Configuring Your Machine for a Wireless
Network
3
Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend following one of the setup methods
outlined in the Quick Setup Guide.
For additional wireless configuration methods, read this chapter for more information about how to configure
the wireless network settings. For information on TCP/IP settings, see Change Your Machine’s Network
Settings on page 3.
NOTE
• To achieve optimum results with everyday document scanning, place the Brother machine as close to the
WLAN 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 scanning large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large
graphics, you may want to consider using a USB cable for a faster throughput speed.
• Before configuring wireless settings, you need to know your Network name (SSID) and Network Key.

 By changing the SMTP port number to a specific number that your ISP is using for the SMTP server
(for example, port 587), you can send an email via the SMTP server.
 If you can use both POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH, we recommend choosing SMTP-AUTH.
 If you choose POP before SMTP for the SMTP Server Authentication Method, you must configure the
POP3 settings. You can also use the APOP method if needed.
Sending an Email Securely Using SSL/TLS
6
This machine supports SSL/TLS to send an email via an email server that requires secure SSL/TLS
communication. To send email via an email server that is using SSL/TLS communication, you must configure
SMTP over SSL/TLS or POP3 over SSL/TLS correctly.
Verifying Server Certificate
 If you choose SSL or TLS for SMTP over SSL/TLS or POP3 over SSL/TLS, the Verify Server Certificate
check box will be automatically selected to verify the Server Certificate.
• The server certificate is verified during the connection attempt with the server when sending email.
• If you do not need to verify the Server Certificate, clear the Verify Server Certificate check box.
Port Number
 If you choose SSL or TLS, the SMTP Port or POP3 Port value will be changed to match the protocol.
If you want to change the port number manually, type the port number after you choose
SMTP over SSL/TLS or POP3 over SSL/TLS.
 You must configure the POP3/SMTP communication method to match the email server. For details about
the email server settings, contact your network administrator or ISP (Internet Service Provider).
In most cases, the secured webmail services require the following settings:
(SMTP)
SMTP Port: 587
SMTP Server Authentication Method: SMTP-AUTH
SMTP over SSL/TLS: TLS
(POP3)
POP3 Port: 995
POP3 over SSL/TLS: SSL

The multiple certificate feature allows you to use Web Based Management to manage each certificate
installed on your machine. In Web Based Management, navigate to the CA Certificate screen to view
certificate content, delete, or export your certificates.
You can store up to three CA certificates to use SMTP over SSL and/or POP3 over SSL.
We recommend storing one less certificate than allowed, reserving an empty spot in case of certificate
expiration. When a certificate expires, import a new certificate into the reserved spot, and then delete the
expired certificate. This ensures that you avoid configuration failure.
NOTE
When you use SSL for SMTP communications, you do not have to choose a certificate. The necessary
certificate will be chosen automatically.
