Cet appareil numérique de la classe B est conforme a la norme NMB-003 du Canada. DECLARATION OF CONFORMITY (EUROPE) Brother Industries, Ltd., 15-1, Naeshiro-cho, Mizuho-ku, Nagoya 467-8561, Japan declare that this product is in conformity with the following normative documents.
UNIX systems. Refer to this chapter for a typical GUI based Linux installation. Quick Tips: 1. The default IP address of Brother print servers is 18.104.22.168. To change it, use the print front panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin utility, the printer front panel, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
CHAPTER 1 UNIX PRINTING 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 configuration page), however, it is good practice to make the names the same. Some operating systems, such as HP/UX, do not accept the "_"...
2. Choose which print server service you want to use. There are several types of services available on Brother Print Servers. Binary services pass data through unmodified and are therefore required for PCL or PostScript rasterized graphics printouts. Text services add a carriage return at the end of each line for proper formatting of UNIX text files (which end in linefeed and do not have carriage returns).
This will create a queue named laser1 on the host computer that communicates to a Brother print server with a node name (rm) of BRN_310107 and a service name (rp) of TEXT_P1 printing text files to a Brother printer through spool directory /usr/spool/lpd/laser1.
Linux Configuration If you do not wish to use the command line interface to configure your Linux distribution, you may wish to use the Linux Printer System Manager application on your GUI. To do this, do the following: 1. From the Linux Printer System Manager screen, click the "Add" button. 2.
HP/UX Configuration In the case of HP/UX10.xx, the sam program is used to set up the remote printer. The steps are as follows: Execute the sam program. From the list of options, select Printers and Plotters 2. Select LP Spooler 3.
IBM RS/6000 AIX Configuration The RS/6000 AIX operating system uses the smit program to set up the remote printer. The procedure is as follows for AIX 4.0 and later: 1. Enter smit and select "devices" 2. Select "Printer/Plotter" 3. Select "Print Spooling" 4.
Sun Solaris 2.x Configuration Sun Solaris 2.x uses the lpsystem and lpadmin programs for remote printer configuration: lpsystem -t bsd prnservername lpadmin -p queue -s prnservername!prnserverservice (not required on newer Solaris systems) accept queue (not required on newer Solaris systems) enable queue Where queue is the name of the local print queue.
5. Edit the /etc/printcap file to include formfeed add the text rp=lpaf SCO UNIX requires TCP/IP V1.2 or later to work with Brother print servers. You must first configure the /etc/hosts and /etc/printcap files as described in step 2. Then run the sysadmsh program as follows: 1.
IBM/AS4000 To use a Brother print server with an IBM AS/400 running IBM’s TCP/IP gateways services for OS/400 (the OS/400 system must be v3.1 or later) Use the CFGTCP command at your OS/400 prompt to add the print server’s TCP/IP address to the AS/400 host table.
(tell them that the print server looks like a remote UNIX host computer running the lpd line printer daemon). If you have not created a spool directory for the Brother print server on your UNIX host computer, you will need to do so now (the printer setup utilities in HP/UX, AIX, Solaris 2.xx, and other systems will automatically create the spool directory).

Brother's Brother Internet Print (BIP ) software, for Windows 95/98/Me/NT4.0, allows a PC user at one location, to send a print job to a Brother Printer at a remote location via the Internet. For example, a user on a PC in New York could print a document directly from his Microsoft Excel application program to a printer in Paris.
When a job is printed to the BIP virtual port, it is actually MIME-encoded (converted to a standard Internet E-mail message) and sent out to a Brother print server at the remote location using Winsock This means that BIP is compatible with most common E-mail software packages.
1. Configure the POP3 server on the E-mail server at the remote site with a mail account (Mailbox name) and password for the Brother print server (generally, the mail account name will be the first part of the Email address;...

Printing Overview Brother Print Servers allow NetWare client PCs to print jobs on the same printer as TCP/IP or other network protocol users. All NetWare jobs are spooled through the Novell server and delivered to the printer when it is available.
