BRAdmin Professional and Web BRAdmin are available as a download from http://solutions.brother.com.
To use the Brother machine through a network, you need to configure the print server, and set up the
computers you use.
For Wireless Users:
To achieve optimum results with normal every day document printing, place the Brother machine as close to
the network access point (or router) as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of
your documents.
1
Introduction
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics,
you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer, or USB for the fastest throughput
speed.
Although Brother MFC-9840CDW can be used in a both wired and wireless network, only either one of the
connection methods can be used at a time.

Introduction
Types of network connections
1
1
Network connection example
1
Generally there are two types of network connections. Peer-to-Peer and Network Shared environment.
Peer-to-Peer printing using TCP/IP
1
In a Peer-to-Peer environment, each computer directly sends and receives data to each device. There is no
central server controlling file access or printer sharing.
Windows
R
Windows
TCP/IP
R
Windows
R
TCP/IP
1 Switch or Router
2 Network printer (your machine)
„ In a smaller network of 2 or 3 computers, we recommend the Peer-to-Peer printing method as it is easier
to configure than the Network Shared printing method described on the following page. See Network
Shared printing on page 6.
„ Each computer must use the TCP/IP Protocol.
„ The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration.
„ If you are using routers, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother
machine.
„ The Brother machine can also communicate with Macintosh®. (TCP/IP compatible operating systems)
5
Introduction
Network Shared printing
1
In a Network Shared environment, each computer sends data via a centrally controlled computer. This type
of computer is often called a “Server” or a “Print Server”. Its job is to control the printing of all print jobs.
1 Client computer
2 Also known as “Server” or “Print server”
3 TCP/IP or USB (where available)
4 Printer (your machine)
„ In a larger network, we recommend a Network Shared printing environment.
„ The “server” or the “print server” must use the TCP/IP print protocol.
„ The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration unless the machine is
connected via the USB interface at the server.

Before using your Brother machine on your network, you must install the Brother software and also configure
the appropriate TCP/IP network settings on the machine itself. To do this, we recommend that you use the
automatic installer on the Brother CD-ROM as this will guide you through the software and network
installation.
If you do not wish to use the automatic installer, or you do not understand some of the terms used by the
automatic installer, refer to the remainder of this chapter for more information.
Note
If you do not wish to, or are unable to use the automatic installer or any of Brother’s software tools, you
can also use the machine’s control panel to change network settings. For more information, see Control
panel setup on page 77.
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
2
To use the machine in a networked TCP/IP environment, you need to configure the IP address and subnet
mask. The IP address you assign to the print server must be on the same logical network as your host
computers. If it is not, you must properly configure the subnet mask and the gateway address.
IP address
2
An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each computer connected to a network. An IP address
consists of four numbers separated by dots. Each number is between 0 and 255.
„ Example: In a small network, you would normally change the final number.
192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3
How the IP address is assigned to your print server:
2
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network (typically a UNIX®/Linux or Windows® 2000/XP,
Windows Vista™ or Windows Server® 2003 network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may be the router.
For more information on DHCP, BOOTP and RARP, see Using DHCP to configure the IP
address on page 169, Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 170 and Using RARP to configure
the IP address on page 171.
12
Configuring your machine for a network with an Ethernet cable connection
If you do not have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server, the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol will
automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. For more information on
APIPA, see Using APIPA to configure the IP address on page 171.
If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the 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. For information
on how to change the IP address, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 14.
Subnet mask
2
2
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
„ Example: Computer1 can talk to Computer 2
• Computer 1
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
• Computer 2
IP Address: 192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Note
0 denotes that there is no limit to communication at this part of the address.
In the above example, we can communicate with anything that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.x.
Gateway (and router)
2
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the
network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a
destination is located at an external network, the router transmits data to the external network. If your network
communicates with other networks, you may need to configure the Gateway IP address. If you do not know
the Gateway IP address then contact your Network Administrator.

Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, you need to follow the steps in the Quick Setup Guide.
We recommend that you use the Setup Wizard from the machine’s control panel LAN menu. By using this
method, you can easily connect your machine to your wireless network. Please follow the instructions in the
supplied Quick Setup Guide.
3
Please read this chapter for more details on how to configure the wireless network settings. For information
on TCP/IP settings, see Using the BRAdmin Light utility to configure your machine for the network printer
on page 14. Then, in Network printing from Windows®: basic TCP/IP Peer-to-Peer printing on page 111 and
Network printing from Macintosh® on page 118, you will learn how to install the network software and drivers
into the operating system running on your computer.

Configuration using SecureEasySetup™
3
If your wireless access point (A) supports SecureEasySetup™, you do not need to use a computer to
configure the printer. The access point (router) and your machine can automatically negotiate using the
SecureEasySetup™ procedure.
3
Configuration temporarily using a network cable
3
If there is an Ethernet Hub or Router in the same network as the wireless access point of your machine, you
can temporarily connect the Hub or Router to the machine using an Ethernet cable (B), this is an easy way
to configure the machine. You can then remotely configure the machine from a computer on the network.
22

Wireless network terms and concepts
3
When you configure the wireless network machine, you must ensure that your wireless network machine is
configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of main terms
and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network machine.
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
3
You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
SSID
3
Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
(Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
Channels
3
Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. When configuring your
Brother device to work in a wireless network, you must set it to the channel that is used on the wireless
network that you are connecting to. There are up to 14 different channels that can be used when using a
wireless network. However, in many countries the number of channels available are restricted. For further
information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 176.
23
Configuring your machine for a wireless network
Authentication and encryption
3
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication
(how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device,
it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these
options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your
Brother wireless device supports.
Authentication methods
3
3
The Brother machine supports the following methods:
„ Open system
Wireless devices are allowed access to the network without any authentication.
„ Shared key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
The Brother machine uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
„ WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK
Enables a Wi-Fi® Protected Access Pre-shared Key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK), which enables the Brother
wireless machine to associate with access points using TKIP for WPA-PSK or AES for WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK encryption (WPA-Personal).
„ LEAP
Cisco® LEAP (Light Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Cisco Systems, Inc. which
uses user ID and password for authentication.
Encryption methods
3
Encryption is used to secure the data that is sent over the wireless network. The Brother machine supports
the following encryption methods:
„ None
No encryption method is used.
„ WEP
By using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the data is transmitted and received with a secure key.
„ TKIP
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) provides per-packet key mixing a message integrity check and rekeying mechanism.
„ AES
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is Wi-Fi® authorized strong encryption standard.
„ CKIP
The original Key Integrity Protocol for LEAP by Cisco Systems, Inc.
24
Configuring your machine for a wireless network
Network key
3
There are some rules for each security method:
„ Open system/Shared key with WEP
This key is a 64-bit or 128-bit value that must be entered in an ASCII or hexadecimal format.
64 (40) bit ASCII:
Uses 5 text characters.
3
e.g. “WLLAN” (this is case sensitive)
64 (40) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data.
e.g. “71f2234aba”
128 (104) bit ASCII:
Uses 13 text characters.
e.g. “Wirelesscomms” (this is case sensitive)
128 (104) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal data.
e.g. “71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa2ba”
„ WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and TKIP or AES
Uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that is 8 or more characters in length, up to a maximum of 63 characters.
„ LEAP
Uses User ID and Password.
• User ID: up to a maximum of 63 characters
• Password: up to a maximum of 31 characters

• If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT
Method to Static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from
trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT Method, use the machine’s
control panel, BRAdmin Professional utility, Remote Setup or Web Based Management (web browser).
• You cannot change the BOOT method using the BRAdmin Light utility that was supplied on the CD-ROM
with your Brother product. Please use the latest BRAdmin Professional utility that is available as a
download from http://solutions.brother.com. This utility is only available for Windows® users.

