Unix Printing
Printing from Unix/Linux using TCP/IP
Overview
Brother print 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.
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 default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0.
2
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your
printer.
3
The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4
The default name for a Brother print server is usually BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six
digits of the Ethernet address of the print server).
TCP/IP
Brother print 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.
The Brother print server is pre-configured to run on a TCP/IP network with a minimum of setup. The only
mandatory configuration of the print server is the allocation of an IP address, which can be either
automatically assigned using DHCP, or manually assigned using the BRAdmin Professional utility or the
printer control panel.
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your printer.
1 - 1 UNIX PRINTING
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 (or man pages) for additional
information.
1
Configure the /etc/hosts file on each UNIX host that needs to communicate with the print 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
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 server (the name that appears on the printer settings 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
Configure the /etc/printcap file on each host computer to specify the local print queue, the print
server name (also called remote machine or rm), and the print 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:
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 2
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, which can print to a Brother printer through spool directory /
usr/spool/lpd/laser1.
The rm and rp options are not available on some UNIX systems, so if necessary check your
documentation (or man pages) 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.
3
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.
1-3
UNIX PRINTING
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".
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.
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 server as the Remote System Name.
7
Enter the desired print 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.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 4
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 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.
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).
2
Enter the following remote printer settings (the other settings do not matter):
■ Line printer name (user-selectable).
■ Remote system name (the print server name; must match what is in hosts file or use print
server IP address).
■ Remote printer queue (We recommend using “BINARY_P1” for the queue name).
■ Remote Printer is on a BSD System (Yes).
IBM RS/6000 AIX Configuration
The RS/6000 AIX operating system uses the smit program to set up the remote printer. The procedure
is as follows for AIX 4.0 and later:
1
Enter smit and select devices.
2
Select Printer/Plotter.
3
Select Print Spooling.
4
Select Add a Print Queue.
5
Select Remote.
6
Enter the following Remote Printer Settings:
■ Name of queue (user selectable)
■ Host name of Remote Printer (print server name; must match name in /etc/hosts file or use
the print server IP address)
■ Name of queue on remote printer (We recommend using “BINARY_P1” for the queue name).
■ Type of print spooler. BSD (press the LIST button and choose BSD)
1-5
UNIX PRINTING
The procedure for pre-V4.0 systems is as follows.
1
Enter smit and select devices.
2
Select printer/plotter.
3
Select manage remote printer subsystem.
4
Select client services.
5
Select remote printer queues.
6
Select add a remote queue.
7
Enter the following remote queue settings:
■ Name of queue to add (user selectable).
■ Activate the queue (Yes).
■ Destination host (print server name; must match name in /etc/hosts file or use the print
server IP address)
■ Name of queue on remote printer (We recommend using “BINARY_P1” for the queue name).
■ 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
accept queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
enable queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
Where queue is the name of the local print queue.
prnservername is the name of the print server (must match the entry in the /etc/hosts file or IP
address).
prnserverservice is BINARY_P1service.
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 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.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 6
SCO UNIX Configuration
To configure a printer in version Version 5.x of SCO Unix, use the SCOADMIN program.
1
Select Printers and then Print Manager.
2

UNIX PRINTING
DEC TCP/IP Servers for VMS(UCX)
You need to run the sys$system:ucx:$lprsetup command, specify a printer name, and then enter
the print server IP address as the remote system name. Specify one of the print server services (see
beginning of this section for options) as the remote system printer name. Accept the defaults for other
questions.
TGV's Multinet
TGV's Multinet requires you to run the MULTINET CONFIGURE /PRINTERS command, then use the
ADD command to add a printer, specifying the print server IP address, a protocol type of LPD, and one
of the service options described at the beginning of this chapter as the remote print queue.
Wollongong's PATHWAY
First make sure that you have the Access option with lpd enabled. Then enter the print server name and
IP address in the TWG$TCP:[NETDIST.ETC]HOSTS file, run the LPGEN program, and execute the
command: add queue/rmachine=prnservername/rprinter=prnserverservice, where
queue is the name of the queue, prnservername is the print server name from the hosts file, and
prnserverservice is BINARY_P1.
