  • Page 11: Introduction

    Introduction Computer Network Basics Overview The network-connected Brother machine allows multiple computers to carry out several independent print jobs on one machine. To use the Brother machine through a network, you need to select a protocol, configure the Print / Fax Server, and set up the computers you use.

  • Page 12: Protocol Configuration Items

    Protocol Configuration Items TCP/IP Configuration • IP Address • Gateway (when routers exist on your network) IP Address An IP address is a series of numbers that identifies each computer connected to the Internet. An IP address consists of four numbers separated by dots.

  • Page 13

    Gateway (and Router) A Gateway is the transfer device that passes data between networks. 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.

  • Page 14: Network Connection

    Network Connection Types of Network There are various ways to configure and arrange networks and network printing depending on the office environment and requirements. We recommend to use this product in a Peer to Peer environment in which each computer directly sends and receives data to and from the Brother machine.

  • Page 15: Network Example

    Network Example Example : Peer-to-Peer (TCP/IP) Windows Windows UNIX Router TCP/IP TCP/IP • Each computer needs the TCP/IP and Print Protocol configured. • The Brother machine needs to have an IP address configured. • If a TCP/IP environment has been already established, we recommend using Peer-to-Peer.

Before using this function, you have to configure the necessary machine settings, such as Setup TCP/IP and Setup Internet of the LAN Main Setup menu by using the machine’s control panel as indicated in chapter 3.

  • Page 18: Tcp/ip Configuration

    TCP/IP Configuration Assigning TCP/IP Information (Basic) 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.

  • Page 19: Using The Machine's Control Panel To Allocate An Ip Address

    Using the machine’s control panel to allocate an IP address Refer to chapter 3 for details on how to configure IP address information using the machine’s control panel.

  • Page 23

    Depending on the system, this entry might be called “bootps” instead of “bootp”. In order to enable BOOTP, simply use an editor to delete the “#” (if there is no “#”, then BOOTP is already enabled). Then edit the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type (1 for Ethernet), Ethernet address and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the Print/Fax server.
