies are always
enabled in whichever browser you use. We recommend you upgrade to Safari™ 1.2 or greater to enable
JavaScript. If a different web browser is used, make sure it is compatible with HTTP 1.0 and HTTP 1.1.

Configuring your machine for a network
2
Overview
2
2
Before using your Brother machine in a network environment, you must install the Brother software and also
configure the appropriate TCP/IP network settings on the machine itself. In this chapter, you will learn the
basic steps required to print over the network using TCP/IP protocol.
We recommend that you use the Brother installer on the Brother CD-ROM to install the Brother software as
this will guide you through the software and network installation. Please follow the instructions in the supplied
Quick Setup Guide.
Note
If you do not wish to, or are unable to use the Brother 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 74.
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
2
To use the machine in a networked TCP/IP environment, you need to configure the IP address and subnet
mask. The IP address you assign to the print server must be on the same logical network as your host
computers. If it is not, you must properly configure the subnet mask and the gateway address.
IP address
2
An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each computer connected to a network. An IP address
consists of four numbers separated by dots. Each number is between 0 and 255.
„ Example: In a small network, you would normally change the final number.
• 192.168.1.1
• 192.168.1.2
• 192.168.1.3
10
Configuring your machine for a network
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 or Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista® or Windows Server® 2003 network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
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 125, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 126 and Using RARP to configure
the IP address on page 127.
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 127.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. However, you can
easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network. For information
on how to change the IP address, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 13.
Subnet mask
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
„ Example: Computer 1 can talk to Computer 2
• Computer 1
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
• Computer 2
IP Address: 192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Note
0 denotes that there is no limit to communication at this part of the address.
In the above example, we can communicate with anything that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.x.
Gateway (and router)
2
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the
network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a
destination is located on an external network, the router transmits data to the external network. If your network
communicates with other networks, you may need to configure the Gateway IP address. If you do not know
the Gateway IP address then contact your Network Administrator.

Configuring your machine for a wireless
network

Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend you to follow the steps in the Quick Setup
Guide using the Setup Wizard from the machine’s control panel LAN menu. 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 Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 13 and Using the
BRAdmin Light utility to configure your machine as a network printer on page 13. Then, in Network printing
from Windows®: basic TCP/IP Peer-to-Peer printing on page 94 or Network printing from Macintosh®
on page 103, 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 MFC-7840W can be used in a both wired and wireless network, only one connection
method can be used at a time.

Configuring your machine for a wireless network
Wireless network terms and concepts
3
When you configure your machine for a wireless network, you must ensure that your wireless network
machine is configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of
the main terms and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure your machine for a
wireless network.
3
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 134.
Authentication and encryption
3
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication
(how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device,
it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these
options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your
Brother wireless device supports.
Authentication methods
3
The Brother printer supports the following methods:
„ Open system
Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
„ Shared key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
The Brother wireless machine uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
20
Configuring your machine for a wireless network
„ 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).
„ LEAP
Cisco®LEAP (Light Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Cisco Systems, Inc. which
uses user ID and password for authentication.
Encryption methods
3
3
Encryption is used to secure the data that is sent over the wireless network. The Brother wireless machine
supports the following encryption methods:
„ None
No encryption method is used.
„ WEP
By using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the data is transmitted and received with a secure key.
„ TKIP
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) provides per-packet key mixing a message integrity check and
rekeying mechanism.
„ AES
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is the Wi-Fi® authorized strong encryption standard.
„ CKIP
The original Key Integrity Protocol for LEAP by Cisco Systems, Inc.
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”
21

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 LAN 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 LAN. Proceed to the menu selection you wish to
configure. See Function table and default factory settings on page 136.
Please note that the machine is supplied with the BRAdmin Light utility and Remote Setup applications for
Windows® and Macintosh®, which also can be used to configure many aspects of the network. See Changing
the print server settings on page 16.
TCP/IP

If you connect the machine with an Ethernet cable to your network, use the Wired menu selections. If you
connect the machine to a wireless Ethernet network, use the WLAN menu selections.
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
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, Remote Setup or Web Based Management (web browser).

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 127. 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 127.
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 126.
5
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 will automatically obtain its IP address from a
DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002 compliant dynamic name services.
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may be the router.

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.

Network printing from Windows®:
basic TCP/IP Peer-to-Peer printing
8
Overview
8
To connect your printer to your network, you need to follow the steps in the Quick Setup Guide. We
recommend that you use the Brother installer application on the CD-ROM which we have provided with the
printer. By using this application, you can easily connect your printer to your network and install the network
software and printer driver which you need to complete the configuration of your printer 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 the IP address and subnet mask on page 13 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.
8
• 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 132 for installation details.
• The default password for Brother print server is “access”.

