network printing all in one system. Users have a single account and administrators have the
same level of administration for all services.
Leverage your existing single sign-on infrastructure by allowing users to log in with
the same username and password used elsewhere on the network. No need to remember and
maintain multiple logins!
Microsoft Active Directory
Apple Open Directory
Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments
Optionally authenticate using swipe cards, proximity cards or ID numbers and optional PINs for extra security.
Authenticating with a username and password at a Brother MFC

If enabled, shared accounts can be accessed using a number of on-screen convenient methods:
