Unix Printing

Printing from Unix/Linux Using TCP/IP
Overview
Brother print servers are supplied with the Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite. Since virtually all
UNIX host computers support TCP/IP, this capability allows a printer
to be shared on a UNIX Ethernet network. 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, you can turn the setting off by using control
panel buttons to access APIPA in the TCP/IP setting of the
NETWORK menu. If the APIPA protocol is disabled, the default
IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. To change
it, use the printer control panel, the BRAdmin Professional, Web
BRAdmin software or let your DHCP server allocate an IP
address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
1 - 1 UNIX PRINTING
4 The default name for a Brother print server is usually
BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address of the print server).
5 When configuring the PRINTCAP file, pay particular attention to
the service names, BINARY_P1 and TEXT_P1.
TCP/IP
Brother print servers appear to the network as a UNIX host computer
with a unique IP address running the lpd (line printer daemon)
protocol. As a result, any host computer that supports the Berkeley
remote LPR command can spool jobs to Brother print servers without
the need for any special software on the host computer. For special
applications, raw TCP ports are also available.
Brother print servers also support the FTP protocol. This protocol can
be used to send print jobs from Unix systems.
The Brother print server is pre-configured to run on a TCP/IP network
with a minimum of setup. The only mandatory configuration of the
print server is the allocation of an IP address, which can be either
automatically assigned using DHCP, BOOTP etc., or manually
assigned using the ARP command, BRAdmin Professional utility, or
the printer control panel.
For setting the IP address of the print server, refer to the
Quick Setup Guide or to chapter 10 of this User’s 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 file on each UNIX host that needs
to communicate with the print server. Use your favorite editor to
add an entry to the /etc/hosts file containing the IP address
and node name of the device. For example:
192.189.207.3
BRN_310107
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 2
The actual format of the entry may vary depending on your system,
check your system documentation and also note the format of other
entries in the /etc/hosts file.
The node name in this file does not necessarily need to be
the same as the one that is actually configured into the
Brother print server (the name that appears on the printer
settings page), however, it is good practice to make the
names the same. Some operating systems, such as HP-UX,
do not accept the "_" character in the default name, for these
systems you must use a different name).
In any case, the node name in the /etc/hosts file must match the
node name in the /etc/printcap file.
Some systems such as HP-UX and AIX allow you to enter the IP
address as the host name when setting up the print queue. If this is
the case, you do not need to configure the hosts file.
2 Choose which print server service you want to use. There are
several types of services available on Brother print 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 server, each one with a different
service name (for example, one queue for binary graphics jobs
and one for text jobs).
1 - 3 UNIX PRINTING
3 Configure the /etc/printcap file on each host computer to
specify the local print queue, the print server name (also called
remote machine or rm), and the print server service name (also
called remote printer, remote queue, or rp), and the spool
directory.
This step applies to the majority of UNIX systems, including
Linux, Sun OS (but not Solaris 2.xx), Silicon Graphics (lpr/lpd
option required), DEC ULTRIX, DEC OSF/1, and Digital
UNIX. SCO UNIX users should follow these steps, but should
also refer to the SCO UNIX Configuration section. Users of
RS/6000 AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris 2.xx, and other systems
that do not use the printcap file should skip to 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.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 4
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.
4 Skip this section if you have completed Step 3, unless you have
an SCO UNIX system.
If you have an HP-UX system, IBM RS/6000 AIX computer, or Sun
Solaris 2.xx, there is no printcap file. This is also true for some other
AT&T-based UNIX systems, as well as many VMS-based TCP/IP
software packages (for example, UCX, TGV Multinet, etc.). On SCO
systems, there is a printcap file, but it is automatically configured by
the rlpconf command. Most of these systems generally use a printer
setup program to define the service name (remote printer), the print
server name (remote machine) or IP address, and the local queue
name (spool directory). Refer to the appropriate section depending
on your version of Unix.
1 - 5 UNIX PRINTING
Linux Configuration
If you do not wish to use the command line interface to configure your
Linux distribution, you may wish to use the Linux Printer System
Manager application on your GUI. To do this, do the following:
1 From the Linux Printer System Manager screen, click the Add
button.
2 You will now be asked to specify which Printer type you are
using, select the Remote Unix (lpd) Queue option and click
OK.
3 You must now specify the remote host name, remote queue
name and the input filter to use.
4 The Remote Host name is the IP address of the printer, or the
name from the hosts file which corresponds to the IP address of
the printer.
5 The Remote Queue name is the service name that the printer
will use when processing the data. Generally we recommend
that you use the name "BINARY_P1", however, if you are
planning to send text documents that do not have a carriage
return and a line feed, then use "TEXT_P1".
6 Select the appropriate Input Filter from the list of available
printers on your particular build of Linux.
In order to make your settings work, select the Restart lpd option.
As soon as the lpd server restarts, you will be able to send printed
documents from your server.
Linux Configuration Using CUPS
Many Linux systems support Common Unix Printing System
(CUPS).
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 6
HP-UX Configuration
In the case of HP-UX10.xx, the sam program is used to set up the
remote printer. The steps are as follows:
1 Execute the sam program. From the list of options, select
Printers and Plotters.
2 Select LP Spooler.
3 Select Printers and Plotters.
4 Select Actions and then Add Remote Printer/Plotter.
5 Enter any name as the Printer Name (this will be the name of
the print queue).
6 Enter the IP address of the print server as the Remote System
Name.
7 Enter the desired print server service name as the Remote
Printer Name.
8 Check the box next to Remote Printer is on BSD system.
9 You may accept the default values for the remaining items.
10 Click OK to configure the printer.
You should now be able to print using the lp-d command with the
printer name.
If you are using the HP distributed print service, the configuration
procedure is slightly different because you are sending the print jobs
to a file server, which in turn spools the job to the print server. You
must therefore know the name of the file server (spooler host) in
addition to the above information. You will add a physical and a
remote printer, and then assign a logical printer to the remote printer
(a unique name that does not match any other name). To print, use
the lp -d command with the logical printer name.
1 - 7 UNIX PRINTING
Earlier versions of HP-UX use similar procedures to 10.xx users:
1 Enter sam and select Peripheral Devices and then Add
Remote Printer (not Networked printer).
2 Enter the following remote printer settings (the other settings do
not matter):
■ Line printer name (user-selectable).
■ Remote system name (the print server name; must match
what is in hosts file or use print server IP address).
■ Remote printer queue (Print server binary or text service
name, e.g. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
■ Remote Printer is on a BSD System (Yes).
IBM RS/6000 AIX Configuration
The RS/6000 AIX operating system uses the smit program to set up
the remote printer. The procedure is as follows for AIX 4.0 and later:
1 Enter smit and select devices.
2 Select Printer/Plotter.
3 Select Print Spooling.
4 Select Add a Print Queue.
5 Select Remote.
6 Enter the following Remote Printer Settings:
Name of queue (user selectable)
Host name of Remote Printer (print server name; must match
name in /etc/hosts file or use the print server IP address)
Name of queue on remote printer (print server binary or text
service name, eg. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
Type of print spooler. BSD (press the LIST button and choose
BSD)
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 8
The procedure for pre-V4.0 systems is as follows.
1 Enter smit and select devices.
2 Select printer/plotter.
3 Select manage remote printer subsystem.
4 Select client services.
5 Select remote printer queues.
6 Select add a remote queue.
7 Enter the following remote queue settings:
■ Name of queue to add (user selectable).
■ Activate the queue (Yes).
■ Destination host (print server name; must match name in /
etc/hosts file or use the print server IP address)
■ Name of queue on remote printer (print server binary or
text service name, eg. BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1).
■ Name of device to add (user selectable; for example lp0).
Sun Solaris 2.x Configuration
Sun Solaris 2.x uses the lpsystem and lpadmin programs for remote
printer configuration:
lpsystem -t bsd prnservername
lpadmin -p queue -s prnservername!prnserverservice
accept queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
enable queue
(not required on newer Solaris systems)
Where queue is the name of the local print queue.
prnservername is the name of the print server (must match the
entry in the /etc/hosts file or IP address).
prnserverservice is the print server BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1
service.
1 - 9 UNIX PRINTING
If this is the first printer configured, you must also use the lpsched
command prior to the accept command.
As an alternative, you may use Printer Manager in the Admintool
utility under OpenWindows. Select Edit, Add, and Add Access to
Remote Printer. Then enter the print server name in the format
prnservername!\prnserverservice as described above.
Make sure that the printer server OS is set to BSD (the default
setting), and click Add.
Note that we recommend that you use the /etc/hosts file for the
printer name rather than NIS or other name services. Also note that
due to a bug in the Sun lpd implementation on Solaris 2.4 and earlier
releases, you may experience problems printing very long print jobs.
If this is the case, a workaround is to use the raw TCP port software
as described later in this chapter.
SCO UNIX Configuration
To configure a printer in version Version 5.x of SCO Unix, use the
SCOADMIN program.
1 Select Printers and then Print Manager.
2 On the menu select Printer and then Add Remote followed by
Unix...
3 Enter the IP address of the print server, and type in the name of
the printer that will be used to spool to.
4 Deselect Use External remote Printing Protocol...
5 To eject the printed page, add the command rp=lpaf to the /
etc/printcap file.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 10
SCO UNIX requires TCP/IP V1.2 or later to work with Brother print
servers. You must first configure the /etc/hosts and /etc/
printcap files as described in step 2. Then run the sysadmsh
program as follows:
1 Select Printers.
2 Select Configure.
3 Select Add.
4 Enter the name of the print queue you entered in the /etc/
printcap file as the Printer name.
5 Enter anything as the Comment, and Class name.
6 For the Use printer interface select Existing.
7 Press the F3 key to get a list of available interfaces, and select
the desired one as the Name of interface using the cursor keys
(Dumb is a good choice).
8 Select Direct as the Connection.
9 Enter the desired Device name (/dev/lp generally works).
10 Select Hardwired as the Device.
11 Select No for the Require banner field.
Older SCO Unix Systems
The Brother print servers support the FTP protocol. Earlier SCO Unix
systems are often configured to print using the FTP protocol.
IBM AS/400
To use a Brother print server with an IBM AS/400 running IBM's TCP/
IP gateways services for OS/400 (the OS/400 system must be v3.1
or later)
Use the CFGTCP command at your OS/400 prompt to add the print
server's TCP/IP address to the AS/400 host table.
1 - 11 UNIX PRINTING
Use the following one-line OS/400 command to create the LPD
queue:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(<queuename> RMSTSYS
(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ(<service>)
AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE (*OTHER)
MFRTYPMDL (<driver>)
INTNETADR('<ipaddress>') TEXT
('<description>')
where <queuename> is the new AS/400 print queue name,
<service> is the print server service name (BINARY_P1 or
TEXT_P1) <driver> is the OS/400 printer driver name (*HP4 is
recommended if in doubt), and <ipaddress> is the IP address of
the print server. Note that the IP address and description must be
enclosed in single quotes.
For example:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(BR1) RMTSYS(*INTNETADR)
RMTPRTQ(BINARY_P1) AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP)
DESTTYPE(*OTHER) MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI)
INTNETADR('10.0.0.200') TEXT('Arnes Printer')
If you are using A4 paper, you may find that the printer page
formatting is incorrect (this is probably because your AS/400 system
is set to Letter sized paper), to resolve this problem, do the following:
Edit the Host Print Transform source code:
RTVWSCST DEVTYPE(*TRANSFORM) MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI)
SRCMBR(HP5SI) SRCFILE(MYLIB/SRC)
At the paper definition, alter the existing hex codes for Letter Size,
1B 26 6C 02 41 to hex codes for A4 Size, 1B 26 6C 32 36 41.
UNIX PRINTING 1 - 12
OS/400 version 4, 5, 5.1
You can also use the following command line to create a printer

