How to Configure TCP/IP printing


(Windows NT

4.0)





Users of Windows NT can print directly to a network ready Brother FAX/MFC using the TCP/IP

protocol. However you must install Microsoft's "TCP/IP printing" protocol fo
r this feature to work.

Configuring an IP Address for the Network Board (Print
Server)

You must now register an IP address into the Brother Network Board (print server). There are
several ways of doing this:

You can use the

front panel buttons to change the IP address, subnet mask and gateway address.
The Network Board also understands automatic IP address allocation methods such as DHCP or
BOOTP


OR


You can use the Web browser or BRadmin32 Windows utility to change the IP
address. However,
these applications require that the NC
-
8000 be already configured with a valid IP address. You
must ensure that the NC
-
8000 is configured correctly before you can use either of these two
approaches.

Note

For information on DHCP or BOOTP, refer to the “How to Configure TCP/IP printing for Unix
System” section.
