Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend following one of the setup methods
outlined in the Quick Setup Guide.
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 5.
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.

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, Web Based Management or Remote Setup.
50
Control panel setup
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.
Subnet Mask
4
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.
Node Name
4
You can register the machine name on the Network. This name is often referred to as a NetBIOS name; it will
be the name that is registered by the WINS server on your network. Brother recommends the name
“BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx” for a wired network or “BRWxxxxxxxxxxxx” for a wireless network. (“xxxxxxxxxxxx” is
your machine’s MAC Address / Ethernet Address.)
WINS Config
4
This selection controls how the machine obtains the IP address of the WINS server.
Auto
4
Automatically uses a DHCP request to determine the IP addresses for the primary and secondary WINS
servers. You must set the BOOT Method to Auto for this feature to work.
Static
4
Uses a specified IP address for the primary and secondary WINS servers.
WINS Server
4
Primary WINS Server IP Address

This field specifies the IP address of the primary WINS (Windows® Internet Name Service) server. If set to a
non-zero value, the machine will contact this server to register its name with the Windows® Internet Name
Service.

MFC-8510DN, MFC-8520DN and MFC-8710DW: available as a download)
4
The Fax to Server feature allows the machine to scan a document and send it over the network to a separate
fax server. The document will then be sent from the server as fax data to the destination fax number over
standard phone lines. When the Fax to Server feature is set to On all automatic fax transmissions from the
machine will be sent to the fax server for fax transmission. You can continue to send a fax directly from the
machine using the manual fax feature.
To send a document to the fax server the correct syntax for that server must be used. The destination fax
number must be sent with a prefix and a suffix that match the parameters used by the fax server. In most
cases the syntax for the prefix is “fax=” and the syntax for the suffix would be the domain name of the fax
server E-mail gateway. The suffix must also include the “@” symbol at the beginning of the suffix. The prefix
and the suffix information must be stored in the machine before you can use the fax to server function.
Destination fax numbers can be saved in the One Touch or Speed Dial locations or entered using the dial
pad (up to 20 digit numbers). For example if you wanted to send a document to a destination fax number of
123-555-0001 the following syntax would be used.
Note
Your fax server application must support an E-mail gateway.

Web Based Management
5
Overview
5
A standard Web Browser can be used to manage your machine using the HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer
Protocol) or HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer). You can perform the function
listed or get the following information from a machine on your network using a web browser.
 Machine status information
 Change Fax configuration items, such as General Setup, Address Book settings and Remote Fax (For
MFC models)
 Change network settings such as TCP/IP information
5
 Configure Gigabit Ethernet and Jumbo Frame (For DCP-8250DN and MFC-8950DW(T)) (See Gigabit
Ethernet (wired network only) (For DCP-8250DN and MFC-8950DW(T)) uu page 93.)
 Configure Secure Function Lock 2.0 (See Secure Function Lock 2.0 uu page 95.)
 Configure Store Print Log to Network (See Store Print Log to Network uu page 100.)
 Configure Scan to FTP (See Changing the Scan to FTP configuration using a web browser uu page 104.)
 Configure Scan to Network (See Changing the Scan to Network configuration using a web browser
(Windows®) uu page 106.)
 Configure LDAP (See Changing the LDAP configuration using a web browser (DCP-8250DN,
MFC-8810DW, MFC-8910DW and MFC-8950DW(T): standard, MFC-8510DN, MFC-8520DN and
MFC-8710DW: available as a download) uu page 107.)
 Software version information of the machine and print server
 Change network and machine configuration details
Note
We recommend Windows® Internet Explorer® 7.0/8.0 or Firefox® 3.6 for Windows® and Safari 4.0/5.0 for
Macintosh. Please also make sure that JavaScript and Cookies are always enabled in whichever browser
you use. If a different web browser is used, make sure it is compatible with HTTP 1.0 and HTTP 1.1.
You must use the TCP/IP protocol on your network and have a valid IP address programmed into the print
server and your computer.

