Overview
1
The LDAP protocol allows you to search for information such as fax numbers and E-mail addresses from your
server. When you use the Fax, I-Fax or Scan to E-mail server features, you can use the LDAP search to find
fax numbers or E-mail addresses.
Every E-mail program has a personal address book, but how do you look up an address for someone who's
never sent you an E-mail? How can an organization keep one centralized up-to-date phone book that
everybody has access to? The solution is to have LDAP. LDAP, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is an
Internet protocol that E-mail and other programs use to look up information from a directory server on your
network. So, instead of having to write in the recipients E-mail address or have to find it from another source,
you can search for it using LDAP direct from the control panel of the multifunction machine.
Benefits to the customer
1
 It simplifies the process of sending a fax or scanning a document to E-mail through its effective search
facility.
 It can save time, particularly if the recipients E-mail address if unknown to the sender.

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.

Start your web browser.
Type “http://machine’s IP address/” into your browser's address bar (where “machine’s IP address” is the
IP address of the machine or the print server name).

1 This is the location of your LDAP server.
2 Change the port if necessary. (389 is the typical port number of LDAP).
If you want to connect to the Global Catalog, enter the port number 3268.
3 Enter Search Root. This is the place to start a search. For example; if the domain name of the Active
Directory server is set to “local.example.com”, the Search Root could be such as “cn=Users, dc=local,
dc=example, dc=com”.
If your server supports LDAPv3, you can automatically obtain the Search Root by pressing
Fetch DNs.
4 Select Simple method in the Authentication section, and specify Username 1 and Password 1. In
the case of connecting to the Active Directory server, enter the DN (Distinguished Name) format. (e.g.
“cn=username, cn=Users, dc=local, dc=example, dc=com ”)
5 This is how many seconds the machine will wait for a response from the LDAP server.
6 Enter the attribute type for name, E-mail address and fax number as used on the LDAP server.

This selection will only be available depending on the authentication method used.

After you have configured the LDAP settings, click Submit. Make sure that the Status is OK on the Test
Result page.
Note
• The LDAP function of this machine supports LDAPv3.
2
• You need to use Kerberos Authentication or Simple Authentication to communicate with your LDAP
server.
If the LDAP server supports Kerberos Authentication, we recommend to choose Kerberos for the
Authentication setting. It provides strong authentication between the LDAP server and your machine.
You must configure the protocol (network time server), or you must set the date, time and time zone
correctly on the control panel for Kerberos Authentication. The time must match the time on the server
used for the Kerberos Authentication. (For information about setting, see Synchronize with SNTP server
uu page 8.)
• SSL/TLS is not supported.
• For the details of each item, see the Help Text in the Web Based Management.

If you want to send a test E-mail, click Send Test E-mail.
If you do not want to test the connectivity, uncheck both test E-mail check boxes and then click Submit.

Synchronize with SNTP server
2
If the LDAP server supports Kerberos Authentication, and if you choose Kerberos for the Authentication, you
must configure the SNTP protocol (network time server), or you must set the date, time and time zone
correctly on the control panel for Kerberos Authentication. The time must match the time on the server used
for the Kerberos Authentication.
SNTP is the protocol used to synchronize the time used by the machine for Authentication with the SNTP
time server (this time is not the time displayed on the LCD of the machine). You can synchronize the time
used by the machine on a regular basis with the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) provided by the time
server.

 Primary SNTP Server Address, Secondary SNTP Server Address
Enter the server address (up to 64 characters).
The Secondary SNTP server address is used as a backup to the Primary SNTP server address. If the
Primary server is unavailable, the machine will contact the Secondary SNTP server. If you have a
Primary SNTP server, but no Secondary SNTP server, simply leave this field blank.

 Primary SNTP Server Port, Secondary SNTP Server Port
Enter the Port number (1 to 65535).
The Secondary SNTP server port is used as a backup to the Primary SNTP server port. If the Primary
port is unavailable, the machine will contact the Secondary SNTP port. If you have a Primary SNTP
port, but no Secondary SNTP port, simply leave this field blank.
 Synchronization Interval
Enter the number of hours between server synchronization attempts (1 to 168 hours).
Note
• You must configure Date&Time to synchronize the time used by the machine with the time server. Click
Date&Time and then configure Date&Time on the General screen. You can also configure the Date &
Time from the machine’s control panel.
• Choose the Synchronize with SNTP server check box. You also need to verify your time zone settings
correctly. Choose the time difference between your location and UTC from the Time Zone pull-down list.

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 20.)
 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 21.)
• When importing a certificate and a private key. (See Import and export the certificate and private key
uu page 24.)
 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 25.)
