Making the Brother Status Monitor software work with IPv6

The Brother Status Monitor software supplied with your machine is designed to work with the standard IPv4 protocol. If you are working in an IPv6 environment, you must enable the IPv6 setting in the Brother Status Monitor software.

To do that, do the following:

  1. Download the Brother IPv6 Settings (IPv6 setting tool).
  2. Install the Brother IPv6 Settings tool on your PC and start the tool from the "Start Menu".
  3. Check "Enable" to enable IPv6. Check on "Priority on IPv6 address". By enabling this option, the Status Monitor application, will start to use the IPv6 protocol.

Required Environment:
The IPv6 setting tool works on Windows XP running SP2 or later. The IPv6 protocol on your Windows XP SP2 PC must be activated.
