Configuring your machine for a wireless
network (For HL-5470DW(T) and
HL-6180DW(T))
3
Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend following one of the setup methods
outlined in the Quick Setup Guide.
3
The wireless setup method using the installer CD-ROM and a USB cable is the easiest method for setup.
For additional wireless configuration methods please read this chapter for more details on how to configure
the wireless network settings. For information on TCP/IP settings, see How to change your machine’s
network settings (IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway) uu page 4.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close
to the WLAN access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of
your documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large
graphics, you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer, or USB for the
fastest throughput speed.
• Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one connection
method can be used at a time.
• Before configuring wireless settings, you will need to know your Network name: (SSID) and Network Key.
If you are using an enterprise wireless network you also need to know the User ID and Password.

If you connect the machine with a network cable to your network, use the Wired LAN menu selections. If
you connect the machine to a wireless Ethernet network, use the WLAN menu selections.
Boot Method
4
This selection controls how the machine obtains an IP address.
Auto mode
4
In this mode, the machine will scan the network for a DHCP server. If it can find one, and if the DHCP server
is configured to allocate an IP address to the machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will
be used. If no DHCP server is available, the IP Address is set using the APIPA protocol. After the machine is
initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the network for a server.
Static mode
4
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the
Boot Method to Static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server
from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the Boot Method, use the
machine’s control panel, BRAdmin Light utility or Web Based Management.
IP Address
4
This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have chosen a Boot Method of Static,
enter the IP address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). If you have chosen a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its
IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your machine will probably be
incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your
network administrator for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.
36
Control panel setup
Subnet Mask
4
This field displays the current subnet mask used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or BOOTP to
obtain the subnet mask, enter the desired subnet mask. Check with your network administrator for the subnet
mask to use.
Gateway
4
This field displays the current gateway or router address used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or
BOOTP to obtain the gateway or router address, enter the address you wish to assign. If you do not have a
gateway or router, leave this field blank. Check with your network administrator if you are unsure.
IP Boot Tries
4
4
This field displays the number of attempts the machine will try to obtain an IP address when the Boot Method
is set to any setting except Static.
APIPA
4
The setting of On will cause the print server to automatically allocate a Link-Local IP address in the range
(169.254.1.0 - 169.254.254.255) when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method
you have set. (See Boot Method uu page 36.) Choosing Off means the IP address does not change, when
the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method you have set.
IPv6
4
This machine is compatible with IPv6, the next generation Internet protocol. If you want to use the IPv6
protocol, choose On. The default setting for IPv6 is Off. For more information on the IPv6 protocol, visit
http://solutions.brother.com/.

Overview
6
In today’s world there are many security threats to your network and the data that travels over it. Your Brother
machine employs some of the latest network security and encryption protocols available today. These
network features can be integrated into your overall network security plan to help protect your data and
prevent unauthorized access to the machine. This chapter explains how to configure them.
You can configure the following security features:
 Managing your network machine securely using SSL/TLS (See Managing your network machine securely
using SSL/TLS uu page 58.)
 Managing your network machine securely using SNMPv3 protocol (See Secure Management using
Web Based Management (web browser) uu page 58 or Secure Management using BRAdmin
Professional 3 (Windows®) uu page 60.)
6
 Secure Management using BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) (See Secure Management using
BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) uu page 60.)
 Printing documents securely using SSL/TLS (See Printing documents securely using SSL/TLS
uu page 61.)
 Sending an E-mail securely (See Sending an E-mail securely uu page 62.)
 Using IEEE 802.1x authentication (See Using IEEE 802.1x authentication uu page 64.)
 Certificate for secure management (See Using Certificates for device security uu page 66.)
 Managing multiple certificates (See Managing multiple certificates uu page 76.)
Note
We recommend to disable the Telnet, FTP and TFTP protocols. Accessing the machine using these
protocols is not secure. (For how to configure the protocol settings, see How to configure the machine
settings using Web Based Management (web browser) uu page 46.)
57
Security features
Managing your network machine securely using SSL/TLS
6
To manage your network machine securely, you need to use the management utilities with security protocols.
Secure Management using Web Based Management (web browser)
6
We recommend to use HTTPS and SNMPv3 protocol for secure management. To use these protocols, the
following machine settings are required.
Note
The HTTPS protocol is enabled by default.
You can change the HTTPS protocol settings on the Web Based Management screen, by clicking
Network, Protocol and then HTTP Server Settings.
a
b
6
Start your web browser.
Type “https://Common Name/” into your browser. (Where “Common Name” is the Common Name that
you assigned for the certificate, such as an IP address, node name or domain name. For how to assign
a Common Name for the certificate, see Using Certificates for device security uu page 66.)
 For example:
https://192.168.1.2/ (if the Common Name is the machine’s IP address)
c
d
No password is required by default. Enter a password if you have set one and press
.
You can now access the machine using HTTPS.
If you use the SNMPv3 protocol, follow the steps below.
Note
You can also change the SNMP settings by using BRAdmin Professional 3.
e
f
Click Network.
Click Protocol.
58
Security features
g
h
Make sure that the SNMP setting is enabled, and then click Advanced Setting of SNMP.
You can configure the SNMP settings from the screen below.
6
We have three SNMP connection modes of operation.
6
 SNMP v1/v2c read-write access
In this mode the print server uses version 1 and version 2c of the SNMP protocol. You can use all Brother
applications under this mode. However, it is not secure since it will not authenticate the user and the data
will not be encrypted.
 SNMPv3 read-write access and v1/v2c read-only access
In this mode the print server uses the read-write access of version 3 and the read-only access of version 1
and version 2c of the SNMP protocol.
Note
When you use the SNMPv3 read-write access and v1/v2c read-only access mode, some Brother
applications (e.g. BRAdmin Light) that access to the print server do not work properly since they authorize
the read-only access of version 1 and version 2c. If you want to use all applications, use the SNMP v1/v2c
read-write access mode.

