Unix Printing Printing from Unix/Linux Using TCP/IP Overview Brother Print/Fax servers are supplied with the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite. Since virtually all UNIX host computers support TCP/IP, this capability allows a printer to be shared on a UNIX Ethernet network. As with all protocols, 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...
When configuring the PRINTCAP file, pay particular attention to the service names, BINARY_P1 and TEXT_P1. TCP/IP 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.
The actual format of the entry may vary depending on your system, check your system documentation and also note the format of other entries in the /etc/hosts file. 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/Fax server (the name that appears on the printer configuration page), however, it is good practice to...
Configure the /etc/printcap file on each host computer to specify the local print queue, the Print/Fax server name (also called remote machine or rm), and the Print/Fax server service name (also called remote printer, remote queue, or rp), and the spool directory.
The rm and rp options are not available on some UNIX systems, so if necessary check your documentation to determine the equivalent options. Users of Berkeley-compatible UNIX systems can use the lpc command to obtain the printer status: %lpc status laser1: queuing is enabled printing is enabled...
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: From the Linux Printer System Manager screen, click the Add button.
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. Select LP Spooler. Select Printers and Plotters. Select Actions and then Add Remote Printer/Plotter.
Earlier versions of HP-UX use similar procedures to 10.xx users: Enter sam and select Peripheral Devices and then Add Remote Printer (not Networked printer). Enter the following remote printer settings (the other settings do not matter): ■ Line printer name (user-selectable). ■...
The procedure for pre-V4.0 systems is as follows. Enter smit and select devices. Select printer/plotter. Select manage remote printer subsystem. Select client services. Select remote printer queues. Select add a remote queue. Enter the following remote queue settings: ■ Name of queue to add (user selectable). ■...
If this is the first printer configured, you must also use the lpsched command prior to the accept command. As an alternative, you may use Printer Manager in the Admintool utility under OpenWindows. Select Edit, Add, and Add Access to Remote Printer.
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: Select Printers. Select Configure. Select Add. Enter the name of the print queue you entered in the /etc/printcap file as the Printer name.
Use the following one-line OS/400 command to create the LPD queue: CRTOUTQ OUTQ(<queuename> RMSTSYS (*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ(<service>) AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE (*OTHER) MFRTYPMDL (<driver>) INTNETADR('<ipaddress>') TEXT ('<description>') where <queuename> is the new AS/400 print queue name, <service> is the Print/Fax server service name (BINARY_P1 or TEXT_P1) <driver>...
If you have not created a spool directory for the Brother Print/Fax 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). The lpd spool directory is usually located in the /usr/spool directory (check with your system manager to see if the location is different for your system).

TCP/IP Configuration Assigning TCP/IP Information Overview The TCP/IP protocol requires that each device on the network have it's own unique IP address. Use the following information to learn about IP address configuration. The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol automatically assigns an IP address from the range: 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255.
Using the machine control panel to allocate an IP address (Models with LCD panels only) For details on how to configure IP address information using the machine control panel , see chapter 10 of this User’s Guide. By using the control panel on the machine, you can program the IP address details at the same time that other machine parameters are configured.
The BRAdmin Professional utility can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols to communicate with the Brother Print/Fax server. If you wish to use the TCP/IP protocol to manage the Print/Fax server make sure that the Print/Fax server has a valid IP address. If you are not using DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you will want to change the IP address.There are two ways to change the IP address using the BRAdmin Professional utility:...
In the IP Config box, click the Static radio button. Click OK. Restart the print server by using BRAdmin Professional utility or Web Browser. If you are not sure how to restart the print server, you may simply turn the machine’s power switch off, and then switch it on. Using BRAdmin Professional utility and the TCP/ IP Protocol to set the IP address If your PC is using the TCP/IP protocol, do the following:...
Using DHCP to Configure the IP address The 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/Linux, Windows NT 4.0, ® Windows 2000, XP or Novell Netware network) the Print/Fax server will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic...
Using ARP to Configure the Print/Fax Server IP Address If you are unable to use the BRAdmin Professional utility or the FAX\MFC’s control panel and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can also use the ARP command. The ARP command is ®...
