Unix Printing

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 the machine control

panel. For more information, see

machine.

APIPA

on 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 control panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the

2

To learn how to configure the IP address on your machine, see

Chapter 11

of this User’s Guide.

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

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 machine control panel.

For setting the IP address of the Print/Fax server, see

Chapter 11

of this User’s Guide or the Quick Setup 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 editor to add an entry to the file on each UNIX host that needs to communicate with the Print/Fax server. Use your favorite /etc/hosts file containing the IP address and node name of the device. For example: 192.189.207.3

BRN_310107 1 - 2 UNIX PRINTING

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

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 see

SCO UNIX Configuration

on page 1-10 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 Step 4. SCO user's should also skip to Step 4 (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

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.

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

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

(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.

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 enter: /usr/spool create a new spool directory, use the directory (check with your system manager to see if the location is different for your system). To mkdir command. For example, to create a spool directory for the queue laser1, you would mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/laser1 On some systems it is also necessary to start the daemon.

TCP/IP Printing

Printing from Windows NT

®

4.0, Windows

®

2000/XP, LAN Server and Warp Server

Overview

Users of Windows NT ® 4.0 can print directly to a network-ready Brother machine using the TCP/IP protocol. Microsoft Windows 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 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 the machine control

panel. For more information, see

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 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 ® 4.0, 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 identification tab in your network applet).

Internet Printing Installation

Overview

Brother's Brother Internet Print (BIP) software, for Windows ® 95/98/ Me and Windows NT Paris.

® 4.0, 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 Windows Windows ® ® 2000/XP users can also use this BIP software, but are recommended to use the IPP protocol support that is part of the 2000/XP operating systems. Skip to the “Windows ® 2000 IPP Printing” section of this document.

Quick Tips:

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 the machine control

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 ®

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/ 2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 Installation Wizard. It creates a virtual port on the Windows ® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 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/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 Print Manager to create a printer that uses this port along with a standard Windows ® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0-compatible printer. Any Windows ® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 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 MIME encoded (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

■ 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. 5 - 3 CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS ®

Brother Internet Print: Using BRAdmin Professional utility to Configure the Print Server

Skip this section if you wish to use the Web Browser to configure the Print/Fax server.

Using the BRAdmin Professional utility, you can configure the Brother print server using the TCP/IP protocol, or the IPX protocol.

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 Netware Print 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.

Brother Print/Fax servers can service up to 16 file servers and 32 queues.

6 - 2 NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING

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 see

Other Sources of Information

on page 6-13.

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

Configuring DLC on Other Systems

To use DLC on other network systems, you will generally need vendor-supplied software. Typically such software will support the Brother Print/Fax servers. Follow the vendor's instructions to install the DLC protocol on your system.

Once the protocol is installed, create a network port in the same way that you did for Windows NT ® 4.0 in the previous sections. The MAC address (Ethernet address) of the Print/Fax server should automatically appear during the configuration process.

DLC PRINTING 8 - 4

The final step is to create a printer using the normal operating system printer setup method. The only difference is that instead of connecting the printer to the LPT1 parallel port, you point it to the network port you just created.

Brother does not recommend using the DLC protocol with Windows ® for Workgroups 3.11 in a peer-to-peer configuration if the printer will be heavily used. This is because jobs may be rejected due to print spooler timeouts. The best solution in these situations is to set up one PC as a server for handling network print jobs. All of the other PCs send their print jobs to the server PC using NetBEUI or TCP/IP, and the server PC then uses DLC to send the print jobs to the Brother print server.

Web Based Management

How to use a Web Browser to manage your Device

Overview

A standard Web Browser (we recommend Netscape Navigator version 4.0 or later/Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or later) can be used to manage your machine using the HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). You can get the following information from a printer on your network using a web browser:

1

Printer status information.

2

Change Fax configuration items, such as Initial Setup. One Touch Dial settings and Remote Fax.

3

You can also change network settings such as TCP/IP information, Internet Fax address information, etc.

4

Software version information of the machine and print server.

5

Change network and machine configuration details.

You must use the TCP/IP protocol on your network and have a valid IP address programmed into the Print/Fax server and your computer.

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 the machine control

panel. For more information, see

machine.

APIPA

on 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 control panel, the BRAdmin Professional utility, Web BRAdmin software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the WEB BASED MANAGEMENT 9 - 1

2

To learn how to configure the IP address on your machine, see

Chapter 11

of this User’s Guide.

3

The default password for Brother print servers is access .

4

You can use a web browser on most computing platforms, for example, Macintosh and Unix users are also able to connect to the machine and manage it.

