Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend you to follow the steps in the Quick Setup
Guide using Brother installer application on the CD-ROM which we have provided with the machine. By using
this method, you can easily connect your machine to your wireless network.
Please read this chapter for additional methods on how to configure the wireless network settings. For
information on TCP/IP settings, see How to change your machine’s network settings (IP address, Subnet
mask and Gateway) on page 3.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, 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 printing large files, such as 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.
• Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one connection
method can be used at a time.
• Before configuring wireless settings, you will need to know your Network name: (SSID, ESSID) and
Network Key. If you are using an enterprise wireless network you also need to know the User ID
and Password.

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 how to configure them.
You can configure following security features:
 Sending an E-mail securely (See Sending an E-mail securely on page 33.)
 Secure Management using BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) (See Secure Management using
BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) on page 35.)
Note
We recommend to disable the FTP and TFTP protocols. Accessing the machine using these protocols is
not secure. (For how to configure the protocol settings, see How to configure the machine settings using
Web Based Management (web browser) on page 31.)

Follow the instructions on-screen if you want to test with the current settings.
Sending an E-mail with user authentication
7
This machine supports POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH methods to send an E-mail via an E-mail server
that requires a user authentication. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from accessing the E-mail
server. You can use Web Based Management, BRAdmin Professional 3 and Web BRAdmin to configure
these settings. You can use POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH methods for E-mail Notification and E-mail
reports.
E-mail server settings
You need to match the settings of SMTP authentication method with the method used by your E-mail server.
Contact your network administrator or your ISP (Internet Service Provider) about the E-mail server
configuration.
You will also need to check SMTP-AUTH of SMTP Server Authentication Method to enable the SMTP
server authentication.
33
Security features
SMTP settings
 You can change the SMTP port number using Web Based Management. This is useful if your ISP (Internet
Service Provider) implements the “Outbound Port 25 Blocking (OP25B)” service.
 By changing the SMTP port number to a specific number which your ISP is using for the SMTP server (for
example, port 587), you would then be able to send an E-mail 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 need to configure the
POP3 settings. You can also use the APOP method if needed.

Security features
Secure Management using BRAdmin Professional 3
(Windows®)
7
To use the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility securely, you need to follow the
points below
7
 We strongly recommend to use the latest version of the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility or Web BRAdmin
that are available as a download from http://solutions.brother.com/. If you use an older version of
BRAdmin 1 to manage your brother machines the user authentication will not be secure.
 If you want to avoid access to your machine from older versions of BRAdmin 1, you need to disable the
access from older versions of BRAdmin 1 from Advanced Setting of SNMP on Configure Protocol page
using Web Based Management (web browser). (See How to configure the machine settings using Web
Based Management (web browser) on page 31.)
 If you are managing a mixed group of older print servers 2 and the new print servers with BRAdmin
Professional 3, we recommend using a different password in each group. This will ensure security is
maintained on the new print servers.

Types of network connections and protocols
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 the Brother machine supports the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol) protocol.
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®, Windows Server®, Mac OS X and Linux ®.
The following TCP/IP protocols are available on the Brother machine.
Note
• You can configure the protocol settings by using the HTTP interface (web browser). (See the Network
User's Guide.)
• To find what protocols your Brother machine supports, see the Network User's Guide.
• For information about supported security protocols, see Security protocols on page 19.
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 (for LCD models) 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.
ARP
1
Address Resolution Protocol performs mapping of an IP address to MAC address in a TCP/IP network.
3
Types of network connections and protocols
DNS client
1
The Brother print server supports the Domain Name System (DNS) client function. This function allows the
print server to communicate with other devices by using its DNS name.
1
NetBIOS name resolution
1
Network Basic Input/Output System name resolution enables you to obtain the IP address of the other device
using its NetBIOS name during the network connection.
WINS
1
Windows Internet Name Service is an information providing service for the NetBIOS name resolution by
consolidating an IP address and a NetBIOS name that is in the local network.
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 the Internet or Intranet.

1
Another commonly used printing protocol on a TCP/IP network. It enables interactive data transmission.
IPP
1
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP Version 1.0) allows you to print documents directly to any accessible
machine via the internet.
Note
For the IPPS protocol, see Security protocols on page 19.
mDNS
1
mDNS allows the Brother print server to automatically configure itself to work in a Mac OS X Simple Network
Configured system.
4
Types of network connections and protocols
TELNET
1
The TELNET protocol allows you to control the remote network devices on a TCP/IP network from your
computer.
1
SNMP
1
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network devices including computers,
routers and Brother network ready machines. The Brother print server supports SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and
SNMPv3.
Note
For the SNMPv3 protocol, see Security protocols on page 19.
LLMNR
1
The Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution protocol (LLMNR) resolves the names of neighboring computers,
if the network does not have a Domain Name System (DNS) server. The LLMNR Responder function works
in both the IPv4 or IPv6 environment when using a computer that has the LLMNR Sender function such as
Windows Vista® and Windows ® 7.
Web Services
1
The Web Services protocol enables Windows Vista® or Windows ® 7 users to install the Brother printer driver
by right-clicking the machine icon from the Network folder. (See Network printing Installation when using
Web Services (Windows Vista® and Windows ® 7) on page 15.) The Web Services also lets you check the
current status of the machine from your computer.
HTTP
1
The HTTP protocol is used to transmit the data between a web server and a web browser.
Note
For the HTTPS protocol, see Security protocols on page 19.
FTP (For the Scan to FTP feature)
1
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) allows the Brother machine to scan black and white or color documents
directly to an FTP server located locally on your network or on the internet.
5
Types of network connections and protocols
SNTP
1
The Simple Network Time Protocol is used to synchronize computer clocks on a TCP/IP network. You can
configure the SNTP settings using Web Based Management (web browser). (For the details, see the Network
User's Guide.)
CIFS
1
1

Windows®.
LDAP
1
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) allows the Brother machine to search for information such
as fax numbers and E-mail addresses from an LDAP server.
IPv6
1
IPv6 is the next generation internet protocol. For more information on the IPv6 protocol, visit the model page
for the machine you are using at http://solutions.brother.com/.
Other protocol
1
LLTD
1
The Link Layer Topology Discovery protocol (LLTD) lets you locate the Brother machine easily on the
Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 Network Map. Your Brother machine will be shown with a distinctive icon and
the node name. The default setting for this protocol is Off. You can activate LLTD using Web Based
Management (web browser) (See the Network User's Guide.), and the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility
software. Visit the download page for your model at http://solutions.brother.com/ to download BRAdmin
Professional 3.