CHAPTER 6 NOVELL NETWARE PRINTING General Information In order to use a Brother print server on a NetWare network, one or more file servers must be configured with a print queue that the print server can service. Users send their print requests to the file server's print queue, and the jobs are then spooled (either directly, or in the case of remote printer mode, via an intermediate print server) to the appropriate Brother print server.
Creating a NDPS Printer Using NWADMIN for NetWare5 With NetWare 5, Novell has released a new preferred printing system called Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS). Before the Print Server can be configured, NDPS must be installed on the NetWare 5 server and an NDPS Manager configured on the server.
5. You must now specify the type of connection that you are going to use. There are four possible options. Select the LPR over IP option. 6. Enter the relevant details of the printer and Brother recommend typing Binary_P1 for the printer name. Click finish and wait. Select the printer drivers for the client operating systems.
Brother's BRAdmin utility is a Windows-based application that provide similar functionality to the NetWare PCONSOLE utility (or the NWADMIN utility in NetWare 4.1x or later). To use the BRAdmin application to configure a Brother print server under NetWare, make sure that you are logged in as SUPERVISOR (NetWare 2.xx or 3.xx) or ADMIN (NetWare 4.1x or later) and perform the appropriate steps...
Be careful! Changing the name may impact the configuration of other protocols because the print server service names will be altered. Brother NC-2000 series print servers such as the NC-2010h or the NC-2100h have a default print server name of BRO_xxxxxx_P1.
TREE and Context information along with the queue name information in this Window. Click on the Close button. Your Brother print server will now log into the appropriate NetWare server. Now exit the BRAdmin application. You are ready to print.
(Queue Server Mode in NDS mode) using Novell NWADMIN and BRAdmin If you do not wish to use the Brother BRAdmin application solely to configure your NetWare file server, use the following instructions for configuration using the NWADMIN application in conjunction with the BRAdmin application.
BRO_xxxxxx if it is a NC-2000 series print server, where "xxxxxx" is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (MAC address)). Double click the appropriate Brother print server. You will be prompted for a password, the default password is "access". Now select the NetWare tab.
Configuring the Brother Print Server (Remote Server Mode in NDS mode) using Novell NWAdmin and BRAdmin To configure a Brother print server for remote printer mode with NWADMIN (NetWare Administrator utility) and BRAdmin, you will need to perform the following steps: 1.
BRAdmin and you can find the BRCONFIG in the menu "Start/Program/Brother BRAdmin utilities". Otherwise you can find it in the "Brother Print Server Configuration Utility" diskette. Note that if desired, you may use a WWW browser or TELNET utility - instead of the BRCONFIG utility).
Configuration Utility diskette in drive A: and type the following at the DOS prompt: A:BRCONFIG or A:BRCONFIG PrintServerName Where PrintServerName is the NetWare print service name of the Brother print server (the default name is BRN_xxxxxx_P1 or BRO_xxxxxx_P1, where "xxxxxx" is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (MAC address)).
8. Type EXIT to exit the BRCONFIG remote console program and save the changes and start the Novell PCONSOLE utility. 9. Select Print Server Information (NetWare 3.xx) or Print Servers (NetWare 4.1x; ignore the warning message) from the Available Options menu. 10.
Configuring the Brother Print Server (Queue Server Mode in NDS mode) using PCONSOLE and BRCONFIG 1. Make sure that you are logged in as ADMIN in NDS mode on the NetWare 4.1x file server. 2. Run the PCONSOLE utility from PC workstation.
18. Execute the BRCONFIG from the Windows menu or insert the Brother Print Server Configuration Utility diskette in Drive A: of your PC and type: A:BRCONFIG.

Consult your Macintosh documentation for instructions on how to do this. Before you try to use the Brother Print Server, you must firstly enable the EtherTalk protocol from the Network Control Panel on the Macintosh. If the EtherTalk protocol is not selected, or the Network Control Panel does not exist, you must use Apple's Network Installer software to add these capabilities.
CHAPTER 7 APPLETALK (ETHERTALK) TCP/IP PRINTING Operation Once the print server is installed and the printer is powered on, the Brother print server AppleTalk service name (default is BRN_xxxxxx_P1_AT, where "xxxxxx" is the last six digits of the Ethernet address (MAC address) should appear in the Chooser.
