A wireless network connection is supported only between the Brother machine and an access point for PC’s running Windows® XP Professional
x64 Edition.
To use the Brother machine through a network, you need to configure the print server, and set up the
computers you use.
For Wireless Users:
To achieve optimum results with normal every day document printing, place the Brother machine as close to
the network access point (router) as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between the
two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your
documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as photos on glossy paper or multi-page documents with
mixed text and large graphics, you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer,
or USB for the fastest throughput speed.

Introduction
Wireless network connection example
1
1
Connected to a wireless capable computer with an access point in the network
(Infrastructure mode)
1
This type of network has a central access point at the heart of the network. The access point can also act as
a bridge or a gateway to a wired network. When the Brother wireless machine (your machine) is part of this
network, it receives all print jobs via an access point.
Connected to a wireless capable computer without an access point in the network (Ad-hoc
mode)
1
This type of network does not have a central access point. Each wireless client communicates directly with
each other. When the Brother wireless machine (your machine) is part of this network, it receives all print jobs
directly from the computer sending the print data.
6
Introduction
An access point is in the network, but the computer is not wireless capable
1
1
This type of network has a central access point at the heart of the network. The access point is connected to
a computer which is not wireless capable with an Ethenet cable. When the Brother wireless machine (your
machine) is a part of this network, it receives all print jobs via an access point.
Protocols
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.
DHCP/BOOTP/RARP
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.
7
Introduction
LPR/LPD
1
1
Commonly used printing protocols on a TCP/IP network.
Port9100

Configuring your machine for a network
with an Ethernet cable connection
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 70.
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
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network (typically a UNIX®/Linux or Windows® 2000/XP
network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from that server.
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 110, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 110 and Using RARP to configure
the IP address on page 111.
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 111.
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. For
information on how to change the IP address, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 11.
9
Configuring your machine for a network with an Ethernet cable connection
Subnet mask
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
„ Example: PC1 can talk to PC2
2
• PC1
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
• PC2
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.

Wireless network connection example
3
Connected to a wireless capable computer with an access point in the network
(Infrastructure mode)
3
This type of network has a central access point at the heart of the network. The access point can also act as
a bridge or a gateway to a wired network. When the Brother wireless machine (your machine) is part of this
network, it receives all print jobs via an access point.
15
Configuring your machine for a wireless network
Connected to a wireless capable computer without an access point in the network (Ad-hoc
mode)
3
This type of network does not have a central access point. Each wireless client communicates directly with
each other. When the Brother wireless machine (your machine) is part of this network, it receives all print jobs
directly from the computer sending the print data.
3
An access point is in the network, but the computer is not wireless capable
3
This type of network has a central access point at the heart of the network. The access point is connected to
a computer which is not wireless capable with the Ethenet cable. When the Brother wireless machine (your
machine) is a part of this network, it receives all print jobs via an access point.
16

The setup process will be different depending on your network environment
Configuration using SecureEasySetup™.
3
If your wireless access point(A) supports SecureEasySetup™, you do not need to use a computer to
configure the printer. The access point (router) and your machine can automatically negotiate using the
SecureEasySetup™ procedure.
3
A
Configuration temporarily using a network cable
3
If there is an Ethernet Hub or Router in the same network as the wireless access point of your machine, you
can temporarily connect the Hub or Router to the machine using an Ethernet cable(B), this is an easy way to
configure the machine. You can then remotely configure the machine from a computer on the network.
17
Configuring your machine for a wireless network

