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.
IP address. Use the following information to learn about IP address configuration. By default Brother Print / Fax servers have a sample IP address of 188.8.131.52, however, you can easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network.
5. Input the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway (If needed) of your Print / Fax server. 6. Click OK then select Close. 7. With the correctly programmed IP address, you will see the Brother Print / Fax server in the device list.
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using BRAdmin and the IPX/SPX Protocol to set the IP address If your PC has Novell Netware Client software and is using the IPX/SPX protocol, do the following: 1. Select IPX/SPX filter in the left frame of the main window. 2.
Brother Print / Fax server. As the default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 184.108.40.206, the Print / Fax server will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme on your network. If you are not using DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you will want to change the IP address.
CHAPTER 1 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 a DHCP Server in your ® ® network (typically a Unix, Windows /2000 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 name services.
If your Administrator has configured the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP or RARP your Brother Print / Fax 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 / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when it is powered on.
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 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;...
CHAPTER 1 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION 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 / Fax server.
Front Panel Setup Menu LAN Main Setup Menu The LAN menu selections allow you to setup the Brother FAX/MFC for your network and Internet Fax configuration. Press [Menu] then press the appropriate number for LAN, based on the selections displayed on your machine. After you...
-ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd For AT&T UNIX-based systems, type: ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd The Brother Print / Fax server will get the IP address from the rarp daemon when it is powered on. BOOTP mode BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and gateway.
CHAPTER 2 FRONT PANEL SETUP MENU 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.
STATIC, the FAX/MFC will attempt to determine its IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of the Brother network board in your FAX/MFC will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your network manager for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.

Configuring DLC on Other Systems To use DLC on other network systems, you will generally need vendor-supplied software. Typically such software will support the Brother Print / Fax servers. Follow the vendor's instructions to install the DLC protocol on your system.
UNIX systems. Refer to this chapter for a typical GUI based Linux installation. Quick Tips: 1. The default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 188.8.131.52. To change it, use the print front panel (if applicable), the BRAdmin application or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the FAX/MFC.
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING 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 / Fax 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 / Fax server (the name that appears on the printer configuration page), however, it is good practice to make the names the same.
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING 2. Choose which Print / Fax server service you want to use. There are several types of services available on Brother Print / Fax servers. Binary services pass data through unmodified and are therefore required for PCL or PostScript rasterized graphics printouts.
This will create a queue named laser1 on the host computer that communicates to a Brother Print / Fax 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.
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING 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.
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING 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.
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING 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.
CHAPTER 12 UNIX PRINTING 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 accept queue (not required on newer Solaris systems) enable queue (not required on newer Solaris systems) Where queue is the name of the local print queue.
4. Deselect "Use External remote Printing Protocol…" 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 / Fax servers. You must first configure the /etc/hosts and /etc/printcap files as described in step 2.
IBM/AS4000 To use a Brother Print / Fax 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 / Fax server’s TCP/IP address to the AS/400 host table.
UNIX host computer running the lpd line printer daemon). 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...