RMTLOCNAME('10.0.0.200') SYSDRVPGM(*HPPJLDRV)
TEXT('Arnes Printer')
Other Systems
Other systems use similar programs to set up print servers. These
programs will generally ask for the following information:
Requested information:
You should use:
remote printer
Binary or Text service name
remote host computer name
Any name (must match the
name in the printcap file, if any)
or in some cases, you may enter
the print server IP address here
remote host IP address
IP address of print server.
Technical support specialists for these companies can usually
answer configuration questions if you provide them with the
equivalent UNIX configuration information (tell them that the print
server looks like a remote UNIX host computer running the lpd line
printer daemon).
If you have not created a spool directory for the Brother print server
on your UNIX host computer, you will need to do so now (the printer
setup utilities in HP-UX, AIX, Solaris 2.xx, and other systems will
automatically create the spool directory). The lpd spool directory is
usually located in the /usr/spool directory (check with your
system manager to see if the location is different for your system). To
create a new spool directory, use the mkdir command. For
example, to create a spool directory for the queue laser1, you would
enter:
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/laser1
1 - 13 UNIX PRINTING
On some systems it is also necessary to start the daemon. This is
done on Berkeley-compatible UNIX systems with the lpc start
command as shown in the following example:
lpc start laser1

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 printer 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 the APIPA protocol is disabled, the
default IP address of a Brother print server is 192.0.0.192. To
change it, use the printer control panel (if applicable), the
BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software or let your
DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
1 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
2 Windows NT®4.0 users must install the "Microsoft TCP/IP
printing" protocol (available through the control panel applet).
3 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. For more
information, see Windows® 2000/XP IPP Printing on page 5-10.
2 - 1 TCP/IP PRINTING
4 Windows® 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP
protocol via a Windows® 2000/XP computer providing that the
Microsoft Internet Print Services software is installed on the
client PC, IIS is installed and running on the Windows® 2000/XP
computer and that the client PC is using version 4 or later of
Microsoft Internet Explorer. For more information, see
Windows® 2000/XP IPP Printing on page 5-10.
5 The default name for a Brother print server is usually
BRN_xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address of the print server).
Windows NT®4.0 and Windows® 2000/XP (TCP/IP)
Configuration
If you have not already done so, install the TCP/IP protocol onto your
Windows NT®4.0 system. This is done via the Network icon in the
Control Panel window of the Windows NT®4.0 system (use the
Start button on Windows NT®4.0 to access the Settings/Control
Panel menu). The default configuration of Windows® 2000/XP
automatically installs the TCP/IP protocol. Refer to the appropriate
section in this chapter for more information.
Windows® 2000/XP Printing (Printer Driver not yet
installed)
By default, Windows® 2000/XP systems install with all the necessary
software required for you to be able to print. This chapter describes
the two most commonly used configurations, Standard TCP/IP Port
printing and IPP (Internet Printing Protocol). If you have already
installed the printer driver, jump to the printer driver already
installed section.

