@ rcrsn51,

Okay, I may have gotten too cocky... I got the Printers HL-2170W and MFCJ4410DW to both work! As suggested, I made their IP's static!

Note PleasyPort LAN scanner does not always find their IP's...

Both printers are wireless and therefore so is the scanner. I have tried various combinations of - brsaneconfig4 -a name=Brother model=MFCJ4410DW 192.168.1.5 yields a Invalid IP_ address or NODENAME

I am lost as to where to go next - help???

ALSO how do you create a pet file for the various printers you have helps folk's with?

Code:
brsaneconfig4 -a name=Brother model=MFC-J4410DW ip=192.168.1.5

Notice the hyphen in the name. Also the "ip="

I have some scripts for making the PETS. Basically, they do a debbi install, then collect all the installed files into a PET.

Try setting PeasyPort's network device speed setting to Slow. That might work better.

@rcrsn51

Well, you have solved my senior moments yet one more time... No excuse for the "ip=" but the "-" in the model number would never have been caught by me!!!

Needless to say it now works. Xsane does not have a "wireless" tab (but you know that), however this does not seem to matter, all tabs work.

Peasyscan is very nice. You have a great help thread for this program,

Note: I lowered the network speed in Peasyport LAN scan and it has not missed a port since - my second laptop, or the two each ports for the printers. by the way what is 9100 for?

Again many thanks!

Earl

The 9100 is a port number. Most networked printers advertise their presence on the network using the HP Jet Direct protocol which works on port 9100.

Scan your HL-2170W for open ports. It may also show Port 139. If so, it also uses Windows NETBIOS file/print sharing.

192.168.1.30 : 80
192.168.1.30 : 515
192.168.1.30 : 631
192.168.1.30 : 9100

All from HL-2170W

Still on my learning curve!

Now to get the bride away from the HP laptop with Windows 8...

No Port 139. My old HL-2070N shows Port 139, but maybe Brother decided that Windows emulation was a bad idea.

Port 80 is the admin server running on the printer, so you can access it through your web browser.

Ports 515 and 631 are more traditional printer ports. In Puppy, you could manually set up this printer in CUPS using either the lpd:// or ipp:// protocols instead of socket://, which is using Port 9100.

Hello rcrsn51,

Thank You! I wish to report success on my install of model MFC-J450DW Brother Printer in Puppy Precise 5.7.1

I followed your install instructions from page 1 of this thread using the debbi PET. It complained like you said it would but everything works fine.
I tested the printer using a USB connection, then I uninstalled the printer in CUPS. Then connected the printer to my wireless router, went back to CUPS and added the wireless printer. Success!

Then I installed the scanner driver using debbi, it went well with no errors. I had one difference using hokal's instructions for setting up the wireless scanner. On mine the command started with brsaneconfig4, the other info from hokal was the same. Also if you just run brsaneconfig4 is shows the help screen.

So the MFC-J450DW command is >brsaneconfig4 -a name=Brother model=MFC-J450DW ip=192.168.x.x
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
hokal's original instructions are;
Remark for Brother Scanners in a Network:
execute a command like: >brsaneconfig2 -a name=scanner model=DCP-315CN ip=192.168.x.x
Start Sane, choose USB Port and Sane will find your network scanner!

Thanks, rcrsn51 for the instructions! I am ecstatic that I could follow them and print a document even though I adopted my Puppy June 14 2014.
