For information on how to change the IP address, see Setting the IP address and subnet mask on page 12.
Gateway (and router) A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network and sends data transmitted via the network to an exact destination. The router knows where to direct data that arrives at the gateway. If a destination is located on an external network, the router transmits data to the external network.

Web Based Management Overview A standard Web Browser can be used to manage your machine using the HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). You can get the following information from a machine on your network using a web browser. Printer status information Change Fax configuration items, such as General Setup, Quick-Dial settings and Remote Fax (for MFC-7440N) Change network settings such as TCP/IP information.
How to configure the print server settings using Web Based Management (web browser) A standard web browser can be used to change your print server settings using the HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). Note To use a web browser, you will need to know the IP address or node name of the print server. Start your web browser.
You can configure and change the following Scan to FTP settings using a web browser. Click Administrator Settings on the MFC-7440N or DCP-7045N web page, and then click Scan to FTP. See Chapter 4 of the Software User’s Guide for more details on Scan to FTP.
Security features Overview This chapter explains the security features supported by your Brother machine and how to configure them. You can also learn how to manage your network printer securely. Security methods for E-mail notification The Brother print server supports the following security methods for E-mail notification.
Using E-mail notification with user authentication To use the E-mail notification function via a secure SMTP server that requires user authentication, you need to use POP before SMTP or SMTP-AUTH method. These methods prevent an unauthorized user from accessing the mail server. You can use Web Based Management (web browser), BRAdmin Professional or Web BRAdmin to configure these settings.
You can configure the POP3/SMTP settings on this page. Note • You can also change the SMTP port number using Web Based Management. This is useful if your ISP (Internet Service Provider) implements the “Outbound Port 25 Blocking (OP25B)” service, and you are not using the ISP’s SMTP server.
To use the BRAdmin Professional utility securely, you need to follow the points below. We strongly recommend to use the latest version of the BRAdmin Professional utility or Web BRAdmin that are available as a download from http://solutions.brother.com/. If you use an older version of BRAdmin to manage your brother devices the user authentication will not be secure.
Overview This chapter explains how to resolve typical network problems you may encounter when using the machine. If, after reading this chapter, you are unable to resolve your problem, please visit the Brother Solutions Center at: http://solutions.brother.com/ This chapter is divided into the following sections:...
Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print. Check to see if there is any LED activity. Brother print servers have two LEDs on the back panel of the machine. The upper orange LED shows Speed status. The lower green LED shows Link/Activity (Received/Transmit) status.
The lower LED is off: The Link/Activity LED will be off, if the print server is not connected to the network. Print the Network Configuration List and check if the settings such as IP address settings are correct for your network. The problem may be the result of a mismatched or duplicate IP address. Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the print server, and make sure that no other nodes on the network have this IP address.
Printing problems Print job is not printed Check the status and configuration of the print server are correct. Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print. Print the Network Configuration List of the machine and check if the settings such as IP address settings are correct for your network.
To add port 54926 for network PC Fax, enter the information below: 1. In Description of service: Enter any description, for example, “Brother PC Fax”. 2. In Name or IP address (for example 192.168.0.12) or the computer hosting this service on your network: Enter “Localhost”.
To add port 137 for network scanning, network printing and network PC Fax receiving, enter the information below: 1. In Description of service: Enter any description, for example, “Brother PC Fax receiving”. 2. In Name or IP address (for example 192.168.0.12) or the computer hosting this service on your network: Enter “Localhost”.
If you still have trouble with your network connection such as network scanning or printing, check File and Printer Sharing box in the Exceptions tab and then click Apply. Note After the Brother software package is installed, enable your Firewall again. Protocol-specific troubleshooting ®...
Appendix A Using services 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): Enter HELP at the command prompt for a list of supported commands.
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;...
-based systems, type: ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd The Brother print server will get the IP address from the RARP daemon when the printer is powered on. Using APIPA to configure the IP address The Brother print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, DHCP clients automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server is not available.
If your administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses 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. The ARP command only works once. For security reasons, once you have successfully configured the IP address of a Brother print server using the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address.
Java. Please note this software is not included on the CD-ROM that was supplied with your Brother product. Please visit http://solutions.brother.com/ to learn more about this software and to download it.

From the pull down menu, click Install.
Installation when using a Network Print Queue or Share (printer driver only) Note If you are going to connect to a shared printer on your network, we recommend that you ask your system administrator about the queue or share name for the printer prior to installation. Start the CD-ROM installation menu program according to the Quick Setup Guide.
