Firewall software / your computer security is always possible to prevent network connections from being made. If you receive a notification regarding a firewall, we recommend temporarily changing the security settings on your computer to continue making connections.

  • Before disabling it for a firewall, make sure the changes you want to make are appropriate for your network type.
  • Do not deactivate the firewall before it is finished, When finished, make sure to turn on the firewall again.
Next, re-search for the "Brother machine" on the network options.

If you see a Brother machine, the Firewall on your computer rejects the necessary network connection. In this case, you must disable Firewall on your computer every time you search for a Brother machine on the network.
If the feature works properly after you deactivate "Firewall", this means the Firewall on your computer refuses to need the network connection. We recommend that you deactivate "Firewal" on your computer whenever you need to select the feature or continue to leave "Firewall" to always be activated and adjust the "Firewall" settings.
If "Firewall" blocks your network communication, you should add the following "Internal and External port" code to your firewall:

  • UDP: 161
