Try to explain this as best I can.

SCENARIO

  • Have 100 Brother MFC-J6720DW printers for temporary compounds
  • This is a Joint venture project, 7 companies involved
  • We do not have admin on partner machines but can probably get printers added through JV partners printer list
  • Limited adding printer drivers
  • Pure cloud solution, no on-prem or hybrid solution
  • Wireless connection only, up to 20 people connecting to the printers
  • SMTP on printer admin page added and tested with test email fine

Whats needed
  • Need to add scan-to -email functionality, have managed this through USB but needs to be
  • Wireless
.
  • Need to add an address list in the admin

Is there a way of setting this up through a cloud solution where users can scan directly to their own email address.

I have looked at a load of links but none seem to explain what I am trying to do.

Many thanks

John

You will need to configure LDAP on your devices to accomplish this.

Brother have a rather confusing on-line manual for their network setup. The following page shows how to set up the email address book:

You can work your way through the rest of that manual, but as I said, it is confusing. Unfortunately, I could not find a download for it.
