Brother HL5050 Driver. This is the remote printer setup utility for programming the on-board memory of a Brother HL1050/1250/1450/5050 & pretty well most other Brothers in this series.

It's a DOS based product contained on most of the Brother installation disks. It will also not work under any NTFS operating system ie Windows XP, Windows 2000 etc (unless they were configured FAT32) so unless you're using Windows ME or less, you will probably need to create a DOS boot disk and boot your PC in DOS.

This was how we did this:

1. Install the package (RPCSETUP.EXE)

2. make a DOS boot disk (ie Right Click Floppy Disk Drive & create MS-DOS startup disk)

3. Copy the contents of C:\RPCX to the floppy.

4. Reboot using your DOS disk

5. Now run RPCX and follow the on-screen instructions.

Of course all the hassle would be avoided if Brother could be bothered to release software that worked under any version newer than Windows ME!!

If you have a Win98 machine kicking around, just install the remote console as above and then run C:\RPCX\RPCX.exe even if once configured you move the printer to a newer machine.