Security features
 SNMPv3 read-write access
With this mode the print server uses version 3 of the SNMP protocol. If you want to manage the print server
securely, use this mode.
Note
• When you use the SNMPv3 read-write access mode, please note the following.
• You can manage the print server by using BRAdmin Professional 3 or Web Based Management only.
• Except for BRAdmin Professional 3, all applications that use SNMPv1/v2c will be restricted. To allow
the use of SNMPv1/v2c applications, use SNMPv3 read-write access and v1/v2c read-only access
or SNMP v1/v2c read-write access mode.
• For more information, see the Help text in Web Based Management.

To use the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility securely, you need to follow the
points below
6
 We strongly recommend to use the latest version of the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility that is available as
a download from http://solutions.brother.com/. If you use an older version of BRAdmin 1 to manage your
Brother machines the user authentication will not be secure.
 If you want to avoid access to your machine from older versions of BRAdmin 1, you need to disable the
access from older versions of BRAdmin 1 from Advanced Setting of SNMP on Protocol page using Web
Based Management. (See Secure Management using Web Based Management (web browser)
uu page 58.)
 If you use BRAdmin Professional 3 and Web Based Management together, use Web Based Management
with the HTTPS protocol. (See Secure Management using Web Based Management (web browser)
uu page 58.)
 If you are managing a mixed group of older print servers 2 and print servers with BRAdmin Professional 3,
we recommend using a different password in each group. This will ensure security is maintained on the
new print servers.

