software or contact the software manufacturer.
Using the Brother printer driver
1
A printer driver translates the data from your application, and using a page description language, converts it
into a format that can be understood by the printer/multi-function device.
You will find appropriate drivers on the CD-ROM supplied with the machine. Install those drivers by following
the steps in the Quick Setup Guide. You can also download the latest drivers from the Brother Solutions
Center at:
http://solutions.brother.com/

Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during computer printing.
However, when the machine is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the computer printing operation,
and then continues printing when copying or fax receiving has finished.

Two scanner drivers are installed. A TWAIN compliant scanner driver (See Scanning a document using the
TWAIN driver on page 38) and a Windows® Imaging Acquisition (WIA) driver (See Scanning a document
using the WIA driver on page 47).
Windows® XP/Windows Vista®/Windows ® 7 users can select either driver when scanning documents.
NOTE
• For Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE, see Using Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE on page 55.
• If your computer is protected by a firewall and is unable to network scan, you may need to configure the
firewall settings to allow communication through port number 54925 and 137. If you are using Windows®
Firewall and you installed MFL-Pro Suite from the CD-ROM, the necessary Firewall settings have already
been made. For more information, see Firewall settings (For Network users) on page 116.
Scanning a document using the TWAIN driver
2
The Brother MFL-Pro Suite software includes a TWAIN compliant scanner driver. TWAIN drivers meet the
standard universal protocol for communicating between scanners and applications. This means that you can
not only scan images directly into the PaperPort™ 12SE viewer that Brother included with your machine, but
you can also scan images directly into hundreds of other software applications that support TWAIN scanning.
These applications include popular programs like Adobe® Photoshop®, CorelDRAW® and many more.

Adjust the setting (-50 to 50) to get the best image. The default value is 0, representing an average and is
usually suitable for most images.
You can set the Brightness level by dragging the slider to the right or left to lighten or darken the image. You
can also enter a value in the box to set the level.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower Brightness level and scan the document again. If the image is
too dark, set a higher Brightness level and scan the document again.
NOTE
The Brightness setting is only available when setting the Scan Type to Black & White,
Gray (Error Diffusion), True Gray or 24bit Color.
Contrast
2
You can increase or decrease the contrast level by moving the slider to the right or left. An increase
emphasizes dark and light areas of the image, while a decrease reveals more details in gray areas. You can
also enter a value in the box to set the Contrast.
NOTE
The Contrast setting is only available when setting the Scan Type to Gray (Error Diffusion),
True Grayor 24bit Color.
When scanning photographs or other images for use in a word processor or other graphics application, try
different settings for the Resolution, Scan Type, Brightness and Contrast to see which setting best suits
your needs.

