Hi,

I am trying to buy * Brother MFC-5440CN printer for my home office and I
was reading several reviews. but can't find specific to Fedora in
general FC3 and FC5 in particular.

It would help me if some one who tried this model under FC3 or FC5 to
share their success steps or frailer in making the printer a Networked
printer.

Both my machines   (FC3 and FC5) are uptodated
thanks

I have a Brother MFC-8840DN that I've used as a networked priter with FC3
& FC5.  No problems at all.

did you follow the same steps as it is on the brothers Linux page?

from what I understood, I should be able to
1)rpm -ivh MFC5440CNlpr-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm
2)rpm -ivh cupswrapperMFC5440CN-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm

and the use the SYSTEM-->Administration-->Printing and add new printer as JetDirect and use the default Port (9100) and use the Printers IP.

or is you use a different method?

THanks