5

You can also use the BRAdmin Professional utility to manage the printer and its network configuration.

How to connect to your machine using a Browser

Type http://printer’s IP Address / into your browser (you can also use the NetBIOS name of the Print/Fax server, if you are in a Microsoft Windows domain/Workgroup environment). Enter the DNS name of the machine if connecting to a network that uses the DNS protocol.

Password Information

Web Based Management offers two levels of password access. Users are able to access to the General Setup, Fax settings, I-Fax Settings and Lists and Reports. The default user name for Users is

user

(case sensitive) and the default password is

access

.

Administrators are able to access all settings. The login name for the Administrator is

admin

(case sensitive) and the default password is

Static mode

In this mode the DCP/MFC IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to the assigned address.

Auto mode

In this mode, the machine will scan the network for a DHCP server, if it can find one, and if the DHCP server is configured to allocate an IP address to the machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will used. If no DHCP server is available, then the machine will scan for a BOOTP server. If a BOOTP server is available, and it is configured correctly, the machine will take its IP address from the BOOTP server. After it is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the network for a server.

The machine supports “POWER SAVE mode” and you are using the AUTO Boot mode, POWER SAVE must be set to OFF.

10 - 2 FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU

RARP mode

Brother Print / Fax server 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 BRN_310107 Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print / Fax server and the second entry is the name of the Print / Fax server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).

If the rarp daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd, rarpd -a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for additional information). To verify that the rarp daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX-based system, type the following command: ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd For AT&T UNIX-based systems, type: ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd The Brother Print / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when it is powered on.

BOOTP mode

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”.

FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU 10 - 3

In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type (1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the Print / Fax 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: and: BRN_310107 1 00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3

BRN_310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\ ip=192.189.207.3: Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included a download filename in the configuration file; if this is the case, simply create a null file on the host and specify the name of this file and its path in the configuration file.

As with rarp, the Print / Fax server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the machine is powered on.

DHCP mode

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 ® 2000/XP, Windows NT ® 4.0 or Novell Netware network) the Print / Fax server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.

If you do not want your Print / Fax server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD to static, this will prevent the Print / Fax server from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT METHOD, use the front panel, Web browser or by using the BRAdmin application.

10 - 4 FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU

IP Address

This field displays the current IP address of the DCP/MFC. If you have selected a BOOT Method of STATIC, enter the IP address that you wish to assign to the DCP/MFC (check with your network manager for the IP address to use). If you have selected a method other than STATIC, the DCP/MFC will attempt to determine its IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of the Brother network board in your DCP/MFC will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your network manager for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.

Relay Report

Relay Broadcast Report can be printed at the MFC used as the Relay Station for all Relay Broadcasts. Also, when the MFC is used with the Brother Network PC Fax software the MFC is acting as a Relay Station for fax transmissions from the network so a Relay Report can also be printed for confirmation of sent network faxes. (For US / Canada only) Its primary function is to print reports of Relay Broadcasts from external sources through the MFC. Please note that this is not possible without the consent of the Relaying Station as permission in the form of Relay Domain has to be given to external parties.

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.

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 the APIPA protocol is disabled, the default IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. However, you can easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network. This can be done in any of the following ways: ■ From your machine’s control panel settings.

■ BRAdmin Professional utility (for Windows ® 95/98/Me / 2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 using the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols).

■ DHCP, APIPA, Reverse ARP (rarp) or BOOTP.

■ The ARP command.

■ HTTP (Web browser).

■ Other SNMP based management utility.

■ Web BRAdmin software These configuration methods are described in the following paragraphs.

The IP address you assign to the Print/Fax 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).

TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 1

Using the machine control panel to allocate an IP address (Models with LCD panels only)

For details on how to configure IP address information using the

machine control panel , see

configured.

chapter 10

of this User’s Guide. By using

the control panel on the machine, you can program the IP address details at the same time that other machine parameters are

Changing the IP Address using the BRAdmin Professional utility

Please use BRAdmin Professional utility version on the CD-ROM that was supplied with your Brother product or later.Please visit http://solutions.brother.com to download the latest Brother BRAdmin Professional utility version.

Start the BRAdmin Professional utility (from Windows ® 95/98/Me/ 2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0).

11 - 2 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION

The BRAdmin Professional utility can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols to communicate with the Brother Print/Fax server.

If you wish to use the TCP/IP protocol to manage the Print/Fax server make sure that the Print/Fax server has a valid IP address. If you are not using DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you will want to change the IP address.There are two ways to change the IP address using the BRAdmin Professional utility: ■ Use the IPX/SPX protocol.

