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 control panel. For more
information see 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 printer control panel, the BRAdmin
Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP
server allocate an IP address to the DCP/MFC.
2 Refer to chapter 11 of this user guide to learn how to configure
the IP address on your DCP/MFC.
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
NC9100h_FM6.0
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 DCP/MFC control panel.
For setting the IP address of the Print/Fax server, refer to the
Quick Setup Guide or to chapter 11 of this user 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
NC9100h_FM6.0
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).
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 3
NC9100h_FM6.0
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 refer to the SCO UNIX Configuration 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 section 3-a.
SCO user's should also skip to section 3a (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
NC9100h_FM6.0
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.

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). CUPS typically uses PPD that are on Brother’s BR-Script
(Brother’s Postscript language emulation) ready machines. If you are
using a Brother printer that does not include the BR-Script emulation
you must use an alternative driver.

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
NC9100h_FM6.0
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).

■ 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
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
accept queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
enable queue
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
NC9100h_FM6.0
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

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:

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).

NC9100h_FM6.0
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, Windows®
2000/XP, LAN Server and Warp Server
Overview
Users of Windows® NT can print directly to a network-ready Brother
DCP/MFC using the TCP/IP protocol. Microsoft Windows® NT 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 control panel. For more
information see 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 DCP/MFC control panel, the
BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let
your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
3 Windows® NT users must install the Microsoft’s “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
NC9100h_FM6.0
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, 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.
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 3.5x/NT 4.0/2000/XP (TCP/IP)
Configuration
If you have not already done so, install the TCP/IP protocol onto your
Windows® NT system. This is done via the Network icon in the
Control Panel window of the Windows® NT system (the Control
Panel is in the Main window on NT 3.5x systems, or use the Start
button on 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.

9 Windows® 2000/XP will now contact the printer that you
specified. If you did not specify the correct IP address or name
then you will receive an error message.
10 Click the Finish button to complete the Wizard.
11 Now that you have configured the port, you must specify which
printer driver you wish to use. Select the appropriate driver from
the list of supported printers. If you are using a driver supplied
with the DCP/MFC on CD-ROM then select the Have Disk
option to browse to the CD-ROM. You can also click the
Windows Update button to connect directly to Microsoft's
support Web site to download printer drivers.
12 When the driver is installed, click the Next button.
13 Specify a name and click the Next button.

name for a printer that supports the IPP protocol is: http://
ip_address:631/ipp (where ip_address is the IP
address, NetBIOS name or DNS name of the Print/Fax server).
5 Click the Next button.
6 Windows® 2000/XP will now connect to the device that you
specified and determine the model number of the printer. If the
appropriate driver is installed on the PC, it will be used. If the
appropriate driver is not available you will be asked to insert the
driver diskette that was supplied with the printer.
7 Follow the Wizard through to the end of the installation.
8 Click the Finish button to complete the Wizard.
IPP printing from Windows® 95/98/Me Clients
It is also possible to send IPP print jobs from a Windows® 95/98/Me
client PC, provided that the PC has the ability to connect to and
access Windows® 2000/XP resources. Visit the Microsoft web site
(www.microsoft.com) and download the Windows® Internet Print
Services support software for Windows® systems.
Once installed, this software will allow you to connect to a Windows®
2000/XP system that is also running IIS and send print jobs using the
IPP protocol.

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 control panel. For more
information see 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 DCP/MFC control panel, the
BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let
your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 11 of this user guide to learn how to configure
the IP address on your DCP/MFC.
3 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
PEER TO PEER PRINTING 3 - 1
NC9100h_FM6.0
4 Windows® 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP
protocol via a Windows® 2000 computer providing that the
Microsoft Internet Print Services software is installed on the
client PC, IIS is installed and running on the Windows® 2000/XP
and that the client PC is using version 4 or later of Microsoft
Internet Explorer.
5 Brother printers are also compatible with HP JetDirect software,
this means that you can use HP utilities to manage and to print
to your Brother printer.
Driver Deployment Wizard
This installer includes the Windows driver and Brother network port
driver (LPR and NetBIOS).
If the administrator they installs the printer driver and port driver
using this software, he can save the file to the File server or send the
file in E-mail to users. Then, each user just clicks On that file to have
the printer driver, port driver, IP address, and so on, automatically
installed to their PC.
For more information, see the Driver Deployment Wizard User’s
Guide on the CD-ROM.
TCP/IP Printing
Our Peer to Peer printing software requires the TCP/IP protocol to be
installed on your Windows® peer-to-peer computers and an IP
Address has to be defined for the Print/Fax server. Refer to your
Windows® documentation for more information on how to configure
the TCP/IP protocol on your Windows® PC.
If you haven't already done so, configure the IP address of the DCP/
MFC, for more information on IP address configuration, refer to