CHAPTER 7 APPLETALK (ETHERTALK) TCP/IP PRINTING How to Select the Print Server (TCP/IP) Apple has developed the "Desktop Printer" utility, this can be found from the Apple menu (this is only available from System 8.6 or later). When you run it you will see the following screen: Figure 3 Selecting LPR Printing 1.
CHAPTER 7 APPLETALK (ETHERTALK) TCP/IP PRINTING 2. At this point we must select the correct PPD file for the printer and also configure the correct LPR information. Click the "Change" button in the "PostScript Printer Description (PPD) File" section. Insert the CD-ROM that contains the PPD file for the printer and select the appropriate PPD file.
CHAPTER 7 APPLETALK (ETHERTALK) TCP/IP PRINTING Changing the Configuration From a Macintosh, the easiest way to change the printer or print server parameters is to use a web browser. Simply connect to the printer using the format: http://ip_address where ip_address is the address of the printer.

PC as a server for handling network print jobs. All of the other PCs send their print jobs to the server PC using NetBEUI or TCP/IP, and the server PC then uses DLC to send the print jobs to the Brother print server. CHAPTER 8 DLC PRINTING...
Printing from DEC LAT Systems Overview Brother print servers are equipped with the LAT protocol. If you are already familiar with configuring DEC servers or compatible terminal servers in your network, you can use similar procedures to configure a Brother print server.
CHAPTER 9 LAT NETWORK CONFIGURATION LAT Concepts A Brother printer server will be a node on the network that offers a printing service to other nodes on the network. A node is simply a device, such as a host computer, terminal server, or print server.
VMS LAT Host Configuration The configuration process requires that you have system manager privileges. Before starting the LAT configuration process, you must first make sure that LAT has been started on your system. If you are currently using terminal servers on your network, then LAT has probably already been activated.
2. Use the VMS editor to create a text file with the necessary configuration commands (alternatively, you may edit the file LAT$SYSTARTUP.COM for VMS 5.5-x and later systems or LTLOAD.COM for earlier VMS systems). For instance, the following sample command file creates a queue named XJ on LAT port 33 for a print server with a default node name of BRN_310107 using the LATSYM processor and the default VMS form: $MCR LATCP...
3. Execute the command file you have just created by typing "@" plus the file name in response to the VMS "$" prompt (for example, @LATSTART.COM). For additional convenience, you may want to include the "@filename" command in your system startup file so that the procedure is executed automatically when the system is booted.
CHAPTER 9 LAT NETWORK CONFIGURATION Eliminating Blank Pages When printing through VMS, a blank page is often printed after each job. To eliminate this blank page, first create a text file with the following contents: <ESC>]VMS;2<ESC>\ where <ESC> is the escape character (ASCII 27) and "VMS" is in uppercase. Then insert this file into your default library (normally SYSDEVCTL.TLB), and specify it as a setup module in your form (stop and reset all queues that use the library before doing this procedure).
PATHWORKS for DOS Configuration To configure the print server for PATHWORKS for DOS: 1. Create a VMS queue as previously described. 2. Run PCSA_MANAGER on the VMS system Type MENU to get the PCSA menu. Select SERVICE OPTIONS Select ADD SERVICE (do not use the ADD PRINTER QUEUE option as this will add a PCL printer reset that will affect PostScript printing.
PATHWORKS for Windows 95/98/NT4.0 1. To configure the print server for PATHWORKS for Windows: 2. Click on the Start button and select Settings and then Printers. 3. Click on ADD Printer to start the Add Printer Wizard. 4. Click on Next. 5.
PATHWORKS for Macintosh Configuration If you are using PATHWORKS for Macintosh, you will need to make sure that you have a bi-directional channel (in other words, you did NOT enter the command SET SERVICE servicename RECEIVE ENABLED from the remote console). Then create a LAT port using LATCP as shown in the following example (sub-stitute your actual node name and LAT port number): CREATE PORT LTA53:/APPLICATION...
DECprint Supervisor Configuration Notes If you want to use the Brother print server with the DECprint Supervisor software, you must have the DCPS-Open option in order to support Brother printers (you may also need to modify the DCPS device control modules and queue setup to handle "unrecognized"...