Web Based Management
How to configure the machine settings using Web Based
Management (web browser)
5
A standard web browser can be used to change your print server settings using the HTTP (Hyper Text
Transfer Protocol) or HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer).
Note
• We recommend to use HTTPS protocol for your security when configuring the settings using Web Based
Management.
• When you use the HTTPS protocol for Web Based Management configuration, your browser will display
a warning dialog.
a
b
5
Start your web browser.
Type “http://machine’s IP address/” into your browser (where “machine’s IP address” is the machine’s IP
address).
 For example:
http://192.168.1.2/
Note
• If you are using a Domain Name System or enable a NetBIOS name, you can enter another name such
as “SharedPrinter” instead of the IP address.
• For example:
http://SharedPrinter/
If you enable a NetBIOS name, you can also use the node name.
• For example:
http://brnxxxxxxxxxxxx/
The NetBIOS name can be seen in the Network Configuration Report (See Printing the Network
Configuration Report uu page 63).
• For Macintosh users, you can have easy access to the Web Based Management System by clicking the
machine icon on the Status Monitor screen. For more information: uu Software User's Guide.

(For DCP-8250DN and MFC-8950DW(T))
5
Your machine supports 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet. To connect to a 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet
Network, you must set the machine’s Ethernet link mode to Auto from the machine’s control panel or Auto
from Web Based Management (web browser). 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet Network also allows you to use
the Jumbo Frame feature.
Jumbo frames are the data frames that are larger than the standard Ethernet frame size (maximum 1,518
byte). The Jumbo Frame feature offers the faster data transfer compared to the standard Ethernet frame. You
can configure the machine’s frame size by using Web Based Management (web browser) or BRAdmin
Professional 3.
Note
• Use a straight-through Category 5e (or greater) Shielded Twisted-Pair (STP) cable for 10BASE-T,
100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet Network or 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet Network. When you connect the
machine to a Gigabit Ethernet Network, use the network devices complying with 1000BASE-T.
• To use the Jumbo Frame feature, you must confirm all of your devices on your network, including your
computer, have been configured to use Jumbo Frame.

Internet faxing (IFAX) allows you to send and receive fax documents using the Internet as the transport
mechanism. Documents are transmitted in E-mail messages as attached TIFF-F files. This means that
computers are also able to receive and send documents, providing that the computer has as an application
that can generate and view TIFF-F files, you can use any TIFF-F viewer application. Any documents sent via
the machine will automatically be converted into a TIFF-F format. If you wish to send and receive messages
to and from your machine, your mail application on the computer must be able to support the MIME format.

Important information on Internet fax
7
Internet fax communication on a LAN system is basically the same as communication via E-mail; however, it
is different from fax communication using standard phone lines. The following is important information for
using Internet fax:
 Factors such as the receiver’s location, structure of the LAN system, and how busy the circuit (such as the
Internet) is, may cause the system to take a long time to send back an error mail. (normally 20 sec. to 30
sec.)
 In the case of transmission through the Internet, due to its low level of security, we recommend that you
use standard phone lines to send confidential documents.
 If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME format, you cannot transmit a document to
the receiver. Depending on the receiver’s server, there may be some cases in which the error mail will not
be sent back.
 If the size of a document’s image data is too large, there is a possibility of unsuccessful transmission.
 You cannot change the font or character size of Internet mail that you received.

How to Internet fax
7
Before using Internet fax you must configure your Brother machine to communicate with your network and
mail server. You can configure these items from the control panel, Web Based Management, Remote setup
or BRAdmin Professional 3. You must ensure the following items are configured on your machine:
 IP address (If you are already using your machine on your network, the machine’s IP address has been
configured correctly.)
 E-mail address
 SMTP, POP3 server address/port/Authentication method/Encryption method/Server Certificate
Verification
 mailbox name and password
If you are unsure of any of these items, please contact your systems administrator.