How to Print using NetBIOS in
Windows® 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP,
LAN Server and OS/2 Warp Server
Overview
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 control panel. For more
information see 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 DCP/MFC control panel, the BRAdmin
Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP
server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 11 of this user guide to learn how to configure
the IP address on your printer.
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.
4 - 1 NETBIOS PEER TO PEER PRINTING
NC9100h_FM6.0
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 and Windows® NT4.0/2000/XP 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, 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 DCP/MFC. (See chapter 10.)
NETBIOS PEER TO PEER PRINTING 4 - 2
NC9100h_FM6.0
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/NT4.0, 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 control panel. For more
information see 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 DCP/MFC control panel, the BRAdmin
Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP
server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 11 of this user guide to learn how to configure
the IP address on your printer.
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®
NC9100h_FM6.0
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/
NT4.0/2000/XP Installation Wizard. It creates a virtual port on the
Windows® 95/98/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP 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/MeNT4.0/2000/
XP Print Manager to create a printer that uses this port along with a
standard Windows® 95/98/Me, NT4.0/2000/XP-compatible printer.
Any Windows® 95/98/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP 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
NC9100h_FM6.0
■ 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 [email protected], 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.

How to configure Novell NetWare Printing
Overview
Brother Print/Fax servers allow NetWare client PCs to print jobs on
the same printer as TCP/IP or other network protocol users. All
NetWare jobs are spooled through the Novell server and delivered to
the printer when it is available.
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 control panel. For more
information see 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 printer control panel, the BRAdmin
Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP
server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 The default password for Brother Print/Fax servers is access.
NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING 6 - 1
NC9100h_FM6.0
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
Print/Fax 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 as described later in
this chapter.
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 refer to the “Other Sources of Information” section at
the end of this chapter.
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.

version 1 with NetWare 4.x, only 3.1x and 95/98/Me options will
be available. NDPS version 2 for NetWare 4.x will support NT
drivers automatic download.

xxxxxx is the last 6 digits of the Ethernet address)
2 From a Macintosh network, the easiest way to change this name
is to assign an IP address to the printer and then use a Web
browser to change the name. Connect to the printer using a web
browser and then click on Network Configuration. Enter the
password (the default password is access) then select
Configure AppleTalk. Click on BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT,
then on Service Name. Enter the new name that you wish to
appear in Chooser. Then click on Submit.
3 System 8.6 or later supports TCP/IP printing.
4 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
5 To print a printer settings page, see chapter 23 of the

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 control panel.
For more information see 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
printer control panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility,
Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP server allocate
an IP address to the printer.
Macintosh Configuration (OS 8.6 - 9.2)
Your Brother Printer is compatible with the standard Apple LaserWriter
8 printer driver (earlier versions of the LaserWriter drivers may crash
or cause PostScript errors on large networks). If you do not have the
LaserWriter 8 driver you must install it. Consult your Macintosh
documentation for instructions on how to do this.
Before you try to use the Brother print server, you must first enable

Rendezvous Printing
Rendezvous lets you create an instant network of computers and
smart devices just by connecting them to each other.
Rendezvous support allows a Rendezvous ready printer to
automatically configure itself to work in a OS X Rendezvous system.
You do not need to manually configure any IP address or network
settings within the printer as the printer will automatically configure
itself.
Refer to the information below if you wish to learn how to configure
a Brother DCP/MFC into a Mac OS X Rendezvous environment.
Please note Brother recommends that you use version OS X 10.2.2
or later.
