Printing from Unix/Linux Using TCP/IP
Overview
Brother Print/Fax servers are supplied with the Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite. Since virtually all
UNIX host computers support TCP/IP, this capability allows a printer
to be shared on a UNIX Ethernet network. As with all protocols,
TCP/IP communications can proceed concurrently while other
protocols are active, this means that UNIX, NetWare, Apple, and
other computers can share the same Brother print server over an
Ethernet network.
The Linux operating system uses the same setup procedures as
standard Berkeley UNIX systems. Refer to this chapter for a typical
GUI based Linux installation.
Quick Tips:
1 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable the
APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine control
panel. For more information, see APIPA on page 10-9. If the
APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP address of a Brother
Print/Fax server is 192.0.0.192. To change it, use the control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin
software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
machine.
2 To learn how to configure the IP address on your machine, see
Chapter 11 of this User’s Guide.
3 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
4 The default name for a Brother Print/Fax server is usually
BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address of the Print/Fax server).
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 1
5 When configuring the PRINTCAP file, pay particular attention to
the service names, BINARY_P1 and TEXT_P1.
TCP/IP
Brother Print/Fax servers appear to the network as a UNIX host
computer with a unique IP address running the lpd (line printer
daemon) protocol. As a result, any host computer that supports the
Berkeley remote LPR command can spool jobs to Brother print
servers without the need for any special software on the host
computer. For special applications, raw TCP ports are also available.
Brother Print/Fax servers also support the FTP protocol. This
protocol can be used to send print jobs from Unix systems.
The Brother Print/Fax server is pre-configured to run on a TCP/IP
network with a minimum of setup. The only mandatory configuration
of the Print/Fax server is the allocation of an IP address, which can
be either automatically assigned using DHCP, BOOTP etc., or
manually assigned using the ARP command, BRAdmin Professional
utility, or the machine control panel.
For setting the IP address of the Print/Fax server, see
Chapter 11 of this User’s Guide or the Quick Setup Guide
General TCP/IP UNIX Host Configuration
The configuration process for most UNIX systems is described in the
following steps. As this process varies, we recommend that you refer
to your system documentation for additional information.
1 Configure the /etc/hosts file on each UNIX host that needs
to communicate with the Print/Fax server. Use your favorite
editor to add an entry to the /etc/hosts file containing the IP
address and node name of the device. For example:
192.189.207.3
1 - 2 UNIX PRINTING
BRN_310107
The actual format of the entry may vary depending on your system,
check your system documentation and also note the format of other
entries in the /etc/hosts file.
The node name in this file does not necessarily need to be
the same as the one that is actually configured into the
Brother Print/Fax server (the name that appears on the
printer configuration page), however, it is good practice to
make the names the same. Some operating systems, such
as HP-UX, do not accept the “_” character in the default
name, for these systems you must use a different name).
In any case, the node name in the /etc/hosts file must match the
node name in the /etc/printcap file.
Some systems such as HP-UX and AIX allow you to enter the IP
address as the host name when setting up the print queue. If this is
the case, you do not need to configure the hosts file.
2 Choose which Print/Fax server service you want to use. There
are several types of services available on Brother Print/Fax
servers. Binary services pass data through unmodified and are
therefore required for PCL or PostScript rasterized graphics
printouts. Text services add a carriage return at the end of each
line for proper formatting of UNIX text files (which end in linefeed
and do not have carriage returns). The text service can also be
used for non-rasterized graphics, such as ASCII PostScript
graphics or many types of PCL graphics.
Choose one of the available services (a service name will be
used in step 3):
BINARY_P1 Binary data
TEXT_P1
Text data (CR added)
You may set up multiple print queues on your UNIX host
computer for the same Print/Fax server, each one with a
different service name (for example, one queue for binary
graphics jobs and one for text jobs).

