    Thanks. I just set the first machine up yesterday and am already fuzzy on details...

    Do you or anyone else know where to get BrotherComm? FileZilla works but leaves a lot to be desired UI wise.

    You guys are way ahead of me, that's why I was hoping for a video. Which ethernet port do you use? There's one on the lower left and one to the right that look like possibilities.