■ Use the TCP/IP protocol and let BRAdmin Professional utility find the Brother Print/Fax 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/Fax 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 machine configuration page. For information on how

to print the configuration page on your Print/Fax server, see

Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch)

on page 13-4.

3

Select the Print/Fax server that you wish to configure and double click it. You will be asked for a password. The default password is access .

(if needed) of your Print/Fax server.

6

Click

OK

then select

.

7

With the correctly programmed IP address, you will see the Brother Print/Fax server in the device list.

11 - 4 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION

Using DHCP to Configure the IP address

The 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/Linux, Windows NT ® 4.0, Windows ® 2000, XP or Novell Netware network) the Print/Fax server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.

If you do not want your Print/Fax server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD to static so that the Print/Fax server has a static IP address. This will prevent the Print/Fax server from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT METHOD, use the machine’s control panel, a Web browser or by using the BRAdmin Professional utility.

Using APIPA to Configure the IP Address

With Automatic Private IP Addressing (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.

TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 5

Using ARP to Configure the Print/Fax Server IP Address

If you are unable to use the BRAdmin Professional utility or the FAX\MFC’s control panel and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can also use the ARP command. The ARP command is available on Windows command prompt: ® systems that have TCP/IP installed as well as Unix systems. To use arp enter the following command at the arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the Print/Fax server and ipaddress is the IP address of the Print/ Fax server. For example:

Windows ® Systems

Windows ® Systems require the hyphen “-” character between each digit of the Ethernet address.

arp -s 192.189.207.2 00 80 77 31 01 07 11 - 6 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION

Unix/Linux Systems

Typically, Unix systems require the colon “ : ” character between each digit of the Ethernet address.

arp -s 192.189.207.2 00:80:77:31:01:07 You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the Print/Fax 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/ Fax 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/Fax server using the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The Print/Fax server will ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use a Web Browser, the machine’s control panel or factory reset the Print/Fax server (which will then allow you to use the ARP command again).

To configure the Print/Fax server and to verify the connection, enter the following command ping ipaddress where ipaddress is the IP address of the Print/Fax server. For example, ping 192.189.207.2

.

TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 7

Using RARP to Configure the IP Address

The Brother Print/Fax 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 BRN_310107 Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print/Fax server and the second entry is the name of the Print/Fax 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 following command: 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 ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd For AT&T UNIX-based systems, type: ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd The Brother Print/Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when the printer is powered on. 11 - 8 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION

Using BOOTP to Configure the IP Address

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 would be: /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 #bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”.

In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type (1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the Print/Fax 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: and: BRN_310107 1 00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3

BRN_310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\ ip=192.189.207.3: TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 11 - 9

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/Fax server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the machine is powered on.

Internet FAX (MFC Only)

Overview

Internet Faxing (I-FAX) allows you to send and receive FAX documents using the Internet as the transport mechanism. Documents are transmitted in E-mail messages as attached TIFF-F files. This means that PC's are also able to receive and send documents, providing that the PC has as an application that can generate and view TIFF-F files, you can use Microsoft from the Brother Web site MIME format.

http://www.brother.com

® Imaging or a TIFF-F viewer application [Pages Viewer] is available as a download . Any documents sent via the MFC will automatically be converted into a TIFF-F format. If you wish to send and receive messages to and from your MFC, your mail application on the PC must be able to support the E-mail Relay Fax (G3 TX) Internet Internet Fax Internet E-mail Relay E-mail INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY) 12 - 1

Getting Connected

Before sending or receiving an Internet Fax you must configure your Brother MFC to communicate with your network and mail server. You must ensure the following: a correctly configured IP address for your MFC, an E-mail address for your MFC, the mail server(s) IP address, mailbox name and password for your Brother MFC. If you are unsure of any of these items, please contact your systems administrator. For details of how to configure this information, refer to the Web Based Management section (Internet Settings) of this User’s Guide.

button.

If your MFC starts to receive E-mail print jobs, the LCD panel will reflect this activity. For example, you will see Receiving on the LCD panel followed by “xx MAIL(S)”. If you press the

Shift

+

Start

buttons to manually poll the E-mail server for E-mail print jobs and there are no mail documents waiting to be printed, the MFC will display No Mail on the LCD panel for two seconds.

INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY) 12 - 5

If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received data will be held in the MFC's memory. This data will be printed automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine. (For European, Asian and Oceanian MFCs, Memory receive must be switched “ON”.) If the received mail is not in a plain text format or an attached file is not in the TIFF-F format, the following error message will be printed:

ATTACHED FILE FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED. FILE NAME:XXXXXX.doc

If the received mail is too large, the following error message will be printed:

E-MAIL FILE TOO LARGE.

