Managing and Configuring Your Printer with BRAdmin Professional
BRAdmin Professional is the software that manages Brother network printers in the Windows environment.
This software allows configuring Brother printers connected to a network and viewing the status.
Features of BRAdmin Professional
Protocol support (Configuration and management)
BRAdmin Professional will run on a PC that has the IPX/SPX protocol or the TCP/IP protocol.
If you use the IPX/SPX protocol you do not require a Netware file server.
(However, if you want to configure a Brother print server for a Novell Network, then a Netware file server must be available.)
SNMP management (Management)
BRAdmin Professional can be used to monitor the status of other SNMP-compliant printers.
Create printer groups (Configuration and management)
Create groups of printers based on model name, network address etc.
Web page launch (Configuration and management)
Many printers have internal web servers, which enables administrators to view the configuration of a printer and print server using a web browser.
For those printers that have this capability, BRAdmin Professional can be used to launch a web browser and automatically display device information.
Automatic refresh (Management)
BRAdmin Professional can automatically refresh the device status. The user can configure the refresh interval.
Save device settings (Configuration)
Printer configuration details can be saved to file. They can then be transmitted to other devices, of the same model.
Easy print server updates (Configuration and management)
It is possible to upgrade Brother print servers from one application no matter which protocol (IPX/SPX or TCP/IP) you are using.
Log capability (Management)
Use the log capability to save printer information to a file.
This file can then be analysed to see how the Brother printers are being used in a network.
