Protocols

TCP/IP protocols and functions

Protocols are the standardized sets of rules for transmitting data on a network. Protocols allow users to gain
access to network connected resources.
The print server used on the Brother machine supports the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol) protocol.
TCP/IP is the most popular set of protocols used for communication such as Internet and E-mail. This protocol
can be used in almost all operating systems such as Windows
The following TCP/IP protocols are available on the Brother machine.
Note
• You can configure the protocol settings by using the HTTP interface (web browser). (See How to configure
the machine settings using Web Based Management (web browser) uu page 46.)
• To find what protocols your Brother machine supports, see Supported protocols and security features
uu page 107.
• For information about supported security protocols, see Security protocols uu page 104.
DHCP/BOOTP/RARP
By using the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, the IP address can be automatically configured.
Note
To use the DHCP/BOOTP/RARP protocols, please contact your network administrator.
APIPA
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the control panel (for LCD models) of the machine or the
BRAdmin software) or automatically (using a DHCP/BOOTP/RARP server), the Automatic Private IP
Addressing (APIPA) protocol will automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to
169.254.254.255.
ARP
Address Resolution Protocol performs mapping of an IP address to a MAC address in a TCP/IP network.