9 Windows® 2000/XP will now contact the printer that you
specified. If you did not specify the correct IP address or name
then you will receive an error message.
10 Click the Finish button to complete the Wizard.
11 Now that you have configured the port, you must specify which
printer driver you wish to use. Select the appropriate driver from
the list of supported printers. If you are using a driver supplied
with the printer on CD-ROM then select the Have Disk option to
browse to the CD-ROM. You can also click the Windows
Update button to connect directly to Microsoft's support Web
site to download printer drivers.

LAN Server, OS/2 Warp Server Configuration
Brother print servers will work with IBM LAN Server, OS/2 Warp
Server networks that have IBM TCP/IP V2.0 or later installed on the
file server (TCP/IP is supplied as standard with LAN Server V4.0 and
later as well as Warp Server). Use the following procedure to
configure the print server on an LAN Server or OS/2 Warp Server file
server, or on an OS/2 Warp Connect workstation:
Server Configuration
Make sure that TCP/IP software is installed on your OS/2 file server.
If you have not already done so, open the TCP/IP folder on the
desktop, and double click on the TCP/IP Configuration icon to add
the IP address to the OS/2 file server (consult your system manager
for this address).
Refer to chapter 10 for information on how to assign an IP address
to the printer.
2 - 7 TCP/IP PRINTING
Configuration of an OS/2 Server
1 From the OS/2 desktop open the Templates folder. Use the
right mouse button to drag the Printer icon (not the Network
Printer icon) onto the desktop.
2 The Create a Printer window should be open (if it is not, double
click on the printer icon).
3 Type in any name for the printer.
4 Select the default printer driver. If the desired printer driver is not
listed, click on the Install new Printer Driver button and add the
driver.
5 Choose the output port. IBM TCP/IP automatically creates 8
named pipes called \PIPE\LPD0 through to \PIPE\LPD7.
Pick an unused port and double click on it.
Early versions of Warp Server have a bug in which the
named pipes do not appear (the problem does not affect
Warp Connect or LAN Server). This problem is fixed via a
patch available from IBM.
You will get the Settings window. Enter the following:
LPD server
The Brother print server name (from the
HOSTS file) or its IP address.
LPD printer
For most applications, use the Brother print
server 'binary' service BINARY_P1. However,
if you are printing text files from the DOS or
OS/2 command prompt, you should use the
text service TEXT_P1, which will add carriage
returns for proper formatting of the data (but
will potentially distort graphics printouts).
Host name
The IP name of the OS/2 file server
User
The IP address of the OS/2 file server
You may leave the other entries blank. Click on the OK button. The
pipe should be highlighted; if not, click on it.
Click on the Create button to create the printer.
TCP/IP PRINTING 2 - 8

2 Select Aliases.
3 Select Printers.
4 Select Create. Enter the following:
Alias
Should be same as the printer name
previously defined
Description
Anything you want
Server name
Name of OS/2 server
Spooler queue
Name of printer as defined previously
Maximum number of users
Leave blank unless you want to limit
the number of users
5 Exit the LAN Requester program.
6 You should now be able to print. To test the queue, type the
following from either the OS/2 command prompt or from a DOS
workstation:
7 COPY C:\CONFIG.SYS \\servername\alias
8 Where servername is the name of the file server and alias is
the alias name that you specified during this configuration
process. This should print the CONFIG.SYS file on the printer.
Note that if you selected a binary service as the LPD printer
name, the lines will be staggered; don't worry about this
because normal DOS, Windows®, and OS/2 applications will
print OK.
9 The Brother print server will appear as a standard OS/2 printer
to application programs. To make the print server operate
transparently with DOS programs, execute the following
command on each workstation:
10 NET USE LPT1: \\servername\alias
2 - 9 TCP/IP PRINTING
11 This will make the printer appear to the software as a printer that
is directly connected to the parallel port of the workstation.

How to Print in a Windows® 95/98/Me
Peer to Peer Network
Overview
Microsoft's Windows® 95/98/Me operating systems feature built-in
networking capabilities. These capabilities allow a Windows® PC to
be configured as a client workstation in a file server based network
environment.
For smaller networks, Windows® 95/98/Me also allows the PC to
operate in a peer-to-peer mode. In this mode, the PC can share
resources with other PCs on the network without the need for a
central file server.
Quick Tips:
1 The 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. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
3 - 1 PEER TO PEER PRINTING
4 Windows® 95/98/Me users can send print jobs using the IPP
protocol via a Windows® 2000 computer providing that the
Microsoft Internet Print Services software is installed on the
client PC, IIS is installed and running on the Windows® 2000
and that the client PC is using version 4 or later of Microsoft
Internet Explorer.
5 Brother printers are also compatible with HP JetDirect software,
this means that you can use HP utilities to manage and to print
to your Brother printer.
Driver Deployment Wizard
This installer includes the Windows® PCL driver and Brother network
port driver (LPR and NetBIOS).
If the administrator then installs the printer driver and port driver
using this software, he can save the file to the File server or send the
file in E-mail to users. Then, each user just clicks that file to have the
printer driver, port driver, IP address, and so on, automatically copied
to their PC.
For more information, see the Driver Deployment Wizard User’s
Guide on the CD-ROM.
TCP/IP Printing
Our Peer to Peer printing software requires the TCP/IP protocol to be
installed on your Windows® peer-to-peer computers and an IP
Address has to be defined for the print server. Refer to your
Windows® documentation for more information on how to configure
the TCP/IP protocol on your Windows® PC.
If you haven't already done so, configure the IP address of the
printer, for more information on IP address configuration, refer to
chapter 10 of this User’s Guide.

