Configure and use the Scan to Network feature

The Scan to Network feature allows you to scan documents directly to a shared folder on a CIFS server located on your local network or the Internet. The Scan to Network feature supports Kerberos AND NTLMv2. The details required to use Scan to Network can be entered by using the Web Based Management to pre-configure and store the details in a Scan to Network profile.

To use web-based management, open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer) and enter in the IP address of the Brother machine from the Network Configuration List.