IBM AS/400
To use a Brother print server with an IBM AS/400 running IBM's TCP/IP gateways services for OS/400
(the OS/400 system must be v3.1 or later)
Use the CFGTCP command at your OS/400 prompt to add the print server's TCP/IP address to the AS/
400 host table.
Use the following one-line OS/400 command to create the LPD queue:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(<queuename> RMSTSYS
(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ(<service>)
AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE (*OTHER)
MFRTYPMDL (<driver>)
INTNETADR('<ipaddress>') TEXT
('<description>')
where <queuename> is the new AS/400 print queue name, <service> is the print server service name
BINARY_P1<driver> is the OS/400 printer driver name (*HP4 is recommended if in doubt), and
<ipaddress> is the IP address of the print server. Note that the IP address and description must be
enclosed in single quotes.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 8
For example:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(BR1) RMTSYS(*INTNETADR)
RMTPRTQ(BINARY_P1) AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP)
DESTTYPE(*OTHER) MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI)
INTNETADR('10.0.0.200') TEXT('Arnes Printer')
If you are using A4 paper, you may find that the printer page formatting is incorrect (this is probably
because your AS/400 system is set to Letter sized paper), to resolve this problem, do the following:
Edit the Host Print Transform source code:
RTVWSCST DEVTYPE(*TRANSFORM) MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI)
SRCMBR(HP5SI) SRCFILE(MYLIB/SRC)
At the paper definition, alter the existing hex codes for Letter Size, 1B 26 6C 02 41 to hex codes for
A4 Size, 1B 26 6C 32 36 41.
OS/400 version 4, 5, 5.1
You can also use the following command line to create a printer definition:
CRTDEVPRT DEVD(BR2) DEVCLS(*LAN) TYPE(3812) MODEL(1) LANATTACH(*IP)
PORT(9100) FONT(011) PARITY(*NONE) STOPBITS(1) TRANSFORM(*YES)
MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI) PPRSRC1(*A4) PPRSRC2(*A4) RMTLOCNAME('10.0.0.200')
SYSDRVPGM(*HPPJLDRV) TEXT('Arnes Printer')
Other Systems
Other systems use similar programs to set up print servers. These programs will generally ask for the
following information:
Requested information:
You should use:
remote printer
BINARY_P1
remote host computer name
Any name (must match the name in the printcap file, if any) or in
some cases, you may enter the print server IP address here
remote host IP address
IP address of print server.
Technical support specialists for these companies can usually answer configuration questions if you
provide them with the equivalent UNIX configuration information (tell them that the print server looks like
a remote UNIX host computer running the lpd line printer daemon).
1-9
UNIX PRINTING
If you have not created a spool directory for the Brother print 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

TCP/IP Printing
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 printer using the TCP/IP protocol.
Microsoft Windows NT® 3.5x and NT® 4.0 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 default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0. To change it, use the printer control
panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin Professional utility, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP
address.
2
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your
printer.
3
The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4
Windows NT® 3.51 and Windows NT® 4.0 users must install the "Microsoft TCP/IP printing"
protocol.
5
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.
6
Windows® 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP protocol via a Windows® 2000/XP
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 computer and that the client PC is using
version 4 or later of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
7
The default name for a Brother print server is usually BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six
digits of the Ethernet address of the print 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.

TCP/IP PRINTING
LAN Server, OS/2 Warp Server Configuration
Brother print servers will work with IBM LAN Server, OS/2 Warp Server networks that have IBM TCP/IP
V2.0 or later installed on the file server (TCP/IP is supplied as standard with LAN Server V4.0 and later
as well as Warp Server). Use the following procedure to configure the print server on an LAN Server or
OS/2 Warp Server file server, or on an OS/2 Warp Connect workstation:
Server Configuration
Make sure that TCP/IP software is installed on your OS/2 file server. If you have not already done so,
open the TCP/IP folder on the desktop, and double click on the TCP/IP Configuration icon to add the
IP address to the OS/2 file server (consult your system manager for this address).