Server
Overview
Brother print server range supports SMB (server message block)
over the TCP/IP protocol via the NetBIOS interface. This means that
just like regular Windows® PC's, Brother printers can appear in your
network neighborhood. The main advantage of NetBIOS printing is
that you are able to print from legacy DOS applications that are
running on PC's that are connected to Microsoft networks.
Quick Tips:
1 The 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. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4 The default domain name of the print server is WORKGROUP, to
change it use your web browser or the BRAdmin application.
NETBIOS PEER TO PEER PRINTING 4 - 1
Print Server Configuration
In order for this function to work, you must correctly change the
domain name or workgroup name to match that of your network.
Once this is done, the print server will appear automatically in your
network neighborhood and you will be able to send print documents
to it without having to install additional software. However, in some
instances you may find that your Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and
Windows NT®4.0 systems may receive "Printer is busy" error
messages when more than one person attempts to access the
printer. In this instance Brother has provided the "Brother NetBIOS
Port Monitor" software which allows users to continue spooling print
jobs while the printer is busy, down or out of paper. The port monitor
will hold the jobs until the printer is again available.
When you install Windows® 95/98/Me you are asked which
workgroup you belong to. The default workgroup name for Windows®
95/98/Me is WORKGROUP, however you could change this to anything
you want. With Windows NT®4.0, Microsoft introduced the concept
of "Domains". A domain offers centralized security management
whereas a workgroup offers distributed security management. The
print server does not care if your network consists of a Workgroup or
a Domain, the only thing you must tell it is the name of the workgroup
or domain. The Brother print server automatically has a default
workgroup/domain name of WORKGROUP. If you need to change
name, you can configure the Brother print server to recognize this.
There are four ways of doing this. (If you are unsure about the name
of your workgroup or domain, look in the identification tab in your
network applet).
■ Use BRAdmin (This utility can use the TCP/IP protocol or NetWare
IPX protocol - no file server necessary.)
■ Use a Web browser (the print server must have a valid IP address
and your computer must also have a valid IP address); you can
configure the IP address by using BRAdmin.
■ TELNET, again your computer and printer must have a valid IP
address.
■ Use BRCONFIG for DOS (this utility requires a NetWare file server
and the IPX protocol).
4 - 2 NETBIOS PEER TO PEER PRINTING
Because of the way that Microsoft networks work, the print
server may take several minutes to appear in the network
neighborhood. You will also find that the print server may
take several minutes to disappear from the network
neighborhood even if the printer is switched off. This is a
feature of Microsoft workgroup and domain based networks.
Changing the Workgroup/Domain Name Using
TELNET or BRCONFIG or a Web Browser
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application, you can use
TELNET, a web browser or the BRCONFIG Remote console
program (BRCONFIG requires the IPX/SPX protocol to be installed
on your PC).
When you are connected to the print server, enter the default
password access in response to the # prompt. Type in anything in
response to the Enter Username> prompt, you will then be at the
Local> prompt.
Now enter the command:
SET NETBIOS DOMAIN domainname
EXIT
Where domainname is the name of the domain or workgroup that
you are on. If you are not sure what your domain name or workgroup
name is, look in the Identification tab in your Windows® 95/98/Me
and Windows NT®4.0 network applet.
You can also use a standard WWW browser to change the NetBIOS
name. To do this, connect to the print server using its IP address and
then select the Configure NetBIOS option from the Network
Configuration screen, then enter your workgroup/domain name into
the Domain Name text box. Make sure you submit the changes
(click on the Submit button).

Printing for Windows®
Internet Printing Installation
Overview
Brother's Brother Internet Print (BIP) software, for Windows® 95/98/
Me and Windows NT®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
Paris.
Windows® 2000/XP users can also use this BIP software, but are
recommended to use the IPP protocol support that is part of the
Windows® 2000/XP operating systems. Skip to the "Windows® 2000
IPP Printing" section of this document.
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 the APIPA protocol is
disabled, the default IP address of a Brother print server is
192.0.0.192. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
4 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 MIMEencoded (converted to a standard Internet E-mail message) and sent
out to a Brother print 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 Email 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 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 server.
CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS® 5 - 2
■ At the remote site, an E-mail server receives the E-mail message.
The remote print 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 Server
The print server can be configured using BRAdmin, by using a web
browser, or by using the TELNET command.
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 server (generally, the mail account name will be
the first part of the E-mail address; for example, if you assign the
E-mail address emailprinter@xyz.com, then the mail account
name would be emailprinter).
2 Make sure that the print 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.

Brother Internet Print: Using BRAdmin to
Configure the Print Server
Skip this section if you wish to use the print server remote
console or Web Browser to configure the print server.
Using the BRAdmin Professional utility, you can configure
the Brother print server using the TCP/IP protocol, or the IPX
protocol.
The steps required to configure the print server to receive print jobs
from a Windows® 95/98/Me/2000/XP and Windows NT®4.0 PC
running the BIP software is as follows:
1 Start BRAdmin.
2 Select the node name of the desired Brother print server from
the list and double click on it. (the default node name is usually
BRN_xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address (MAC address)). You will be prompted for a
password; the default password is access.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing
out the printer settings page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide
for information on how to print the settings page on your print
server.
3 Click on the POP3/SMTP tab.
4 Enter the address of the POP3 server (consult your network
administrator if you do not know this address).
5 Enter the mailbox name for the remote Brother print server.
Usually this will be the first part of the E-mail address (for
example, if the E-mail address of the print server is
emailprinter@xyz, then the mailbox name would be
emailprinter).
6 Enter the password for the mailbox, if any.
CONFIGURING INTERNET PRINTING FOR WINDOWS® 5 - 4
7 The print server is configured by default to poll the POP3 server
every 30 seconds. You may change this value, if desired.
8 If you have enabled notification, enter the address of your SMTP
server (consult your network administrator if you do not know
this address).
9 Click the OK button and save the changes. Now exit the
BRAdmin application. You have now configured the print server
to receive print jobs.
Brother Internet Print: Using a Web Browser to
Configure the Print Server
1 Connect to the print server IP address using your web browser.
2 When you reach the network configuration screen, you will be
prompted for a password. The default password is "access".
3 Select the Configure POP3/SMTP option and enter the
information as described above. Refer to "Brother Internet Print:
Using a Web Browser to Configure the Print Server".
4 You should see a Segmented Message Timeout option. If a print
job is separated into multiple E-mail messages using the Partial
E-mail Print feature of the BIP, this value indicates how long the
print server will wait for all of the segments of the message to
arrive.

How to Configure Novell NetWare
Printing
Overview
Brother print servers allow NetWare client PCs to print jobs on the
same printer as TCP/IP or other network protocol users. All NetWare
jobs are spooled through the Novell server and delivered to the
printer when it is available.
Quick Tips:
1 If you create a NDPS Printer for Netware 5, you have to
configure the IP address of the print server in advance.
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. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
6 - 1 NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING
General Information
In order to use a Brother print server on a NetWare network, one or
more file servers must be configured with a print queue that the print
server can service. 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 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
application.
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 application.
You must install the Novell NetWare Client 32 if you wish to create
queue information on your NetWare servers using the BRAdmin
application.
If you can't use the BRAdmin application 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 the
Brother BRCONFIG utility, TELNET or a WWW browser to configure
the print server.
Brother print servers can service up to 16 file servers and 32 queues.
NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING 6 - 2
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 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,
see the Other Sources of Information section at the end of
this chapter.
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.
3 Browse to a server (which has NDPS installed but no NDPS
manager installed) where you want to install the NDPS manager
and then to the volume you want the NDPS manager database
assigned to. Click create.

