The fiery 3850PCL is a driver manufactured for use in the Fiery 3850C PCLrev.1.0.1 printer manufactured by Ricoh Oficio. The printer supported by this driver has five interfaces namely: RJ-45, parallel, Ethernet 100Base-T, Ethernet 10Base-T and Bi-directional Parallel. The device doubles as a copier and a printer, which can operate on LPD, LPR and Q-server modes. It uses both UDP and TCP protocols. The Fiery 3850C PCL printer has default resolutions set at 600 x 600 dpi. The maximum resolution for the printer however is 12000 x 1200 dpi. It can print in both postscripts III and PCL 5c languages at 28 pages per minute in color and 38 pages per minute in black-and-white. The printer can be used as a workgroup computer across a network. It is compatible with machines that are at least PIII with a 700 MHz processor and at least 128 Megabytes of random access memory.
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
After connecting the Fiery 3850C PCL printer on a network, it be haves like a postscript printer. The different protocols that support networking in this printer enable it to communicate the different protocols to run con-currently. For this to work however, the use should first connect the printer to a functioning network, then configure the network server and set up the device. This is however only possible if the user has installed the device driver, which communicates the printer capabilities to the host computer. After this, the user can then configure the printer to the networking environment. If additional user software is needed, the user should also install them. To print from the parallel port, the user has to enable that specific port, while connecting the printer to the internet requires one to use an RJ-45 connector connected to a UTP cable. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Fiery 3850C PCL errors before installing any driver updates.