To send an Internet fax, you can configure the following items from the control panel, Web Based
Management or Remote Setup.
 Sender Subject (if needed)
 Size Limit (if needed)
 Notification (if needed) (For more information, see TX Verification Mail uu page 121.)
How to send an Internet fax
7
Sending an Internet fax is the same as sending a normal fax (For more information: uu Basic User's Guide:
Sending a fax). If you have already programmed the addresses of the destination Internet fax machines as
One Touch or Speed-Dial locations, you can send the Internet fax by loading the document into the machine.
If you want to change the resolution, choose Fax Resolution from the FAX menu to set the preferred
resolution, choose a Speed Dial or One Touch number, press Start (S.Fine is not supported for Internet
fax).

Note
• If you wish to manually enter the Internet fax address, load the document into the machine and do one of
the following.
• For 5-line LCD models
Press Shift and 1 simultaneously to change into the “alphabet” dialing mode. Enter the address and
then press Start.
• For Touchscreen models
Press
and then press
to choose numbers, characters or special characters. Enter the
address and then press Start.
For more information to manually enter the Internet fax address: uu Basic User's Guide.
• You can register the E-mail address information from Web Based Management or Remote Setup.
After the document is scanned, it is transmitted to the recipient Internet fax machine automatically via your
SMTP server. You can cancel the send operation by pressing the Stop/Exit key during scanning. After the
transmission is finished, the machine will return to standby mode.
7
Note
Some E-mail servers do not allow you to send large E-mail documents (the system administrator will often
place a limit on the maximum E-mail size). With this function enabled, the machine will display
Out of Memory when trying to send E-mail documents over 1 Mbyte in size. The document will not be
sent and an error report will be printed. The document you are sending should be separated into smaller
documents that will be accepted by the mail server. (For your information, a 42 page document based on
the ITU-T Test Chart #1 test chart is approximately 1 Mbyte in size.)
Receiving E-mail or Internet fax
Before receiving an Internet fax

available as a download)
How to receive an Internet fax
7
There are 2 ways you can receive E-mail messages:
 POP3 receiving at regular intervals
 POP3 receiving (manually initiated)
Using POP3 receiving the machine must poll the E-mail server to receive the data. This polling can occur at
set intervals (for example, you can configure the machine to poll the E-mail server at 10 minute intervals) or
you can manually poll the server by pressing the Shift + Start or 1 + Start for Touchscreen models.
If your machine starts to receive E-mail data, the LCD panel will reflect this activity. For example, you will see
Receiving on the LCD panel followed by xx E-mail(s) or XX/XX E-Mail(s) for Touchscreen models.
If you press the Shift + Start or 1 + Start for Touchscreen models to manually poll the E-mail server for E-mail
data and there are no mail documents waiting to be printed, the machine will display No Mail on the LCD
panel for two seconds.
Note
• If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received data will be held in the machine’s
memory. This data will be printed automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine.
7
• If the received mail is not in a plain text format or an attached file is not in the TIFF-F format, the following
error message will be printed: “ATTACHED FILE FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED. FILE
NAME:XXXXXX.doc” If the received mail is too large, the following error message will be printed: “E-MAIL
FILE TOO LARGE.”. If Delete POP Receive Error Mail is ON (default) then the error mail is automatically
deleted from the E-mail server.
Receiving an Internet fax to your computer
7
When a computer receives an Internet fax document, the document is attached to a mail message that
informs the computer that it has received a document from an Internet fax. This is notified in the subject field
of the received mail message.
Note
If the computer to which you wish to send a document is not running Windows® XP, Windows Server®
2003/2008, Windows Vista® or Windows® 7, please inform the computer’s owner that they may need to
install some software that can view TIFF-F files.