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your printer.
Configuration of an OS/2 Server
1
From the OS/2 desktop open the Templates folder. Use the right mouse button to drag the Printer
icon (not the Network Printer icon) onto the desktop.
2
The Create a Printer window should be open (if it is not, double click on the printer icon).
3
Type in any name for the printer.
4
Select the default printer driver. If the desired printer driver is not listed, click on the Install new Printer
Driver button and add the driver.
5
Choose the output port. IBM TCP/IP automatically creates 8 named pipes called \PIPE\LPD0
through to \PIPE\LPD7. Pick an unused port and double click on it.
Early versions of Warp Server have a bug in which the named pipes do not appear (the problem does
not affect Warp Connect or LAN Server). This problem is fixed via a patch available from IBM.
You will get the Settings window. Enter the following:
LPD server
The Brother print server name (from the HOSTS file) or its IP address.
LPD printer
For most applications, use the Brother print server 'binary' service BINARY_P1.
Host name
The IP name of the OS/2 file server
User
The IP address of the OS/2 file server
TCP/IP PRINTING 2 - 6
You may leave the other entries blank. Click on the OK button. The pipe should be highlighted; if not,
click on it.
Click on the Create button to create the printer.
Open the LAN Services folder and execute the LAN Requester program:
1
Select Definitions.
2
Select Aliases.
3
Select Printers.
4
Select Create. Enter the following:
Alias
Should be same as the printer name previously defined
Description
Anything you want
Server name
Name of OS/2 server
Spooler queue
Name of printer as defined previously
Maximum number of users
Leave blank unless you want to limit the number of users
5
Exit the LAN Requester program.
6
You should now be able to print. To test the queue, type the following from either the OS/2
command prompt or from a DOS workstation:
7
COPY C:\CONFIG.SYS \\servername\alias
8
Where servername is the name of the file server and alias is the alias name that you specified
during this configuration process. This should print the CONFIG.SYS file on the printer. Note that if
you selected a binary service as the LPD printer name, the lines will be staggered; don't worry about
this because normal DOS, Windows®, and OS/2 applications will print OK.
9
The Brother print server will appear as a standard OS/2 printer to application programs. To make
the print server operate transparently with DOS programs, execute the following command on each
workstation:
10
NET USE LPT1: \\servername\alias
11
This will make the printer appear to the software as a printer that is directly connected to the parallel
port of the workstation.

Peer to Peer Printing
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 default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0. To change it, use the printer control
panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin Professional utility, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP
address to the printer.
2
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of this the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your

NetBIOS Peer to Peer Printing
How to Print using NetBIOS in Windows® 95/98/Me/NT/
2000/XP, LAN Server and OS/2 Warp Server
Overview
Brother print server range supports SMB (Server Message Block) 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 default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0. To change it, use the printer control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
printer
2
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of this printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your
printer.
3
The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4
The default domain name of the print server is WORKGROUP, to change it use your web browser or
the BRAdmin Professional utility.
4 - 1 NETBIOS PEER TO PEER PRINTING
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 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 print server. 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 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 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 two 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 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.
Because of the way that Microsoft networks work, the print server may take several minutes to
appear in the network neighborhood. You will also find that the print 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.

Novell NetWare Printing
How to configure Novel NetWare Printing
Overview
Brother print 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 Novel server and delivered to the
printer when it is available.
Quick Tips:
1
The default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0. To change it, use the printer control
panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
printer.
2
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of this the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your
printer.
3
The default password for Brother print servers is access.
You can set the Netware environment easily by using the Netware Quick Setup option in the
BRAdmin Professional utility. To start Netware Quick Setup, start the BRAdmin Professional utility
and select the printer icon you wish to configure. Select “Netware Quick Setup” in the control menu.
Enter the administrator’s password and then follow the instructions on the screen.