If

(default) then error mail is automatically deleted from the E-mail Server.

Receiving an Internet Fax to a PC

When a PC receives an Internet Fax document, the document is attached to a mail message that informs the PC that it is receiving a document from an Internet Fax. This is notified in the Subject field of the received mail message.

If the PC to which you wish to send a document is not running Windows ® 95/ 98/98SE/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 operating system, please inform the PC's owner that software must be downloaded for documents in the TIFF-F format to be viewed.

You can use “Microsoft ® Imaging” that is supplied with Windows ® 95/ 98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0 but some older versions of Windows ® 95 do not support viewing TIFF-F documents.

Forwarding Received E-mail and Fax Messages

You can forward received E-mail or standard fax messages to another E-mail address or fax machine. Received messages can be forwarded via E-mail to a PC or Internet Fax. They can also be forwarded via standard phone lines to another MFC.

Please see User’s Guide included with the machine to check that this feature is supported. This function is not available for color fax documents.

12 - 6 INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY)

This can be done using the Web Management Utility or through the front panel. The steps for configuring Fax Forward can be found in the User’s Guide supplied with your MFC.

Relay Broadcasting

This function allows the Brother MFC to receive a document over the Internet, and then relay it to other fax machines through conventional telephone lines. If you wish to use your MFC as a relay broadcast device, you must specify the domain name that you trust at the MFC, in other words, the portion of the domain after the ‘@’ sign.

A trusted domain refers to the E-mail address. For example, if the other party’s address is [email protected], then we identify the domain as brother.com. If the E-mail address is [email protected], then we identify the domain as brother.co.uk.

Use care in selecting a trusted domain since any user on a trusted domain will be able to send a Relay Broadcast. You can register up to 10 domain names.

Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum of 48 fax machines through conventional telephone lines.

If you do not enter the domain name information, then the machine in the middle (the machine that will broadcast the document) will not trust any internet jobs that it receives from the MFC in the @brother.com domain.

After the trusted domain is set you can send the document from your MFC [I.E. [email protected]] by entering the E-mail address of the MFC [I.E. [email protected]] that will forward the document followed by the phone number of the fax that will receive the document. The following is an example of how to enter the E-mail address and phone number.

TX Verification Mail

Transmission Verification Mail supports two separate functions. Verification Mail for sending allows you request notification from the receiving station that the I-Fax or E-mail was received and processed. Verification Mail for receiving allows you to transmit a default report back to the sending station after successfully receiving and processing an I-Fax or E-mail.

INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY) 12 - 9

To use this feature you must set the

Notification

option within the

Setup Mail RX

and

Setup Mail TX

options.

Setup Mail (TX)

You can set the

Notification

option in the

Setup Mail TX

option to either ON or OFF. When switched to ON an additional field of information is sent with the image data. This field is named

MDN

.

MDN

Mail Disposition Notification - This field requests the status of the I Fax / E-mail message after delivery through the SMTP (send mail transfer protocol) transport system. Once the message has arrived at the Receiving station this data is used when the MFC or user reads or prints the received I-Fax or E-mail. For example, if the message is opened for reading or is printed the receiving station sends back a notification to the original sending machine or user.

The receiving station must support the MDN field in order to be able to send a notification report, otherwise the request will be ignored.

Setup Mail (RX)

There are three possible settings for this option ON/MDN/OFF.

Receive Notification “ON”

When switched to “ON” a fixed message is sent back to the sending station to indicate successful reception and processing of the message. These fixed messages depend on the operation requested by the sending station.

Report messages consist of SUCCESS : Received From

Receive Notification “MDN”

When switched to “MDN” a report as described above is sent back to the sending station if the originating station sent the “MDN” field to request confirmation.

Receive Notification “OFF”

OFF - Switches all forms of receive notification OFF, no messages are send back to the sending station regardless of the request. 12 - 10 INTERNET FAX (MFC ONLY)

Error mail

If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet Fax, the mail server will send an error message back to the MFC and the error message will be printed. If there is an error while receiving mail, an error message will be printed (Example: “The message being sent to the MFC was not in a TIFF-F format.”).

Important information on Internet Fax

Internet Fax Communication on a LAN system is basically the same as communication via E-mail; however, it is different from Fax communication using standard phone lines. The following is important information for using Internet Fax: ■ Factors such as the receiver’s location, structure of the LAN system, and how busy the circuit (such as the internet) is, may cause the system to take a long time to send back an error mail. (normally 20 sec. to 30 sec.).