NDPS Broker
When NDPS is installed, an NDPS broker is loaded onto the network.
One of the Broker services Resource Management Service allows
Printer Drivers to be installed onto the server for use with Printer
Agents.
To add a Printer Driver to the Broker:
1 Make sure the Resource Management Service is enabled.
2 Open the Broker Object's main window in NetWare
Administrator
3 Select the Resource Management view.
4 The Resource Management dialog appears. Select the Add

Me or NT4.0 driver for NetWare 5 (Additionally, a Windows®
2000 driver is available for NetWare 5.1). If you are using NDPS
version 1 with NetWare 4.x, only 3.1x and 95/98/Me options will
be available. NDPS version 2 for NetWare 4.x will support
Windows NT®4.0 drivers automatic download.
6 A complete list of currently loaded resources of that type
appears in the Current Resources window. Click the Add
button.
7 The Add <resource type> dialog appears. The listed resources
that appear on this screen are currently installed.

Printing from a Macintosh® Using
AppleTalk® and TCP/IP or the Simple
Network Configuration capabilities of
Mac OS® X.
Overview
Brother print servers support the AppleTalk protocol running over
Ethernet (also known as EtherTalk). This allows Macintosh® users to
print at the same time as all other Ethernet network using the
AppleTalk (also referred to as EtherTalk) protocol.
With the release of System 8.6 or later, Apple introduced a TCP/IP
printing capability. This allows Macintosh® users to send print jobs
using the TCP/IP protocol.
With the release of Mac OS® X 10.2, Apple® introduced Simple
Network Configuration capabilities. These Simple Network
Configuration capabilities support automatic network configuration. If
you choose to use the the Simple Network Configuration capabilities
features of your Brother product, you usually do not need to
configure any IP address settings yourself.

Brother Solutions web site at: http://solutions.brother.com
7 - 1 PRINTING FROM A MACINTOSH®
Quick Tips:
1 The default name that will appear in the Chooser of a
Macintosh® will usually be BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT (where
xxxxxx is the last 6 digits of the Ethernet address)
2 From a Macintosh® network, the easiest way to change this name
is to assign an IP address to the printer and then use a Web
browser to change the name. Connect to the printer using a web
browser and then click on Network Configuration. Enter the
password (the default password is access) then select
Configure AppleTalk. Click on BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT,
then on Service Name. Enter the new name that you wish to
appear in Chooser. Then click on Submit.
3 Mac OS® 8.6 or later supports TCP/IP printing.
4 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
5 Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for information on how to
print the printer settings page on your print server.
6 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. To change it, use the printer control panel
(if applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web
BRAdmin software or let your DHCP server allocate an
IP address to the printer.
PRINTING FROM A MACINTOSH® 7 - 2
Macintosh® Configuration (Mac OS® 8.6 to 9.2)
Your Brother Printer is compatible with the standard Apple LaserWriter
8 printer driver (earlier versions of the LaserWriter drivers may crash
or cause PostScript errors on large networks). If you do not have the
LaserWriter 8 driver you must install it. Consult your Macintosh®
documentation for instructions on how to do this.
Before you try to use the Brother print server, you must first enable
the EtherTalk protocol from the Network Control Panel on the
Macintosh®. If the EtherTalk protocol is not selected, or the Network
Control Panel does not exist, you must use Apple's Network
Installer software to add these capabilities.
The appropriate PPD file supplied with your printer must first be
installed. Insert the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive of your
computer. Open the Mac OS 9 folder. Open your language folder.
Double click the BR-Script PPD Installer icon to install the PPD file.
Follow the on-screen instructions.

Printing from Windows NT®4.0 or
Windows® 2000
Overview
DLC is a simple protocol that is included in Windows NT®4.0 and
Windows® 2000 as standard. It can be used on other operating
systems (such as Windows® 3.x) with the addition of vendor-supplied
software that supports the Hewlett-Packard JetDirect card.
Quick Tips:
1 One way to print the details of all network settings is to print a
settings page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for information on
how to print the settings page.
Because DLC is a non-routable protocol, there cannot be a
router between the print server and the sending computer.
Configuring DLC on Windows® NT4.0 and
Windows® 2000
To use DLC on Windows NT®4.0, you must first install the DLC
protocol.
1 Log into Windows NT®4.0 with administrative privileges. Go to
the Windows NT®4.0 Control Panel and double click on the
Network icon. Windows® 2000 users select the properties of
the Local Area Connection.
2 On Windows NT®4.0 systems, click on the Protocol tab, and
click Add. Windows® 2000 users click the Install button from
the General tab.

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 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 server should automatically
appear during the configuration process.
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.
8 - 4 DLC PRINTING
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.

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 printer 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 Take control of the printer’s control panel.
3 Software version information of the printer and print server.
4 Change network and printer settings details.
You must use the TCP/IP protocol on your network and have a valid
IP address programmed into the print server and your computer.
Quick Tips:
1 The 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. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
9 - 1 WEB BASED MANAGEMENT
4 You can use a web browser on most computing platforms, for
example, Macintosh® and Unix users are also able to connect to
the printer and manage it.
5 You can also use the BRAdmin application to manage the
printer and its network configuration.
How to Connect to Your Printer Using a Browser
Type http://printer’s IP Address / into your browser (you
can also use the NetBIOS name of the print server, if you are in a
Microsoft® Windows® domain/Workgroup environment). Enter the
DNS name of the printer if connecting to a network that uses the DNS
protocol.