The printer supports the following versions NetWare:
NetWare 3.12/3.2 (bindery service)
Netware 4.1/4.11/4.2/5 (bindery service)
NetWare 4.1/4.11/4.2/5 (directory service)
Directory service (NDS) and bindery service support the following modes respectively:
Queue Server mode in which the printer functions as a print server
Remote printer mode in which the printer functions as a remote printer
The printing procedure of the two modes is explained below. Decide on the mode to use before you
install the printer.
6 - 1 NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING
Queue Server Mode (Recommended)
In the Queue Server mode, the printer functions as the print server by retrieving and printing print jobs
from the print queues on the file server. As it fully utilizes the printer functions, the system capacity of
this mode is better than that of the remote printer mode. However, the printer uses one user license on
the file server.
Remote Printer Mode
In the remote printer mode, the print server running on the file server sends jobs to the printer. The printer
prints out the jobs retrieved from the print server. In this mode, the printer does not use up any user
license of the file server.
To install your printer in a NetWare environment, you must ensure that you log on as SUPERVISOR (for
NetWare 3.x) or ADMIN (for NetWare 4.x 5.x)
Interface
The following frame types are supported:

AppleTalk (EtherTalk) TCP/IP Printing
Printing From a Macintosh
Overview
Brother print servers support the AppleTalk protocol running over Ethernet (also known as EtherTalk).
This allows Macintosh users to print at the same time as all other Ethernet network using the AppleTalk
(also referred to as EtherTalk) protocol.
With the release of System 8.6 or later, Apple introduced a TCP/IP printing capability. This allows
Macintosh users to send print jobs using the TCP/IP protocol.
Quick Tips:
1
The default name that will appear in the Chooser of a Macintosh will usually be
BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT (where 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.

Protocol). You can get the following information from a printer on your network using a web browser:
1
Printer status information.
2
Change network and printer configuration details.
You must use the TCP/IP protocol on your network and have a valid IP address programmed into the
print server and your computer.
Quick Tips:
1
The default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0. To change it, use the printer’s control
panel the BRAdmin Professional utility, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the
printer.
2
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide of the printer to learn how to configure the IP address on your

TCP/IP Configuration
Assigning TCP/IP Information
Overview
The TCP/IP protocol requires that each device on the network have it's own unique IP address. Use the
following information to learn about IP address configuration.
By default Brother print servers have a an IP address of 0.0.0.0. However, you can easily change this
IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network. This can be done in any of the
following ways:
■ Printer’s control panel
■ BRAdmin Professional utility (for Windows® 95/98/Me/NT 4.0/2000/XP, using the IPX/SPX or
TCP/IP protocols)
■ DHCP
Other ways to CHANGE the IP address once it is already set:
■ HTTP (Web browser).
■ Other SNMP based management utility.
These configuration methods are described in the following paragraphs.
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 router (gateway).
Using the printer control panel to allocate an IP address
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for details on how to configure IP address information using the printer
control panel. By using the control panel on the printer, you can program the IP address details at the
same time that other printer parameters are configured.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 9 - 1
Changing the IP Address using the BRAdmin Professional utility
(Windows users only)
Start the BRAdmin Professional utility (from Windows® 95/98/Me, NT4.0, Windows® 2000/XP).
The BRAdmin Professional utility can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols to communicate with the
Brother print server. As the default IP address of Brother print servers is 0.0.0.0, the print server will
probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme on your network.
■ Use the IPX/SPX protocol.
■ Use the TCP/IP protocol and let BRAdmin Professional utility find the Brother print server as an
unconfigured device.
Using BRAdmin Professional utility and the IPX/SPX Protocol to set the
IP address
If your PC is using the Novell Netware Client software and is using the IPX/SPX protocol, do the
following:
1
Select IPX/SPX filter in the left frame of the main window.
2
Check the print server name (the default node name is BRN_xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six
digits of the Ethernet address (MAC address)).
If you cannot find your server name, select the Device menu and choose Search Active Devices (you
can also press the F4 key) and try again
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the printer settings page. Refer to the
Quick Setup Guide of the printer how to print the printer settings page on your print server.
3
Select the print server that you wish to configure and double click it. You will be asked for a
password. The default password is access.