3. Edit the /etc/ttys file to add a line similar to the following for each LAT connection: tty05 "etc/getty std.9600" vt100 off nomodem #LAT (substitute your actual tty number in place of "tty05"). 4. Verify that you have created valid LAT tty devices with the command: file /dev/tty* | grep LAT Valid LAT devices will have a "39"...
6. You now need to establish a host-initiated connection. For example: lcp -h tty05:BRN_310107:P1 7. Make the spool directory as shown in the following example: cd /usr/spool mkdir lp1 chown daemon lp1 Again substitute your actual printer name for "lp1". 8.
CHAPTER 9 LAT NETWORK CONFIGURATION Installation on Other Host Computers Installation procedures differ somewhat for other DEC operating systems (e.g., RSTS/E and RSX-11M-PLUS). Refer to the appropriate DEC documentation for information on setting up LAT print queues on these systems. 9-13...
Systems Overview Brother print servers allow printers to be shared on a Banyan VINES network. Users on client PCs send their jobs to any VINES file server running the Banyan PCPrint software, which in turn spools the jobs to the print server. Printing is transparent to user applications, and the print server can be managed using standard VINES utilities like MANAGE, MSERVICE, MUSER and the Operator Console printer control.
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION Necessary items to use a Brother print server on a VINES network Banyan's PCPrint software (a Banyan-supplied software option that is installed on the VINES file server). 10-2...
The first step in the configuration process is to configure the file server so that the Brother print server can log into the Banyan VINES network. To do this, you will need to configure a StreetTalk user name for the print server (all VINES print servers log into the file server as users).
PCPrint and press ENTER. If the PCPrint option is not installed, PCPrint will not appear on this screen. You must have PCPrint installed in order to use an Brother print server. 12. When you get the Destination Attributes screen, enter the StreetTalk name of the Brother print server and an optional description.
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION 13. You will get the Output strings menu. This screen allows you to define strings of characters that can be sent before and after the print job to put the printer in a particular state (for example, duplex mode). The default values will work OK for most applications.
Print Server Configuration Using BRAdmin The last step is to add the StreetTalk login name to the Brother print server and to associate the file server queue with one of the services on the print server. The procedure is as follows: 1.
BINARY_P1). SET BAnyan HOp nn Sets number of hops between the Brother print server and the Banyan file server. The default value is 2, which is adequate for most sites, but you will need to change this value if the file server is more than two hops away from the print server.
Quick Tips: 1. The default IP address of Brother print servers is 188.8.131.52. To change it, use the print front panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin utility, the printer front panel, or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
CHAPTER 11 WEB BASED MANAGEMENTR How to connect to your printer using a Browser Type "http://printers IP Address /" into your browser (you can also use the NetBIOS name of the print server, if you are in Microsoft Windows domain/Workgroup environment).
Other Sources of Information 1. Visit http://solutions.brother.com printing. 2. Refer to chapter 12 of this user guide to learn how to configure the IP address of the printer. 11-3 CHAPTER 11 WEB BASED MANAGEMENTR for more information on network...
IP address. Use the following information to learn about IP address configuration. By default Brother print servers have a sample IP address of 184.108.40.206, however, you can easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network.
Other ways to CHANGE the IP address once it is already set: 1. TELNET 2. HTTP (Web browser) 3. Other SNMP based management utility These configuration methods are described in the following paragraphs. 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 router (gateway).
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using the printer front panel to allocate an IP address (printers with LCD panels only) Refer to the Quick setup guide for details on how to configure IP address information using the printer control panel. By using the front panel of the printer, you can program the IP address details at the same time that other printer parameters are configured.
Start the BRAdmin utility (from Windows 95/98/Me, NT4.0, Windows 2000). The BRAdmin utility can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols to communicate with the Brother print server. As the default IP address of Brother print servers is 220.127.116.11, the print server will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme on your network.
5. Input the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway (If needed) of your print server. 6. Click OK then select Close. 7. With the correctly programmed IP address, you will see the Brother print server in the device list. 12-5...
