TCP/IP
TCP/IP
1 Switch or Router
2 Network printer (your machine)
„ In a smaller network of 2 or 3 computers, we recommend the Peer-to-Peer printing method as it is easier
to configure than the Network Shared Printing method described on the following page. See Network
Shared Printing on page 5.
„ Each computer must use the TCP/IP Protocol.
„ The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration.
„ If you are using routers, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother
machine.
„ The Brother machine can also communicate with Macintosh®. (TCP/IP compatible operating systems)
4
Introduction
Network Shared Printing
1
In a Network Shared environment, each computer sends data via a centrally controlled computer. This type
of computer is often called a “Server” or a “Print Server”. Its job is to control the printing of all print jobs.
1 Client computer
2 Also known as “Server” or “Print Server”
3 TCP/IP or USB (where available)
4 Printer (your machine)
„ In a larger network, we recommend a Network Shared printing environment.
„ The “Server” or the “Print Server” must use the TCP/IP Print Protocol.
„ The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration unless the machine is
connected via the USB interface at the server.

Introduction
Protocols
1
1
TCP/IP protocols and functions
1
Protocols are the standardized sets of rules for transmitting data on a network. Protocols allow users to gain
access to network connected resources.
The print server used on this Brother product supports the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol) protocols.
TCP/IP is the most popular set of protocols used for communication such as Internet and E-mail. This protocol
can be used in almost all operating systems such as Windows®, Macintosh® and Linux.
The following TCP/IP protocols are available on this Brother product.
Note
• You can configure the protocol settings by using the HTTP (web browser). See Using Web Based
Management (web browser) to change the print/scan settings on page 14.
• For the protocols of security features, see Security protocols on page 45.

1
By using the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, the IP address can be automatically configured.
Note
To use the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, please contact your network administrator.
APIPA
1
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the control panel of the machine or the BRAdmin software)
or automatically (using a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server), the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA)
protocol will automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255.
DNS client
1
The Brother print server supports the Domain Name Service (DNS) client function. This function allows the
print server to communicate with other devices by using its DNS name.
LPR/LPD
1
Commonly used printing protocols on a TCP/IP network.
SMTP client
1
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) client is used to send E-mails via Internet or Intranet.
Port9100
1
Another commonly used printing protocol on a TCP/IP network.
6
Introduction
IPP
1
1
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP Version 1.0) allows you to print documents directly to any accessible
printer via the internet.
mDNS
1
mDNS allows the Brother print server to automatically configure itself to work in a Mac OS® X Simple Network
Configured system. (Mac OS® X 10.2.4 or greater).
Telnet
1
The Brother print server supports Telnet server for command line configuration.
SNMP
1
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network devices including computers,
routers and Brother network ready machines in a TCP/IP network.
Web server (HTTP)
1
The Brother print server is equipped with a built in web server that allows you to monitor its status or change
some of its configuration settings.
Note
We recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0® (or higher) or Firefox® 1.0 (or higher) for Windows® and
Safari™ 1.0 for Macintosh®. Please also make sure that JavaScript and Cookies are always enabled in
whichever browser you use. We recommend you upgrade to Safari™ 1.2 or higher to enable JavaScript.
If a different web browser is used, make sure it is compatible with HTTP 1.0 and HTTP 1.1.