4
Select the TCP/IP tab and set the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway as needed.
5
Click OK.
Restart the print server by using BRAdmin Professional utility or Web Browser. If you are not sure how
to restart the print server, you may simply turn the printer’s power switch off, and then switch it on.

TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using BRAdmin Professional utility and the TCP/IP Protocol to set the
IP address
If your PC is using the TCP/IP protocol, do the following:
1
Select TCP/IP filter in the left frame of the main window.
2
Select the Device menu and choose the Search Active Devices.
If the print server is set to its factory default settings, or your printer IP address is not appropriate to
your network environment, the print server will not appear in the BRAdmin Professional utility. Set
the correct IP address to your network environment using IPX/SPX filter or printer control panel.
3
Select the print server that you wish to configure and double click it. You will be asked for a
password. The default password is “access”.
4
Select the TCP/IP tab and set the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway as needed
5
Click OK.
Using DHCP to Configure the IP address
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have DHCP Server in your network (typically a Unix, Windows® NT/2000 or Novell
Netware network) the print server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and register
its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.

TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 9 - 3
10 Troubleshooting
Overview
This chapter describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you may encounter with a Brother print
server, it is divided into the following sections:
1
Installation Problems
2
Intermittent Problems
3
Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting
Installation problems
If you cannot print over the network, check the following:
1
Make sure that the printer is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.
Verify that the printer and the configuration are good by printing the printer settings page. Refer to
the Quick Setup Guide. If the test fails, check:
2
If the printer settings page prints but you cannot print documents, try the following
If none of the following steps are successful, there is almost certainly a hardware or network problem!
a If you are using TCP/IP:
Try pinging the print server from the host operating system command prompt with the
command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the print server IP address (note that in some instances it can take up
to two minutes for the print server to load its IP address after setting the IP address). If a
successful response is received, then proceed to the UNIX, TCP/IP Windows® NT/LAN
Server, Windows®98/95/Me Peer to Peer (LPR), Internet Printing or Web Browser
troubleshooting section. Otherwise, proceed to step 3, and then go to TCP/IP Troubleshooting
section.
b
If you are using Novell system:
Verify that the print server can be seen on the network. To do this, login as the SUPERVISOR
(not as someone with supervisor privileges) or ADMIN (for Netware 4 or later servers), go into
PCONSOLE or NWADMIN, select PRINT SERVER INFORMATION, and select the name of
the print server (make sure that you have entered the print server name). If you can see Print
Server Status and Control in the menu, then the Brother print server is visible to the
network, proceed to the Novel NetWare Installation Troubleshooting Section. Otherwise, go to
step 3.
10 - 1 TROUBLESHOOTING
c
3
If you are running AppleTalk for Macintosh:
Make sure that you can see the print server name under the LaserWriter 8 icon in the Chooser.
If it is visible, then the connection is good, so proceed to the AppleTalk for Macintosh Section.
Otherwise, go to step 3.
If you cannot make any of the connections in step 2, check the following:
a
b
Make sure the printer is powered on and on-line.
c
Check to see if there is any LED activity.
Check the cabling, network connection, referring to printer settings page and make sure that
the “Ethernet Mode” is not set to “unknown”. If the “Ethernet Mode” is set to “unknown”, printer
cable may not be connected to the printer.
Brother print servers have two LEDs.
■
Green-LED
This LED is on if there is a valid connection to the network 100BaseTX).
■
Orange-LED
This LED will be on or blink if the print server is connected to a 10BaseT or 100BaseTX
network.
4
If you are using a repeater or hub, make sure that SQE (heartbeat) is turned off at the hub. Also, if
you have a hub or multi-port repeater, verify that the hub or repeater port is good by trying the print
server on a different port or on the other hub or multi-port repeater.
5
If you have a bridge or router located between the print server and host computer, make sure that
the device is set up to allow the print server to send and receive data from the host. For example,
a bridge can be set up to only allow certain types of Ethernet addresses to pass through (a process
known as filtering); therefore, such a bridge must be configured to allow Brother print server
addresses. Likewise, a router can be set up to pass only certain protocols, so be sure that the
desired protocol can be passed through to the print server.