or greater), Windows Vista® (SP2 or higher) and Windows ® 7 only.
2
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE for Brother is a document management application. You can use PaperPort™
12SE to view scanned documents.
PaperPort™ 12SE has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use filing system that will help you organize your graphics
and text documents. It allows you to mix or ‘stack’ documents of different formats for printing, faxing or filing.
This section only introduces the basic functions of the software. For more details, see the Nuance™
PaperPort™ 12SE Getting Started Guide. To view the complete Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE
Getting Started Guide, choose the Help tab from the ribbon and click Getting Started Guide. When you
install MFL-Pro Suite, Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE for Brother is installed automatically. You can access
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE through the Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE program group located in
/All Programs/Nuance PaperPort 12 on your computer.
Viewing items
2
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE gives several ways to view items:
Desktop displays the item in the chosen folder with a thumbnail (a small graphic that shows each item in a
desktop or folder) or an icon.
You can see both PaperPort™ 12SE items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort™ 12SE items (files created using
other applications).
All graphical files (PaperPort™ 12SE's *.max and other files) will be displayed and include an icon that
indicates the application that the specific file type is associated or created with. Non-graphical files are
indicated by a small rectangular thumbnail and are not displayed as actual images.
ImageView displays a close-up of a single page. You can open a PaperPort™ 12SE item by clicking the
Open with Image View button from the Desktop tab on the ribbon.
55
Scanning
As long as you have the appropriate application on your computer to display it, you can also open a nonPaperPort™ 12SE item by double-clicking it.
2
Organizing your items in folders
2
PaperPort™ 12SE has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your items. The filing system consists of
folders and items that you choose to view in Desktop. An item can be a PaperPort™ 12SE item or a nonPaperPort™ 12SE item:
 Folders are arranged in a ‘tree’ structure in the Folder View. You use this section to choose folders and
view their items in Desktop.
 You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder. When the folder is highlighted, release the mouse
button and the item is stored in that folder.
 Folders can be ‘nested’—that is, stored in other folders.
 When you double-click a folder, its contents (both PaperPort™ 12SE MAX files and non PaperPort™
12SE files) appear in Desktop.
 You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders and items shown in Desktop.
Quick links to other applications
2
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE automatically recognizes many other applications on your computer and
creates a ‘working link’ to them.
The bar at the bottom of the PaperPort™ 12SE desktop shows which programs you can use with PaperPort™
12SE.
To send an item from PaperPort™ 12SE to another program, simply drag and drop the item from the
PaperPort™ 12SE desktop to the program icon on the bar. PaperPort™ 12SE automatically converts the item
to the preferred format.
56
Scanning
If PaperPort™ 12SE does not automatically recognize one of the applications on your computer, you can
manually create a link using the New Link button from the Tools tab on the ribbon.
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE lets you convert image text into text you can edit
2
Nuance™ PaperPort™ 12SE can quickly convert a text document image into text that you can edit with a
word processing application.
PaperPort™ 12SE uses the optical character recognition software (OCR), which comes with PaperPort™
12SE. PaperPort™ 12SE can use your preferred OCR application if it is already on your computer. You can
convert the entire item, or by using the Copy Text button from the Items tab on the ribbon, you can choose
only a portion of the text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort™ 12SE’s built-in OCR application, or you
can use your own OCR application.
Importing items from other applications
2
As well as scanning items, you can import items into PaperPort™ 12SE in a variety of ways and convert them
to PaperPort™ 12SE (MAX) files in several different ways:
 Print to the Desktop from another application, such as Microsoft® Word.
 Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows® Bitmap (BMP) or Tagged Image File Format
(TIFF).
Exporting items into other formats
2
You can export or save PaperPort™ 12SE items in several popular file formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF
or PDF.

PC-FAX receiving
5
The Brother PC-FAX Receive software lets you view and store faxes on your computer. It is automatically
installed when you install the MFL-Pro Suite and works on locally or network connected machines.
When enabled, your machine will receive faxes in its memory. Once it has received the fax, it will
automatically be sent to your computer.
If you turn your computer off, your machine will continue to receive and store your faxes in its memory. The
machine's Touch Panel will display the number of stored faxes received.
When you switch your computer on, the PC-FAX Receive software automatically transfers your faxes to your
computer.
5
To enable the PC-FAX Receive software, do the following:
 Before you use the PC-FAX Receive function, you must choose PC-FAX Receive from the menu on
the machine.
 Run the Brother PC-FAX Receive software on your computer. (We recommend you select the Add to

 Black & White
Use for text or line art images.
 Gray (Error Diffusion)
Use for photographic images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray images
without using true gray dots. Black dots are put in a specific pattern to give the gray appearance.)
 True Gray
Use for photographic images or graphics. This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades of
gray.
 256 Color
Uses up to 256 colors to scan the image.
 24bit Color
Uses up to 16.8 million colors to scan the image.
Although using 24bit Color creates an image with the most accurate color reproduction, the image file size
will be about three times larger than a file created using the 256 Color option. It requires the most memory
and has the longest transfer time.

When you choose Scan to FTP, you can scan a black and white or color document directly to an FTP server
on your local network, or on the internet.
The details required to use Scan to FTP can be entered by using Web Based Management to pre-configure
and store the details in an FTP Profile.
NOTE
• Scan to FTP is available when FTP profiles are configured by using Web Based Management.
• We recommend Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 8.0/9.0 for Windows® and Safari 5.0 for Macintosh. Please
also make sure that JavaScript and Cookies are always enabled in whichever browser you use. If a
different web browser is used, make sure it is compatible with HTTP 1.0 and HTTP 1.1.
To use Web Based Management, type http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP
address of your machine) into your browser and then you can configure or change the settings in