■ In the case of transmission through the Internet, due to its low level of security, we recommend that you use standard phone lines to send confidential documents.

■ If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME format, you cannot transmit a document to the receiver. Depending on receiver’s server, there may be some cases in which the error mail will not be sent back.

■ If the size of a document’s image data is huge, there is a possibility of unsuccessful transmission.

■ You cannot change font and character size of Internet mail that you received.

Internet FAX Troubleshooting

Installation problems

If you cannot print over the network, check the following:

1

Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.

Verify that the machine and the configuration are good by printing the machine configuration page. For more information,

see

Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch)

on page 13-4. If the test fails, check:

a

If the LED is not blinking after connected to the network, then the network firmware settings may be corrupted.

b

In this event, try to restore the factory default settings of the

Print/Fax server. To learn how to reset the print server, see

Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch)

on page 13-4. Once you have done that, switch the

machine off and then on again, and try to print out the configuration page.

13 - 1 TROUBLESHOOTING

2

If the configuration 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/Fax server from the host operating system command prompt with the command: ping ipaddress Where ipaddress is the Print/Fax server IP address (note that in some instances it can take up to two minutes for the Print/Fax 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 ® 4.0/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/Fax server is visible to the network, proceed to the Novel NetWare Installation Troubleshooting Section. Otherwise, go to step 3.

c

If you are running AppleTalk for Macintosh:

In case of using Postscript driver make sure that you can see the Print/Fax 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.

TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 2

3

If you cannot make any of the connections in step 2, check the following:

a

Make sure the machine is powered on and on-line.

b

Check the cabling, network connection, and print out a configuration page in the Network STATISTICS information to see if bytes are being transmitted and received.

c

Check to see if there is any LED activity.

The NC-9100h Print/Fax server has two LEDs on the back panel of the machine. The upper side LED shows Link/Speed status. The lower side LED shows Activity (Receive/Transmit) status.

■ ■ ■ No light: If the both of two LEDs are off, then the Print/Fax server is not connected to the network.

Link/Speed LED is orange: Fast Ethernet The Link/Speed LED will be orange if the Print/Fax server is connected to a 100BaseTX Fast Ethernet network.

Link/Speed LED is green: 10BaseT Ethernet The Link/Speed LED will be green if the Print/Fax server is connected to a 10BaseT Ethernet network.

4

If you are using a repeater or hub, make sure that SQE (heartbeat) is turned off at the hub (if applicable). Also, if you have a hub or multi-port repeater, verify that the hub or repeater port is good by trying the Print/Fax 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/Fax server and host computer, make sure that the device is set up to allow the Print/Fax 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/Fax 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/Fax server.

13 - 3 TROUBLESHOOTING

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.

Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch)

■ Short push: Prints a network configuration page.

■ Long push (more than 5 seconds): Resets the network configuration back to factory default setting.

Test Switch LED Ethernet RJ-45 LED

Intermittent Problems

If the Print/Fax 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.

TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 4

TCP/IP Troubleshooting

If you are using TCP/IP and cannot print to the Print/Fax 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 on 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/Fax server (via the configuration 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/Fax server is enabled.

3

If you used rarp, make sure that you started the rarp daemon on any workstation using the rarpd, rarpd-a, or equivalent command. Verify that the matches the name in the /etc/ethers /etc/hosts file contains the correct Ethernet address and that the Print/Fax server name file.

4

If you used bootp, make sure that you started the bootp daemon on any UNIX workstation and bootp is enabled (i.e., the “#” is removed from the bootp entry) in the /etc/bootptab file is correctly configured.

5

Also verify that host computer and the Print/Fax server are either on the same subnet, otherwise that the router is properly configured to pass data between the two devices.

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.

13 - 5 TROUBLESHOOTING

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 text or PCL jobs are run together, try setting the service (remote printer) with EOT set to string number 2 (E). For example: SET SERVICE BRN_xxxxxx_P1 EOT 2

7

If PostScript jobs fail to print or are run together, try setting the service (remote printer) with EOT set to string number 3 (control-D). For example: SET SERVICE BRN_xxxxxx_P1 EOT 3

8

If the lines of a text file are staggered, make sure that you have specified a remote printer (rp) name of TEXT in your /etc/ printcap file.

TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 6

9

If you are using Sun Solaris V2.4 or earlier, there is a bug which causes long print jobs to fail when using a Printer/Fax server. If you are having trouble printing long jobs (over 1MB), add the line mx#0 to your etc/printcap file entry.

10

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/Fax servers.

Windows NT

®

4.0/LAN Server (TCP/IP) Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble printing with Windows NT ® 4.0 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 ® 4.0 system or the LAN Server file server.

