Overview
1
As well as being able to scan a document to your computer, your Brother machine is capable of scanning
directly to an FTP server. This can be done on the scanner glass or through the Automatic Document Feeder
(ADF).
When you choose Scan to FTP, you can scan a black and white or color document directly to an FTP server
on your local network, or on the internet. The details required to use Scan to FTP can be entered by using
Web Based Management to pre-configure and store the details in an FTP Profile.
Benefits to the customer
1
 If you wish to scan and send someone a copy of a file and do not wish to use Brother’s scan to E-mail
function (because the file you wish to send to them it too big for your E-mail software), you can use Scan
to FTP as an alternative method of scanning and sending a document. The only requirement is that they
can access the FTP server you will send the document to.
 You can configure up to 10 Scan to FTP profiles. Once you have configured Scan to FTP profiles using
Web Based Management, you can operate Scan to FTP from the machine's control panel without using a
computer.

Configuration for Scan to FTP using a
Web Browser
2
When you choose Scan to FTP, you can scan a black and white or color document directly to an FTP server
on your local network, or on the internet.
2
In order to scan to FTP, you will need to know the location of your FTP server, together with a username and
password. These credentials can either be entered manually or stored in profiles within the machine itself. To
create profiles on your Brother machine, you’ll need to use a computer with a web browser. Using a profile
eliminates the need to enter your credentials every time you need to scan to FTP. The details required to use
Scan to FTP can be entered by using Web Based Management to pre-configure and store the details in an
FTP Profile.
Note
We recommend to use Windows® Internet Explorer® 7.0/8.0 or Firefox® 3.6 for Windows® and Safari
4.0/5.0 for Macintosh. Please also make sure that JavaScript and Cookies are always enabled in
whichever browser you use. If a different web browser is used, make sure it is compatible with HTTP 1.0
and HTTP 1.1.

5 Choose the file name you want to use for the scanned document. You can choose from seven preset
and two user defined file names. The file name that will be used for your document will be the file
name you selected plus the last 6 digits of the flatbed/ADF scanner counter plus the file extension
(For example, Estimate_098765.pdf). You can also manually enter a file name up to 15 characters.
6 Choose the scan quality from the drop-down list. You can choose Color 100 dpi, Color 200 dpi,
Color 300 dpi, Color 600 dpi, Color Auto, Gray 100 dpi, Gray 200 dpi, Gray 300 dpi, Gray Auto,

Secure PDF, Signed PDF, JPEG, XPS or User Select for color or gray scale documents and PDF,
PDF/A, Secure PDF, Signed PDF, TIFF or User Select for B/W documents.
8 (For Touchscreen models) If you are using the scanner glass, choose A4, Letter or Legal/Folio for
Glass Scan Size.
9 If you choose color or gray in the scan quality, choose the file size for the document from the
drop-down list. You can choose Large, Medium, Small or User Select.
10 You can set Passive Mode to Off or On depending on your FTP server and network firewall
configuration. By default this setting is On.
11 You can change the port number used to access the FTP server. The default for this setting is port
21. In most cases the Passive Mode and port number settings can remain as default.
Note
• If you choose User Select in the scan quality, file type or file size, you must choose those settings from
the machine’s control panel.
• If you choose Secure PDF, the machine will ask you to enter a 4 digit password using numbers 0-9 before
it starts scanning.
• If you choose Signed PDF, you must install a certificate on your machine using Web Based Management.
Choose Signed PDF from Administrator in Web Based Management. (See Digital Certificate for Signed
PDF uu page 13).
• For information on PDF/A, Secure PDF and Signed PDF, see PDF file format uu page 24.
• To prevent duplicate files being scanned, the Brother machine will automatically use the last 6 digits from
the scanner counter along with the specified file name.

Supported Certificates
4
The Brother machine supports the following certificates.
 Self-signed certificate
This print server issues its own certificate. Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS
communication without having a certificate from a CA. (See Creating a self-signed certificate uu page 16.)
 Certificate from a CA
There are two methods for installing a certificate from a CA. If you already have a CA or if you want to use
a certificate from an external trusted CA:
• When using a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from this print server. (See Creating a Certificate
Signing Request (CSR) uu page 17.)
• When importing a certificate and a private key. (See Import and export the certificate and private key
uu page 20.)
 CA certificate
If you use a CA certificate that identifies the CA (Certificate Authority) itself and owns its private key, you
must import a CA certificate from the CA, prior to the configuration. (See Import and export a CA certificate
uu page 21.)

remotely through a web browser using its IP address.
a
b
Start your web browser.
Type “http://machine’s IP address/” into your browser's address bar (where “machine’s IP address” is the