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using DHCP to Configure the IP address Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have DHCP Server in your network (typically a Unix, Windows NT/2000 or Novell Netware network) the print server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
If your Administrator has configured the system to deliver IP adresses 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.
-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 it is powered on. 12-8...
Using BOOTP to Configure the IP Address 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;...
Server configuration information. Put the printer back on-line again by pressing the SEL button. For internal Print Servers that are connected to a Brother printer which do not have an LCD panel, refer to your printer user guide for instructions on how to print out a configuration page.
On a NetWare networks, you can use the BRCONFIG utility which are included with every print server. If you are using the remote console, you will get the message Console connected (VMS) or Connection established (BRCONFIG) or Remote console reserved (ULTRIX).
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION The leftmost group of digits in your IP address can identify the type of network you have. The value of this group ranges from 192 through 255 for Class C networks (e.g., 18.104.22.168), 128 through 191 for Class B networks (e.g.,22.214.171.124), and 1 through 127 for Class A networks (e.g., 126.96.36.199).
Changing the IP Address settings with the TELNET Console You can also use the TELNET command to change the IP address. Using TELNET is effective way, when you change the IP address. But a valid IP address must already be programmed into the print server. If you are using the TELNET, you will be expected to enter the password of the print server.
CHAPTER THIRTEEN Troubleshooting Overview This chapter describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you may encounter with a Brother Print Server, it is divided into the following sections: 1. Installation Problems 2. Intermittent Problems 3. Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting 13-1 CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING...
Installation problems If you cannot print over the network, check the following: 1. Make sure that the printer is powered on, is on-line and ready to print. Verify that the printer and the configuration are good by printing the configuration page. Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for information on how to print the configuration page on your print server.
(make sure that you have entered the print server name). If you can see Print Server Status and Control in the menu, then the Brother print server is visible to the network, proceed to the Novel NetWare Installation Troubleshooting Section. Otherwise, go to step 3.
Ethernet addresses to pass through (a process known as filtering); therefore, such a bridge must be configured to allow Brother print server addresses. Likewise, a router can be set up to pass only certain protocols, so be sure that the desired protocol can be passed through to the print server.
1. If you can print small jobs but large graphics jobs are distorted or incomplete, make sure that you have adequate memory in your printer and the latest printer driver installed on your computer. The latest Brother printer drivers can be downloaded from www.brother.com.
TCP/IP Troubleshooting If you are using TCP/IP and cannot print to the print server and you have checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, then check the following: It is always a good idea to try following in order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors.
UNIX Troubleshooting 1. Make sure that the /etc/printcap file (if applicable) is typed in correctly. In particular, look for missing ":" and "\" characters, because a small error anywhere in the file can have major consequences. Also check the /usr/spool directory to make sure that you have created a valid spool directory.
(over 1MB), add the line mx#0 to your etc/printcap file entry. 11. If you cannot print from DEC TCP/IP Service for VMS (UCX), make sure that you have version 2.0B or later of this software, because earlier versions will not work with Brother print servers. 13-8 CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING...
Windows NT/LAN Server (TCP/IP) Troubleshooting If you are having trouble printing with Windows NT or LAN Server, check the following: 1. Make sure that TCP/IP and TCP/IP print service are installed and running on the Windows NT system or the LAN Server file server. 2.
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer network (LPR method), check the following: 1. Make sure that the Brother LPR Port driver is correctly installed and configured according to the Windows 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer chapters. You may find that during the installation of BLP software, the screen that prompts you for a Port name is not displayed.
Windows 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer (HP JetAdmin compatible method) Troubleshooting If you are having trouble printing on a Windows 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer network, check the following (HP JetAdmin compatible method): 1. If the print server does not show up under JetAdmin on a Windows 95/98/Me Peer-to-Peer network, try removing all of the Windows 95/98/Me network software from the Network Control panel and then reinstalling them as follows:...
If you are having trouble printing on a Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 (or later) Peer-to- Peer network (NetBIOS), check the following: 1. Make sure that the Brother NetBIOS Port driver is securely installed and configured according to the Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 Peer-to-Peer (NetBIOS) chapters.