2

If you are using DHCP and you have not created a reservation for the Print/Fax server, make sure that you enter the NetBIOS name of the Print/Fax server in the

2

Make sure that the Print/Fax 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/Fax server to appear in the network neighborhood. TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 8

Brother Internet Print (TCP/IP) Troubleshooting

1

The first step in troubleshooting is to make sure that you have a valid E-mail connection on both the sending PC and the receiving Print/Fax server. Try sending an E-mail message from the PC to a user at the remote site who can receive mail via the POP3 server. If this does not work, there may be an E-mail configuration problem on the PC, on the local E-mail server, or on the remote POP3 server. Double check to make sure that the E-mail parameters that you configured on the PC and on the remote Print/Fax server match those that are configured on the E-mail servers.

2

If you can print small files OK but are having problems printing large files, the problem may be in the E-mail system. Some E-mail systems have difficulties printing large files. If the file does not reach its destination intact, then the problem is with the E-mail system.

3

You can also enable the partial E-mail print facility on your client PC, this will split the E-mail up into fragments which should then not overwhelm your E-mail server. To do this, select the property dialog of the Brother Internet Print Port.

95/98/Me/2000/XP IPP Troubleshooting

Want to use a different Port number other than 631

If you are using Port 631 for IPP printing, you may find that your firewall may not let the print data through. If this is the case, use a different port number (port 80), or configure your Firewall to allow Port 631 data through.

To send a print job using IPP to a printer using Port 80 (the standard HTTP port) enter the following when configuring your Windows ® 2000/XP system.

http://ip_address/ipp 13 - 9 TROUBLESHOOTING

You must be using version 4.0 or later of Internet Explorer and the

Microsoft Internet Print Services

software must be installed on your client computers.

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/Fax 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 machine 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.

TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 10

1

If you changed the login password, you must change the password in both the Brother Print/Fax 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 and BRConfig instead of BRAdmin Professional utility, make sure that you have enabled at least one NetWare file server using the SET NETWARE SERVER servername ENABLED command.

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/Fax server, and make sure it is defined as a Queue Server for the print queue.

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/ Fax 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/Fax 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

In case of using Postscript driver, 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.

13 - 11 TROUBLESHOOTING

2

Make sure that the AppleTalk protocol of the Print/Fax 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/Fax 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, a web browser.

DLC/LLC Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble printing with DLC/LLC, check the following:

1

Make sure that the DLC/LLC protocol is enabled using either BRAdmin Professional utility, a web browser or TELNET.

2

Make sure that the MAC address of the Windows ® setting is the same as shown in the

network configuration page

printout.

Web Browser Troubleshooting (TCP/IP)

1

If you can not connect to the Print/Fax 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/Fax server. This will stop your PC from trying to connect to your ISP or proxy server every time you wish to look at the Print/Fax 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.

TROUBLESHOOTING 13 - 12

Internet Fax Troubleshooting

.

3

If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME format, you cannot transmit a document to the receiver. Depending on the receiver's server, there are some cases that the error mail will not be sent back.

4

Messages cannot be received in an HTML format. This format is not supported. All messages must be received in a TIFF-F Format.

5

If the size of a documents image data is huge, there is a possibility of unsuccessful transmission if the system administrator has imposed a limit on the maximum size of E mails and their attachments. The document you are sending should be separated into smaller documents that will be accepted by the mail server. (Ex. A 42 page document of the CCITT#1 test chart is approximately 1Mbyte in size).

6

If you do not receive E-mail, check the Auto Polling setting and Polling frequency.

7

If you cannot retrieve mail from the mail server, check the settings for the POP3 server and Mailbox name. Check that the POP3 password is entered correctly. This setting is case sensitive.

8

If Relay Broadcast is not forwarding E-mail to a G3 Fax, check the Relay Broadcast settings and Relay Domain registration. A Relay Domain must be entered for this function to work.

13 - 13 TROUBLESHOOTING

9

The Relay Broadcasting and Broadcasting features cannot be used at the same time.

10

Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum of 48 Fax machines through conventional telephone lines. If sending to more than 48 locations the sender must divide the transmission locations into 48 locations or less for each relay broadcast.

11

When receiving E-mail messages from the POP3 server, the machine can receive a maximum of 32 mail messages. If there are more than 32 mail messages in the POP3 server, the machine will receive a maximum of 32 mail massages and then receive the remaining after the next polling interval.

12

The NC-9100h Print / Fax Server requires a portion of the user memory for operation. With the NC-9100h installed the number of Fax sheets that can be sent or received will be reduced (by approximately 30 pages of the brother No1 Test Chart) from the standard machine capacity.