2
Configuring your machine for a network
2
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
2
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 the print server will automatically obtain its IP
address from that server.
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may also be the Router.
For more information on DHCP, BOOTP and RARP, see:
Using DHCP to configure the IP address on page 21.
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 23.
Using RARP to configure the IP address on page 22.
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 23.
7
Configuring your machine for a network
Subnet mask
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
 Example: Computer 1 can talk to Computer 2
2
• Computer 1
IP Address: 192.168. 1. 2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.000
• Computer 2
IP Address: 192.168. 1. 3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.000
Where the 0 is in the Subnet mask, there is no limit to communication at this part of the address. What this
means in the above example is, we can communicate with any device that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.x. (where x. are numbers between 0 and 255).
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 on 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.

Configuring your machine for a network
IEEE 802.1x Authentication
2
IEEE 802.1x is an IEEE standard for wired and wireless network that limits an access from unauthorized
network devices. Your Brother machine (supplicant) sends an authentication request to a RADIUS server
(Authentication server) through your access point (Authenticator). After your request has been verified by the
RADIUS server, your machine can have an access to the network.
Authentication methods
2
2
 LEAP (For wireless network)
Cisco LEAP (Light Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Cisco Systems, Inc. which
uses a user ID and password for authentication.
 EAP-FAST
EAP-FAST (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Flexible Authentication via Secured Tunnel) has been
developed by Cisco Systems, Inc. which uses a user ID and password for authentication, and symmetric
key algorithms to achieve a tunneled authentication process.
The Brother machine supports the following inner authentications:
• EAP-FAST/NONE
• EAP-FAST/MS-CHAPv2
• EAP-FAST/GTC
 EAP-MD5 (For wired network)
EAP-MD5 (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Message digest algorithm 5) uses a user ID and password
for challenge-response authentication.
 PEAP
PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Microsoft Corporation, Cisco
Systems and RSA Security. PEAP creates an encrypt SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)/TLS (Transport Layer
Security) tunnel between a client and an authentication server, for sending a user ID and password. PEAP
provides mutual authentication between the server and the client.
The Brother machine supports the following inner authentications:
• PEAP/MS-CHAPv2
• PEAP/GTC
9
Configuring your machine for a network
 EAP-TTLS
EAP-TTLS (Extensible Authentication Protocol Tunneled Transport Layer Security) has been developed
by Funk Software and Certicom. EAP-TTLS creates a similar encrypt SSL tunnel to PEAP, between a
client and an authentication server, for sending a user ID and password. EAP-TTLS provides mutual
authentication between the server and the client.
The Brother machine supports the following inner authentications:
• EAP-TTLS/CHAP
• EAP-TTLS/MS-CHAP
• EAP-TTLS/MS-CHAPv2
• EAP-TTLS/PAP
 EAP-TLS
EAP-TLS (Extensible Authentication Protocol Transport Layer Security) requires digital certificate
authentication both at a client and an authentication server.

Wireless network terms and concepts
3
Specifying your network
3
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
3
3
You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
 SSID
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
Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. 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.
Security terms
3
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
machine, it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when
configuring these options. Please refer to the information in the Network User's Guide to see which
authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless machine supports.
11
Wireless network terms and concepts
Authentication and Encryption methods for a personal wireless network
3
Personal wireless network is a small network, for example using your machine in a wireless network at home,
without IEEE 802.1x support.
If you want to use your machine in an IEEE 802.1x supported wireless network, see Authentication and
Encryption methods for an enterprise wireless network on page 13.
Authentication methods
3
 Open system
Wireless devices are allowed to 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 wireless machine uses the WEP key 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 (WPA-Personal).
Encryption methods
3
 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 the Wi-Fi® authorized strong encryption standard.

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
TEXT_P1
TCP/IP text service (adds carriage return after each line feed)
PCL_P1
PCL service (switches PJL-compatible machine to PCL mode)
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx
TCP/IP binary
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx_AT
PostScript®
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript® service (switches PJL-compatible machine to PostScript® mode)
A
service for Macintosh
Where “xxxxxxxxxxxx” is your machine’s MAC Address (Ethernet Address).
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
administrators)
A
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 the 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 Network menu (for LCD models), BRAdmin applications, Remote Setup or Web Based Management
(web browser).
21
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:
00:80:77:31:01:07
BRN008077310107 (or BRW008077310107 for a wireless network)
Where the first entry is the MAC Address (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
A
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 machine is powered on.
22
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), MAC Address (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
A
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 machine 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 LCD models), BRAdmin Light or Web Based Management (web browser).
23
Appendix A
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 MAC Address (Ethernet 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 MAC Address (Ethernet
Address).
A
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 MAC Address
(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 Based Management
(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).
24
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 the print server.
Type TELNET <command line> at the command prompt of the system prompt, where <command line>
is the IP address of the print server. When you are connected, push the Return or Enter key to get the “#”
prompt. Enter the password “access” (the password will not appear on the screen).
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.
