SOURCE: Brother MFC-8460N network printing, local scanning

Yes this is possible. Depending on the type of installation that has been done on the computer, you can even scan documents to your computer as a network scanner.

You can check and see if all the features have been installed on your computer. Click on start, all programs, and look for the folder called brother. If you can find brother you can look for the sub category for Conrtrol Center. From Control Center you can scan by clicking on one of the icons. Like file or image.

If none of this is installed, get your installation disk and install the software, you can do a network installation or a Local (USB) installation.

If you decide to do a Local installtion remember to only plug in the USB cable when promted to.

If you decide to do a network installation, the machine should already be installed on the network, which I assume it is since its being used as a network Printer.

Please let me know if any of this info was usefull, and if you require more info about this.

Problem installing HL-2280 DW for MAC OS X 10.7.5

Did you install the driver? Double click on the driver in your download list and follow the on-screen instructions.

After doing all that, you can install an automatic driver updater so that you won't have any driver related issues in the future. I can recommend RadarSYnc.

Won't scan


We need to first check the driver to make sure it is installed and working correctly. Please go to “start menuè control panelè scanners and cameras”.
(Note: For Vista users, you must select “classic view” in control panel to be able to see “scanners and cameras”)

You should now see all scanners currently installed.
If you do see your brother scanner, please right click the icon and select “properties”; here you can select “test scanner”.

If the test fails, select the “network settings” tab. Here you can have the driver set to locate the device by name or by IP address, please select IP address and make sure the IP address matches that of your brother machine.

To get the IP address on your brother, print out the network settings page; either with the “report” button on the printer or go “menuè print reports”

If the scanner does not appear in the list at all, you will need to reinstall the software. You can download the software using the below link.

If your scanner successfully completed the diagnostic test, we can move on to try using control center to scan.
To access Control Center, please go to “Start menuè All programsè brotherèControl Center”.

In Control center, please make sure the correct device is being selected in the ”model” drop down list.