3 Configure the /etc/printcap file on each host computer to
specify the local print queue, the Print/Fax server name (also
called remote machine or rm), and the Print/Fax server service
name (also called remote printer, remote queue, or rp), and the
spool directory.
This step applies to the majority of UNIX systems, including
Linux, Sun OS (but not Solaris 2.xx), Silicon Graphics (lpr/lpd
option required), DEC ULTRIX, DEC OSF/1, and Digital
UNIX. SCO UNIX users should follow these steps, but should
also see SCO UNIX Configuration on page 1-10 section.
Users of RS/6000 AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris 2.xx, and other
systems that do not use the printcap file should skip to Step
4. SCO user's should also skip to Step 4 (SCO uses the
printcap file, but this file is automatically configured via the
rlpconf command).
An example of a typical printcap file:
laser1|Printer on Floor 1:\
:lp=:\
:rm=BRN_310107:\
:rp=TEXT_P1:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/laser1:
Make sure this information is added to the end of the printcap
file. Also make sure that the last character in the printcap file
is a colon “:”.
This will create a queue named laser1 on the host computer
that communicates to a Brother print server with a node
name (rm) of BRN_310107 and a service name (rp) of
TEXT_P1 printing text files to a Brother printer through spool
directory /usr/spool/lpd/laser1. If you are printing
binary graphics files, you would use the service BINARY_P1
instead of TEXT_P1.
1 - 4 UNIX PRINTING
The rm and rp options are not available on some UNIX
systems, so if necessary check your documentation to
determine the equivalent options.
Users of Berkeley-compatible UNIX systems can use the lpc
command to obtain the printer status:
%lpc status
laser1:
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no entries
no daemon present
Users of AT&T-compatible UNIX systems can generally use
the lpstat or rlpstat commands to obtain similar status
information. Because this procedure varies from system to
system, refer to your system documentation for the exact
usage.
4 Skip this section if you have completed Step 3, unless you have
an SCO UNIX system.
If you have an HP-UX system, IBM RS/6000 AIX computer, or Sun
Solaris 2.xx, there is no printcap file. This is also true for some other
AT&T-based UNIX systems, as well as many VMS-based TCP/IP
software packages (for example, UCX, TGV Multinet, etc.). On SCO
systems, there is a printcap file, but it is automatically configured by
the rlpconf command. Most of these systems generally use a printer
setup program to define the service name (remote printer), the print
server name (remote machine) or IP address, and the local queue
name (spool directory). Refer to the appropriate section depending
on your version of Unix.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 5
Linux Configuration
If you do not wish to use the command line interface to configure your
Linux distribution, you may wish to use the Linux Printer System
Manager application on your GUI. To do this, do the following:
1 From the Linux Printer System Manager screen, click the Add
button.
2 You will now be asked to specify which Printer type you are
using, select the Remote Unix (lpd) Queue option and click
OK.
3 You must now specify the remote host name, remote queue
name and the input filter to use.
4 The Remote Host name is the IP address of the printer, or the
name from the hosts file which corresponds to the IP address of
the printer.
5 The Remote Queue name is the service name that the printer
will use when processing the data. Generally we recommend
that you use the name “BINARY_P1”, however, if you are
planning to send text documents that do not have a carriage
return and a line feed, then use “TEXT_P1”.
6 Select the appropriate Input Filter from the list of available
printers on your particular build of Linux.
In order to make your settings work, select the Restart lpd option.
As soon as the lpd server restarts, you will be able to send printed
documents from your server.
Linux Configuration Using CUPS
Many Linux systems support Common Unix Printing System
(CUPS).
1 - 6 UNIX PRINTING
HP-UX Configuration
In the case of HP-UX10.xx, the sam program is used to set up the
remote printer. The steps are as follows:
1 Execute the sam program. From the list of options, select
Printers and Plotters.
2 Select LP Spooler.
3 Select Printers and Plotters.
4 Select Actions and then Add Remote Printer/Plotter.
5 Enter any name as the Printer Name (this will be the name of
the print queue).
6 Enter the IP address of the Print/Fax server as the Remote
System Name.
7 Enter the desired Print/Fax server service name as the Remote
Printer Name.
8 Check the box next to Remote Printer is on BSD system.
9 You may accept the default values for the remaining items.
10 Click OK to configure the printer.
You should now be able to print using the lp-d command with the
printer name.
If you are using the HP distributed print service, the configuration
procedure is slightly different because you are sending the print jobs
to a file server, which in turn spools the job to the Print/Fax server.
You must therefore know the name of the file server (spooler host) in
addition to the above information. You will add a physical and a
remote printer, and then assign a logical printer to the remote printer
(a unique name that does not match any other name). To print, use
the lp -d command with the logical printer name.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 7
Earlier versions of HP-UX use similar procedures to 10.xx users:
1 Enter sam and select Peripheral Devices and then Add
Remote Printer (not Networked printer).
2 Enter the following remote printer settings (the other settings do
not matter):
■ Line printer name (user-selectable).
■ Remote system name (the Print/Fax server name; must
match what is in hosts file or use Print/Fax server IP
address).
■ Remote printer queue (Print server binary or text service
name, e.g. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
■ Remote Printer is on a BSD System (Yes).
IBM RS/6000 AIX Configuration
The RS/6000 AIX operating system uses the smit program to set up
the remote printer. The procedure is as follows for AIX 4.0 and later:
1 Enter smit and select devices.
2 Select Printer/Plotter.
3 Select Print Spooling.
4 Select Add a Print Queue.
5 Select Remote.
6 Enter the following Remote Printer Settings:
Name of queue (user selectable)
Host name of Remote Printer (Print/Fax server name; must
match name in /etc/hosts file or use the print server IP
address)
Name of queue on remote printer (Print/Fax server binary or
text service name, eg. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
Type of print spooler. BSD (press the LIST button and choose
BSD)
1 - 8 UNIX PRINTING
The procedure for pre-V4.0 systems is as follows.
1 Enter smit and select devices.
2 Select printer/plotter.
3 Select manage remote printer subsystem.
4 Select client services.
5 Select remote printer queues.
6 Select add a remote queue.
7 Enter the following remote queue settings:
■ Name of queue to add (user selectable).
■ Activate the queue (Yes).
■ Destination host (Print/Fax server name; must match name
in /etc/hosts file or use the Print/Fax server IP address)
■ Name of queue on remote printer (Print/Fax server binary
or text service name, eg. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
■ Name of device to add (user selectable; for example lp0).
Sun Solaris 2.x Configuration
Sun Solaris 2.x uses the lpsystem and lpadmin programs for remote
printer configuration:
lpsystem -t bsd prnservername
lpadmin -p queue -s prnservername!prnserverservice
accept queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
enable queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
Where queue is the name of the local Print/Fax queue.
prnservername is the name of the Print/Fax server (must match
the entry in the /etc/hosts file or IP address).
prnserverservice is the print server BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1
service.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 9
If this is the first printer configured, you must also use the lpsched
command prior to the accept command.
As an alternative, you may use Printer Manager in the Admintool
utility under OpenWindows. Select Edit, Add, and Add Access to
Remote Printer. Then enter the Print/Fax server name in the format
prnservername!\prnserverservice as described above.
Make sure that the printer server OS is set to BSD (the default
setting), and click Add.
Note that we recommend that you use the /etc/hosts file for the
printer name rather than NIS or other name services. Also note that
due to a bug in the Sun lpd implementation on Solaris 2.4 and earlier
releases, you may experience problems printing very long print jobs.
If this is the case, a workaround is to use the raw TCP port software
as described later in this chapter.
SCO UNIX Configuration
To configure a printer in version Version 5.x of SCO Unix, use the
SCOADMIN program.
1 Select Printers and then Print Manager.
2 On the menu select Printer and then Add Remote followed by
Unix...
3 Enter the IP address of the Print/Fax server, and type in the
name of the printer that will be used to spool to.
4 Deselect Use External remote Printing Protocol...
5 To eject the printed page, add the command rp=lpaf to the
/etc/printcap file.
1 - 10 UNIX PRINTING
SCO UNIX requires TCP/IP V1.2 or later to work with Brother print
servers. You must first configure the /etc/hosts and
/etc/printcap files as described in step 2. Then run the
sysadmsh program as follows:
1 Select Printers.
2 Select Configure.
3 Select Add.
4 Enter the name of the print queue you entered in the
/etc/printcap file as the Printer name.
5 Enter anything as the Comment, and Class name.
6 For the Use printer interface select Existing.
7 Press the F3 key to get a list of available interfaces, and select
the desired one as the Name of interface using the cursor keys
(Dumb is a good choice).
8 Select Direct as the Connection.
9 Enter the desired Device name (/dev/lp generally works).
10 Select Hardwired as the Device.
11 Select No for the Require banner field.
Older SCO Unix Systems
The Brother NC-9100h Print/Fax servers support the FTP protocol.
Earlier SCO Unix systems are often configured to print using the FTP
protocol.
IBM AS/400
To use a Brother Print/Fax server with an IBM AS/400 running IBM's
TCP/IP gateways services for OS/400 (the OS/400 system must be
v3.1 or later)
Use the CFGTCP command at your OS/400 prompt to add the Print/
Fax server's TCP/IP address to the AS/400 host table.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 11
Use the following one-line OS/400 command to create the LPD
queue:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(<queuename> RMSTSYS
(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ(<service>)
AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE (*OTHER)
MFRTYPMDL (<driver>)
INTNETADR('<ipaddress>') TEXT
('<description>')
where <queuename> is the new AS/400 print queue name,
<service> is the Print/Fax server service name (BINARY_P1 or
TEXT_P1) <driver> is the OS/400 printer driver name (*HP4 is
recommended if in doubt), and <ipaddress> is the IP address of
the Print/Fax server. Note that the IP address and description must
be enclosed in single quotes.
Other Systems
Other systems use similar programs to set up Print/Fax servers.
These programs will generally ask for the following information:
Requested information:
You should use:
remote printer
Binary or Text service name
remote host computer name
Any name (must match the
name in the printcap file, if any)
or in some cases, you may enter
the Print/Fax server IP address
here
remote host IP address
IP address of Print/Fax server.
Technical support specialists for these companies can usually
answer configuration questions if you provide them with the
equivalent UNIX configuration information (tell them that the Print/
Fax server looks like a remote UNIX host computer running the lpd
line printer daemon).
1 - 12 UNIX PRINTING
If you have not created a spool directory for the Brother Print/Fax
server on your UNIX host computer, you will need to do so now (the
printer setup utilities in HP/UX, AIX, Solaris 2.xx, and other systems
will automatically create the spool directory). The lpd spool directory
is usually located in the /usr/spool directory (check with your
system manager to see if the location is different for your system). To
create a new spool directory, use the mkdir command. For
example, to create a spool directory for the queue laser1, you would
enter:
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/laser1
On some systems it is also necessary to start the daemon. This is
done on Berkeley-compatible UNIX systems with the lpc start
command as shown in the following example:
lpc start laser1

Printing from Windows NT® 4.0,
Windows® 2000/XP, LAN Server and
Warp Server
Overview
Users of Windows NT® 4.0 can print directly to a network-ready
Brother machine using the TCP/IP protocol. Microsoft Windows NT®
4.0 users must install Microsoft’s “TCP/IP Printing“ protocol.
Windows® 2000/XP users are able to send print jobs directly to the
printer without installing any additional software. Brother's print
server also supports transparent printing from IBM LAN Server and
OS/2 Warp Server file servers, as well as from OS/2 Warp Connect
workstations using the TCP/IP protocol.
Quick Tips:
1 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable the
APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine control
panel. For more information, see APIPA on page 10-9. If the
APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP address of a Brother
Print/Fax server is 192.0.0.192. To change it, use the control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin
software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
machine.
2 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
3 Windows NT® 4.0 users must install the Microsoft “TCP/IP
Printing“ protocol.
4 Windows® 2000/XP users can print using TCP/IP using the
standard Network Printing software and IPP protocol software
built into any Windows® 2000/XP installation.
2 - 1 TCP/IP PRINTING
5 Windows® 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP
protocol via a Windows® 2000/XP computer provided that the
Microsoft Internet Print Services software is installed on the
client PC, Internet Information Server (IIS) is installed and
running on the Windows® 2000/XP computer and that the client
PC is using version 4 or later of Microsoft Internet Explorer. For
more information, see Windows® 2000/XP IPP Printing on page
5-9.
6 The default name for a Brother Print/Fax server is usually
BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address of the Print/Fax server).
Windows NT® 4.0 and Windows® 2000/XP (TCP/IP)
Configuration
If you have not already done so, install the TCP/IP protocol onto your
Windows NT® 4.0 system. This is done via the Network icon in the
Control Panel window of the Windows NT® 4.0 system (use the
Start button on Windows NT® 4.0 to access the Settings/Control
Panel menu). The default configuration of Windows® 2000/XP
automatically installs the TCP/IP protocol. Refer to the appropriate
section in this chapter for more information.
Windows® 2000/XP Printing
(Printer Driver not yet installed)
By default, Windows® 2000/XP systems install with all the necessary
software required for you to be able to print. This chapter describes
the two most commonly used configurations, Standard TCP/IP Port
printing and IPP (Internet Printing Protocol). If you have already
installed the printer driver, jump to the printer driver already
installed section.

How to Print in a Windows® 95/98/Me
Peer to Peer network
Overview
Microsoft's Windows® 95/98/Me operating systems feature built-in
networking capabilities. These capabilities allow a Windows® PC to
be configured as a client workstation in a file server based network
environment.
For smaller networks, Windows® 95/98/Me also allows the PC to
operate in a peer-to-peer mode. In this mode, the PC can share
resources with other PCs on the network without the need for a
central file server.
Quick Tips:
1 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable the
APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine control
panel. For more information, see APIPA on page 10-9. If the

Brother Print/Fax server range supports SMB (Server Message
Block) over the TCP/IP protocol via the NetBIOS interface. This
means that just like regular Windows® PC's, Brother printers can
appear in your network neighborhood. The main advantage of
NetBIOS printing is that you are able to print from legacy DOS
applications that are running on PC's that are connected to Microsoft
networks.
Quick Tips:
1 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable the
APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine control
panel. For more information, see APIPA on page 10-9. If the
APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP address of a Brother
Print/Fax server is 192.0.0.192. To change it, use the control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin
software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
machine.
2 To learn how to configure the IP address on your machine, see
Chapter 11 of this User’s Guide .
3 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
4 The default domain name of the Print/Fax server is WORKGROUP,
to change it use your web browser or the BRAdmin Professional
utility.