Unix/Linux Systems Typically, Unix systems require the colon “ : ” character between each digit of the Ethernet address. arp -s 126.96.36.199 00:80:77:31:01:07 You must be on the same Ethernet segment (that is, there cannot be a router between the Print/Fax server and operating system) to use the arp -s command.
Using RARP to Configure the IP Address The Brother Print/Fax server’s IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (rarp) facility on your host computer. This is done by editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an entry similar to the following: 00:80:77:31:01:07 BRN_310107...
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;...
Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included a download filename in the configuration file; if this is the case, simply create a null file on the host and specify the name of this file and its path in the configuration file.
Internet FAX (MFC Only) Overview Internet Faxing (I-FAX) allows you to send and receive FAX documents using the Internet as the transport mechanism. Documents are transmitted in E-mail messages as attached TIFF-F files. This means that PC's are also able to receive and send documents, providing that the PC has as an application that can ®...
Getting Connected Before sending or receiving an Internet Fax you must configure your Brother MFC to communicate with your network and mail server. You must ensure the following: a correctly configured IP address for your MFC, an E-mail address for your MFC, the mail server(s) IP address, mailbox name and password for your Brother MFC.
Sending an Internet Fax Sending an Internet Fax is the same as sending a normal Fax. If you have already programmed the addresses of the Internet Fax receivers into the MFC as Speed-Dial locations, you can send the Internet Fax by loading the document into the MFC, use the Fax Resolution key to set the preferred resolution and select a Speed- Dial number and pressing Start.
By pressing the appropriate number key the correct number of times, you can access the character you want. Once Twice Three times Four times If you want to enter a blank space, press twice. If you specify more than 16 characters, the LCD panel will scroll the name to the left character by character.
If you specify more than 16 characters, the LCD panel will scroll the name to the left character by character. You can enter up to 60 characters. Start Press to send the document. After the document is scanned, it is transmitted to the Recipient Internet Fax Machine automatically via your SMTP server.
If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received data will be held in the MFC's memory. This data will be printed automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine. (For European, Asian and Oceanian MFCs, Memory receive must be switched “ON”.) If the received mail is not in a plain text format or an attached file is not in the TIFF-F format, the following error message will be printed:...
This can be done using the Web Management Utility or through the front panel. The steps for configuring Fax Forward can be found in the User’s Guide supplied with your MFC. Relay Broadcasting This function allows the Brother MFC to receive a document over the Internet, and then relay it to other fax machines through conventional telephone lines.
Your MFC has an E-mail address of FAX@brother.com, you wish to send a document from this machine to another MFC in England with an E-mail address of UKFAX@brother.co.uk, this machine will then forward the document to a standard fax machine using a conventional telephone line.
Relay Broadcast from a PC Your PC UKFAX@brother.co.uk 123456789 INTERNET UKFAX@brother.co.uk (fax#123456789) You can also send E-mail from your PC and have it relayed to a conventional FAX machine. The method of entering the phone number of the conventional FAX machine that will receive the relayed E-mail will vary depending on the mail application you are using.
To use this feature you must set the Notification option within the Setup Mail RX and Setup Mail TX options. Setup Mail (TX) You can set the Notification option in the Setup Mail TX option to either ON or OFF. When switched to ON an additional field of information is sent with the image data.
Error mail If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet Fax, the mail server will send an error message back to the MFC and the error message will be printed. If there is an error while receiving mail, an error message will be printed (Example: “The message being sent to the MFC was not in a TIFF-F format.”).

Make sure that the AppleTalk protocol of the Print/Fax server is enabled. If you have a large network, make sure that you have the Laser Writer V8.xx or equivalent driver, since earlier versions may cause PostScript errors. Also, verify that you get the correct printer information when you select Printer Info from the Setup button in the Chooser.
Internet Fax Troubleshooting If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet Fax, the mail server will send an error message back to the machine and the error message will be printed. If there is an error while receiving mail, an error message is printed (Ex.
The Relay Broadcasting and Broadcasting features cannot be used at the same time. Relay Broadcast can support the relay of a document up to a maximum of 48 Fax machines through conventional telephone lines. If sending to more than 48 locations the sender must divide the transmission locations into 48 locations or less for each relay broadcast.