This machine supports POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH methods to send an E-mail via an E-mail server
that requires user authentication. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from accessing the E-mail
server. You can use Web Based Management or BRAdmin Professional 3 to configure these settings. You
can use POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH methods for E-mail Notification.
E-mail server settings
You need to match the settings of SMTP authentication method with the method used by your E-mail server.
Contact your network administrator or your ISP (Internet Service Provider) about the E-mail server
configuration.
You will also need to check SMTP-AUTH of SMTP Server Authentication Method to enable the SMTP
server authentication.
62
Security features
SMTP settings
 You can change the SMTP port number using Web Based Management. This is useful if your ISP (Internet
Service Provider) implements the “Outbound Port 25 Blocking (OP25B)” service.
 By changing the SMTP port number to a specific number which your ISP is using for the SMTP server (for
example, port 587), you would then be able to send an E-mail via the SMTP server.
 If you can use both POP before SMTP and SMTP-AUTH, we recommend choosing SMTP-AUTH.
 If you choose POP before SMTP for the SMTP Server Authentication Method, you need to configure the
POP3 settings. You can also use the APOP method if needed.
Sending an E-mail securely using SSL/TLS
6
This machine supports SSL/TLS methods to send an E-mail via an E-mail server that requires secure
SSL/TLS communication. To send E-mail via an E-mail server that is using SSL/TLS communication, you
must configure SMTP over SSL/TLS or POP3 over SSL/TLS correctly.
6
Verifying Server Certificate
 If you choose SSL or TLS for SMTP over SSL/TLS or POP3 over SSL/TLS, the Verify Server Certificate
check box will be automatically checked to verify the Server Certificate.
• Before you verify the Server Certificate, you must import the CA certificate that has been issued by the
CA that signed the Server Certificate. Contact your network administrator or your ISP (Internet Service
Provider) to confirm whether a CA certificate import is necessary. For importing the certificate, see
Import and export a CA certificate uu page 77.
• If you do not need to verify the Server Certificate, uncheck Verify Server Certificate.
Port Number
 If you choose SSL or TLS, the SMTP Port or POP3 Port value will be changed to match the protocol. If
you want to change the port number manually, enter the port number after you choose SMTP over
SSL/TLS or POP3 over SSL/TLS.
 You must configure the POP3/SMTP communication method to match the E-mail server. For details of the
E-mail server settings, contact your network administrator or ISP (Internet Service Provider).
In most cases, the secured webmail services require the following settings:
(SMTP)
SMTP Port: 587
SMTP Server Authentication Method: SMTP-AUTH
SMTP over SSL/TLS: TLS
(POP3)
POP3 Port: 995

6
Your Brother machine supports the use of multiple security certificates allowing secure management,
authentication and communication with the machine. The following security certificate features can be used
with the machine.
 SSL/TLS communication
 IEEE 802.1x authentication
 SSL communication for SMTP/POP3
The Brother machine supports the following certificates.
 Pre-installed certificate
Your machine has a pre-installed certificate.
Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS communication without creating or installing a
certificate.
 Self-signed certificate
This print server issues its own certificate. Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS
communication without having a certificate from a CA. (See Creating and installing a certificate
uu page 69.)
66
Security features
 Certificate from a CA
There are two methods for installing a certificate from a CA. If you already have a CA or if you want to use
a certificate from an external trusted CA:
• When using a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from this print server. (See How to create a CSR
uu page 74.)
• When importing a certificate and a private key. (See Import and export the certificate and private key
uu page 75.)
 CA certificate
If you use a CA certificate that identifies the CA (Certificate Authority) itself and owns its private key, you
must import a CA certificate from the CA, prior to the configuration. (See Import and export a CA certificate
uu page 77.)
Note
• If you are going to use SSL/TLS communication, we recommend that you contact your system
administrator first.
6
• When you reset the print server back to its default factory settings, the certificate and the private key that
are installed will be deleted. If you want to keep the same certificate and the private key after resetting the
print server, export them before resetting and re-install them. (See How to export the self-signed
certificate, the certificate issued by a CA, and the private key uu page 76.)

Certificate page and then view each certificate's content, delete or export the certificate. For information on
how to access the Certificate page, see Configure certificate using Web Based Management uu page 68.
The Brother machine allows you to store up to three self-signed certificates or up to three certificates issued
by a CA. You can use the stored certificates for using the HTTPS/IPPS protocol or IEEE 802.1x
authentication.
You can also store up to four CA certificates for using IEEE 802.1x authentication and SSL for SMTP/POP3.
We recommend you store one certificate less and keep the last free to deal with certificate expiration. For
example, if you want to store a CA certificate, store three certificates and leave one storage as a backup. In
the case of re-issuing the certificate, such as when the certificate is expired, you can import a new certificate
to the backup and then you can delete the expired certificate, to avoid configuration failure.

87
Types of network connections and protocols
Protocols
8
TCP/IP protocols and functions
8
Protocols are the standardized sets of rules for transmitting data on a network. Protocols allow users to gain
access to network connected resources.
The print server used on the Brother machine supports the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol) protocol.
TCP/IP is the most popular set of protocols used for communication such as Internet and E-mail. This protocol
can be used in almost all operating systems such as Windows®, Windows Server®, Mac OS X and Linux ®.
The following TCP/IP protocols are available on the Brother machine.
Note
• You can configure the protocol settings by using the HTTP interface (web browser). (See How to configure
the machine settings using Web Based Management (web browser) uu page 46.)
• To find what protocols your Brother machine supports, see Supported protocols and security features
uu page 107.
8
• For information about supported security protocols, see Security protocols uu page 104.