10 TCP/IP Configuration
10
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 printer’s control panel settings (if your printer has an
LCD panel).
■ BRAdmin application (for Windows® 95/98/Me, Windows NT®4.0
and Windows® 2000/XP, using the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols).
■ DHCP, APIPA, Reverse ARP (rarp) or BOOTP.
■ The ARP command.
■ Brother BRCONFIG NetWare utility (a Novell Network is
necessary).
■ TELNET.
■ HTTP (Web browser).
■ Other SNMP based management utility.
10 - 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
These configuration methods are described in the following paragraphs.
The IP address you assign to the print server must be on the
same logical network as your host computers. If it is not, you
must properly configure the subnet mask and the router
(gateway).
Using the Printer Control Panel to Allocate an IP
Address (Printers with LCD Panels Only)
Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for details on how to configure IP
address information using the printer control panel. By using the
control panel on the printer, you can program the IP address details
at the same time that other printer parameters are configured.
Changing the IP Address Using the BRAdmin
Application
Please use BRAdmin Professional version 1.59 or later.
Start the BRAdmin application (from Windows® 95/98/Me, Windows
NT®4.0 and Windows® 2000/XP).
The BRAdmin application can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols
to communicate with the Brother print server.
If you wish to use the TCP/IP protocol to manage the print server
make sure that the print server has a valid 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 find the Brother print
server as an unconfigured device.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 10 - 2
Using BRAdmin and the IPX/SPX Protocol to Set
the IP Address
If your PC is using the Novell NetWare Client software and is using
the IPX/SPX protocol, do the following:
1 Select IPX/SPX filter in the left frame of the main window.
2 Check the print server name (the default node name is
BRN_xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the
Ethernet address (MAC address)).
If you cannot find your server name, select the Device menu and
choose Search Active Devices (you can also press the F4 key) and
try again.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing
out the printer settings page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide
for information on how to print the settings page on your print
server.
3 Select the print server that you wish to configure and double
click it. You will be asked for a password. The default password
is access.
4 Select the TCP/IP tab and set the IP address, Subnet mask
and Gateway as needed.
5 In the IP Config box, click the Static radio button.
6 Click OK.
Restart the print server by using BRAdmin, Web Browser or
TELNET. If you are not sure how to restart the print server, you may
simply turn the printer’s power switch off, and then switch it on.
10 - 3 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using BRAdmin and the TCP/IP Protocol to Set
the IP Address
If your PC is using the TCP/IP protocol, do the following:
1 Select TCP/IP filter in the left frame of the main window.
2 Select the Device menu and choose the Search Active
Devices.
If the print server is set to its factory default settings, it will not
appear in the BRAdmin screen. However, selecting the
Search Active Devices option will force the BRAdmin
Professional utility to find the device as an unconfigured
device.
3 Select the Device menu and choose Setup Unconfigured
Device.
4 Select the MAC address of your print server and click the
Configure button.
You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the
printer settings page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for information
on how to print the settings page on your print server.
5 Enter the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway (if needed)
of your print server.
6 Click OK then select Close.
7 With the correctly programmed IP address, you will see the
Brother print server in the device list.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 10 - 4
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 or Novell NetWare network) the print server will
automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and register
its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name
services.
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 printer’s control panel (for those printers that have a
LCD panel), TELNET (using the SET IP METHOD
command), a Web browser or by using the BRAdmin
application.
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.
10 - 5 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using ARP to Configure the Print Server IP
Address
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application or the printer’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® 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
Where ethernetaddress is the Ethernet address (MAC address)
of the print server and ipaddress is the IP address of the print
server. For example:
Windows® Systems
Windows® systems require the hash "-" character between each digit
of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.189.207.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
Unix/Linux Systems
Typically, Unix and Linux systems require the colon ":" character
between each digit of the Ethernet address.
arp -s 192.189.207.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 10 - 6
T
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 Browser, TELNET
(using the SET IP ADDRESS command) the printer’s control
panel or factory reset the print server (which will then allow you to
use the ARP command again).
To configure the print server and to verify the connection,
enter the following command ping ipaddress where
ipaddress is the IP address of the print server. For
example, ping 192.189.207.2.
10 - 7 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
Using RARP to Configure the IP Address
The Brother print server’s IP address can be configured using the
Reverse ARP (rarp) facility on your host computer. This is done by
editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can
create it) with an entry similar to the following:
00:80:77:31:01:07
BRN_310107
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.
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 10 - 8
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 /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".
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_310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.189.207.3
and:
BRN_310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\
ip=192.189.207.3:
10 - 9 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
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.
Configuring the IP Address with BRCONFIG
Users of Novell networks have additional alternatives for configuring
the IP address of Brother print servers by using the remote console
facility.
On a NetWare network, you can use the BRCONFIG utility which is
included with every print server.
Execute BRCONFIG from the Windows® menu. Select the
corresponding server name from the list of print servers. When you
get the message that the print server is connected, type the default
password access in response to the “#” prompt.
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 manager for the
IP address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.189.207.3
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
manager for the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 10 - 10
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default
subnet masks:
255.255.255.0
255.255.0.0
255.0.0.0
for class C networks
for class B networks
for class A 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 192
through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.189.207.3), 128 through
191 for Class B networks (e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 1 through 127 for
Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1).
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 192.189.207.1
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 CTR-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type "D")
to end the remote console session.
Changing the IP Address Settings with the
TELNET Console
You can also use the TELNET command to change the IP address.
Using TELNET is effective way, when you change the IP address. But
a valid IP address must already be programmed into the print server.
If you are using the TELNET, you will be expected to enter the
password of the print server. Press RETURN and enter the default
password of access in response to the "#" prompt (it will not echo).
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to
this prompt.
10 - 11 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION
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 manager for the
IP address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.189.207.3
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
manager for the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default
subnet masks:
255.255.255.0
255.255.0.0
255.0.0.0
for class C networks
for class B networks
for class A 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 192
through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 192.189.207.3), 128 through
191 for Class B networks (e.g.,128.10.1.30), and 1 through 127 for
Class A networks (e.g., 13.27.7.1).
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 192.189.207.1
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 CTR-D (i.e., hold down the control key and type "D")
to end the remote console session.

