When configuring the PRINTCAP file, pay particular attention to
the service names, BINARY_P1 and TEXT_P1.
Brother Print/Fax servers appear to the network as a UNIX host
computer with a unique IP address running the lpd (line printer
daemon) protocol. As a result, any host computer that supports the
Berkeley remote LPR command can spool jobs to Brother print
servers without the need for any special software on the host
computer. For special applications, raw TCP ports are also available.
Brother Print/Fax servers also support the FTP protocol. This
protocol can be used to send print jobs from Unix systems.
The Brother Print/Fax server is pre-configured to run on a TCP/IP
network with a minimum of setup. The only mandatory configuration
of the Print/Fax server is the allocation of an IP address, which can
be either automatically assigned using DHCP, BOOTP etc., or
manually assigned using the ARP command, BRAdmin Professional
utility, or the DCP/MFC control panel.
For setting the IP address of the Print/Fax server, refer to the
Quick Setup Guide or to chapter 11 of this user guide.
General TCP/IP UNIX Host Configuration
The configuration process for most UNIX systems is described in the
following steps. As this process varies, we recommend that you refer
to your system documentation for additional information.
Configure the /etc/hosts file on each UNIX host that needs
to communicate with the Print/Fax server. Use your favorite
editor to add an entry to the /etc/hosts file containing the IP
address and node name of the device. For example:
1 - 2 UNIX PRINTING