If your computer has wireless capability, you will need to change the wireless settings of the computer to Adhoc mode so you can directly connect and configure the machine.
3
Wireless network terms and concepts
3
When you configure the wireless network machine, you must ensure that your wireless network machine is
configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of main terms
and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network machine.
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
3
You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
SSID
3
Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
(Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
Channels
3
Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. When configuring your
Brother device to work in a wireless network, you must set it to the channel that is used on the wireless
network that you are connecting to. There are up to 14 different channels that can be used when using a
wireless network. However, in many countries the number of channels available are restricted. For further
information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 117.
Authentication and encryption
3
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication
(how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device,
it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these
18
Configuring your machine for a wireless network
options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your
Brother wireless device supports.
Authentication methods
3
The Brother machine supports the following methods:
„ Open system
3
Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
„ Shared key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
The Brother machine uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
„ WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK
Enables a Wi-Fi® Protected Access Pre-shared key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK), which enables the Brother
wireless machine to associate with access points using TKIP for WPA-PSK or AES for WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK encryption (WPA-Personal).
Encryption methods
3
Encryption is used to secure the data that is sent over the wireless network. The Brother machine supports
the following encryption methods:
„ None
No encryption method is used.
„ WEP
By using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the data is transmitted and received with a secure key.
„ TKIP
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) provides per-packet key mixing a message integrity check and rekeying mechanism.
„ AES
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is Wi-Fi® authorized strong encryption standard.
19
Configuring your machine for a wireless network
Network key
3
There are some rules for each security method:
„ Open system/Shared key with WEP
This key is a 64-bit or 128-bit value that must be entered in an ASCII or HEXADECIMAL format.
64 (40) bit ASCII:
Uses 5 text characters.e.g. “WLLAN” (this is case sensitive).
64 (40) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data.e.g. “71f2234aba”
128 (104) bit ASCII:
Uses 13 text characters.e.g. “Wirelesscomms” (this is case
sensitive)
128 (104) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal datae.g.
“71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa2ba”
3
„ WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and TKIP or AES
Uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that is more than 7 and less than 64 characters in length.

Before using your Brother product in a network environment, you need to configure the correct TCP/IP
settings. For more information, see Configuring your machine for a network with an Ethernet cable
connection on page 9 or Configuring your machine for a wireless network on page 15.
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 select LAN. Proceed to the menu selection you wish to
configure. See Function table and default factory settings on page 119.
Please note that the machine is supplied with the BRAdmin Professional Windows® software 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 for wired connection or Changing the print server
settings on page 23 for wireless connection.

6
If you connect the machine with the Ethernet cable to your network, use the TCP/IP (Wired) menu
selections. If you connect the machine to the wireless Ethernet network, use the TCP/IP (WLAN) menu
selections.
This menu has nine sections: BOOT Method, IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Node Name,
WINS Config, WINS Server, DNS Server and APIPA.

Auto mode
6
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 111. After it is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the
network for a server.
Static mode
6
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
6
RARP mode
6
The Brother print server IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) service 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 (or BRW_310107 for a wireless network)
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.
BOOTP mode
6
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
Note
Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”.
71
Control panel setup
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.)
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.
6
As with rarp, the print server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the printer is powered on.
DHCP mode
6
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 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.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT
METHOD to static, 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 or the BRAdmin Professional
utility.
IP Address
6
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.

to the wireless network using a network cable, it is recommended you temporarily connect the machine to
your access point, hub or router using a network cable. You will also need to change your machine’s network
setting to wired LAN temporarily. Your machine’s network setting will be changed to wireless LAN
automatically or during the course of the setup.

Wireless connection problem
11
The wireless network connection is sometimes disabled.
11
The wireless network connection status is affected by the environment where the Brother printer and other
wireless devices are located. The following conditions may cause connection problems:
„ A concrete or metal framed wall is located between the Brother machine and the access point.
„ Electric appliances such as televisions, computer appliances, microwave ovens, intercoms,
mobile/cellular phones and the battery chargers and AC power adapters are installed close to your
network.
„ A broadcast station or high-tension wire is located close to your network.
„ A nearby fluorescent light is being switched ON or OFF.

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)
BRN_xxxxxx_P1
TCP/IP binary
Where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for example, BRN_310107_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 11.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
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
BRAdmin Professional utility.
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”.
110
Appendix A
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.)
BRN_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN_310107: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.
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
BRN_310107
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.
111
Appendix A
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 77.
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
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the print server and ipaddress is the
IP address of the print server. For example:
„ 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
„ 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
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).
To configure the print server and to verify the connection, enter the following command ping ipaddress
where ipaddress is the IP address of the print server. For example, ping 192.189.207.2.
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.
112
Appendix A
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.
