Networking
What is Networking? A network is simply a method of allowing computers to communicate with one another. If you have two or more computers, a network can let them print to the same Brother Label Printer.

Different network types use different hardware, but they all have the same essential components:
  • More than one computer
  • Hardware (such as a router) and software (either built in to the operating system or as a separate
    application) to coordinate the exchange of information
  • A path for the information to follow from one computer to another
Benefit of having a network label printer model? You can connect Brother Label Printers to a network to allow for multiple users to access and print labels on the one machine. A network capable model also provides flexibility in being able to allow the machine to meet your growing businesses needs.

  • Using the optional PS-9000 USB print server connected directly to the Ethernet LAN.