3. You can also enable the partial e-mail print facility on your client PC, this will split the e-mail up into fragments which should then not overwhelm your e-mail server. To do this, select the property dialog of the Brother Internet Print Port.
“Get More Info” option in Windows 2000 will not function. If you wish to use the “Get More Info” option use the following URL: http://ip_address This will then force Windows 2000 to use Port 80 to communicate with the Brother print server. Windows 95/98/Me clients not able to get the driver from a Windows 2000 system.
If you cannot print from NetWare and you have checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, first verify that the Brother print server is attached to the server queue by going to PCONSOLE, selecting PRINT QUEUE INFORMATION, and then CURRENTLY ATTACHED SERVERS.
1. If you changed the login password, you must change the password in both the Brother print server (using the SET NETWARE PASSWORD command if you are using the BRConfig software) or by using a web browser or the BRAdmin utility and in the file server (using the PCONSOLE Print Server Information Change Password command).
AppleTalk Troubleshooting If you cannot print from an AppleTalk for Macintosh computer and you have checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, then check the following: 1. Make sure that you are running Phase 2 AppleTalk and that you have selected the correct network interface from the Network Control Panel on the Macintosh.
DLC/LLC Troubleshooting If you are having trouble printing with DLC/LLC, check the following: 1. Make sure that the DLC/LLC protocol is enabled using either BRAdmin, a web browser or TELNET. 2. Make sure that the MAC address of the Windows setting is as same as the print configuration page result.
LAT Troubleshooting If you cannot print from a VMS system and you have checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, then check the following (note that it is always a good idea to try creating a new queue with a different LAT port to reduce the possibility of setup errors): 1.
7. Make sure that PROCESSOR=LATSYM is enabled on your VMS print queue if you get any of the following symptoms: The queue pauses when you power off the print server for no apparent reason. The print server generates excessive LAT traffic on the network Only one host computer can access the print server, others are locked out.
Banyan VINES Troubleshooting If you are having trouble printing with Banyan VINES, check the following: 1. Make sure that you have the Banyan VINES PCPrint software option installed. 2. Make sure that the Banyan protocol is enabled. 3. If there are more than two hops (i.e., more than two routers) between the print server and the file server, make sure that you have changed the hop count to the appropriate number via BRAdmin or the print server console.
Web Browser Troubleshooting (TCP/IP) 1. If you can not connect to the print server using your web browser it may be worth checking the Proxy Settings of your browser. Look in the Exceptions setting and if necessary, type in the IP address of the print server. This will stop your PC from trying to connect to your ISP or proxy server every time you wish to look at the printer server.
It can also be used to upgrade the firmware of the print server. HTTP (Recommended) Use your favorite web browser to connect to the Brother print server. This will allow you to configure print server parameters. JetAdmin or WebJetAdmin Brother’s print server range is HP JetAdmin and WebJetAdmin compatible.
BRCONFIG Brother BRCONFIG utility runs on the DOS system prompt and is installed with BRAdmin. To connect the print server using the Brother BRCONFIG NetWare utility, Choose the BRCONFIG utility from the Brother BRAdmin utilities menu or insert the Brother BRAdmin utility diskette into Drive A and type: A:BRCONFIG at the DOS system prompt.
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):...
(refer to your Quick Setup Guide for information on how to print a configuration page). There are three methods of upgrading the firmware in your Brother print server: 1. Use the BRAdmin application (Recommended) 2. Use the FTP protocol (Recommended if running on Macintosh or Unix network) 3.
Reloading firmware using BRAdmin The BRAdmin utility can be used to easily re-program your Brother print server. 1. Start the BRAdmin software. 2. Highlight the appropriate print server. Then press select the Control menu and choose Load Firmware. You can select more than one print server by pressing CTRL+<select>...
APPENDIX Reloading process The Data LED on the printer front panel will blink during the firmware file loading process and then Alarm LED will turn on and the Ready LED will blink during the programming process, and the printer will restart automatically after the programming has completed.
APPENDIX Reloading using the FTP Protocol from a command prompt By specifying the print server PASSWORD AS THE USERNAME when logging on, it becomes possible to upgrade the firmware of the print server or printer (if supported). The following example assumes that the print server password is “cambridge”...