Overview
This chapter describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you
may encounter with a Brother print server, it is divided into the
following sections:
1 Installation Problems
2 Intermittent Problems
3 Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting
Installation Problems
If you cannot print over the network, check the following:
1 Make sure that the printer is powered on, is on-line and ready to
print.
Verify that the printer and the configuration are good by printing
the printer settings page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide. If the
test fails, check:
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 server by pressing the Network Test Button on the back
of the printer for more than 5 seconds. Once you have done
that, turn off the printer and then on again. You can check the
settings by printing the printer settings page.
TROUBLESHOOTING 11 - 1
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 server from the host operating system
command prompt with the command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the print server IP address (note that in
some instances it can take up to two minutes for the print
server to load its IP address after setting the IP address). If a
successful response is received, then proceed to the UNIX,
TCP/IP Windows NT®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 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®:
Make sure that you can see the print server name under the
LaserWriter 8 icon in the Chooser. If it is visible, then the
connection is good, so proceed to the AppleTalk for
Macintosh® Section. Otherwise, go to step 3.
11 - 2 TROUBLESHOOTING
3 If you cannot make any of the connections in step 2, check the
following:
a Make sure the printer 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.
Brother print servers have two LEDs on the back panel of the
printer. 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 server is not
connected to the network.
■ Link/Speed LED is orange: Fast Ethernet
The Link/Speed LED will be orange if the print server is
connected to a 100BaseTX Fast Ethernet network.
■ Link/Speed LED is green: 10BaseT Ethernet
The Link/Speed LED will blink if the print server is receiving or
transmitting data.
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 server on a different port or on the
other hub or multi-port repeater.
5 If you have a bridge or router located between the print server
and host computer, make sure that the device is set up to allow
the print server to send and receive data from the host. For
example, a bridge can be set up to only allow certain types of
Ethernet addresses to pass through (a process known as
filtering); therefore, such a bridge must be configured to allow
Brother print server addresses. Likewise, a router can be set up
to pass only certain protocols, so be sure that the desired
protocol can be passed through to the print server.
TROUBLESHOOTING 11 - 3
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.
Intermittent Problems
If the print server and printer start up OK, but you intermittently have
problems printing, check the following:
1 If you can print small jobs but large graphics jobs are distorted
or incomplete, make sure that you have adequate memory in
your printer and the latest printer driver installed on your
computer. The latest Brother printer drivers can be downloaded
from http://solutions.brother.com
2 Check the individual protocol troubleshooting sections in this
chapter for additional causes of intermittent printer problems.
TCP/IP Troubleshooting
If you are using TCP/IP and cannot print to the print server and you
have checked the hardware and network as described in the
previous steps, then check the following:
It is always a good idea to try following in order to eliminate
the possibility of setup errors.
Turning off the printer and then again,
Deleting and recreating the print server and creating a new print
queue in order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors.
1 The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP
address. Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the
print server (via the 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).
11 - 4 TROUBLESHOOTING
2 If you used BRCONFIG, NCP or to enter the IP address, make
sure that you exited the remote console properly with a CTRLD or EXIT and that you turned the printer off and then again (it
may take up to two minutes for the IP address to take effect).
3 Make sure that the TCP/IP protocol of the print server is
enabled.
4 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 /etc/ethers file contains the
correct Ethernet address and that the print server name
matches the name in the /etc/hosts file.
5 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.
6 Also verify that host computer and the print server are either on
the same subnet, otherwise that the router is properly
configured to pass data between the two devices.
UNIX Troubleshooting
1 Make sure that the /etc/printcap file (if applicable) is typed
in correctly. In particular, look for missing ":" and "\" characters,
because a small error anywhere in the file can have major
consequences. Also check the /usr/spool directory to make
sure that you have created a valid spool directory.
2 If you are using a Linux operating system, the X-Window Print
tool program that is included with Linux may not properly
configure the etc/printcap file for lpd operation, then you might
also edit the etc/printcap file and change the following line in the
entry for the printer.
if
:lp = /dev/null: \
then to
:lp = :\
TROUBLESHOOTING 11 - 5
3 If you are using a Berkeley-based UNIX, make sure that the
daemon is started on Berkeley based systems with the
command lpc start printer, where printer is the name of the local
print queue.
4 If you are using an AT&T-based UNIX, make sure the printer is
enabled (enable printer, where printer is the name of the local
print queue).
5 Make sure that the lpr/lpd remote line printer service are running
on the host computer (refer to your host computer
documentation for information on how to do this).
6 If you are having trouble printing more than one job at a time, try
increasing the IP timeout using the SET IP TIMEOUT
command or using BRAdmin.
7 If text or PCL jobs are run together, try setting the service
(remote printer) with EOT set to string number 2 (<ESC>E). For
example:
SET SERVICE BRN_xxxxxx_P1 EOT 2
8 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
9 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.
10 If you are using Sun Solaris V2.4 or earlier, there is a bug which
causes long print jobs to fail when using a print server. If you are
having trouble printing long jobs (over 1MB), add the line mx#0
to your etc/printcap file entry.
11 If you cannot print from DEC TCP/IP Service for VMS (UCX),
make sure that you have version 2.0B or later of this software,
because earlier versions will not work with Brother print servers.
11 - 6 TROUBLESHOOTING
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® system or the LAN Server file
server.
2 If you are using DHCP and you have not created a reservation
for the print server, make sure that you enter the NetBIOS name
of the print server in the Name or address of server providing
lpd box.
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer to Peer Print (LPR)
Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-toPeer network (LPR method), check the following:
1 Make sure that the Brother LPR Port driver is correctly installed
and configured according to the Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-toPeer chapters.
2 Try to turn the Byte Count on in the Configure port area of
printer driver properties.
You may find that during the installation of BLP software, the screen
that prompts you for a Port name is not displayed. This may happen
on some Windows® 95/98/Me computers. Press the ALT and TAB
keys to make it appear.
TROUBLESHOOTING 11 - 7
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer (HP JetAdmin
Compatible Method) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-toPeer network, check the following (HP JetAdmin compatible
method):
1 If the print server does not show up under JetAdmin on a
Windows® 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer network, try removing all of
the Windows® 95/98/Me network software from the Network
Control panel and then reinstalling them as follows:
■ First install the IPX/SPX-Compatible Protocol (or the TCP/IP
protocol if you are using a later version of JetAdmin), the
Client for Microsoft Networks, and the network adapter card
driver.
■ Install the Latest HP JetAdmin software.
■ Restart the system, and then add the HP JetAdmin service.
Windows® 95/98/Me and Windows NT®4.0 Peer-toPeer Print (NetBIOS) Troubleshooting
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows® 95/98/Me, Windows
NT®4.0 or later Peer-to-Peer network (NetBIOS), check the
following:
1 Make sure that the Brother NetBIOS Port driver is securely
installed and configured according to the Windows® 95/98/Me or
Windows NT®4.0 Peer-to-Peer (NetBIOS) chapters. You may
find that during the installation of the port driver, the screen that
prompts you for a Port name is not displayed. This happens on
some Windows® 95/98/Me and Windows NT®4.0 computers.
Press the ALT and TAB keys to make it appear.
2 Make sure that the print server is configured to be in the same
workgroup or domain as the rest of your computers. It may take
several minutes for the print server to appear in the network
neighborhood.
11 - 8 TROUBLESHOOTING
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 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 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 Email systems have difficulties printing large files. If the file does
not reach its destination intact, then the problem is with the Email 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.
Windows® 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
TROUBLESHOOTING 11 - 9
Get More Info option in Windows® 2000 not working
If you are using a URL of:
http://ip_address:631 or http://ip_address:631/ipp,
the Get More Info option in Windows® 2000 will not function. If you
wish to use the Get More Info option use the following URL:
http://ip_address
This will then force Windows® 2000/XP to use Port 80 to
communicate with the Brother print server.
Windows® 95/98/Me clients not able to get the driver from a
Windows® 2000/XP system.
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 server is attached to the server queue by going
to PCONSOLE, selecting PRINT QUEUE INFORMATION, and then
CURRENTLY ATTACHED SERVERS. If the print server does not
appear in the list of attached servers, then check the following:
It is always a good idea to try followings in order to eliminate
the possibility of setup errors.
■ Turning off the printer and then on again to force to rescan
the NetWare queue.
■ Deleting and recreating the print server and creating a new
print queue in order to eliminate the possibility of setup
errors.
11 - 10 TROUBLESHOOTING
1 If you changed the login password, you must change the
password in both the Brother print server (using the SET
NETWARE PASSWORD command if you are using the BRConfig
software) or by using a web browser or the BRAdmin application
and in the file server (using the PCONSOLE Print Server
Information Change Password command).
2 If you created the print queue using PCONSOLE and instead of
BRAdmin, 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 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
server may not make a connection to the desired file server. Try
forcing the frame type to the desired one using the SET
NETWARE FRAME command from the print server remote
console or using BRAdmin.
6 If you are using DOS CAPTURE statement and losing portions
of your print job, try setting the TIMEOUT parameter in your
CAPTURE statement to a higher value (at least 50 seconds for
Windows®).
AppleTalk Troubleshooting
If you cannot print from an AppleTalk for Macintosh® computer and
you have checked the hardware and network as described in the
previous steps, then check the following:
1 Make sure that you are running Phase 2 AppleTalk and that you
have selected the correct network interface from the AppleTalk
Control Panel on the Macintosh®.
2 Make sure that the AppleTalk protocol of the print server is
enabled.
TROUBLESHOOTING 11 - 11
3 If you have a large network, make sure that you have the Laser
Writer V8.xx or equivalent driver, since earlier versions may
cause PostScript errors. Also, verify that you get the correct
printer information when you select Printer Info from the Setup
button in the Chooser.
4 Make sure that you have selected the correct Printer Description File
(PPD) from the Chooser (otherwise PostScript errors may result).
5 Verify that you have selected the correct AppleTalk zone.
Because the print server gets its zone information from router
broadcasts, it may not be in the zone you expect, and will
therefore not show up in the Chooser. If this is the case, you may
need to force the zone name using BRAdmin, a web browser or
the SET APPLETALK ZONE command from TELNET.
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, a web browser or TELNET.
2 Make sure that the MAC address of the Windows® setting is the
same as shown in the printer settings page.
Web Browser Troubleshooting (TCP/IP)
1 If you can not connect to the print server using your web browser
it may be worth checking the Proxy Settings of your browser.
Look in the Exceptions setting and if necessary, type in the IP
address of the print server. This will stop your PC from trying to
connect to your ISP or proxy server every time you wish to look
at the printer server.
2 Make sure that you are using the proper Web Browser, we
recommend Netscape Navigator version 4.0 or later/ Microsoft
Internet Explorer version 4.0 or later.
11 - 12 TROUBLESHOOTING
A Appendix

