    TCP/IP communications can proceed concurrently while other protocols are active, this means that UNIX, NetWare, Apple, and other computers can share the same Brother print server over an Ethernet network. The Linux operating system uses the same setup procedures as standard Berkeley UNIX systems.

  • Page 11: Tcp/ip

    BINARY_P1 and TEXT_P1. TCP/IP Brother print 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.

    The node name in this file does not necessarily need to be the same as the one that is actually configured into the Brother print server (the name that appears on the printer settings page), however, it is good practice to make the names the same.

    (for example, UCX, TGV Multinet, etc.). On SCO systems, there is a printcap file, but it is automatically configured by the rlpconf command. Most of these systems generally use a printer setup program to define the service name (remote printer), the print server name (remote machine) or IP address, and the local queue name (spool directory).

    You must now specify the remote host name, remote queue name and the input filter to use. The Remote Host name is the IP address of the printer, or the name from the hosts file which corresponds to the IP address of the printer.
