BRAdmin Professional is Brother's administration utility for managing your network-ready Brother printers. BRAdmin Professional can also be used to view the status of other SNMP-compliant printers.
Easily configure and check the status of your network-enabled printers. BRAdmin Professional can also be used to view the status of other SNMP-compliant printers. A useful tool that was designed in order to ease the network printer administration by providing status monitoring and configuration capabilities.
BRAdmin Professional Features:
1. Protocol support:
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.)
2. SNMP management:
BRAdmin Professional can be used to monitor the status of other SNMP-compliant printers.
3. Create printer groups:
Create groups of printers based on model name, network address etc.
4. Web page launch:
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.
5. Automatic refresh:
BRAdmin Professional can automatically refresh the device status. The user can configure the refresh interval.
6. Save device settings:
Printer configuration details can be saved to file. They can then be transmitted to other devices, of the same model.
7. Easy print server updates:
It is possible to upgrade Brother print servers from one application no matter which protocol (IPX/SPX or TCP/IP) you are using. Use the log capability to save printer information to a specified HTML, CSV and TXT file. This file can then be analysed to see how the Brother printers are being used in a network.
* If you wish to use the TCP/IP protocol to manage the print server, you must ensure that the TCP/IP protocol is installed on your machine and bound to your network card.
* The IPX/SPX protocol requires the Microsoft client for Netware and the Microsoft IPX/SPX-compatible protocol.
* BRAdmin Professional does not support the Microsoft Service for Netware Directory Services.