Auto mode
6
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
be 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. If a
BOOTP server is not available, the machine will scan for a RARP server. If a RARP server also does not
answer, the IP Address is scanned through APIPA facility, see Using APIPA to configure the IP
address on page 171. After it is initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the
network for a server.
Static mode
6
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
RARP mode
6
The Brother print server IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) service on your host
computer. For more information on RARP, see Using RARP to configure the IP address on page 171.
BOOTP mode
6
BOOTP is an alternative to RARP that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. For more information on BOOTP, see Using BOOTP to configure the IP address on page 170.
DHCP mode
6
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network (typically a UNIX®, Windows® 2000/XP, Windows
Vista™ network) the print server will automatically obtain its IP address from a DHCP server and register its
name with any RFC 1001 and 1002 compliant dynamic name services.

IP Address
6
This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have chosen a BOOT Method of Static, enter
the IP address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). If you have chosen a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its IP
address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your machine will probably be
incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your
network administrator for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.

Fax to Server
6
The Fax to Server feature allows the machine to scan a document and send it over the network to a separate
fax server. The document will then be sent from the server as fax data to the destination fax number over
standard phone lines. When the Fax to Server feature is set to ON all automatic fax transmissions from the
machine will be sent to the fax server for fax transmission. You can continue to send a fax directly from the
machine using the manual fax feature (For more information, see Sending a fax manually in the User’s
Guide).
To send a document to the fax server the correct syntax for that server must be used. The destination fax
number must be sent with a prefix and a suffix that match the parameters used by the fax server. In most
cases the syntax for the prefix is “fax=” and the syntax for the suffix would be the domain name of the fax
server E-mail gateway. The suffix must also include the “@” symbol at the beginning of the suffix. The prefix
and the suffix information must be stored in the machine before you can use the fax to server function.
Destination fax numbers can be saved in the One-Touch or Speed Dial locations or entered using the dial
pad (up to 20 digit numbers). For example if you wanted to send a document to a destination fax number of
123-555-0001 the following syntax would be used.

Internet fax
13
Overview
13
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
computers are also able to receive and send documents, providing that the computer has as an application
that can generate and view TIFF-F files, you can use Microsoft® Imaging or a TIFF-F viewer application. Any
documents sent via the machine will automatically be converted into a TIFF-F format. If you wish to send and
receive messages to and from your machine, your mail application on the computer must be able to support
the MIME format.

You can use the Dial Pad to dial the E-mail address. For more information, Entering Text on page 186.
Please note that also you can connect to the machine using a web browser and specify the E-mail address
information through Web Based Management. Web Based Management on page 121 for more information.
As you enter the Internet fax address, the address will appear character by character on the LCD panel. If
you specify more than 22 characters, the LCD panel will scroll the name to the left character by character.
You can enter up to 60 characters.
(For US) Press Black Start or Color Start to send the document.
(For UK) Press Mono Start or Colour Start to send the document.
After the document is scanned, it is transmitted to the recipient Internet fax machine automatically via your
SMTP server. You can cancel the send operation by pressing the Stop/Exit button during scanning. After the
transmission is finished, the machine will return to standby mode.
Some E-mail servers do not allow you to send large E-mail documents (the system administrator will often
place a limit on the maximum E-mail size). You can enable the Limit Size of the Sent Mail feature. The
machine will display Out of Memory when trying to send E-mail documents over 1 Mbyte in size. The
document will not be sent and an error report will be printed. The document you are sending should be
separated into smaller documents that will be accepted by the mail server. You can enable this feature
through the Web Management utility or the LAN function mode.
Receiving E-mail or Internet fax
13
There are 2 ways you can receive E-mail messages:
„ POP3 receiving (manually initiated)
„ POP3 receiving at regular intervals
Using POP3 receiving the machine must poll the E-mail server to receive the print jobs. This polling can occur
at set intervals (for example, you can configure the machine to poll the E-mail server at 10 minute intervals)
or you can manually poll the server by pressing the Shift + Black/Mono Start or Color/Colour Start button.
If your machine 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 E-mail(S)”. If you press the Shift + Black/Mono Start
or Color/Colour 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 machine will display No Mail on the LCD panel for two seconds.
If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received data will be held in the machine's memory.
This data will be printed automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine. (For European, Asian and
Oceanic machines, 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
Delete POP Receive Error Mail is ON (default)” then error mail is automatically deleted from the E-mail server
127