6
If the job exits the queue but does not print, make sure that you are not trying to print a text job to a
PostScript printer. If you have a printer that is capable of automatic language switching, make sure
that the printer is not forced into PostScript mode.
TROUBLESHOOTING 10 - 2
Intermittent Problems
If the print server and printer start up OK, but you intermittently have problems printing, check the
following:
1
If you can print small jobs but large graphics jobs are distorted or incomplete, make sure that you
have adequate memory in your printer and the latest printer driver installed on your computer. The
latest Brother printer drivers can be downloaded from http://solutions.brother.com
2
Check the individual protocol troubleshooting sections in this chapter for additional causes of
intermittent printer problems.
TCP/IP Troubleshooting
If you are using TCP/IP and cannot print to the print server and you have checked the hardware and
network as described in the previous steps, then check the following:
It is always a good idea to try following in order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors.
Turning off the printer and then again,
Deleting and recreating the print server and creating a new print queue in order to eliminate the
possibility of setup errors.
1
The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP address.
Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the print server (via the printer settings page.)
Make sure that no other nodes on the network have this address (DUPLICATE IP ADDRESS ARE
THE BIGGEST CAUSE OF TCP/IP PRINTING PROBLEMS).
2
Make sure that the TCP/IP protocol of the print server is enabled.
3
Verify that host computer and the print server are either on the same subnet, otherwise that the
router is properly configured to pass data between the two devices.
10 - 3
TROUBLESHOOTING
UNIX Troubleshooting
1
Make sure that the /etc/printcap file (if applicable) is typed in correctly. In particular, look for
missing ":" and "\" characters, because a small error anywhere in the file can have major
consequences. Also check the /usr/spool directory to make sure that you have created a valid
spool directory.
2
If you are using a Linux operating system, the X-Window Print tool program that is included with
Linux may not properly configure the etc/printcap file for lpd operation, then you might also edit the
etc/printcap file and change the following line in the entry for the printer.
if
:lp = /dev/null: \
then to
:lp = :\
3
If you are using a Berkeley-based UNIX, make sure that the daemon is started on Berkeley based
systems with the command lpc start printer, where printer is the name of the local print queue.
4
If you are using an AT&T-based UNIX, make sure the printer is enabled (enable printer, where
printer is the name of the local print queue).
5
Make sure that the lpr/lpd remote line printer service are running on the host computer (refer to your
host computer documentation for information on how to do this).
6
If you are using Sun Solaris V2.4 or earlier, there is a bug which causes long print jobs to fail when
using a print server. If you are having trouble printing long jobs (over 1MB), add the line mx#0 to
your etc/printcap file entry.
7
If you cannot print from DEC TCP/IP Service for VMS (UCX), make sure that you have version 2.0B
or later of this software, because earlier versions will not work with Brother print servers.
TROUBLESHOOTING 10 - 4
Windows® NT/LAN Server (TCP/IP) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing with Windows® NT or LAN Server, check the following:
1
Make sure that TCP/IP and TCP/IP print service are installed and running on the Windows® NT
system or the LAN Server file server.
2
If you are using DHCP and you have not created a reservation for the print server, make sure that
you enter the NetBIOS name of the print server in the Name or address of server providing lpd
box.
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer to Peer Print (LPR) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer network (LPR method), check
the following:
1
Make sure that the Brother LPR Port driver is correctly installed and configured according to the
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer chapters.
2
Try to turn the Byte Count on in the Configure port area of printer driver properties.
You may find that during the installation of BLP software, the screen that prompts you for a Port name
is not displayed. This may happen on some Windows® 95/98/Me computers. Press the ALT and TAB
keys to make it appear.