Configuring your network printer
2
Overview
2
2
Before you can use your Brother machine on your network, you need to install the Brother software and also
configure the appropriate TCP/IP network settings on the machine itself. To do this, we recommend that you
use the automatic installer on the Brother CD-ROM as this will guide you through the software and network
installation.
If you do not wish to use the automatic installer, or you do not understand some of the terms used by the
automatic installer, refer to the remainder of this chapter for more information.
Note
If you do not wish to, or are unable to use the automatic installer or any of Brother’s software tools, you
can also use the machine’s control panel to change network settings. For more information, see Control
panel setup on page 16.
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
2
To use the machine in a networked TCP/IP environment, you need to configure its IP address and subnet
mask. The IP address you assign to the print server must be on the same logical network as your host
computers. If it is not, you must properly configure the subnet mask and the gateway address.
IP address
2
An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each device connected to a network. An IP address
consists of four numbers separated by dots. Each number is between 0 and 255.
„ Example: In a small network, you would normally change the final number.
192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3
How the IP address is assigned to your print server:
2
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network (typically a UNIX®/Linux or Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista™, Windows Server® 2003 network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may be the router.
For more information on DHCP, BOOTP and RARP, see Using DHCP to configure the IP
address on page 77, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 78 and Using RARP to configure the
IP address on page 79.
8
Configuring your network printer
If you do not have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server, the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol will
automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. For more information on
APIPA, see Using APIPA to configure the IP address on page 79.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. However, you can
easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network. For information
on how to change the IP address, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 10.
Subnet mask
2
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
„ Example: Computer1 can talk to Computer 2
• Computer 1
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
• Computer 2
IP Address: 192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Note
0 denotes that there is no limit to communication at this part of the address.
In the above example, we can communicate with anything that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.x.
Gateway (and router)
2
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the
network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a
destination is located at an external network, the router transmits data to the external network. If your network
communicates with other networks, you may need to configure the Gateway IP address. If you do not know
the Gateway IP address then contact your Network Administrator.

In this chapter, you will learn how to configure the network settings using the control panel, located on the
front of the machine.
The LAN menu selections of the control panel allow you to set up the Brother machine for your network
configuration. Press Menu, then press a or b to choose LAN. Proceed to the menu selection you wish to
configure. See Function table and default factory settings on page 86.
Please note that the machine is supplied with the BRAdmin Light utility and Remote Setup applications for
Windows® and Macintosh®, which also can be used to configure many aspects of the network. See Changing
the print server settings on page 13.
TCP/IP
3
This menu has ten sections: BOOT Method, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Node Name,
WINS Config, WINS Server, DNS Server, APIPA and IPv6.
BOOT Method
3
This selection controls how the machine obtains the IP address for itself. The default setting is Auto.
Note
• If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT
Method to Static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from
trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT Method, use the machine’s
control panel, BRAdmin Professional utility, Remote Setup or Web Based Management (web browser).
• You cannot change the BOOT method using the BRAdmin Light utility that was supplied on the CD-ROM
with your Brother product. Please use the latest BRAdmin Professional utility that is available as a
download from http://solutions.brother.com. This utility is only available for Windows® users.

Auto mode
3
In this mode, the machine will scan the network for a DHCP server, if it can find one, and if the DHCP server
is configured to allocate an IP address to the machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will
be used. If no DHCP server is available, then the machine will scan for a BOOTP server. If a BOOTP server
is available, and it is configured correctly, the machine will take its IP address from the BOOTP server. If a
BOOTP server is not available, the machine will scan for a RARP server. If a RARP server also does not
answer, the IP Address is scanned through APIPA facility, see Using APIPA to configure the IP
address on page 79. After it is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the
network for a server.
Static mode
3
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
RARP mode
3
The Brother print server IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) service on your host
computer. For more information on RARP, see Using RARP to configure the IP address on page 79. 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 BRN310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the print server and the second entry is the name of the print
server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).
If the rarp daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd, rarpd
-a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for additional
information). To verify that the rarp daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX® based system, type the following
command:
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX® based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Brother print server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when it is powered on.

Control panel setup
BOOTP mode
3
BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. For more information on BOOTP, see Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 78. 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:
3
#bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i
Note
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 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:
BRN310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN310107: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 server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the printer is powered on.
DHCP mode
3
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network (typically a UNIX®, Windows® 2000/XP, Windows
Vista™ network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from a DHCP server and register its
name with any RFC 1001 and 1002 compliant dynamic name services.

This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have selected a BOOT Method of Static, enter
the IP address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). If you have selected a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its IP
address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your machine will probably be
incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your
network administrator for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.