Receiving an Internet fax to your computer
13
When a computer receives an Internet fax document, the document is attached to a mail message that
informs the computer that it has received a document from an Internet fax. This is notified in the subject field
of the received mail message.
If the computer to which you wish to send a document is not running Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Server®
2003 or Windows Vista™ operating system, please inform the computer's owner that they must install some
software that can view TIFF-F files.
You can use “Microsoft® Imaging” that is supplied with Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Server® 2003 and
Windows Vista™.
Forwarding received E-mail and fax messages
13
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 computer or Internet fax. They can also be forwarded
via standard phone lines to another machine.
The setting can be enabled using the web browsers or through the machine front panel. The steps for
configuring fax forward can be found in the User’s Guide supplied with your machine.
Please see the User’s Guide included with the machine to check that this feature is supported.
Relay broadcasting
13
This function allows the Brother machine 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 machine as a relay broadcast device, you must specify the domain name that you trust
at the machine, 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 bob@brother.com,
then we identify the domain as brother.com. If the E-mail address is jack@brother.co.uk, 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.

UKFAX@brother.co.uk(fax#123456789)
In this example, your machine has an E-mail address of FAX@brother.com, you wish to send a document
from this machine to another machine in England with an E-mail address of UKFAX@brother.co.uk, this
machine will then forward the document to a standard fax machine using a conventional telephone line. If
your E-mail address is FAX@brother.com, you must configure a trusted domain name of brother.com on the
machine in England that will broadcast the document to the conventional fax machine. 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 machine in the @brother.com domain.
After the trusted domain is set you can send the document from your machine [I.E. FAX@brother.com] by
entering the E-mail address of the machine [I.E. UKFAX@brother.co.uk] 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
13
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.
13
To use this feature you must set the Notification option within the Setup Mail RX and
Setup Mail TX options.
130
Internet fax
Setup Mail TX
13
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 machine 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
13
There are three possible settings for this option On, MDN or 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 <mail address>
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 message are sent back to the sending station regardless
of the request.
Error mail
13
If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet fax, the mail server will send an error message back
to the machine 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 machine was not in a TIFF-F format.”).

Important information on Internet fax
13
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.

„ CA (Certificate Authority)
A CA is an entity that issues digital certificates (especially X.509 certificates) and vouches for the binding
between the data items in a certificate.
„ CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
A CSR is a message sent from an applicant to a CA in order to apply for issue of a certificate. The CSR
contains information identifying the applicant, the public key generated by the applicant and the digital
signature of the applicant.
„ Certificate
A Certificate is the information that binds together a public key with an identity. The certificate can be used
to verify that a public key belongs to an individual. The format is defined by the x.509 standard.
„ Digital signature
A Digital signature is a value computed with a cryptographic algorithm and appended to a data object in
such a way that any recipient of the data can use the signature to verify the data's origin and integrity.
„ Public key cryptosystem
A Public key cryptosystem is a modern branch of cryptography in which the algorithms employ a pair of
keys (a public key and a private key) and use a different component of the pair for different steps of the
algorithm.
„ Shared key cryptosystem
A Shared key cryptosystem is a branch of cryptography involving algorithms that use the same key for two
different steps of the algorithm (such as encryption and decryption).

using the ISP’s SMTP server. By changing the SMTP port number to a specific number which your SMTP
server decide (for example, port 587), you can still send an E-mail via the SMTP server you currently use.
You will also need to check SMTP-AUTH of SMTP Server Authentication Method to enable the SMTP
server authentication.
• If you can use both POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH, we recommend choosing SMTP-AUTH.
• If you choose POP before SMTP for the SMTP Server Authentication Method, you need to configure the
POP3 settings. You can also use the APOP method.

