-ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd For AT&T UNIX-based systems, type: ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd The Brother Print / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when it is powered on. BOOTP mode BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and gateway.
In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type (1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the Print / Fax server.
STATIC, the DCP/MFC will attempt to determine its IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of the Brother network board in your DCP/MFC will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network.
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 BRN_XXXXXX (where XXXXXX is the last six digits of the Ethernet address) (up to 15 characters).
WINS CONFIG This selection controls how the DCP/MFC obtains the IP address for the WINS Server. Menu (For MFC) Press Menu (For DCP) Press Press to select Auto or Static . Press Stop/Exit Press Auto Automatically uses a DHCP request to determine the IP addresses for the primary and secondary WINS servers.