8
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network devices including computers,
routers and Brother network ready machines. The Brother print server supports SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and
SNMPv3.
Note
For details of the SNMPv3 protocol, see Security protocols uu page 104.
LLMNR
8
The Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution protocol (LLMNR) resolves the names of neighboring computers,
if the network does not have a Domain Name System (DNS) server. The LLMNR Responder function works
in both the IPv4 or IPv6 environment when using a computer that has the LLMNR Sender function such as
Windows Vista® and Windows ® 7.
8
Web Services
8
The Web Services protocol enables Windows Vista® or Windows® 7 users to install the drivers used for
printing by right-clicking the machine icon from the Network folder. (See Installing drivers used for printing
via Web Services (Windows Vista® and Windows® 7) uu page 100.) The Web Services also lets you check

Configuring your machine for a network
9
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
9
To use the machine in a networked TCP/IP environment, you need to configure its IP address and subnet
mask. The IP address you assign to the print server must be on the same logical network as your host
computers. If it is not, you must properly configure the subnet mask and the gateway address.
IP address
9
An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each device connected to a network. An IP address
consists of four numbers separated by dots. Each number is between 0 and 255.
 Example: In a small network, you would normally change the final number.
• 192.168.1.1
• 192.168.1.2
• 192.168.1.3
How the IP address is assigned to your print server:
9
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network the print server will automatically obtain its IP
address from that server.
9
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may also be the router.
For more information on DHCP, BOOTP and RARP, see:
Using DHCP to configure the IP address uu page 108.
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address uu page 110.
Using RARP to configure the IP address uu page 109.
If you do not have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server, the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol will
automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. For more information on
APIPA, see Using APIPA to configure the IP address uu page 110.
92
Configuring your machine for a network
Subnet mask
9
Subnet masks restrict network communication.
 Example: Computer 1 can talk to Computer 2
• Computer 1
IP Address: 192.168. 1. 2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.000
• Computer 2
IP Address: 192.168. 1. 3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.000
Where the 0 is in the Subnet mask, there is no limit to communication at this part of the address. What this
means in the above example is, we can communicate with any device that has an IP address that begins with
192.168.1.x. (where x. are numbers between 0 and 255).
Gateway (and router)
9
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the
network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a
destination is located on an external network, the router transmits data to the external network. If your network
communicates with other networks, you may need to configure the Gateway IP address. If you do not know
the Gateway IP address then contact your Network Administrator.
93

Configuring your machine for a network
IEEE 802.1x Authentication
9
IEEE 802.1x is an IEEE standard for wired and wireless networks that limits access from unauthorized
network devices. Your Brother machine (supplicant) sends an authentication request to a RADIUS server
(Authentication server) through your access point (authenticator). After your request has been verified by the
RADIUS server, your machine can access the network.
Authentication methods
9
 LEAP (For wireless network)
Cisco LEAP (Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Cisco Systems, Inc.
which uses a user ID and password for authentication.
 EAP-FAST
EAP-FAST (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Flexible Authentication via Secured Tunneling) has been
developed by Cisco Systems, Inc. which uses a user ID and password for authentication, and symmetric
key algorithms to achieve a tunneled authentication process.
The Brother machine supports the following inner authentication methods:
• EAP-FAST/NONE
• EAP-FAST/MS-CHAPv2
• EAP-FAST/GTC
9
 EAP-MD5 (For wired network)
EAP-MD5 (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Message Digest Algorithm 5) uses a user ID and password
for challenge-response authentication.
 PEAP
PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol) has been developed by Microsoft Corporation, Cisco
Systems and RSA Security. PEAP creates an encrypted SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)/TLS (Transport
Layer Security) tunnel between a client and an authentication server, for sending a user ID and password.
PEAP provides mutual authentication between the server and the client.
The Brother machine supports the following inner authentications:
• PEAP/MS-CHAPv2
• PEAP/GTC
94
Configuring your machine for a network
 EAP-TTLS
EAP-TTLS (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Tunneled Transport Layer Security) has been developed
by Funk Software and Certicom. EAP-TTLS creates a similar encrypted SSL tunnel to PEAP, between a
client and an authentication server, for sending a user ID and password. EAP-TTLS provides mutual
authentication between the server and the client.
The Brother machine supports the following inner authentications:
• EAP-TTLS/CHAP
• EAP-TTLS/MS-CHAP
• EAP-TTLS/MS-CHAPv2
• EAP-TTLS/PAP

