installation.
If you are an Administrator, configure your network printer setting referring to the following instructions.
The default password for the print server is ‘access’. You can use the BRAdmin Professional software or a web browser to change
this password.
(For Windows® Users Only)
Install the BRAdmin Professional Configuration utility
The BRAdmin Professional software is designed to manage your Brother network connected devices. For example, Brother network
ready printers and Brother network ready Multifunction devices can be managed using the BRAdmin Professional software. The
BRAdmin Professional software can also be used to manage devices from other manufacturers whose products support the SNMP
(Simple Network Management Protocol).