Additional Internet Fax options
7
Forwarding received E-mail and fax messages
7
You can forward received E-mail or standard fax messages to another E-mail address or fax machine.
Received messages can be forwarded via E-mail to a computer or Internet fax. They can also be forwarded
via standard phone lines to another machine.
The setting can be enabled using a web browser or through the control panel of the machine. The steps for
configuring fax forward can be found in the Advanced User's Guide if supported by your machine.
Relay broadcasting
7
This function allows the Brother machine to receive a document over the Internet, and then relay it to other
fax machines through conventional telephone lines.
Before relaying broadcast
7
To relay broadcast, you must configure the following items from the control panel, Web Based Management
or Remote Setup:
 Relay Broadcast
You must enable the relay broadcast.
 Relay Domain
You must configure your machine’s domain name on the machine that will broadcast the document to the
conventional fax machine. If you wish to use your machine as a relay broadcast device, you must specify
the domain name that you trust at the machine, in other words, the portion of the name after the “@” sign.
Use care in selecting a trusted domain since any user on a trusted domain will be able to send a relay
broadcast.
You can register up to 10 domain names.

In this example, your machine has an E-mail address of FAX@brother.com, you wish to send a document
from this machine to another machine in England with an E-mail address of UKFAX@brother.co.uk, this
machine will then forward the document to a standard fax machine using a conventional telephone line. If
your E-mail address is FAX@brother.com, you must configure a trusted domain name of brother.com on the
machine in England that will broadcast the document to the conventional fax machine. If you do not enter the
domain name information, then the machine in the middle (the machine that will broadcast the document) will
not trust any Internet jobs that it receives from the machine in the @brother.com domain.
7
After the trusted domain is set you can send the document from your machine [e.g. FAX@brother.com] by
entering the E-mail address of the machine [e.g. UKFAX@brother.co.uk] that will forward the document
followed by the phone number of the fax that will receive the document. The following is an example of how

TX Verification Mail
7
Transmission Verification Mail supports two separate functions. Verification Mail for sending allows you to
request notification from the receiving station that the Internet Fax or E-mail was received and processed.
Verification Mail for receiving allows you to transmit a default report back to the sending station after
successfully receiving and processing an Internet Fax or E-mail.
To use this feature you must set the Notification option within the Setup Mail RX and
Setup Mail TX options.
Setup Mail TX
7
You can set the Notification option in the Setup Mail TX option to either On or Off. When switched
to On an additional field of information is sent with the image data. This field is named “MDN”.
MDN (Message Disposition Notification):
This field requests the status of the Internet Fax/E-mail message after delivery through the SMTP (Simple
Mail Transfer Protocol) transport system. Once the message has arrived at the receiver this data is used
when the machine or user reads or prints the received Internet Fax or E-mail. For example, if the message is
opened for reading or is printed the receiver sends back a notification to the original sending machine or user.
The receiver must support the MDN field in order to be able to send a notification report, otherwise the request
will be ignored.
Setup Mail RX
7
There are three possible settings for this option On, MDN or Off.
Receive Notification “On”
When switched to “On” a fixed message is sent back to the sender to indicate successful reception and
processing of the message. These fixed messages depend on the operation requested by the sender.
Report messages consist of:
SUCCESS: Received From <mail address>
Receive Notification “MDN”
When switched to “MDN” a report as described above is sent back to the sender if the originating station sent
the “MDN” field to request confirmation.
Receive Notification “Off”
Off switches all forms of receive notification Off, no message is sent back to the sender regardless of the
request.

To receive the TX verification mail properly, you must configure the following settings.
• Sender
• Switch Notification in the Setup Mail TX to on.
• Switch Header in the Setup Mail RX to All or Subject+From+To.
• Receiver
• Switch Notification in the Setup Mail RX to on.
Error mail
7
If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet fax, the mail server will send an error message back
to the machine and the error message will be printed. If there is an error while receiving mail, an error
message will be printed (Example: “The message being sent to the machine was not in a TIFF-F format.”).
To receive the error mail properly, you must switch Header in the Setup Mail RX to All or Subject+From+To.

