@harvey my router is the problem, mass storage and printers are supported, but no scanner or fax :(

thank you for your help and patience :)

Interesting. I found the link wile browsing the online manual for your DCP-L2510D. So "http://machine's IP address" does not display a web Interface?

brikler commented on 2024-02-11 17:28 (UTC)

i haven't, but if, it wouldn't help, because Related Models:DCP‑L2530DW / DCP‑L2537DW / DCP‑L2550DN / MFC‑L2710DN / MFC‑L2710DW / MFC‑L2730DW / MFC‑L2750DW, and i use a `DCP-L2510D" :(

Please don't tell me you haven't read the manual for your hardware. See

a web interface for the scanner? how can i use it? btw, i tried it with the latest ubuntu in a livesystem, and the result was: scanimage: open of device brother4:net1;dev0 failed: Invalid argument ;)

All of our Brother scanner/printers have a web-Interface to set such things up. I'm out of ideas now. Network scans are working on our hardware is all I can say. Maybe someone else has a hint.

Okay, thank you. I am out of ideas except for one: IPv4 vs. IPv6 problem? What is the content of /opt/brother/scanner/brscan4/brsanenetdevice4.cfg? Did you see