Wireless network terms and concepts
(For HL-5470DW(T) and HL-6180DW(T))
10
Specifying your network
10
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
10
You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
 SSID
Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID. The
SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point. The wireless network devices you
want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point. The access point and wireless
network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon) which has the SSID information.
When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the wireless network that is close
enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
 Channels
Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14
different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the
number of channels available is restricted.
Security terms
10
10
Authentication and encryption
10
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication
(how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless
machine, it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when
configuring these options. Please see Supported protocols and security features uu page 107 for which
authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless machine supports.
96
Wireless network terms and concepts (For HL-5470DW(T) and HL-6180DW(T))
Authentication and Encryption methods for a personal wireless network
10
A personal wireless network is a small network, such as a home wireless network, without IEEE 802.1x
support.
If you want to use your machine in an IEEE 802.1x supported wireless network, see Authentication and
Encryption methods for an enterprise wireless network uu page 98.
Authentication methods
10
 Open system
Wireless devices are allowed to access the network without any authentication.
 Shared key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
The Brother wireless machine uses the WEP key as the pre-determined key.
 WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK
Enables a Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-shared key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK), which enables the Brother
wireless machine to associate with access points using TKIP for WPA-PSK or AES for WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK (WPA-Personal).
Encryption methods
10
 None
No encryption method is used.
10
 WEP
When using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the data is transmitted and received with a secure key.
 TKIP
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) provides per-packet key mixing, a message integrity check and
rekeying mechanism.
 AES
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) provides stronger data protection by using a symmetric-key
encryption.
Note
• IEEE 802.11n does not support WEP or TKIP for the encryption method.
• If you want to connect to your wireless network using IEEE 802.11n, we recommend to choose AES.
97
Wireless network terms and concepts (For HL-5470DW(T) and HL-6180DW(T))
Network key
10
 Open system/Shared key with WEP
This key is a 64-bit or 128-bit value that must be entered in an ASCII or hexadecimal format.
• 64 (40) bit ASCII:
Uses 5 text characters. e.g. “WSLAN” (this is case sensitive)
• 64 (40) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data. e.g. “71f2234aba”
• 128 (104) bit ASCII:
Uses 13 text characters. e.g. “Wirelesscomms” (this is case sensitive)
• 128 (104) bit hexadecimal:
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal data. e.g. “71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa2ba”
 WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and TKIP or AES
Uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that is 8 or more characters in length, up to a maximum of 63 characters.

