  • Page 11: Network Shared Printing

    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 an appropriate IP address configuration unless the machine is shared via the parallel port or USB port of the server.
