Question about Brother DCP-7065DN MFC / All-In-One Up to 26 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
I have a Brother DCP-7065DN multifunction printer/copier/scanner. I have this connected via ethernet to a router. I am trying to set it up so that I can scan directly from the Brother unit to my Synology DS412+ NAS unit. I previously has a different Brother model and this solution was offered (http://www.fixya.com/support/t15532099-configure_brother_8460n_scan_synology?mt_f=viewFull164) but when I log in to the web interface of my current Brother machine, there is no Scan to FTP/Network option listed. Has anyone had success setting this up? If so, any help would be really appreciated.
I don't believe the DCP-7065DN allows scan to FTP. Brother's models MFC-7460DN and MFC-7860DW do provide this function. Good luck and please share your solution should you find one.

My guess is a driver problem. I'm assuming you can print to it, so you know the USB connection is good. And you can make a copy (I assume), so you know the scanner mechanism and its connection with the rest of the machine works.
The scanner driver is separate from the printer driver. It's entirely possible to install and use the printer without having loaded the scanner driver. Best bet is to unplug the unit from your computer, then uninstall it completely from Windows. There may be an Uninstall program listed under Brother in your Start menu...All Programs... Or go to Start...Settings...Control Panel (or however your version of Windows get there) and open your Scanners and Cameras folder. If you find the Brother machine in there, Select it and click Remove. Do the same in the Printers folder.
Don't plug your machine back in until you have reinstalled the drivers. Go to www.brother-usa.com, and in the Service & Support box on the right, click Downloads. That will take you to a page where you'll select Multi-Function as your Product Group, then the model.
You'll get two lists of links. Forget Manuals, look at Drivers on the right.
Under Type of Software, click ALL. Select your OS.
Look for Setup.exe in the main directory, or you may need to browse folders labeled with different language abbreviations to find it.
Start the installation, and don't plug your USB cable in until the computer tells you to. it will install the printer first, then return to install the scanner. It may require you to restart Windows more than once. Sorry.
Once you've suffered through all that it should be fine.

i had the same issue - was previously able to scan to a number of different formats, then switched modems, providers and then only the scan to ftp option came up.
took me about an hour to figure out the solution, but now it works
for windows users: * go to your control panel * go to the scanners & cameras section * your printer/scanner should show up here * right click on it and select 'properties' * select the network settings tab and then -- enter in the correct ip address here OR -- specify your machine by name (enter in name here)
hope this helps!

Use SMTP relaying. Set up a computer with SMTP relaying. Go into the Remote Setup Program for your Brother MFC and select Setup Server. Use the IP address of that PC in the Server Settings and set Auth for SMTP to None. Worked great for me. This document can help you set it up on the relaying computer/server. http://www.lesolsoncompany.com/InstantKB20/Attachment17.aspx