Overview
8
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 124.)
 Managing your network machine securely using SNMPv3 protocol (See Secure Management using
Web Based Management (web browser) uu page 124 or Secure Management using BRAdmin
Professional 3 (Windows®) uu page 126.)
 Secure Management using BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) (See Secure Management using
BRAdmin Professional 3 (Windows®) uu page 126.)
 Printing documents securely using SSL/TLS (See Printing documents securely using SSL/TLS
uu page 127.)
8
 Sending and Receiving an E-mail securely (See Sending or Receiving an E-mail securely uu page 127.)
 Using IEEE 802.1x authentication (See Using IEEE 802.1x authentication uu page 130.)
 Certificate for secure management (See Using Certificates for device security uu page 132.)
 Managing multiple certificates (See Managing multiple certificates uu page 142.)
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 92.) If you disable FTP, the Scan to FTP
function will be disabled.
123
Security features
Managing your network machine securely using SSL/TLS
8
To manage your network machine securely, you need to use the management utilities with security protocols.
Secure Management using Web Based Management (web browser)
8
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
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 132.)
 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.

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.
8
We have three SNMP connection modes of operation.
8
 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.
125
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.
Secure Management using BRAdmin Professional 3
(Windows®)
8
To use the BRAdmin Professional 3 utility securely, you need to follow the
points below
8
8
 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 124.)
 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 124.)
 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.

Security features
Sending an E-mail with user authentication
8
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 reports and Internet fax
sending.
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.
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.
128
8
Security features
Sending or Receiving an E-mail securely using SSL/TLS
8
This machine supports SSL/TLS methods to send or receive an E-mail via an E-mail server that requires
secure SSL/TLS communication. To send or receive 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.
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 143.
• 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
POP3 over SSL/TLS: SSL

Using Certificates for device security
8
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.
132
Security features
 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 135.)
 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 140.)
• When importing a certificate and a private key. (See Import and export the certificate and private key
uu page 141.)
 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 143.)
Note
• If you are going to use SSL/TLS communication, we recommend that you contact your system
administrator first.
8
• 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 142.)

This multiple certificate feature allows you to manage each certificate that you have installed using Web
Based Management. After installing certificates, you can view what certificates are installed from the
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 134.
The Brother machine allows you to store up to four self-signed certificates or up to four certificates issued by
a CA. You can use the stored certificates for using the HTTPS/IPPS protocol, IEEE 802.1x authentication or
a Signed PDF.
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.
Note
When you use HTTPS/IPPS, IEEE 802.1x or Signed PDF, you must choose which certificate you are
using.

TCP/IP
TCP/IP
1 Router
2 Network machine (your machine)
 In a smaller network of 2 or 3 computers, we recommend the Peer-to-Peer printing method as it is easier
to configure than the Network Shared printing method. See Network Shared printing uu page 153.
 Each computer must use the TCP/IP Protocol.
 The Brother machine needs an appropriate IP address configuration.
 If you are using a router, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother
machine.
152
10
Types of network connections and protocols
Network Shared printing
10
In a Network Shared environment, each computer sends data via a centrally controlled computer. This type
of computer is often called a “Server” or a “Print Server”. Its job is to control the printing of all print jobs.
1 Client computer
2 Computer known as “Server” or “Print server”
3 TCP/IP, USB or parallel (where available)
4 Network machine (your machine)
10
 In a larger network, we recommend a Network Shared printing environment.
 The “server” or the “print server” must use the TCP/IP print protocol.
 The Brother machine needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration unless the machine is
connected via the USB or the parallel interface at the server.
153
Types of network connections and protocols
Protocols
10
TCP/IP protocols and functions
10
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 92.)
• To find what protocols your Brother machine supports, see Supported protocols and security features
uu page 173.
• For information about supported security protocols, see Security protocols uu page 170.
DHCP/BOOTP/RARP
10
By using the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, the IP address can be automatically configured.
10
Note
To use the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, please contact your network administrator.
APIPA
10
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the control panel of the machine or the BRAdmin software)
or automatically (using 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.
ARP
10
Address Resolution Protocol performs mapping of an IP address to a MAC address in a TCP/IP network.
154
Types of network connections and protocols
DNS client
10
The Brother print server supports the Domain Name System (DNS) client function. This function allows the
print server to communicate with other devices by using its DNS name.
NetBIOS name resolution
10
Network Basic Input/Output System name resolution enables you to obtain the IP address of the other device
using its NetBIOS name during the network connection.
WINS
10
Windows® Internet Name Service is an information providing service for the NetBIOS name resolution by
consolidating an IP address and a NetBIOS name that is in the local network.

