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.<

DriverGuide.com - Using DriverGuide's Installer
DriverGuide's installer software (Windows only) simplifies the driver installation process. It safely downloads and verifies your driver and then assists in the installation of it.
You may notice that the file size of the installer software is much smaller than the file size of your actual driver. The reason is that first the installer setup file is downloaded, and then the installer software does the work of fetching your driver from our fastest download server.
The installer setup file has been certified safe by leading-class virus and malware scanners.
Sometimes anti-virus software can report false positives. If this happens to you, we encourage you to submit the file you download to VirusTotal (a free, independent service which identifies malicious content) where you will see dozens of other anti-virus scanners report the file is perfectly safe.
The installer setup file may include a purely optional advertising offer which you are free to decline. We only work with trusted advertising partners.
Note: Windows only. Mobile, Mac OS and Linux users can choose other download options by deselecting the installer checkbox below the download button.
