I didn't need to install the ppd file. After installing the LPR driver
and the CUPS wrapper script I was trying to configure the printer via
http://localhost:631 i.e. cups. I later realized that after installing
the CUPS installation, the CUPS daemon was not restarted. After
restarting it, Brother option was there on the printer driver page.

Now the printer is printing fine via the network.

Thanks for the help.