Print Server Configuration
In order for this function to work, you must correctly change the
DOMAIN name or WORKGROUP name to match that of your
network. Once this is done, the Print/Fax server will appear
automatically in your network neighborhood and you will be able to
send print documents to it without having to install additional
software. However, in some instances you may find that your
Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 systems may
receive “Printer is busy” error messages when more than one person
attempts to access the printer. In this instance Brother has provided
the “Brother NetBIOS Port Monitor” software which allows users to
continue spooling print jobs while the printer is busy, down or out of
paper. The port monitor will hold the jobs until the printer is again
available.
When you install Windows® 95/98/Me you are asked which
workgroup you belong to. The default workgroup name for Windows®
95/98/Me is WORKGROUP, however you could change this to anything
you want. With Windows NT® 4.0, Microsoft introduced the concept
of “Domains”. A domain offers centralized security management
whereas a workgroup offers distributed security management. The
Print/Fax server does not care if your network consists of a
Workgroup or a Domain, the only thing you must tell it is the name of
the workgroup or domain. The Brother Print/Fax server automatically
has a default workgroup/domain name of WORKGROUP. If you need to
change name, you can configure the Brother print server to
recognize this. There are three ways of doing this. (If you are unsure
about the name of your workgroup or domain, look in the
identification tab in your network applet).
■ Use BRAdmin Professional utility (This utility can use the TCP/IP
protocol or Netware IPX protocol - no file server necessary.)
■ Use a Web browser (the Print/Fax server must have a valid IP
address and your computer must also have a valid IP address);
you can configure the IP address by using BRAdmin Professional
utility.
■ Use front panel on the machine. For more information, see
Chapter 10 of this User’s Guide.
NETBIOS PEER TO PEER PRINTING 4 - 2
Because of the way that Microsoft networks work, the Print/
Fax server may take several minutes to appear in the
network neighborhood. You will also find that the Print/Fax
server may take several minutes to disappear from the
network neighborhood even if the printer is switched off. This
is a feature of Microsoft workgroup and domain based
networks.
Changing the workgroup/domain name using a
web browser
You can change the workgroup/domain name using BRAdmin
Professional utility. To do this press NetBIOS tab and then enter your
workgroup/domain name into the Domain Name text box.
You can also use a standard WWW browser to change the NetBIOS
name. To do this, connect to the print server using its IP address and
then select the Configure NetBIOS option from the Network
Configuration screen, then enter your workgroup/domain name into
the Domain Name text box. Make sure you submit the changes
(click on the Submit button).

Internet Printing Installation
Overview
Brother's Brother Internet Print (BIP) software, for Windows® 95/98/
Me and Windows NT® 4.0, allows a PC user at one location to send
a print job to a Brother Printer at a remote location via the Internet.
For example, a user on a PC in New York could print a document
directly from his Microsoft Excel application program to a printer in
Paris.
Windows® 2000/XP users can also use this BIP software, but are
recommended to use the IPP protocol support that is part of the
Windows® 2000/XP operating systems. Skip to the “Windows® 2000
IPP Printing” section of this document.
Quick Tips:
1 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable the
APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine control
panel. For more information, see APIPA on page 10-9. If the
APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP address of a Brother
Print/Fax server is 192.0.0.192. To change it, use the control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin
software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
machine.
2 To learn how to configure the IP address on your machine, see
Chapter 11 of this User’s Guide.
3 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
4 Windows® 2000/XP users can print using TCP/IP using the
standard Network Printing software and IPP protocol software
built into any Windows® 2000/XP installation.
5 - 1 CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS®
5 Windows® 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP
protocol via Windows® 2000 computer, provided that the
Microsoft Internet Print Services software is installed on the
client PC, Internet Information Server (IIS) is installed and
running on the server and that the client PC is using version 4
or later of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Brother Internet Print General Information
The BIP software is installed using a standard Windows® 95/98/Me/
2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 Installation Wizard. It creates a
virtual port on the Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT®
4.0 PC that operates in a similar way to the standard LPT1 printer
port from the application program point of view. The user can use the
Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 Print Manager
to create a printer that uses this port along with a standard Windows®
95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0-compatible printer. Any
Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 applications
program can therefore print to this printer (and hence to the virtual
port) without modification or operational procedure.
When a job is printed to the BIP virtual port, it is actually MIMEencoded (converted to a standard Internet E-mail message) and sent
out to a Brother Print/Fax server at the remote location. This means
that BIP is compatible with most common E-mail software packages.
The only requirement is that the E-mail server be capable of sending
E-mail message over the Internet.
In more detail, the procedure works in the following way:
■ If you are connected to a Local Area Network, the E-mail message
is passed to the E-mail server, which in turn transmits the
message out over the Internet using the SMTP protocol (Simple
Mail Transport Protocol) to the remote Print/Fax server.
■ If you are connecting via a modem directly to an Internet Service
Provider (ISP), the ISP handles the routing of the E-mail to the
remote Print/Fax server.
CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS® 5 - 2
■ At the remote site, an E-mail server receives the E-mail message.
The remote Print/Fax server, which has its own E-mail address,
uses the POP3 protocol (Post Office Protocol 3) to download the
E-mail message from the E-mail server. It then decodes the
attachment and prints it out on the printer.
If an E-mail is received that has not been configured to use
the BIP virtual port driver, the printer will print the E-mail out
as a text document.
Brother Internet Print: Configuring the Brother
Print/Fax Server
The Print/Fax server can be configured using BRAdmin Professional
utility or by using a web browser.
Print Server Configuration Checklist
Before configuring the print server to receive BIP jobs, be
sure that the E-mail server at the remote site (the receiving
end) is configured to handle the TCP/IP POP3, and SMTP
protocols (SMTP is only required if the notification feature is
enabled).
1 Configure the POP3 server on the E-mail server at the remote
site with a mail account (Mailbox name) and password for the
Brother Print/Fax server (generally, the mail account name will
be the first part of the Email address; for example, if you assign
the E-mail address emailprinter@xyz.com, then the mail
account name would be emailprinter).
2 Make sure that the Print/Fax server is installed and running with
TCP/IP enabled and has a valid IP address assigned to it.
Because access to the E-mail server on most networks is usually
restricted, you may need to have your network administrator check
the configuration and add the mail account.
5 - 3 CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS®
Brother Internet Print: Using BRAdmin
Professional utility to Configure the Print Server
Skip this section if you wish to use the Web Browser to
configure the Print/Fax server.
Using the BRAdmin Professional utility, you can configure
the Brother print server using the TCP/IP protocol, or the IPX
protocol.
The steps required to configure the Print/Fax server to receive print
jobs from a Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 PC
running the BIP software are as follows.
1 Start BRAdmin Professional utility.
2 Select the node name of the desired Brother Print/Fax server
from the list and double click on it. (the default node name is
usually BRN_xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address (MAC address)). You will be prompted for a
password; the default password is access.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing
out the machine configuration page. For information on how
to print the configuration page on your Print/Fax server, see
Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test
Switch) on page 13-4.
3 Click on the POP3/SMTP tab.
4 Enter the address of the POP3 server (consult your network
administrator if you do not know this address).
5 Enter the mailbox name for the remote Brother Print/Fax server.
Usually this will be the first part of the E-mail address (for
example, if the E-mail address of the print server is
emailprinter@xyz, then the mailbox name would be
emailprinter).
6 Enter the password for the mailbox, if any.
CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS® 5 - 4
7 The Print/Fax server is configured by default to poll the POP3
server every 10 minutes. You may change this value, if desired.
8 If you have enabled notification, enter the address of your SMTP
server (consult your network administrator if you do not know
this address).
9 Press the OK button and save the changes. Now exit the
BRAdmin Professional utility. You have now configured the
Print/Fax server to receive print jobs.
Brother Internet Print: Using a Web Browser to
Configure the Print Server
1 Connect to the printer server IP address using your web
browser.
2 When you reach the network configuration screen, you will be
prompted for a password. The default password is “access”.
3 Select the Configure POP3/SMTP option and enter the
information as described above. For more information, see
Brother Internet Print: Using BRAdmin Professional utility to
Configure the Print Server on page 5-4.
4 You should see a Segmented Message Timeout option. If a
print job is separated into multiple E-mail messages using the
Partial E-mail Print feature of the BIP, this value indicates how
long the Print/Fax server will wait for all of the segments of the
message to arrive.

