  • Page 17: Assigning Tcp/ip Information

    CHAPTER ONE 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. By default Brother Print / Fax servers have a sample IP address of 192.0.0.192, however, you can easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network.

  • Page 18: Using The Mfc Front Panel To Allocate An Ip Address

    Using the MFC front panel to allocate an IP address. Refer to chapter 2 for details on how to configure IP address information using the MFC control panel. By using the front panel of the MFC, you can program the IP address details at the same time that other MFC parameters are configured. Using BRAdmin and the TCP/IP Protocol to set the IP address If your PC has only the TCP/IP protocol, do the following:...

    "Search Active Devices" (you can also press the F4 key) and try again. You can find the node name and MAC address by printing out the MFC configuration page. Refer to the NC-8100h Quick Setup Guide for information on how to print the configuration page on your Print / Fax server.

  • Page 20: Changing The Ip Address Using The Bradmin Application

    Changing the IP Address using the BRAdmin application Start the BRAdmin application (from Windows The BRAdmin application can use the IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols to communicate with the Brother Print / Fax server. As the default IP address of Brother Print / Fax servers is 192.0.0.192, the Print / Fax server will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme on your network.

    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...

  • Page 22: Using Arp To Configure The Print / Fax Server Ip Address

    Using ARP to Configure the Print / Fax server IP Address If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application, MFC front panel and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can also use the ARP command. ARP is the simplest method of configuring the Print / Fax server IP address.

  • Page 23: Using Rarp To Configure The Ip Address

    Using RARP to Configure the IP Address Brother Print / Fax server 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 Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the Print / Fax server and the...

    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;...

    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. If you are using the TELNET, you will be expected to enter the password of the Print / Fax server.

    Brother Print / Fax servers allow NetWare client PCs to print jobs on the same printer as TCP/IP or other network protocol users. All NetWare jobs are spooled through the Novell server and delivered to the printer when it is available.

    Users send their print requests to the file server's print queue, and the jobs are then spooled (either directly, or in the case of remote printer mode, via an intermediate Print / Fax server) to the appropriate Brother Print / Fax server.

  • Page 117: Unix/linux Using Tcp/ip

    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. The Linux operating system uses the same setup procedures as standard Berkeley UNIX systems.

  • Page 118

    Brother Print / Fax servers without the need for any special software on the host computer. For special applications, raw TCP ports are also available. The Brother NC-8100h Print / Fax server also support the FTP protocol. This protocol can be used to send print jobs from Unix systems.

    In any case, the node name in the /etc/hosts file must match the node name in the /etc/printcap file. Some systems such as HP/UX and AIX allow you to enter the IP address as the host name when setting up the print queue. If this is the case, you do not need to configure the hosts file.

    4. Skip this section if you have completed Step 3, unless you have an SCO UNIX system. If you have an HP/UX system, IBM RS/6000 AIX computer, or Sun Solaris 2.xx, there is no printcap file. This is also true for some other AT&T-based UNIX systems, as well as many VMS-based TCP/IP software packages (for example, UCX, TGV Multinet, etc.).
