Before printing

Table of contents


Before attempting any printing operation, confirm the following:

  • Make sure you have installed MFL-Pro Suite (the Brother software).

  • For USB or network cable users: Make sure the interface cable is physically secure.


Simultaneous printing, scanning and faxing


Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory or while scanning a document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during printing from your computer. However, when the machine is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the printing operation, and then continues printing when copying or fax receiving has finished.


Firewall (Windows)

If your computer is protected by a firewall and you are unable to network print, network scan, or PC-FAX, you may need to configure the firewall settings. If you are using the Windows Firewall and you installed MFL-Pro Suite from the CD-ROM, the necessary firewall settings have already been set. If you are using any other personal firewall software, see the User's Guide for your software or contact the software manufacturer.