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

Using services
B
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
TEXT_P1
TCP/IP text service (adds carriage return after each line feed)
PCL_P1
PCL service (switches PJL-compatible machine to PCL mode)
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx
TCP/IP binary
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx_AT
PostScript® service for Macintosh
POSTSCRIPT_P1
PostScript® service (switches PJL-compatible machine to PostScript® mode)
Where “xxxxxxxxxxxx” is your machine’s MAC Address (Ethernet Address).
Other ways to set the IP address (for advanced users and
administrators)
B
Using DHCP to configure the IP address
B
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server on your network, the print server will automatically obtain its IP address
from the DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, you must set the Boot Method to static so that
the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying to obtain an IP address
from any of these systems. To change the Boot Method, use the machine’s control panel Network menu
(for LCD models), BRAdmin applications or Web Based Management (web browser).
108
B
Appendix B
Using RARP to configure the IP address
B
Before you configure the IP address using RARP, you must set the machine’s Boot Method to RARP. To
change the Boot Method, use the machine’s control panel Network menu (for LCD models), BRAdmin
applications or Web Based Management (web browser).
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
BRN008077310107 (or BRW008077310107 for a wireless network)
Where the first entry is the MAC Address (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 another command; 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 machine is powered on.
B
109
Appendix B
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address
B
Before you configure the IP address using BOOTP, you must set the machine’s Boot Method to BOOTP. To
change the Boot Method, use the machine’s control panel Network menu (for LCD models), BRAdmin
applications or Web Based Management (web browser).
BOOTP is an alternative to RARP that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and
gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running
on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service; type
man bootpd or refer to your system documentation for information). BOOTP is usually started up via the
/etc/inetd.conf file, so you may need to enable it by removing the “#” in front of the bootp entry in that
file. For example, a typical bootp entry in the /etc/inetd.conf file would be:
#bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i
Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”.
Note
In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already
enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network
type (1 for Ethernet), MAC Address (Ethernet Address) and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of
the print server. Unfortunately, the exact format for doing this is not standardized, so you will need to refer
to your system documentation to determine how to enter this information (many UNIX systems also have
template examples in the bootptab file that you can use for reference). Some examples of typical
/etc/bootptab entries include: (“BRN” below is “BRW” for a wireless network.)
BRN310107 1
00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
BRN310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\ip=192.168.1.2:
Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included
a download filename in the configuration file. If this is the case, simply create a null file on the host and specify
the name of this file and its path in the configuration file.
As with RARP, the print server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the machine is powered
on.
Using APIPA to configure the IP address
B
The Brother print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, DHCP
clients automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server is not available. The
device chooses it's own IP address in the range 169.254.1.0 through to 169.254.254.255. The subnet mask
is automatically set to 255.255.0.0 and the gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0.
By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled. If you want to disable the APIPA protocol, you can disable it using
the control panel of the machine (for LCD models), BRAdmin Light or Web Based Management (web
browser).
110
B
Appendix B
Using ARP to configure the IP address
B
If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can
also use the ARP command. The ARP command is available on Windows® systems that have TCP/IP
installed as well as UNIX systems. To use ARP enter the following command at the command prompt:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
ping ipaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the MAC Address (Ethernet Address) of the print server and ipaddress is
the IP address of the print server. For example:
 Windows® systems
Windows® systems require the dash “-” character between each digit of the MAC Address (Ethernet
Address).
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
ping 192.168.1.2
 UNIX/Linux systems
Typically, UNIX and Linux systems require the colon “:” character between each digit of the MAC Address
(Ethernet Address).
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
ping 192.168.1.2
Note
You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the print server and
operating system) to use the arp -s command.
If there is a router, you may use BOOTP or other methods described in this chapter to enter the IP address.
If your administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP or RARP
your Brother print server can receive an IP address from any one of these IP address allocation systems.
In which case, you will not need to use the ARP command. The ARP command only works once. For
security reasons, once you have successfully configured the IP address of a Brother print server using the
ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The print server will
ignore any attempts to do this. If you wish to change the IP address again, use a Web Based Management
(web browser), TELNET (using the SET IP ADDRESS command) or factory reset the print server (which
will then allow you to use the ARP command again).
111
B
Appendix B
Using the TELNET console to configure the IP address
B
You can also use the TELNET command to change the IP address.
TELNET is an effective method to change the machine’s IP address. But a valid IP address must already be
programmed into the print server.
Type TELNET <command line> at the command prompt of the system prompt, where <command line>
is the IP address of the print server. When you are connected, push the Return or Enter key to get the “#”
prompt. Enter the password “access” (the password will not appear on the screen).
You will be prompted for a user name. Enter anything in response to this prompt.
You will then get the Local> prompt. Type SET IP ADDRESS ipaddress, where ipaddress is the
desired IP address you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). For example:
Local> SET IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.3
You will now need to set the subnet mask by typing SET IP SUBNET subnet mask, where subnet mask
is the desired subnet mask you wish to assign to the print server (check with your network administrator for
the subnet mask to use). For example:
Local> SET IP SUBNET 255.255.255.0
If you do not have any subnets, use one of the following default subnet masks:
255.0.0.0 for class A networks
255.255.0.0 for class B networks
255.255.255.0 for class C networks
The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this
group ranges from 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g. 13.27.7.1), 128 through 191 for Class B networks
(e.g.128.10.1.30), and 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g. 192.168.1.4).
If you have a gateway (router), enter its address with the command SET IP ROUTER routeraddress,
where routeraddress is the desired IP address of the gateway you wish to assign to the print server. For
example:
Local> SET IP ROUTER 192.168.1.4
Type SET IP METHOD STATIC to set the method of IP access configuration to static.
B
To verify that you have entered the IP information correctly, type SHOW IP.
Type EXIT or Ctrl-D (i.e. hold down the control key and type “D”) to end the remote console session.