Brother Internet Fax Printing Software

Overview

Depending on your network configuration and application requirements for sending faxes via a network, you can choose between Brother Network PC FAX Software or Brother Internet Fax Printing Software. With either software, viewable document such as web pages, word documents, PDF documents can be sent from the users desktop to any standard Facsimile machines, Internet fax machines and E-mail addresses.

Brother Internet Fax Printing Software (BFP) is a Windows ® 95/98/ Me, Windows NT ® 4.0 and Windows ® 2000/XP software utility that gives network PC Fax and Internet Fax functionality from the desktop to users on your network or over the Internet.

BFP utilizes SMTP as the transport for sending documents from your PC. This allows any PC supported by a SMTP mail server to send an Internet FAX even if that PC does not have direct access to the networked machine.

Brother Network PC Fax Software utilizes LPR as the transport for sending documents from your PC to the networked machine for transmission. This requires that the sending PC has access to the network that the sending machine is connected.

In order for the machine to receive data from the desktop and then send this information (network fax) to other fax machines the “Relay Broadcast Function” must be switched “ON”. Also you must tell the networked machine which networks can relay faxes through your machine. This is known as setting the “Trusted Domain”. For instance, if a network machine has an E-mail address of [email protected] and users of this machine also have E-mail addresses with the same domain name then the machine must be told to allow these users to send network faxes through the machine. This is known as the “Relay Function” and “Trusted Domains”. So we set the trusted domain as brother.com

“Trusted Domains” Provide security for your machine. In that only users from a particular domain can send faxes through your network connected machine.

General Information

You can change the configuration of your Print/Fax server using any of the following methods.

• Brother BRAdmin Professional utility for Windows ® 95/98/ Me / 2000/XP and Windows NT ® 4.0.

• Brother Web BRAdmin Professional utility for IIS* • HTTP (using a web browser) • WebJetAdmin Software

BRAdmin Professional utility (Recommended)

The Brother BRAdmin Professional utility can use the TCP/IP or IPX/ SPX protocol. This utility allows you to graphically manage aspects of the network and printer. It can also be used to upgrade the firmware of the Print/Fax server.

Web BRAdmin

The Web BRAdmin software is designed to manage all LAN/WAN Brother network connected devices. By installing the Web BRAdmin server software on a computer running IIS*, Administrators with a Web browser can connect to the Web BRAdmin server, which then communicates with the device itself. Unlike the BRAdmin Professional utility - which is designed for Windows computer with a web browser that supports Java.

® systems only - the Web BRAdmin server software can be accessed from any client Please note this software may not be included on the CD-ROM that was supplied with your Brother product. If it was not, please visit http://solutions.brother.com/webbradmin to learn more about this software and to download it.

IIS* = Internet Information Server 4.0 or 5.0

APPENDIX A - 1

HTTP (Recommended)

Use your favorite web browser to connect to the Brother Print/Fax server. This will allow you to configure machine and/or Print/Fax server parameters.

WebJetAdmin

Brother's Print/Fax server range is HP WebJetAdmin compatible.

A - 2 APPENDIX

Appendix B

APPENDIX A - 3

Appendix C

Reloading the Print / FAX Server Firmware

General

The firmware on the Print/Fax server is stored in flash memory. This means that you can upgrade the firmware by downloading the appropriate update file. To get the latest firmware update, visit the Brother Solutions web site at http://solutions.brother.com/ The Print / Fax server supports multiple MFC models so when inserted into the machine the version of the NC-9100h hardware is checked against the firmware of your machine. If the firmware for your NC-9100h has been superseded with a later version of firmware for your model a message is displayed on the LCD.

Please update your firmware

.

Some software versions that we provide will automatically factory reset your Print/Fax server parameters. We try to avoid doing this. However, if we add a significant new feature to our Print/Fax server, it can result in the Print/Fax server being factory reset.

Because of this, we STRONGLY recommend that you make a note of the current Print/Fax server configuration before you upgrade. To

do this, print out a configuration page. For more information, see

Resetting the Print/Fax Sever back to factory settings (Test Switch)

on page 13-4.

There are three methods of upgrading the firmware in your Brother Print/Fax server:

1

Use the BRAdmin Professional utility

(Recommended)

2

Use the FTP protocol

(Recommended if running on Macintosh or Unix network)

3

Use another system (such as a Novell or Unix system to send the new firmware file to the Print/Fax server).

A - 4 APPENDIX

Reloading firmware using BRAdmin Professional utility

The BRAdmin Professional utility can be used to easily re-program your Brother Print/Fax server.