Security features
Creating and installing a certificate
14
The Brother print server allows you to use SSL/TLS communication by configuring a certificate and
corresponding private key. This print server supports two certification methods. A self-signed certificate and
a certificate that is issued by a CA (Certificate Authority).
„ Using self-signed certificate
This print server issues its own certificate. Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS
communication without having a certificate from a CA. See Creating and installing a self-signed certificate
on page 143.
„ Using a certificate from a CA
There are two methods for installing a certificate from a CA. If you already have a CA or if you want to use
a certificate from an outside trusted CA:
• When using a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from this print server. See Creating CSR and installing
a certificate on page 155.
• When importing a certificate and a private key. See Import and export the certificate and private key on
page 157.
Note
• If you are going to use SSL/TLS communication, we recommend that you contact your system
administrator before using.
• This print server stores only one pair of a certificate and a private key that you installed or previously
imported. This printer overwrites the certificate and the private key if you install a new one.
• When you reset the print server back to its default factory settings, the certificate and the private key that
are installed will be deleted. If you want to keep the same certificate and the private key after resetting the
print server, export them before resetting and re-install them. See How to export the certificate and private
key on page 158.
This feature can be configured using Web Based Management (web browser) only. Follow these steps to
access the configure certificate page using Web Based Management.
a
b
Start your web browser.
Type “http://printer’s IP address/” into your browser. (where “printer’s IP address” is the printer’s IP
address or the node name.)

„ For example:
http://192.168.1.2/ (if the printer’s IP address is 192.168.1.2.)
http://BRN123456/ (if the printer’s node name is BRN123456.)
141
Security features
Note
If you have edited the hosts file on your computer or are using a Domain Name System, you can also enter
the DNS name of the print server. As the print server supports TCP/IP and NetBIOS, you can also enter
the NetBIOS name of the print server. The NetBIOS name can be seen in the Network Configuration List.
To learn how to print the Network Configuration List, see Printing the Network Configuration List on
page 105. The NetBIOS name assigned is the first 15 characters of the node name and by default it will
appear as “BRNxxxxxx” for a wired network or “BRWxxxxxx” for a wireless network (where “xxxxxx” is the
last six digits of the Ethernet address).

Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 IPP
troubleshooting
15
I want to use a different Port number other than 631.
15
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, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 system.
http://ipaddress/ipp
The “Go to printer’s Web site” option in Windows® XP and Windows Vista™ is not working
The “Get More Info” option in Windows® 2000 and Windows Server® 2003 is not working
15
If you are using a URL of:
http://ipaddress:631 or http://ipaddress:631/ipp,
the Get More Info option in Windows ® 2000/XP, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 will not
function. if you wish to use the Get More Info option, use the following URL:
http://ipaddress
This will then force Windows® 2000/XP, Windows Vista™ and Windows Server® 2003 to use Port 80 to
communicate with the Brother print server.
Web browser troubleshooting (TCP/IP)
15
a
If you can not connect to the print server using your web browser it may be worth checking the Proxy
Settings of your browser. Looking in the Exceptions setting and if necessary, type in the IP address of
the print server. This will stop your computer from trying to connect to your ISP or proxy server every
time you wish to look at the print server.
b
Make sure that you are using the proper web browser, we recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0®
(or greater) or Firefox ® 1.0 (or greater) for Windows® and Safari™ 1.0 for Macintosh®. Please also make
sure that JavaScript and Cookies are always enabled in whichever browser you use. We recommend
you upgrade to Safari™ 1.2 or greater to enable JavaScript. If a different web browser is used, make