General Information
In order to use a Brother Print/Fax server on a NetWare network, one
or more file servers must be configured with a print queue that the
Print/Fax server can service. Users send their print requests to the
file server's print queue, and the jobs are then spooled (either
directly, or in the case of remote printer mode, via an intermediate
Netware Print Server) to the appropriate Brother Print/Fax server.
The system administrator can create Bindery (NetWare 3), NDS
(NetWare 3 and NetWare 4) based queues in a single environment
without having to switch between applications by using the BRAdmin
Professional utility.
NetWare 5 users wishing to configure an NDPS printer must use the
NWADMIN application supplied with NetWare 5. Please note that it
is possible to create IPX BINDERY or NDS based queues on a
NetWare 5 system using the BRAdmin Professional utility.
You must install the Novell NetWare Client 32 if you wish to create
queue information on your NetWare servers using the BRAdmin
Professional utility.
If you can't use the BRAdmin Professional utility in your environment,
you can create the queue using the traditional NetWare PCONSOLE
utility or NWADMIN utilities, but you will then also need to use a
WWW browser to configure the Print/Fax server.
Brother Print/Fax servers can service up to 16 file servers and 32
queues.

Creating a NDPS Printer Using NWADMIN for
NetWare5
With NetWare 5, Novell has released a new preferred printing
system called Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS). Before the
Print/Fax server can be configured, NDPS must be installed on the
NetWare 5 server and an NDPS Manager configured on the server.
For further information regarding NDPS printers and printing
please see Other Sources of Information on page 6-13.
NDPS Manager
This creates a NDPS manager that interacts with services running at
the server and manages an unlimited number of printer agents.
You have to create an NDPS manager within an NDS tree before
creating server-based printer agents. If the NDPS manager controls
a printer attached directly to the server, you must load the manager
on the server that the printer is attached to.
1 In NetWare administrator, navigate to the area you want the
NDPS manager to reside. Select Object | Create | NDPS
Manager and click OK.
2 Enter an NDPS manager name.
3 Browse to a server (which has NDPS installed but no NDPS
manager installed) where you want to install the NDPS manager
and then to the volume you want the NDPS manager database
assigned to. Click create.
NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING 6 - 3
NDPS Broker
When NDPS is installed, an NDPS broker is loaded onto the network.
One of the Broker services Resource Management Service allows
Printer Drivers to be installed onto the server for use with Printer
Agents.
To add a Printer Driver to the Broker:
1 Make sure the Resource Management Service is enabled.
2 Open the Broker Object's main window in NetWare

Overview
Brother print servers support the AppleTalk protocol running over
Ethernet (also known as EtherTalk). This allows Macintosh® users to
print at the same time as all other Ethernet network using the
AppleTalk (also referred to as EtherTalk) protocol.
With the release of System 8.6 or later, Apple introduced a TCP/IP
printing capability. This allows Macintosh® users to send print jobs
using the TCP/IP protocol.
With the release of OS/X 10.2, Apple® introduced support for Simple
Network Configuration capabilities.Simple Network Configuration
supports automatic network configuration.If you choose to use the
Simple Network Configuration of your product, you usually do not
need to configure any IP address settings yourself.

6 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable
the APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine
control panel. For more information, see APIPA on page
10-9. If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP
address of a Brother Print/Fax server is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the control panel, the BRAdmin
Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your
DHCP server allocate an IP address to the machine.

Configuring DLC on Other Systems
To use DLC on other network systems, you will generally need
vendor-supplied software. Typically such software will support the
Brother Print/Fax servers. Follow the vendor's instructions to install
the DLC protocol on your system.
Once the protocol is installed, create a network port in the same way
that you did for Windows NT® 4.0 in the previous sections. The MAC
address (Ethernet address) of the Print/Fax server should
automatically appear during the configuration process.
DLC PRINTING 8 - 4
The final step is to create a printer using the normal operating system
printer setup method. The only difference is that instead of
connecting the printer to the LPT1 parallel port, you point it to the
network port you just created.
Brother does not recommend using the DLC protocol with
Windows® for Workgroups 3.11 in a peer-to-peer
configuration if the printer will be heavily used. This is
because jobs may be rejected due to print spooler timeouts.
The best solution in these situations is to set up one PC as a
server for handling network print jobs. All of the other PCs
send their print jobs to the server PC using NetBEUI or
TCP/IP, and the server PC then uses DLC to send the print
jobs to the Brother print server.

How to use a Web Browser to
manage your Device
Overview
A standard Web Browser (we recommend Netscape Navigator
version 4.0 or later/Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or later)
can be used to manage your machine using the HTTP (Hyper Text
Transfer Protocol). You can get the following information from a
printer on your network using a web browser:
1 Printer status information.
2 Change Fax configuration items, such as Initial Setup. One
Touch Dial settings and Remote Fax.
3 You can also change network settings such as TCP/IP
information, Internet Fax address information, etc.
4 Software version information of the machine and print server.
5 Change network and machine configuration details.
You must use the TCP/IP protocol on your network and have a valid
IP address programmed into the Print/Fax server and your computer.
Quick Tips:
1 The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If you want to disable the
APIPA protocol, set APIPA to Off using the machine control
panel. For more information, see APIPA on page 10-9. If the
APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP address of a Brother
Print/Fax server is 192.0.0.192. To change it, use the control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin
software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
machine.
WEB BASED MANAGEMENT 9 - 1
2 To learn how to configure the IP address on your machine, see
Chapter 11 of this User’s Guide.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4 You can use a web browser on most computing platforms, for
example, Macintosh and Unix users are also able to connect to
the machine and manage it.
5 You can also use the BRAdmin Professional utility to manage
the printer and its network configuration.
How to connect to your machine using a Browser
Type http://printer’s IP Address / into your browser (you
can also use the NetBIOS name of the Print/Fax server, if you are in
a Microsoft Windows domain/Workgroup environment). Enter the
DNS name of the machine if connecting to a network that uses the
DNS protocol.
Password Information
Web Based Management offers two levels of password access.
Users are able to access to the General Setup, Fax settings, I-Fax
Settings and Lists and Reports. The default user name for Users is
user (case sensitive) and the default password is access.
Administrators are able to access all settings. The login name for the
Administrator is admin (case sensitive) and the default password is
access.

Setup TCP/IP
This menu has nine sections: Boot Method, IP Address, Subnet

(For DCP) Press Menu, 4, 1, 1.
2 Press
or
DHCP.
to select Auto, Static, RARP, BOOTP or
3 Press Set.
4 Press Stop/Exit.
Static mode
In this mode the DCP/MFC IP address must be manually assigned.
Once entered the IP address is locked to the assigned address.
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 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. After it is initially powered ON, it
may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the network for a
server.
The machine supports “POWER SAVE mode” and you are
using the AUTO Boot mode, POWER SAVE must be set to
OFF.
10 - 2 FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU
RARP mode
Brother Print / Fax server 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
BRN_310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print / Fax server
and the second entry is the name of the Print / Fax 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 / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp
daemon when it is powered on.
BOOTP mode
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”.
FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU 10 - 3
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 / Fax 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_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN_310107: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 / Fax server will load its IP address from the
BOOTP server when the machine is powered on.
DHCP mode
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several
automated mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have DHCP
Server in your network (typically a Unix, Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows NT® 4.0 or Novell Netware network) the Print / Fax server
will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and
register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic
name services.
If you do not want your Print / Fax server configured via
DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD
to static, this will prevent the Print / Fax server from trying to
obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change
the BOOT METHOD, use the front panel, Web browser or by
using the BRAdmin application.
10 - 4 FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU
IP Address
This field displays the current IP address of the DCP/MFC. If you

other than STATIC, the DCP/MFC will attempt to determine its IP
address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP
address of the Brother network board in your DCP/MFC will probably
be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your
network. We recommend that you contact your network manager for
an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.