1

Start BRAdmin Professional utility.

2

Highlight the appropriate Print/Fax server. Then press select the Control menu and choose Load Firmware. You can select more than one Print/Fax server by pressing

CTRL

+ on each additional Print/Fax server.

There are three possible ways of sending the new software version to the print server. For whichever method you select, you must enter a password for the print server. The default password for the Print/Fax server is access .

3

TFTP PUT from this host Use this method if you have TCP/IP already installed on your PC. BRAdmin Professional utility will use the TFTP protocol to send the new firmware data to the Print/Fax server.

4

TFTP GET from a server If you have a TFTP server installed in your network (many Unix systems provide TFTP support), you may wish to use this option. The new firmware file must be located in the TFTP BOOT directory on your TFTP server. In this case, your PC makes the Print/Fax server read the firmware data from the assigned TFTP server. If you do not provide the correct file name, then the upgrade will fail. You must also ensure that the firmware file is set so that the Print/Fax server can read the file. On Unix systems you can use the

chmod

command to specify file attributes. For example, chmod filename 666 TFTP service is running on your Unix server.

allows the filename to be accessed by anyone. Also make sure that the APPENDIX A - 5

5

Netware GET from a server You must have a Netware server on your network (running IPX/ SPX) and you must store the new firmware file in the SYS/Login directory of the server. In this case, your PC makes the Print/Fax server read the firmware data from the assigned Netware server, the Print/Fax server attaches to the Netware server and reads the firmware itself.

After sending firmware to the machine, do not turn off the machine until after the machine has performed an automatic restart.

Reloading using the FTP Protocol from a command prompt

By specifying the Print/Fax server PASSWORD AS THE USERNAME when logging on, it becomes possible to upgrade the firmware of the Print/Fax server or printer (if supported). The following example assumes that the Print/Fax server password is cambridge D:\>ftp ftp> open 220.0.250.200

Connected to 220.0.250.200.

220 FTP print service:V-1.05/Use the network password for the ID if updating.

User (220.0.250.200:(none)): cambridge 230 User cambridge logged in.

ftp> bin 200 Ready command OK.

ftp> hash Hash mark printing on ftp: (2048 bytes/hash mark) .

ftp> send brnt261.blf

200 Ready command OK.

150 Transfer Start ################################################# ######## ################################################# ################################################# ################################################# ########################### 226 Data Transfer OK/Entering FirmWareUpdate mode.

ftp: 1498053 bytes sent in 8.52Seconds 175.77Kbytes/sec.

ftp> close 226 Data Transfer OK.

A - 6 APPENDIX

ftp> quit When you see 226 Data Transfer OK/Entering FirmWareUpdate mode , you can be sure that the firmware file is being transferred to the Print/Fax server. If you do not see this message, the file you are sending to the printer will either be ignored or the printer will print garbage.

You must use the “bin” command to put the FTP client into Binary communications mode. If you do not specify the

bin

command the upgrade process will not function correctly.

APPENDIX A - 7

Appendix D

Updating other MFC’s through the Network

It is possible to program Brother MFC’s on the network with either settings from an already programmed MFC or with data from the Brother Network PC-FAX Address Book. See Chapter 6 of the Software User’s Guide on the CD-ROM.

When Brother Network PC-FAX in used from a PC that has BRAdmin Professional installed, an extra option appears in BRAdmin. By selecting a networked machine in the BRAdmin main window and right clicking it you will be presented with an extra option,

Import Auto Dial

Start

,

Programs

,

Brother

,

MFL-Pro Suite

,

PC-FAX Address Book

. It is necessary to run the address book utility to create an address book file.

A - 8 APPENDIX

When you select this option BRAdmin reads the telephone settings from that machine (if there are any programmed) into Brother PC FAX Address Book. Illustrated below is the Brother Address Book, on the left are One Touch / Speed-Dial numbers read from the machine. On the right is the Brother Address Book. It is now possible to allocate One-Touch / Speed-Dial numbers from the MFC into the Brother Address Book and also use members of the Brother Address Book and send them to the MFC. You can now make changes to the data in the Brother Network PC-FAX Address Book and click OK.

This data is then stored in the Windows ® Temp Folder and can be used to update singular or multiple MFC’s on the network. APPENDIX A - 9

Highlight singular or multiple networked Brother MFC’s in the main BRAdmin window by highlighting and pressing the shift key on your keyboard. Right click the highlighted MFC’s and press

Send Auto Dial

. The new data is then sent to all the highlighted MFC’s.

A dialog box is displayed showing the upload status of current MFC and beneath this the whole progress is displayed if updating multiple MFC’s.