Security features
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 printer 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
111
Security features
Using E-mail notification with user authentication
12
To use the E-mail notification function via secure SMTP server that requires a user authentication, you need
to use POP before SMTP or SMTP-AUTH method. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from
accessing the mail server. You can use Web Based Management (web browser), BRAdmin Professional and
Web BRAdmin to configure these settings.
Note
You need to match the settings of POP3/SMTP authentication with one of the E-mail servers. Contact your
network administrator or your internet service provider about the configuration before using.
How to configure the POP3/SMTP settings using Web Based Management (web browser).
a
b
Start your web browser.
Type “http://printer’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://BRN123456765432/ (if the printer’s node name is BRN123456765432.)
Note
If you have edited the hosts file on your computer or are using a Domain Name System, you can also enter
the DNS name of the print server. As the print server supports TCP/IP and NetBIOS 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 87. The NetBIOS name assigned is the first 15 characters of the node name and by default it will
appear as “BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx” for a wired network or “BRWxxxxxxxxxxxx” for a wireless network.
c
d
12
Click Network Configuration.
Enter a user name and a password.
Note
The login name for the Administrator is “admin” (case sensitive) and the default password is “access”.
e
f
Click Configure Protocol.
Make sure that the POP3/SMTP setting is Enable, and then click Advanced Setting of POP3/SMTP.
112
Security features
g
You can configure the POP3/SMTP settings on this page.
Note
• You can also 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, and you are not
using the ISP’s SMTP server. By changing the SMTP port number to a specific number which your SMTP
server decide (for example, port 587), you can still send an E-mail via the SMTP server you currently use.
You will also need to check SMTP-AUTH of SMTP Server Authentication Method to enable the SMTP
server authentication.
• 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.
• For more information, see the Help text in the Web Based Management.
• You can also confirm whether the E-mail settings are correct after configuration by sending a test E-mail.
h
i
After configuring, click Submit. The Test E-mail Send Configuration dialog appears.
Follow the instructions on-screen if you want to test with the current settings.
113
12
Security features
Managing your network printer 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 devices the user authentication will not be secure.
„ If you want to prevent access to your printer from older versions of BRAdmin 1, you need to disable access
from older versions of BRAdmin 1 from the Advanced Setting of SNMP on Configure Protocol page by
using Web Based Management (web browser). See How to configure the print server settings using Web
Based Management (web browser) on page 109.
„ Disable the TELNET, 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 print server settings using
Web Based Management (web browser) on page 109.
„ If you are managing a mixed group of older print servers 2 and the new NC-6600h or NC-7400w print
server with BRAdmin Professional, we recommend using a different password in each group. This will
ensure security is maintained on the new NC-6600h or NC-7400w print server.

troubleshooting
13
I want to use a different Port number other than 631.
13
If you are using Port 631 for IPP printing, you may find that your firewall may not let the print data through. If
this is the case, use a different port number (port 80), or configure your Firewall to allow Port 631 data
through.
To send a print job using IPP to a printer using Port 80 (the standard HTTP port) enter the following when
configuring your Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista® and Windows Server® 2003 system.
http://ipaddress/ipp

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, Windows Vista® and Windows Server® 2003 to use Port 80 to
communicate with the Brother print server.

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
TEXT_P1
TCP/IP text service (adds carriage return after each line feed)
PCL_P1
PCL® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PCL® mode)
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx
TCP/IP binary
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx_AT
PostScript® service for Macintosh®
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PostScript® mode)
Where “xxxxxxxxxxxx” is your machine’s Ethernet address (MAC address) for the wired network.
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
the IP address and subnet mask on page 13.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
A
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT
Method to static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying
to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT Method, use the machine’s
control panel LAN menu, BRAdmin applications, Remote Setup or Web Based Management (web
browser).
125
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 (MAC 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
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN008077310107: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.
A
126
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: (“BRN” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
00:80:77:31:01:07
BRN008077310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the print server and the second entry is the
name of the print server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).
If the RARP daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd,
rarpd -a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for
additional information). To verify that the RARP daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX® based system, type
the following command:
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX®-based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Brother print server will get the IP address from the RARP daemon when the printer is powered on.
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 80.
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
127
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
ping ipaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the print server and ipaddress is the
IP address of the print server. For example:
„ Windows® systems
Windows® systems require the dash “-” character between each digit of the Ethernet address (MAC
address).
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
ping 192.168.1.2
„ UNIX®/Linux systems
Typically, UNIX® and Linux systems require the colon “:” character between each digit of the Ethernet
address (MAC address).
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
ping 192.168.1.2
Note
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the print server and
operating system) to use the arp -s command.
If there is a router, you may use BOOTP or other methods described in this chapter to enter the IP address.
If your administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP or RARP
your Brother print server can receive an IP address from any one of these IP address allocation systems.
In which case, you will not need to use the ARP command. The ARP command only works once. For
security reasons, once you have successfully configured the IP address of a Brother print server using the
ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The print server will
ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use a Web Based Management
(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).
128
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 <command line> at the command prompt of the system prompt, where <command line>
is the IP address of the print server. When you are connected, push the Return or Enter key to get the “#”
prompt. Enter the password “access” (the password will not appear on the screen).
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to this prompt.
You will then get the Local> prompt. Type SET IP ADDRESS ipaddress, where ipaddress is the
desired IP address you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.3
You will now need to set the subnet mask by typing SET IP SUBNET subnet mask, where subnet mask
is the desired subnet mask you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for
the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default subnet masks:
255.0.0.0 for class A networks
255.255.0.0 for class B networks
255.255.255.0 for class C networks
The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this
group ranges from 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.168.1.4).
If you have a gateway (router), enter its address with the command SET IP ROUTER routeraddress,
where routeraddress is the desired IP address of the gateway you wish to assign to the print server. For
example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.168.1.4
Type SET IP METHOD STATIC to set the method of IP access configuration to static.
To verify that you have entered the IP information correctly, type SHOW IP.
A
Type EXIT or Ctrl-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type “D”) to end the remote console session.