Where “xxxxxx” is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for example, BRN310107_P1).
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
administrators)
A
For information on how to configure your machine for a network using the BRAdmin Light utility, see Setting
the IP address and subnet mask on page 14.
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
A
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server in your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT
Method to static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying
to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT Method, use the machine’s
control panel LAN menu, BRAdmin application, Remote Setup or Web Based Management (web browser).
169
Appendix A
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address
A
BOOTP is an alternative to RARP that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running
on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service; type man
bootpd or refer to your system documentation for information). BOOTP is usually started up via the
/etc/inetd.conf file, so you may need to enable it by removing the “#” in front of the bootp entry in that
file. For example, a typical bootp entry in the /etc/inetd.conf file would be:
#bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i
Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”.
Note
In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already
enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network
type (1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the print server.
Unfortunately, the exact format for doing this is not standardized, so you will need to refer to your system
documentation to determine how to enter this information (many UNIX® systems also have template
examples in the bootptab file that you can use for reference). Some examples of typical /etc/bootptab
entries include: (“BRN” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
BRN310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.168.1.2:
Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included
a download filename in the configuration file. If this is the case, simply create a null file on the host and specify
the name of this file and its path in the configuration file.
As with RARP, the print server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the printer is powered on.
170
A
Appendix A
Using RARP to configure the IP address
A
A
The Brother print server’s IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (RARP) facility on your host
computer. This is done by editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an
entry similar to the following: (“BRN” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
00:80:77:31:01:07
BRN310107
Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the print server and the second entry is the name of the print
server (the name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file).
If the RARP daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system the command can be rarpd,
rarpd -a, in.rarpd -a or something else; type man rarpd or refer to your system documentation for
additional information). To verify that the RARP daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX® based system, type
the following command:
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX®-based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Brother print server will get the IP address from the RARP daemon when the printer is powered on.
Using APIPA to configure the IP address
A
The Brother print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, DHCP
clients automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server is not available. The
device chooses it's own IP address in the range 169.254.1.0 through to 169.254.254.255. The subnet mask
is automatically set to 255.255.0.0 and the gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0.
By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled. If you want to disable the APIPA protocol, you can disable it using
control panel of the machine. For more information, see APIPA on page 83.
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.
Using ARP to configure the IP address
A
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can
also use the ARP command. The ARP command is available on Windows® systems that have TCP/IP
installed as well as UNIX® systems. To use ARP enter the following command at the command prompt:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
ping ipaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address) of the print server and ipaddress is the
IP address of the print server. For example:
171
Appendix A
„ Windows® systems
A
Windows® systems require the dash “-” character between each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
ping 192.168.1.2
„ UNIX®/Linux systems
Typically, UNIX® and Linux systems require the colon “:” character between each digit of the Ethernet
address.
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
ping 192.168.1.2
Note
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the print server and
operating system) to use the arp -s command.
If there is a router, you may use BOOTP or other methods described in this chapter to enter the IP
address.If your administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP or
RARP your Brother print server can receive an IP address from any one of these IP address allocation
systems. In which case, you will not need to use the ARP command. The ARP command only works once.
For security reasons, once you have successfully configured the IP address of a Brother print server using
the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The print server will
ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use a Web Based Management
(web browser), Telnet (using the SET IP ADDRESS command) or factory reset the print server (which will
then allow you to use the ARP command again).
Using the Telnet console to configure the IP address
A
You can also use the Telnet command to change the IP address.
Telnet is an effective method to change the machine’s IP address. But a valid IP address must already be
programmed into the print server.
Type Telnet <command line> at the command prompt of the system prompt, where <command line>
is the IP address of the print server. When you are connected, push the Return or Enter key to get the “#”
prompt. Enter the password “access” (the password will not appear on the screen).
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to this prompt.
You will then get the Local> prompt. Type SET IP ADDRESS ipaddress, where ipaddress is the
desired IP address you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.3
You will now need to set the subnet mask by typing SET IP SUBNET subnet mask, where subnet mask
is the desired subnet mask you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for
the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default subnet masks:
172
Appendix A
255.0.0.0 for class A networks
A
255.255.0.0 for class B networks
255.255.255.0 for class C networks
The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this
group ranges from 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.168.1.4).
If you have a gateway (router), enter its address with the command SET IP ROUTER routeraddress,
where routeraddress is the desired IP address of the gateway you wish to assign to the print server. For
example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.168.1.4
Type SET IP METHOD STATIC to set the method of IP access configuration to static.
To verify that you have entered the IP information correctly, type SHOW IP.
Type EXIT or Ctrl-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type “D”) to end the remote console session.

Appendix A
Using the Brother Web BRAdmin server software for IIS to configure the IP
address
A
The Web BRAdmin server software is designed to manage all LAN/WAN Brother network connected devices.
By installing the Web BRAdmin server software on a computer running IIS 1, 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® systems only, the Web BRAdmin server
software can be accessed from any client computer with a web browser that supports Java.
Please note this software is not included on the CD-ROM that was supplied with your Brother product.
