Step3: Check for a firewall setting on your computer

If a Firewall on your computer is active, it may be rejecting the necessary network connection needed for the network scanning software to operate properly. Disable the Firewall on your computer and try the network scanning again.

Temporarily change your firewall/security settings to allow network connection

Your computer’s firewall/security software may be preventing the network connection from being established. If you receive firewall-related notifications, we recommend temporarily changing the security settings on your computer to establish the connection.

Temporarily change your firewall or security settings to allow network connection


  • Before making changes to your firewall, please ensure that they are appropriate for your network. Brother cannot be held responsible for any negative consequences that may result from disabling the firewall.
  • When finished, make sure to turn the firewall on again.

If the feature works properly after disabling the Firewall, this means the Firewall on your computer is rejecting the necessary network connection. In this case, Brother recommends you either disable the Firewall on your computer whenever you need to network scan using the scan key or leave the Firewall enabled and adjust the Firewall settings.

If the firewall blocks network communication, we recommend adding the following Internal/External ports in your firewall:

  • UDP: 54925
  • UDP: 137
  • UDP: 161