11 TCP/IP Configuration
11
Assigning TCP/IP Information
Overview
The TCP/IP protocol requires that each device on the network have
it's own unique IP address. Use the following information to learn
about IP address configuration.
The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol automatically
assigns an IP address from the range: 169.254.1.0 to
169.254.254.255. 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. This can be done in any of the following
ways:
■ From your machine’s control panel settings.
■ BRAdmin Professional utility (for Windows® 95/98/Me/ 2000/XP
and Windows NT® 4.0 using the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols).
■ DHCP, APIPA, Reverse ARP (rarp) or BOOTP.
■ The ARP command.
■ HTTP (Web browser).
■ Other SNMP based management utility.
■ Web BRAdmin software
These configuration methods are described in the following
paragraphs.
The IP address you assign to the Print/Fax 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 router
(gateway).
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 1
Using the machine control panel to allocate
an IP address (Models with LCD panels only)
For details on how to configure IP address information using the
machine control panel , see chapter 10 of this User’s Guide. By using
the control panel on the machine, you can program the IP address
details at the same time that other machine parameters are
configured.
Changing the IP Address using the BRAdmin
Professional utility
Please use BRAdmin Professional utility version on the
CD-ROM that was supplied with your Brother product or
later.Please visit http://solutions.brother.com to download
the latest Brother BRAdmin Professional utility version.
Start the BRAdmin Professional utility (from Windows® 95/98/Me/
2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0).
11 - 2 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
The BRAdmin Professional utility can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP
protocols to communicate with the Brother Print/Fax server.
If you wish to use the TCP/IP protocol to manage the Print/Fax server
make sure that the Print/Fax server has a valid IP address. If you are
not using DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you will want to change the IP
address.There are two ways to change the IP address using the
BRAdmin Professional utility:
■ Use the IPX/SPX protocol.
■ Use the TCP/IP protocol and let BRAdmin Professional utility find
the Brother Print/Fax server as an unconfigured device.
Using BRAdmin Professional utility and the IPX/
SPX Protocol to set the IP address
If your PC is using the Novell Netware Client software and is using
the IPX/SPX protocol, do the following:
1 Select IPX/SPX filter in the left frame of the main window.
2 Check the Print/Fax server name (the default node name is
BRN_xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address (MAC address)).
If you cannot find your server name, select the Device menu and
choose Search Active Devices (you can also press the F4 key) and
try again.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing
out the machine configuration page. For information on how
to print the configuration page on your Print/Fax server, see
Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test
Switch) on page 13-4.
3 Select the Print/Fax server that you wish to configure and
double click it. You will be asked for a password. The default
password is access.
4 Select the TCP/IP tab and set the IP address, Subnet mask
and Gateway as needed.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 3
5 In the IP Config box, click the Static radio button.
6 Click OK.
Restart the print server by using BRAdmin Professional utility or Web
Browser. If you are not sure how to restart the print server, you may
simply turn the machine’s power switch off, and then switch it on.
Using BRAdmin Professional utility and the TCP/
IP Protocol to set the IP address
If your PC is using the TCP/IP protocol, do the following:
1 Select TCP/IP filter in the left frame of the main window.
2 Select the Device menu and choose the Search Active
Devices.
If the MFC server is set to its factory defalt settings without
using a DHCP server, the device will appear as APIPA in the
BRAdmin Professional utility screen.
3 Select the Devices menu and choose Setup Unconfigured
Devices.
4 Select the MAC address of your Print/Fax server and click the
Configure button.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the
machine configuration page. For information on how to print the
configuration page on your Print/Fax server, see Resetting the Print/
Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch) on page 13-4.
5 Enter the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway (if needed)
of your Print/Fax server.
6 Click OK then select Close.
7 With the correctly programmed IP address, you will see the
Brother Print/Fax server in the device list.
11 - 4 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using DHCP to Configure the IP address
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several
automated mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have DHCP
Server in your network (typically a Unix/Linux, Windows NT® 4.0,
Windows® 2000, XP or Novell Netware network) the Print/Fax server
will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and
register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic
name services.
If you do not want your Print/Fax server configured via
DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD
to static so that the Print/Fax server has a static IP address.
This will prevent the Print/Fax server from trying to obtain an
IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT
METHOD, use the machine’s control panel, a Web browser
or by using the BRAdmin Professional utility.
Using APIPA to Configure the IP Address
With Automatic Private IP Addressing (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.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 5
Using ARP to Configure the Print/Fax
Server IP Address
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin Professional utility or the
FAX\MFC’s control panel 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/Fax server and ipaddress is the IP address of the Print/
Fax server. For example:
Windows® Systems
Windows® Systems require the hyphen “-” character between each
digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.189.207.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
11 - 6 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Unix/Linux Systems
Typically, Unix systems require the colon “:” character between
each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.189.207.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there
cannot be a router between the Print/Fax 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/
Fax 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/Fax
server using the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP
command again to change the address. The Print/Fax server
will ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the
IP address again, use a Web Browser, the machine’s control
panel or factory reset the Print/Fax server (which will then
allow you to use the ARP command again).
To configure the Print/Fax server and to verify the connection,
enter the following command ping ipaddress where
ipaddress is the IP address of the Print/Fax server. For
example, ping 192.189.207.2.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 7
Using RARP to Configure the IP Address
The Brother Print/Fax 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
BRN_310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print/Fax server
and the second entry is the name of the Print/Fax 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/Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp
daemon when the printer is powered on.
11 - 8 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using BOOTP to Configure the IP Address
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”.
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/Fax 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_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN_310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.189.207.3:
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 9
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/Fax server will load its IP address from the
BOOTP server when the machine is powered on.
11 - 10 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
12 Internet FAX (MFC Only)

Overview
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 PC's are also able to receive and send
documents, providing that the PC has as an application that can
generate and view TIFF-F files, you can use Microsoft® Imaging or a
TIFF-F viewer application [Pages Viewer] is available as a download
from the Brother Web site http://www.brother.com. Any documents
sent via the MFC will automatically be converted into a TIFF-F
format. If you wish to send and receive messages to and from your
MFC, your mail application on the PC must be able to support the
MIME format.

1 Press Start to send the document.
After the document is scanned, it is transmitted to the Recipient
Internet Fax Machine automatically via your SMTP server. You can
cancel the send operation by pressing the Stop/Exit button during
scanning. After the transmission is finished, the machine will return
to standby mode.
Some E-mail servers do not allow you to send large E-mail
documents (the System Administrator will often place a limit on the
maximum E-mail size). You can enable the Limit Size of the Sent
Mail feature. The machine will display Out of Memory when trying
to send E-mail documents over 1Mbyte 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. You can turn on this feature through the
Web Management utility or the LAN function mode.
Receiving E-mail or Internet Fax
There are 2 ways you can receive E-mail messages:
■ POP3 receiving at regular intervals
■ POP3 receiving (manually initiated)
Using POP3 receiving the MFC must poll the E-mail server to receive
the print jobs. This polling can occur at set intervals (for example, you
can configure the MFC to poll the E-mail server at 10 minute
intervals) or you can manually poll the server by pressing the Shift
+ Start button.
If your MFC starts to receive E-mail print jobs, the LCD panel will
reflect this activity. For example, you will see Receiving on the
LCD panel followed by “xx MAIL(S)”. If you press the Shift + 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 MFC will
display No Mail on the LCD panel for two seconds.
INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY) 12 - 5
If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received
data will be held in the MFC's memory. This data will be printed
automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine. (For
European, Asian and Oceanian MFCs, 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 a PC
When a PC receives an Internet Fax document, the document is
attached to a mail message that informs the PC that it is
receiving a document from an Internet Fax. This is notified in
the Subject field of the received mail message.
If the PC to which you wish to send a document is not running
Windows® 95/ 98/98SE/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0
operating system, please inform the PC's owner that software must
be downloaded for documents in the TIFF-F format to be viewed.
You can use “Microsoft® Imaging” that is supplied with Windows® 95/
98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 but some older versions of
Windows® 95 do not support viewing TIFF-F documents.
Forwarding Received E-mail and Fax Messages
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 PC or Internet Fax. They can also be
forwarded via standard phone lines to another MFC.
Please see User’s Guide included with the machine to check that this
feature is supported. This function is not available for color fax
documents.
12 - 6 INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY)
This can be done using the Web Management Utility or through the
front panel. The steps for configuring Fax Forward can be found in
the User’s Guide supplied with your MFC.
Relay Broadcasting
This function allows the Brother MFC 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 MFC as a relay broadcast device, you must
specify the domain name that you trust at the MFC, in other words,
the portion of the domain 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 10 domain names.
Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a
maximum of 48 fax machines through conventional telephone lines.

Your MFC has an E-mail address of FAX@brother.com, you wish to
send a document from this machine to another MFC 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 MFC in the @brother.com domain.
After the trusted domain is set you can send the document from your
MFC [I.E. FAX@brother.com] by entering the E-mail address of the
MFC [I.E. UKFAX@brother.co.uk] that will forward the document
followed by the phone number of the fax that will receive the

TX Verification Mail
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.
INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY) 12 - 9
To use this feature you must set the Notification option within the
Setup Mail RX and Setup Mail TX options.
Setup Mail (TX)
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 IFax / 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 MFC 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)
There are three possible settings for this option ON/MDN/OFF.
Receive Notification “ON”
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 messages
are send back to the sending station regardless of the request.
12 - 10 INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY)
Error mail
If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet Fax, the mail
server will send an error message back to the MFC 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 MFC was not in a TIFF-F format.”).
Important information on Internet Fax
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 huge, there is a possibility
of unsuccessful transmission.
■ You cannot change font and character size of Internet mail that
you received.