Windows® 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 Peer-to-Peer Print (NetBIOS)
Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 (or later) Peer-to-Peer network
(NetBIOS), check the following:
1
Make sure that the Brother NetBIOS Port driver is securely installed and configured according to
the Windows® 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 Peer-to-Peer (NetBIOS) chapters. You may find that during the
installation of the port driver, the screen that prompts you for a Port name is not displayed. This
happens on some Windows® 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 computers. Press the ALT and TAB keys to make it
appear.
2
Make sure that the print server is configured to be in the same workgroup or domain as the rest of
your computers. It may take several minutes for the print server to appear in the network
neighborhood.
10 - 5
TROUBLESHOOTING
IPP Troubleshoothing
If you are using the IPP protocol and the printer does not stop printing do the following:
1
Press the <Job Cancel> button on the control panel.
2
Turn the printer power switch off when printer stops.
3
Delete the all jobs.
4
Restart your computer, and then turn the printer power switch on.
Windows® 2000 IPP Troubleshooting
Make sure that the URL setting for IPP is set to http://ip_address:631/ipp (enter your printer IP address
to “ip_address”).
Novell NetWare Troubleshooting
If you cannot print from NetWare and you have checked the hardware and network as described in the
previous steps, first verify that the Brother print server is attached to the server queue by going to
PCONSOLE, selecting PRINT QUEUE INFORMATION, and then CURRENTLY ATTACHED
SERVERS. If the print server does not appear in the list of attached servers, then check the following:
It is always a good idea to try followings in order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors.
■ Turning off the printer and then on again to force to rescan the Netware queue.
■ Deleting and recreating the print server and creating a new print queue in order to eliminate the
possibility of setup errors.
1
If you changed the login password, you must change the password in both the Brother print server
(using the SET NETWARE PASSWORD command if you are using the BRConfig software) or by using
a web browser or the BRAdmin Professional utility and in the file server (using the PCONSOLE
Print Server Information Change Password command).
2
If you created the print queue using PCONSOLE instead of BRAdmin Professional utility, make sure
that you have selected the appropriate Queue at the Netware Environment button in Netware tab
on BRAdmin Professional utility.
3
Have you exceeded your NetWare user limit?
4
Make sure that the print server name you used in PCONSOLE exactly matches the name that is
configured in the print server, and make sure it is defined as a Queue Server for the print queue.
TROUBLESHOOTING 10 - 6
5
If you are running both 802.3 and Ethernet II frames on different file servers on your network, there
is a possibility that the print server may not make a connection to the desired file server. Try forcing
the frame type to the desired one using the SET NETWARE FRAME command from the print server
remote console or using BRAdmin Professional utility.
6
If you are using DOS CAPTURE statement and losing portions of your print job, try setting the
TIMEOUT parameter in your CAPTURE statement to a higher value (at least 50 seconds for
Windows®).
AppleTalk Troubleshooting
If you cannot print from an AppleTalk for Macintosh computer and you have checked the hardware and
network as described in the previous steps, then check the following:
1
Make sure that you are running Phase 2 AppleTalk and that you have selected the correct network
interface from the AppleTalk Control Panel on the Macintosh.
2
Make sure that the AppleTalk protocol of the print server is enabled.
3
If you have a large network, make sure that you have the Laser Writer V8.xx or equivalent driver,
since earlier versions may cause PostScript errors. Also, verify that you get the correct printer
information when you select Printer Info from the Setup button in the Chooser.
4
Make sure that you have selected the correct Printer Description File (PPD) from the Chooser
(otherwise PostScript errors may result)
5
Verify that you have selected the correct AppleTalk zone. Because the print server gets its zone
information from router broadcasts, it may not be in the zone you expect, and will therefore not show
up in the Chooser. If this is the case, you may need to force the zone name using BRAdmin
Professional utility or a web browser.
Web Browser Troubleshooting (TCP/IP)
1
If you can not connect to the print server using your web browser it may be worth checking the Proxy
Settings of your browser. Look in the Exceptions setting and if necessary, type in the IP address of
the print server. This will stop your PC from trying to connect to your ISP or proxy server every time
you wish to look at the printer server.
2
Make sure that you are using the proper Web Browser, we recommend Netscape Navigator version
4.0 or later/ Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.0 or later.