Overview
9
In today’s world there are many security threats to your network and the data that travels over it. Your Brother
machine employs some of the latest network security and encryption protocols available today. These
network features can be integrated into your overall network security plan to help protect your data and
prevent unauthorized access to the machine. This chapter explains the various security protocols supported
and how to configure them.
Security terms
9
„ CA (Certificate Authority)
A CA is an entity that issues digital certificates (especially X.509 certificates) and vouches for the binding
between the data items in a certificate.
„ CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
A CSR is a message sent from an applicant to a CA in order to apply for issue of a certificate. The CSR
contains information identifying the applicant, the public key generated by the applicant and the digital
signature of the applicant.
„ Certificate
A Certificate is the information that binds together a public key with an identity. The certificate can be used
to verify that a public key belongs to an individual. The format is defined by the x.509 standard.
„ Digital signature
A Digital signature is a value computed with a cryptographic algorithm and appended to a data object in
such a way that any recipient of the data can use the signature to verify the data's origin and integrity.
„ Public key cryptosystem
A Public key cryptosystem is a modern branch of cryptography in which the algorithms employ a pair of
keys (a public key and a private key) and use a different component of the pair for different steps of the
algorithm.
„ Shared key cryptosystem
A Shared key cryptosystem is a branch of cryptography involving algorithms that use the same key for two
different steps of the algorithm (such as encryption and decryption).

Creating and installing a certificate
9
The Brother print server allows you to use SSL/TLS communication by configuring a certificate and
corresponding private key. This print server supports two certification methods. A self-signed certificate and
a certificate that is issued by a CA (Certificate Authority).
„ Using self-signed certificate
This print server issues its own certificate. Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS
communication without having a certificate from a CA. See Creating and installing a self-signed
certificate on page 54.
„ Using a certificate from a CA
There are two methods for installing a certificate from a CA. If you already have a CA or if you want to use
a certificate from an outside trusted CA:
• When using a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from this print server. See Creating CSR and installing
a certificate on page 66.
• When importing a certificate and a private key. See Import and export the certificate and private
key on page 68.
Note
• If you are going to use SSL/TLS communication, we recommend that you contact your system
administrator before using.
9
• This print server stores only one pair of a certificate and a private key that you installed or previously
imported. This printer overwrites the certificate and the private key if you install a new one.
• When you reset the print server back to its default factory settings, the certificate and the private key that
are installed will be deleted. If you want to keep the same certificate and the private key after resetting the
print server, export them before resetting and re-install them. See How to export the certificate and private
key on page 69.
This feature can be configured using Web Based Management (web browser) only. Follow these steps to
access the configure certificate page using Web Based Management.