Overview
This chapter describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you
may encounter with a Brother Print/Fax server, it is divided into the
following sections:
1 Installation Problems
2 Intermittent Problems
3 Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting
4 Internet FAX Troubleshooting
Installation problems
If you cannot print over the network, check the following:
1 Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready
to print.
Verify that the machine and the configuration are good by
printing the machine configuration page. For more information,
see Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test
Switch) on page 13-4. If the test fails, check:
a If the LED is not blinking after connected to the network, then
the network firmware settings may be corrupted.
b In this event, try to restore the factory default settings of the
Print/Fax server. To learn how to reset the print server, see
Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test
Switch) on page 13-4. Once you have done that, switch the
machine off and then on again, and try to print out the
configuration page.
13 - 1 TROUBLESHOOTING
2 If the configuration page prints but you cannot print documents,
try the following
If none of the following steps are successful, there is almost
certainly a hardware or network problem!
a If you are using TCP/IP:
Try pinging the Print/Fax server from the host operating
system command prompt with the command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the Print/Fax server IP address (note
that in some instances it can take up to two minutes for the
Print/Fax server to load its IP address after setting the IP
address). If a successful response is received, then proceed
to the UNIX, TCP/IP Windows NT® 4.0/LAN Server,
Windows®98/95/Me Peer to Peer (LPR), Internet Printing or
Web Browser troubleshooting section. Otherwise, proceed to
step 3, and then go to TCP/IP Troubleshooting section.
b If you are using Novell system:
Verify that the Print server can be seen on the network. To do
this, login as the SUPERVISOR (not as someone with
supervisor privileges) or ADMIN (for Netware 4 or later
servers), go into PCONSOLE or NWADMIN, select PRINT
SERVER INFORMATION, and select the name of the Print
server (make sure that you have entered the Print server
name). If you can see Print Server Status and
Control in the menu, then the Brother Print/Fax server is
visible to the network, proceed to the Novel NetWare
Installation Troubleshooting Section. Otherwise, go to step 3.
c If you are running AppleTalk for Macintosh:
In case of using Postscript driver make sure that you can see
the Print/Fax server name under the LaserWriter 8 icon in the
Chooser. If it is visible, then the connection is good, so
proceed to the AppleTalk for Macintosh Section. Otherwise,
go to step 3.
TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 2
3 If you cannot make any of the connections in step 2, check the
following:
a Make sure the machine is powered on and on-line.
b Check the cabling, network connection, and print out a
configuration page in the Network STATISTICS information to
see if bytes are being transmitted and received.
c Check to see if there is any LED activity.
The NC-9100h Print/Fax server has two LEDs on the back panel
of the machine. The upper side LED shows Link/Speed status.
The lower side LED shows Activity (Receive/Transmit) status.
■ No light:
If the both of two LEDs are off, then the Print/Fax server is not
connected to the network.
■ Link/Speed LED is orange: Fast Ethernet
The Link/Speed LED will be orange if the Print/Fax server is
connected to a 100BaseTX Fast Ethernet network.
■ Link/Speed LED is green: 10BaseT Ethernet
The Link/Speed LED will be green if the Print/Fax server is
connected to a 10BaseT Ethernet network.
4 If you are using a repeater or hub, make sure that SQE
(heartbeat) is turned off at the hub (if applicable). Also, if you
have a hub or multi-port repeater, verify that the hub or repeater
port is good by trying the Print/Fax server on a different port or
on the other hub or multi-port repeater.
5 If you have a bridge or router located between the Print/Fax
server and host computer, make sure that the device is set up
to allow the Print/Fax server to send and receive data from the
host. For example, a bridge can be set up to only allow certain
types of Ethernet addresses to pass through (a process known
as filtering); therefore, such a bridge must be configured to allow
Brother Print/Fax server addresses. Likewise, a router can be
set up to pass only certain protocols, so be sure that the desired
protocol can be passed through to the Print/Fax server.
13 - 3 TROUBLESHOOTING
6 If the job exits the queue but does not print, make sure that you
are not trying to print a text job to a PostScript printer. If you
have a printer that is capable of automatic language switching,
make sure that the printer is not forced into PostScript mode.
Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory
settings (Test Switch)
■ Short push:

Intermittent Problems
If the Print/Fax server and printer start up OK, but you intermittently
have problems printing, check the following:
1 If you can print small jobs but large graphics jobs are distorted
or incomplete, make sure that you have adequate memory in
your printer and the latest printer driver installed on your
computer. The latest Brother printer drivers can be downloaded
from http://solutions.brother.com
2 Check the individual protocol troubleshooting sections in this
chapter for additional causes of intermittent printer problems.
TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 4
TCP/IP Troubleshooting
If you are using TCP/IP and cannot print to the Print/Fax server and
you have checked the hardware and network as described in the
previous steps, then check the following:
It is always a good idea to try following in order to eliminate
the possibility of setup errors.
Turning off the printer and then on again, Deleting and recreating the
Print server and creating a new print queue in order to eliminate the
possibility of setup errors.
1 The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP
address. Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the
Print/Fax server (via the configuration page. Make sure that no
other nodes on the network have this address (DUPLICATE IP
ADDRESS ARE THE BIGGEST CAUSE OF TCP/IP PRINTING
PROBLEMS).
2 Make sure that the TCP/IP protocol of the Print/Fax server is
enabled.
3 If you used rarp, make sure that you started the rarp daemon on
any workstation using the rarpd, rarpd-a, or equivalent
command. Verify that the /etc/ethers file contains the
correct Ethernet address and that the Print/Fax server name
matches the name in the /etc/hosts file.
4 If you used bootp, make sure that you started the bootp daemon
on any UNIX workstation and bootp is enabled (i.e., the “#” is
removed from the bootp entry) in the /etc/bootptab file is
correctly configured.
5 Also verify that host computer and the Print/Fax server are
either on the same subnet, otherwise that the router is properly
configured to pass data between the two devices.
UNIX Troubleshooting
1 Make sure that the /etc/printcap file (if applicable) is typed
in correctly. In particular, look for missing “:” and “\” characters,
because a small error anywhere in the file can have major
consequences. Also check the /usr/spool directory to make
sure that you have created a valid spool directory.
13 - 5 TROUBLESHOOTING
2 If you are using a Linux operating system, the X-Window Print
tool program that is included with Linux may not properly
configure the etc/printcap file for lpd operation, then you might
also edit the etc/printcap file and change the following line in the
entry for the printer.
if
:lp = /dev/null: \
then to
:lp = :\
3 If you are using a Berkeley-based UNIX, make sure that the
daemon is started on Berkeley based systems with the
command lpc start printer, where printer is the name of the local
print queue.
4 If you are using an AT&T-based UNIX, make sure the printer is
enabled (enable printer, where printer is the name of the local
print queue).
5 Make sure that the lpr/lpd remote line printer service are running
on the host computer (refer to your host computer
documentation for information on how to do this).
6 If text or PCL jobs are run together, try setting the service
(remote printer) with EOT set to string number 2 (<ESC>E). For
example:
SET SERVICE BRN_xxxxxx_P1 EOT 2
7 If PostScript jobs fail to print or are run together, try setting the
service (remote printer) with EOT set to string number 3
(control-D). For example:
SET SERVICE BRN_xxxxxx_P1 EOT 3
8 If the lines of a text file are staggered, make sure that you have
specified a remote printer (rp) name of TEXT in your /etc/
printcap file.
TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 6
9 If you are using Sun Solaris V2.4 or earlier, there is a bug which
causes long print jobs to fail when using a Printer/Fax server. If
you are having trouble printing long jobs (over 1MB), add the
line mx#0 to your etc/printcap file entry.
10 If you cannot print from DEC TCP/IP Service for VMS (UCX),
make sure that you have version 2.0B or later of this software,
because earlier versions will not work with Brother Print/Fax
servers.
Windows NT® 4.0/LAN Server (TCP/IP)
Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing with Windows NT® 4.0 or LAN
Server, check the following:
1 Make sure that TCP/IP and TCP/IP print service are installed
and running on the Windows NT® 4.0 system or the LAN Server
file server.
2 If you are using DHCP and you have not created a reservation
for the Print/Fax server, make sure that you enter the NetBIOS
name of the Print/Fax server in the Name or address of server
providing lpd box.
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer to Peer Print
(LPR) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-toPeer network (LPR method), check the following:
1 Make sure that the Brother LPR Port driver is correctly installed
and configured according to the Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-toPeer chapters.
2 Try to turn the Byte Count on in the Configure port area of
printer driver properties.
You may find that during the installation of BLP software, the screen
that prompts you for a Port name is not displayed. This may happen
on some Windows® 95/98/Me computers. Press the ALT and TAB
keys to make it appear.
13 - 7 TROUBLESHOOTING
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer (HP JetAdmin
compatible method) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-toPeer network, check the following (HP JetAdmin compatible
method):
1 If the Print/Fax server does not show up under JetAdmin on a
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer network, try removing all of
the Windows® 95/98/Me network software from the Network
Control panel and then reinstalling them as follows:
■ First install the IPX/SPX-Compatible Protocol (or the TCP/IP
protocol if you are using a later version of JetAdmin), the
Client for Microsoft Networks, and the network adapter card
driver.
■ Install the Latest HP JetAdmin software.
■ Restart the system, and then add the HP JetAdmin service.
Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0
Peer-to-Peer Print (NetBIOS) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP
and Windows NT® 4.0 (or later) Peer-to-Peer network (NetBIOS),
check the following:
1 Make sure that the Brother NetBIOS Port driver is securely
installed and configured according to the Windows® 95/98/Me/
2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0 Peer-to-Peer (NetBIOS)
chapters. You may find that during the installation of the port
driver, the screen that prompts you for a Port name is not
displayed. This happens on some Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/
XP and Windows NT® 4.0 computers. Press the ALT and TAB
keys to make it appear.
2 Make sure that the Print/Fax server is configured to be in the
same workgroup or domain as the rest of your computers. It may
take several minutes for the Print/Fax server to appear in the
network neighborhood.
TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 8
Brother Internet Print (TCP/IP) Troubleshooting
1 The first step in troubleshooting is to make sure that you have a
valid E-mail connection on both the sending PC and the
receiving Print/Fax server. Try sending an E-mail message from
the PC to a user at the remote site who can receive mail via the
POP3 server. If this does not work, there may be an E-mail
configuration problem on the PC, on the local E-mail server, or
on the remote POP3 server. Double check to make sure that the
E-mail parameters that you configured on the PC and on the
remote Print/Fax server match those that are configured on the
E-mail servers.
2 If you can print small files OK but are having problems printing
large files, the problem may be in the E-mail system. Some
E-mail systems have difficulties printing large files. If the file
does not reach its destination intact, then the problem is with
the E-mail system.
3 You can also enable the partial E-mail print facility on your client
PC, this will split the E-mail up into fragments which should then
not overwhelm your E-mail server. To do this, select the
property dialog of the Brother Internet Print Port.
Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP IPP Troubleshooting
Want to use a different Port number other than 631
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 system.
http://ip_address/ipp
13 - 9 TROUBLESHOOTING
“Get More Info” option in Windows® 2000 not working
“Go to Printer’s Web site” in Windows® XP not working
If you are using a URL of:
http://ip_address:631 or http://ip_address:631/
ipp, the Get More Info option in Windows® 2000 or the Go to
Printer’s Web site option in Windows® XP will not function. If you
wish to use the Get More Info or the Go to Printer’s Web site option
use the following URL:
http://ip_address
This will then force Windows® 2000/XP to use Port 80 to
communicate with the Brother Print/Fax server.
Windows® 95/98/Me clients not able to get the driver from a
Windows® 2000/XP system.
You must be using version 4.0 or later of Internet Explorer and the
Microsoft Internet Print Services software must be installed on
your client computers.
Novell NetWare Troubleshooting
If you cannot print from NetWare and you have checked the
hardware and network as described in the previous steps, first verify
that the Brother Print/Fax server is attached to the server queue by
going to PCONSOLE, selecting PRINT QUEUE INFORMATION,
and then CURRENTLY ATTACHED SERVERS. If the Print server
does not appear in the list of attached servers, then check the
following:
It is always a good idea to try followings in order to eliminate
the possibility of setup errors.
■ Turning off the machine and then on again to force to
rescan the Netware queue.
■ Deleting and recreating the Print server and creating a new
print queue in order to eliminate the possibility of setup
errors.
TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 10
1 If you changed the login password, you must change the
password in both the Brother Print/Fax server (using the
SET NETWARE PASSWORD command if you are using the
BRConfig software or by using a web browser or the BRAdmin
Professional utility) and in the file server (using the PCONSOLE
Print Server Information Change Password
command).
2 If you created the print queue using PCONSOLE and BRConfig
instead of BRAdmin Professional utility, make sure that you
have enabled at least one NetWare file server using the
SET NETWARE SERVER servername ENABLED command.
3 Have you exceeded your NetWare user limit?
4 Make sure that the Print server name you used in PCONSOLE
exactly matches the name that is configured in the Print/Fax
server, and make sure it is defined as a Queue Server for the
print queue.
5 If you are running both 802.3 and Ethernet II frames on different
file servers on your network, there is a possibility that the Print/
Fax server may not make a connection to the desired file server.
Try forcing the frame type to the desired one using the
SET NETWARE FRAME command from the Print/Fax server
remote console or using BRAdmin Professional utility.
6 If you are using DOS CAPTURE statement and losing portions
of your print job, try setting the TIMEOUT parameter in your
CAPTURE statement to a higher value (at least 50 seconds for
Windows®).
AppleTalk Troubleshooting
In case of using Postscript driver, if you cannot print from an
AppleTalk for Macintosh computer and you have checked the
hardware and network as described in the previous steps, then
check the following:
1 Make sure that you are running Phase 2 AppleTalk and that you
have selected the correct network interface from the AppleTalk
Control Panel on the Macintosh.
13 - 11 TROUBLESHOOTING
2 Make sure that the AppleTalk protocol of the Print/Fax server is
enabled.
3 If you have a large network, make sure that you have the Laser
Writer V8.xx or equivalent driver, since earlier versions may
cause PostScript errors. Also, verify that you get the correct
printer information when you select Printer Info from the Setup
button in the Chooser.
4 Make sure that you have selected the correct Printer Description
File (PPD) from the Chooser (otherwise PostScript errors may
result).
5 Verify that you have selected the correct AppleTalk zone.
Because the Print/Fax server gets its zone information from
router broadcasts, it may not be in the zone you expect, and will
therefore not show up in the Chooser. If this is the case, you
may need to force the zone name using BRAdmin Professional
utility, a web browser.
DLC/LLC Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing with DLC/LLC, check the following:
1 Make sure that the DLC/LLC protocol is enabled using either
BRAdmin Professional utility, a web browser or TELNET.
2 Make sure that the MAC address of the Windows® setting is the
same as shown in the network configuration page printout.
Web Browser Troubleshooting (TCP/IP)
1 If you can not connect to the Print/Fax server using your web
browser it may be worth checking the Proxy Settings of your
browser. Look in the Exceptions setting and if necessary, type
in the IP address of the Print/Fax server. This will stop your PC
from trying to connect to your ISP or proxy server every time you
wish to look at the Print/Fax server.
2 Make sure that you are using the proper Web Browser, we
recommend Netscape Navigator version 4.0 or later/ Microsoft
Internet Explorer version 4.0 or later.
TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 12
Internet Fax Troubleshooting
1 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 is printed (Ex. The message
being sent to the machine was not in a TIFF-F format.) All
documents transmitted to the machine via E-mail must be in a
TIFF-F format.
2 If an error message is printed while receiving E-mail text from a
PC ATTACHED FILE FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED the
senders mail application may not be set for a Plain Text format
or Vcard the virtual business card feature may be set to ON.
3 If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME
format, you cannot transmit a document to the receiver.
Depending on the receiver's server, there are some cases that
the error mail will not be sent back.
4 Messages cannot be received in an HTML format. This format
is not supported. All messages must be received in a TIFF-F
Format.
5 If the size of a documents image data is huge, there is a
possibility of unsuccessful transmission if the system
administrator has imposed a limit on the maximum size of Emails and their attachments. The document you are sending
should be separated into smaller documents that will be
accepted by the mail server. (Ex. A 42 page document of the
CCITT#1 test chart is approximately 1Mbyte in size).
6 If you do not receive E-mail, check the Auto Polling setting and
Polling frequency.
7 If you cannot retrieve mail from the mail server, check the
settings for the POP3 server and Mailbox name. Check that the
POP3 password is entered correctly. This setting is case
sensitive.
8 If Relay Broadcast is not forwarding E-mail to a G3 Fax, check
the Relay Broadcast settings and Relay Domain registration. A
Relay Domain must be entered for this function to work.
13 - 13 TROUBLESHOOTING
9 The Relay Broadcasting and Broadcasting features cannot be
used at the same time.
10 Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a
maximum of 48 Fax machines through conventional telephone
lines. If sending to more than 48 locations the sender must
divide the transmission locations into 48 locations or less for
each relay broadcast.
11 When receiving E-mail messages from the POP3 server, the
machine can receive a maximum of 32 mail messages. If there
are more than 32 mail messages in the POP3 server, the
machine will receive a maximum of 32 mail massages and then
receive the remaining after the next polling interval.
12 The NC-9100h Print / Fax Server requires a portion of the user
memory for operation. With the NC-9100h installed the number
of Fax sheets that can be sent or received will be reduced (by
approximately 30 pages of the brother No1 Test Chart) from the
standard machine capacity.

Overview
Depending on your network configuration and application
requirements for sending faxes via a network, you can choose
between Brother Network PC FAX Software or Brother Internet Fax
Printing Software. With either software, viewable document such as
web pages, word documents, PDF documents can be sent from the
users desktop to any standard Facsimile machines, Internet fax
machines and E-mail addresses.
Brother Internet Fax Printing Software (BFP) is a Windows® 95/98/
Me, Windows NT® 4.0 and Windows® 2000/XP software utility that
gives network PC Fax and Internet Fax functionality from the desktop
to users on your network or over the Internet.
BFP utilizes SMTP as the transport for sending documents from your
PC. This allows any PC supported by a SMTP mail server to send an
Internet FAX even if that PC does not have direct access to the
networked machine.
Brother Network PC Fax Software utilizes LPR as the transport for
sending documents from your PC to the networked machine for
transmission. This requires that the sending PC has access to the
network that the sending machine is connected.

