IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) is a security
protocol that uses an optional Internet
Protocol function to prevent manipulation and
ensure the confidentiality of data transmitted
as IP packets. IPsec encrypts data carried
over the network, such as print jobs sent from
computers to a printer. Because the data is
encrypted at the network layer, applications
that use a higher-level protocol use IPsec
even if the user is not aware of its use.
Setting Lock lets you set a password to stop
other people from accidentally changing your
machine’s settings.
IPsec supports the following operations:
Machine settings cannot be changed through
the Remote Setup utility while Setting Lock is
On.
 IPsec transmissions
 IPsec settings
Make a careful note of your password. If you
forget it, you will have to reset the passwords
stored in the machine. Contact your
administrator or Brother Customer Service.
While Setting Lock is On, you cannot access
the machine's settings.
For more information about IPsec,
see Software and Network User's Guide.

A two-line telephone system is nothing more
than two separate telephone numbers on the
same wall outlet. The two telephone numbers
can be on separate jacks (RJ11) or combined
into one jack (RJ14). Your machine must be
plugged into an RJ11 jack. RJ11 and RJ14
jacks may be equal in size and appearance
and both may contain four wires (black, red,
green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in
a two-line telephone and see if it can access
both lines. If it can, you must separate the line
for your machine.
5
Dialing and storing numbers
Converting telephone wall outlets
5
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11
jack. The first two ways may require
assistance from the telephone company. You
can change the wall outlets from one RJ14
jack to two RJ11 jacks. Or, you can have an
RJ11 wall outlet installed and slave or jump
one of the telephone numbers to it.
The third way is the easiest: Buy a triplex
adapter. You can plug a triplex adapter into
an RJ14 outlet. It separates the wires into two
separate RJ11 jacks (Line 1, Line 2) and a
third RJ14 jack (Lines 1 and 2). If your
machine is on Line 1, plug the machine into
L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on
Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triplex adapter.
a
Place the two-line TAD and the two-line
telephone next to your machine.
b
Plug one end of the telephone line cord
for your machine into the L2 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the LINE jack on the back of the
machine.
c
Plug one end of the first telephone line
cord for your TAD into the L1 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the L1 or L1/L2 jack of the two-line TAD.
d
Plug one end of the second telephone
line cord for your TAD into the L2 jack of
the two-line TAD. Plug the other end into
the EXT. jack on the left side of the
machine.

Installing machine, external two-line
TAD and two-line telephone
When you are installing an external two-line
telephone answering device (TAD) and a
two-line telephone, your machine must be
isolated on one line at both the wall jack and
at the TAD. The most common connection is
to place the machine on Line 2, which is
explained in the following steps. The back of
the two-line TAD must have two telephone
jacks: one labeled L1 or L1/L2, and the other
labeled L2. You will need at least three
telephone line cords, the one that came with
your machine and two for your external
two-line TAD. You will need a fourth line cord
if you add a two-line telephone.

You can keep two-line telephones on other

wall outlet. You can plug the telephone line
cord from the two-line telephone into the
L1+L2 jack of the triplex adapter. Or, you can
plug the two-line telephone into the TEL jack
of the two-line TAD.

Additional dialing

Dialing access codes and
credit card numbers
5

Sometimes you may want to choose from
several long-distance carriers when you send
a fax. Rates may vary depending on the time
and destination. To take advantage of low
rates, you can store the access codes of longdistance carriers and credit card numbers as
Address Book numbers. You can store these
long dialing sequences by dividing them and
setting them up as separate Address Book
numbers in any combination. You can even
include manual dialing using the dial pad
(see Basic User's Guide).
For example, you might have stored ‘555’ on
Address Book: Brother 1 and ‘7000’ on
Address Book: Brother 2. You can use them
both to dial ‘555-7000’ if you press the
following:

To temporarily change a number, you can
substitute part of the number by pressing it on
the dial pad. For example, to change the
number to ‘555-7001’, you could enter the
number (Brother 1: 555) using Address Book,
press Apply and then press 7001 on the dial
pad.
NOTE
If you must wait for another dial tone or
signal at any point in the dialing sequence,
create a pause in the number by pressing
Pause. Each key press adds a
3.5-second delay. You can press Pause
as many times as needed to increase the
length of the pause.

Routine maintenance
Cleaning and checking
the machine
Clean the outside and inside of the machine
regularly with a dry, lint-free cloth. When you

toner, clean the inside of the machine with a
dry, lint-free cloth.
A
IMPORTANT
A
• Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with
volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine
will damage the surface of the machine.

• DO NOT use isopropyl alcohol to remove
dirt from the control panel. It may crack the
panel.
WARNING
• DO NOT put a toner cartridge into a fire.
It could explode, resulting in injuries.
• DO NOT use flammable substances,
any type of spray, or an organic
solvent/liquid containing alcohol or
ammonia to clean the inside or outside

p
Read following information from the
drum dot check sheet.
 Dot color problem:
The color of printed dots is the color
of the drum you should clean.
 Dot location:
The sheet has eight numbered
columns. The number of the column
with the printed dots in it is used to
find the dot position on the drum.
77
q
Use the numbered markers next to the
drum roller to find the mark. For
example, a cyan dot in column 2 on the
check sheet would mean that there is a
mark in the “2” region of the cyan drum.
r
Identify the drum indicated by the
colored dot in step q. Hold the drum
unit frame with both hands, place your
left thumb on the drum unit gear, and roll
the drum toward you, as illustrated in the
drawing below. Look in the numbered
area identified in step q for any marks
or scratches.
