The EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced printer belongs to the AcuLaser printer family marketed by Seiko Epson mostly for the budget conscious enterprise. The installation of the printer itself requires the presence of its software driver. This driver is used to support among others its built-in NIC (Network Interface Card) that allows it to connect to any network environment without a host computer system. When used within the computer networking scenario, the software driver for the EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced is responsible for supporting the various network protocols used by the different computer system platforms. Among the supported network transport protocols include AppleTalk, IPP, LPR, NetBEUI, SNMP, NetBIOS, SMB, and NDS to name a few. What this means is that the EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced has the inherent capability of acquiring its own network (IP) address to function as a separate entity within the network environment.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Another solution that is delivered by the software driver of the EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced printer is that it allows the simultaneous execution of the different network transport protocols being supported. This is very beneficial when taken in the context of a network environment that has multiple workstations using different operating system platforms. Essentially, the network protocols used differ from one operating system to another. The printer driver delivers the functionality of allowing the EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced to distinguish what network protocol is being used by the network client issuing a print job request. The network protocol is the foundation for the communication of all devices connected under a single network configuration. The support for these various types of network protocols provided by the software driver allows the EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced to enable printer sharing features for all connected computer systems. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and EPSON AL-C2000 Advanced errors before installing any driver updates.
