    Adding Brother MFC-8460N to network


    by roninv ·

    I have three of these multifunction Brother printers to add to a company network. Each has been plugged into a network cable at their desired locations and turned on. After logging in to a computer as the administrator, I log into Remote Desktop Connection (Windows 2000 Server). Adding these printers should be as easy as going in Control Panel – Printer and Faxes – Add. (1) Should I be inputting each printer’s IP address during installation? (2)We have three office locations. When naming the printer(s), should I not include the office location (domain) in the name, for example (Texas\printer1)? By doing so, that would allow a user to add that printer from her workstation, by simply clicking on that domain during the add printer process? Thanks for helping.