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

Using services
A
A service is a resource that can be accessed by computers that wish to print to the Brother print server. The
Brother print server provides the following predefined services (do a SHOW SERVICE command in the
Brother print server remote console to see a list of available services): Enter HELP at the command prompt
for a list of supported commands.
Service (Example)
Definition
BINARY_P1
TCP/IP binary, NetBIOS service
TEXT_P1
TCP/IP text service (adds carriage return after each line feed)
PCL_P1
PCL® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PCL® mode)
BRNxxxxxx_P1
TCP/IP binary
BRNxxxxxx_P1_AT
PostScript® service for Macintosh®
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript® service (switches PJL-compatible printer to PostScript® mode)
Where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for example, BRN310107_P1).
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
administrators)
A
For information on how to configure your machine for a network using the BRAdmin Professional utility, see
Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 10.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
A
A
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT
Method to static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying
to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT Method, use the machine’s
control panel, BRAdmin Professional utility, Remote Setup or Web Based Management (web browser).
77
Appendix A
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address
A
BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running
on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service; type man
bootpd or refer to your system documentation for information). BOOTP is usually started up via the
/etc/inetd.conf file, so you may need to enable it by removing the “#” in front of the bootp entry in that
file. For example, a typical bootp entry in the /etc/inetd.conf file would be:
#bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i
Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”.
Note
In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already
enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type
(1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the print server.
Unfortunately, the exact format for doing this is not standardized, so you will need to refer to your system
documentation to determine how to enter this information (many UNIX® systems also have template
examples in the bootptab file that you can use for reference). Some examples of typical /etc/bootptab
entries include: (“BRN” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
BRN310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.168.1.2:
Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included
a download filename in the configuration file. if this is the case, simply create a null file on the host and specify
the name of this file and its path in the configuration file.
As with rarp, the print server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the printer is powered on.
78
A
Appendix A
Using RARP to configure the IP address
A
The Brother print server’s IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) facility on your host
computer. This is done by editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an
entry similar to the following: (“BRN” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
00:80:77:31:01:07
BRN310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the print server and the second entry is the name of the print
server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).
If the rarp daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd,
rarpd -a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for
additional information). To verify that the rarp daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX® based system, type
the following command:
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX®-based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Brother print server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when the printer is powered on.
Using APIPA to configure the IP address
A
The Brother print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, DHCP
clients automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server is not available. The
device chooses it's own IP address in the range 169.254.1.0 through to 169.254.254.255. The subnet mask
is automatically set to 255.255.0.0 and the gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0.
By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled. If you want to disable the APIPA protocol, you can disable it using
control panel of the machine. For more information, see APIPA on page 23.
A
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.
Using ARP to configure the IP address
A
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can
also use the ARP command. The ARP command is available on Windows® systems that have TCP/IP
installed as well as UNIX® systems. To use arp enter the following command at the command prompt:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
ping ipaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the print server and ipaddress is the
IP address of the print server. For example:
79
Appendix A
„ Windows® systems
Windows® systems require the dash “-” character between each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
ping 192.168.1.2
„ UNIX®/Linux systems
Typically, UNIX® and Linux systems require the colon “:” character between each digit of the Ethernet
address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
ping 192.168.1.2
Note
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the print server and
operating system) to use the arp -s command.
If there is a router, you may use BOOTP or other methods described in this chapter to enter the IP
address.If your Administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP or
RARP your Brother print server can receive an IP address from any one of these IP address allocation
systems. In which case, you will not need to use the ARP command. The ARP command only works once.
For security reasons, once you have successfully configured the IP address of a Brother print server using
the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The print server will
ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use a web browser, Telnet
(using the SET IP ADDRESS command) or factory reset the print server (which will then allow you to use
the ARP command again).
A
80
Appendix A
Using the Telnet console to configure the IP address
A
You can also use the Telnet command to change the IP address.
Telnet is an effective method to change the machine’s IP address. But a valid IP address must already be
programmed into print server.
Type Telnet ipaddress at the command prompt of the system prompt, where ipaddress is the IP address of
the print server. When you are connected, push the Return or Enter key to get the “#” prompt. Enter a
password if you have set it.
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to this prompt.
You will then get the Local> prompt. Type SET IP ADDRESS ipaddress, where ipaddress is the
desired IP address you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.3
You will now need to set the subnet mask by typing SET IP SUBNET subnet mask, where subnet mask
is the desired subnet mask you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for
the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default subnet masks:
255.0.0.0 for class A networks
255.255.0.0 for class B networks
255.255.255.0 for class C networks
The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this
group ranges from 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.168.1.4).
If you have a gateway (router), enter its address with the command SET IP ROUTER routeraddress,
where routeraddress is the desired IP address of the gateway you wish to assign to the print server. For
example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.168.1.4
Type SET IP METHOD STATIC to set the method of IP access configuration to static.
To verify that you have entered the IP information correctly, type SHOW IP.
Type EXIT or Ctrl-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type “D”) to end the remote console session.

Note
• You must configure the IP address on your machine before you proceed with this section. If you have not
configured the IP address, see Configuring your network printer on page 8 first.
• Verify the host computer and print server are either on the same subnet, or that the router is properly
configured to pass data between the two devices.
• Before installation, if you are using personal Firewall software (e.g. Windows Firewall), disable it. Once
you are sure that you can print, re-start your personal Firewall software.
