I want to use SSL/TLS to encrypt communication between my Brother device and an LDAP or Active Directory server.

 

     

Use LDAPS Authentication to encrypt communication between your device and an LDAP or Active Directory server. Encryption helps prevent privacy violations, information leakage, and account hijacking.

To configure LDAPS Authentication, use the device's Web Based Management page.

NOTE:

  • To use SSL/TLS communication, install the Root Certificate from the CA on your computer.



  • Encrypt communication between the device and the address book stored in the LDAP server

    1. Start your web browser and make sure the device is powered on.

    2. Type "https://device's IP address" in your browser's address bar, for example: https://192.168.1.2.

    3. In the Login field, type the password, and then click Enter Key.

    4. HINT:

    5. The default login password to manage device settings is one of the following:
      - initpass
      - the password located on the back or bottom of the device and marked "Pwd".

    6. If you previously changed the password, type the updated password.

    7. Depending on the device you are using, you may not have to enter a password.

    1. Click the Address Book tab, and then click LDAP.
