Is my Brother machine compatible with third-party print servers?

Description of Solution 200000000959

Though the Brother machine may work with a third-party print server, Brother cannot guarantee the compatibility between our machine and another company's print server.  This includes print servers that are built into network routers.  For assistance configuring the third-party print server please contact your network administrator or the manufacturer of the print server.


If your Brother machine supports a network interface with a built-in print server, we recommend that you use the network connection with a router instead of using a third-party print server.  For more information refer to the solution for how to install the Brother machine using the network interface. 


To determine if your Brother machine supports a network connection, please view the specifications on the Brother Solutions center at