The TELNET protocol allows you to control the remote network devices on a TCP/IP network from your
computer.
SNMP
10
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 170.
LLMNR
10
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.
Web Services
10
The Web Services protocol enables Windows Vista® or Windows® 7 users to install the drivers used for
printing and scanning by right-clicking the machine icon from the Network folder. (See Installing drivers used
for printing and scanning via Web Services (Windows Vista® and Windows® 7) uu page 166.) For details
about scanning using Web Services: uu Software User's Guide. The Web Services also lets you check the
current status of the machine from your computer.
HTTP
10
10
The HTTP protocol is used to transmit the data between a web server and a web browser.
Note
For details of the HTTPS protocol, see Security protocols uu page 170.
FTP (For the Scan to FTP feature)
10
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) allows the Brother machine to scan black and white or color documents
directly to an FTP server located locally on your network or on the internet.
156
Types of network connections and protocols
SNTP
10
The Simple Network Time Protocol is used to synchronize computer clocks on a TCP/IP network. You can
configure the SNTP settings using Web Based Management (web browser). (For the details, see
Synchronize with SNTP server uu page 98.)
CIFS
10
The Common Internet File System is the standard way that computer users share files and printers in
Windows®.
LDAP (DCP-8250DN, MFC-8810DW, MFC-8910DW and MFC-8950DW(T): standard,
MFC-8510DN, MFC-8520DN and MFC-8710DW: available as a download)
10
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) allows the Brother machine to search for information such
as fax numbers and E-mail addresses from an LDAP server.

Configuring your machine for a network
11
IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways
11
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
11
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:
11
If you have a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server in your network the print server will automatically obtain its IP
address from that server.
Note
On smaller networks, the DHCP server may also be the router.
11
For more information on DHCP, BOOTP and RARP, see:
Using DHCP to configure the IP address uu page 174.
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address uu page 176.
Using RARP to configure the IP address uu page 175.
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 176.
158
Configuring your machine for a network
Subnet mask
11
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)
11
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.

Configuring your machine for a network
IEEE 802.1x Authentication
11
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
11
 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
 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
160
11
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
 EAP-TLS
EAP-TLS (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Transport Layer Security) requires digital certificate
authentication both at a client and an authentication server.

MFC-8910DW and MFC-8950DW(T))
12
Specifying your network
12
SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
12
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
12
Authentication and encryption
12
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 173 for which
authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless machine supports.

Authentication and Encryption methods for a personal wireless network
12
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 164.
Authentication methods
12
 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
12
 None
No encryption method is used.
 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.

Network key
12
 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.

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,
BRAdmin applications, Remote Setup (For MFC models) or Web Based Management (web browser).
174
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, BRAdmin applications, Remote
Setup (For MFC models) 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.
175
B
Appendix B
Using BOOTP to configure the IP address
B
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, BRAdmin applications, Remote
Setup (For MFC models) 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, BRAdmin Light or Web Based Management (web browser).

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).

Appendix B
Using the TELNET console to configure the IP address
B
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.
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.