Appendix A
General Information
You can change the configuration of your print server using any of
the following methods.
• Brother BRAdmin application for Windows® 95/98/Me, Windows
NT®4.0 and Windows® 2000/XP
• Brother Web BRAdmin application for IIS*
• HTTP (using a web browser)
• WebJetAdmin Software
• TELNET (command utility)
• Brother BRCONFIG NetWare Utility (command utility)
BRAdmin (Recommended)
The Brother BRAdmin application 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 server.
Web BRAdmin
The Web BRAdmin software is designed to manage all LAN/WAN
Brother network connected devices. By installing the Web BRAdmin
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® systems only the Web BRAdmin software can be accessed from any client
computer with a web browser that supports Java.
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 server.
This will allow you to configure printer and/or print server parameters.
WebJetAdmin
Brother's print server range is HP WebJetAdmin compatible.
TELNET
To connect to the print server using TELNET on UNIX, Windows
NT®4.0, or most other TCP/IP systems, type: TELNET ipaddress
at the command prompt of the system prompt, where ipaddress is
the IP address of the print server. When you are connected, click
RETURN or ENTER to get the "#" prompt, enter the password
access (the password will not appear on the screen), and type
anything in response to the Enter Username> prompt. When you
see the Local> prompt, you are ready to enter commands.
Enter HELP at the command prompt for a list of supported
commands.
BRCONFIG
The Brother BRCONFIG utility runs from the DOS system prompt
and is installed with BRAdmin. To connect the print server using the
Brother BRCONFIG NetWare utility, choose the BRCONFIG utility
from the Brother BRAdmin utilities menu. If you have only one print
server, you will be immediately connected to that server. If you have
more than one print server, you will be given a list of available print
servers. Type the number of the print server to which you wish to
connect. When you are connected, enter the password access (the
password will not appear on the screen) at the "#" prompt, and type
anything in response to the Enter Username> prompt. When you
get the Local> prompt, you are ready to enter commands. To use
BRCONFIG, a Novell Server (running the IPX protocol) is necessary
and an active connection must be made to the server.
Enter HELP at the command prompt for a list of supported
commands.
A - 2 APPENDIX
Using Services
General
A service is a resource that can be accessed by computers that wish
to print to the Brother print server. The Brother print server provides
the following predefined services (do a SHOW SERVICE command
in the Brother print server remote console to see a list of available
services): Enter HELP at the command prompt for a list of supported
commands.
Service (Example)
Definition
BINARY_P1
TCP/IP binary, NetBIOS service.
TEXT_P1

after each line feed).
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript service (switches PJLcompatible printer to PostScript mode).
PCL_P1
PCL service (switches PJL-compatible
printer to PCL mode).
BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT
AppleTalk and LPD service for Mac OS® 8.6
or later.
BRN_xxxxxx_P1
NetWare service (TCP/IP is enabled for
backwards compatibility).
Where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (for
example, BRN_310107_P1).
APPENDIX A - 3
Reloading the Print Server Firmware
General
The firmware on the print 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/
Some software versions that we provide will automatically
factory reset your print server parameters. We try to avoid
doing this. However, if we add a significant new feature to our
print server, it can result in the print server being factory
reset.
Because of this, we STRONGLY recommend that you make a note
of the current print server configuration before you upgrade. To do
this, print out a configuration page (refer to your Quick Setup Guide
for information on how to print a configuration page).
There are three methods of upgrading the firmware in your Brother
print server:
1 Use the BRAdmin application (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 server).
A - 4 APPENDIX
Reloading Firmware Using BRAdmin
The BRAdmin application can be used to easily re-program your
Brother print server.
1 Start BRAdmin.
2 Highlight the appropriate print server. Then select the Control
menu and choose Load Firmware. You can select more than
one print server by pressing CTRL+<select> or SHIFT+<select>
on each additional print 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 server is access.
3 TFTP PUT from this host
Use this method if you have TCP/IP already installed on your
PC. BRAdmin will use the TFTP protocol to send the new
firmware data to the print 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 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 server can
read the file. On Unix systems you can use the chmod command to
specify file attributes. For example, chmod filename 666
allows the filename to be accessed by anyone. Also make sure that
the TFTP service is running on your Unix server.
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
server read the firmware data from the assigned NetWare
server, the print server attaches to the NetWare server and
reads the firmware itself.
APPENDIX A - 5
If you encounter problems upgrading the firmware and you
find that the network portion of the printer no longer functions,
you should try re-programming the print server by using the
COPY command from the DOS prompt of your PC. To do
this, connect a parallel cable between your PC and printer
and use the command COPY filename LPT1:/B (where
filename is the new firmware file).
A - 6 APPENDIX
Reloading Using the FTP Protocol from a
Command Prompt
By specifying the print server PASSWORD AS THE USERNAME
when logging on, it becomes possible to upgrade the firmware of the
print server or printer (if supported). The following example assumes
that the print 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

200 Ready command OK.

ftp: 1498053 bytes sent in 8.52Seconds
175.77Kbytes/sec.
ftp> close
226 Data Transfer OK.
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 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.