Relay Broadcast Function
Before you can successfully use the NC-9100h as a network fax
solution you need to switch the feature “Relay Broadcasting” ON at
the machine. In addition you also need to set a “Trusted Domain” at
the machine.
The easiest way to achieve this is to logon to the machine using Web
Based Management. Open you favorite web browser and enter the
IP address of the network machine. Enter the password of the
NC-9100h Print/Fax Server to access the configuration settings.
14 - 5 BROTHER INTERNET FAX PRINTING SOFTWARE
If you do not know the password contact you Network
Administrator.
Then browse to Internet Settings and Relay Function.
In order for the machine to receive data from the desktop and then
send this information (network fax) to other fax machines the “Relay
Broadcast Function” must be switched “ON”. Also you must tell the
networked machine which networks can relay faxes through your
machine. This is known as setting the “Trusted Domain”. For
instance, if a network machine has an E-mail address of
fax@brother.com and users of this machine also have E-mail
addresses with the same domain name then the machine must be
told to allow these users to send network faxes through the machine.
This is known as the “Relay Function” and “Trusted Domains”. So we
set the trusted domain as brother.com
“Trusted Domains” Provide security for your machine. In that only
users from a particular domain can send faxes through your network
connected machine.

Appendix A
General Information
You can change the configuration of your Print/Fax server using any
of the following methods.
• Brother BRAdmin Professional utility for Windows® 95/98/
Me/2000/XP and Windows NT® 4.0.
• Brother Web BRAdmin Professional utility for IIS*
• HTTP (using a web browser)
• WebJetAdmin Software
BRAdmin Professional utility (Recommended)
The Brother BRAdmin Professional utility can use the TCP/IP or IPX/
SPX protocol. This utility allows you to graphically manage aspects
of the network and printer. It can also be used to upgrade the
firmware of the Print/Fax server.
Web BRAdmin
The Web BRAdmin software is designed to manage all LAN/WAN
Brother network connected devices. By installing the Web BRAdmin
server software on a computer running IIS*, Administrators with a
Web browser can connect to the Web BRAdmin server, which then
communicates with the device itself. Unlike the BRAdmin
Professional utility - which is designed for Windows® systems only the Web BRAdmin server software can be accessed from any client
computer with a web browser that supports Java.
Please note this software may not be included on the CD-ROM that
was supplied with your Brother product. If it was not, please visit
http://solutions.brother.com/webbradmin to learn more about this
software and to download it.
IIS* = Internet Information Server 4.0 or 5.0
APPENDIX A - 1
HTTP (Recommended)
Use your favorite web browser to connect to the Brother Print/Fax
server. This will allow you to configure machine and/or Print/Fax
server parameters.
WebJetAdmin
Brother's Print/Fax server range is HP WebJetAdmin compatible.
APPENDIX A - 2
Appendix B
Using Services
General
A service is a resource that can be accessed by computers that wish
to print to the Brother Print/Fax server. The Brother Print/Fax server
provides the following predefined services (do a SHOW SERVICE
command in the Brother Print/Fax 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).
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript service (switches PJL-compatible
printer to PostScript mode).
PCL_P1
PCL service (switches PJL-compatible printer to
PCL mode).
BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT
AppleTalk and LPD service for Mac OS® 8.6 or
later.
BRN_xxxxxx_P1
NetWare service and AppleTalk service with
Quickdraw Driver for Mac OS® 8.6 - 9.1,
10.1-10.2.1 or greater (TCP/IP is enabled for
backwards compatibility).
Where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for
example, BRN_310107_P1).
A - 3 APPENDIX
Appendix C
Reloading the Print / FAX Server Firmware
General
The firmware on the Print/Fax server is stored in flash memory. This
means that you can upgrade the firmware by downloading the
appropriate update file. To get the latest firmware update, visit the
Brother Solutions web site at http://solutions.brother.com/
The Print / Fax server supports multiple MFC models so when
inserted into the machine the version of the NC-9100h hardware is
checked against the firmware of your machine. If the firmware for
your NC-9100h has been superseded with a later version of firmware
for your model a message is displayed on the LCD. Please update
your firmware.
Some software versions that we provide will automatically
factory reset your Print/Fax server parameters. We try to
avoid doing this. However, if we add a significant new feature
to our Print/Fax server, it can result in the Print/Fax server
being factory reset.
Because of this, we STRONGLY recommend that you make a note
of the current Print/Fax server configuration before you upgrade. To
do this, print out a configuration page. For more information, see
Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch)
on page 13-4.
There are three methods of upgrading the firmware in your Brother
Print/Fax server:
1 Use the BRAdmin Professional utility (Recommended)
2 Use the FTP protocol (Recommended if running on
Macintosh or Unix network)
3 Use another system (such as a Novell or Unix system to send
the new firmware file to the Print/Fax server).
APPENDIX A - 4
Reloading firmware using BRAdmin Professional
utility
The BRAdmin Professional utility can be used to easily re-program
your Brother Print/Fax server.
1 Start BRAdmin Professional utility.
2 Highlight the appropriate Print/Fax server. Then press select the
Control menu and choose Load Firmware. You can select more
than one Print/Fax server by pressing CTRL+<select> or
SHIFT+<select> on each additional Print/Fax server.
There are three possible ways of sending the new software
version to the print server. For whichever method you select,
you must enter a password for the print server. The default
password for the Print/Fax server is access.
3 TFTP PUT from this host
Use this method if you have TCP/IP already installed on your
PC. BRAdmin Professional utility will use the TFTP protocol to
send the new firmware data to the Print/Fax server.
4 TFTP GET from a server
If you have a TFTP server installed in your network (many Unix
systems provide TFTP support), you may wish to use this
option. The new firmware file must be located in the TFTP
BOOT directory on your TFTP server. In this case, your PC
makes the Print/Fax server read the firmware data from the
assigned TFTP server. If you do not provide the correct file
name, then the upgrade will fail. You must also ensure that the
firmware file is set so that the Print/Fax server can read the file.
On Unix systems you can use the chmod command to specify
file attributes. For example, chmod filename 666 allows the
filename to be accessed by anyone. Also make sure that the
TFTP service is running on your Unix server.
A - 5 APPENDIX
5 Netware GET from a server
You must have a Netware server on your network (running IPX/
SPX) and you must store the new firmware file in the SYS/Login
directory of the server. In this case, your PC makes the Print/Fax
server read the firmware data from the assigned Netware
server, the Print/Fax server attaches to the Netware server and
reads the firmware itself.
After sending firmware to the machine, do not turn off the
machine until after the machine has performed an automatic
restart.
Reloading using the FTP Protocol from a
command prompt
By specifying the Print/Fax server PASSWORD AS THE
USERNAME when logging on, it becomes possible to upgrade the
firmware of the Print/Fax server or printer (if supported). The
following example assumes that the Print/Fax server password is
cambridge
D:\>ftp
ftp> open 220.0.250.200
Connected to 220.0.250.200.
220 FTP print service:V-1.05/Use the network

ftp: 1498053 bytes sent in 8.52Seconds
175.77Kbytes/sec.
ftp> close
226 Data Transfer OK.
APPENDIX A - 6
ftp> quit
When you see 226 Data Transfer OK/Entering
FirmWareUpdate mode, you can be sure that the firmware file is
being transferred to the Print/Fax server. If you do not see this
message, the file you are sending to the printer will either be ignored
or the printer will print garbage.
You must use the “bin” command to put the FTP client into
Binary communications mode. If you do not specify the bin
command the upgrade process will not function correctly.
A - 7 APPENDIX
Appendix D
Updating other MFC’s through the Network
It is possible to program Brother MFC’s on the network with either
settings from an already programmed MFC or with data from the
Brother Network PC-FAX Address Book. See Chapter 6 of the
Software User’s Guide on the CD-ROM.
When Brother Network PC-FAX in used from a PC that has BRAdmin
Professional installed, an extra option appears in BRAdmin. By
selecting a networked machine in the BRAdmin main window and
right clicking it you will be presented with an extra option, Import
Auto Dial.
If import Auto Dial option does not appear, open the Brother
PC-FAX address book by selecting Start, Programs,
Brother, MFL-Pro Suite, PC-FAX Address Book. It is
necessary to run the address book utility to create an
address book file.
APPENDIX A - 8
When you select this option BRAdmin reads the telephone settings
from that machine (if there are any programmed) into Brother PCFAX Address Book.
Illustrated below is the Brother Address Book, on the left are OneTouch / Speed-Dial numbers read from the machine. On the right is
the Brother Address Book. It is now possible to allocate One-Touch
/ Speed-Dial numbers from the MFC into the Brother Address Book
and also use members of the Brother Address Book and send them
to the MFC. You can now make changes to the data in the Brother
Network PC-FAX Address Book and click OK.
This data is then stored in the Windows® Temp Folder and can be
used to update singular or multiple MFC’s on the network.
A - 9 APPENDIX
Highlight singular or multiple networked Brother MFC’s in the main
BRAdmin window by highlighting and pressing the shift key on your
keyboard. Right click the highlighted MFC’s and press Send Auto
Dial. The new data is then sent to all the highlighted MFC’s.
A dialog box is displayed showing the upload status of current MFC
and beneath this the whole progress is displayed if updating multiple
MFC’s.
When the process is finished a dialog box is displayed showing
which MFC’s on the network have been updated.
