Epson TM-U220B Printer Driver. The Epson TM-U220 printer, commonly referred to as the “U220”, is an impact printer used for kitchen or other remote printing needs. The 2 primary connection styles used for this type of printer are serial and Ethernet. Both connectivity methods are superior to Parallel or USB for long distance transmission of print data from a computer station to the printer. Before attempting to configure this printer, it is essential to determine the printer connection style.

IV. Why is the printer assigned to the ESDPRT00X Port?
This is the Epson proprietary Serial Com Port driver. If you move the printer to a standard COM port in the printer port settings, you will not be able to communicate with the printer. If the ESD port is not visible as a possible port assignment in the driver settings, your configuration has been damaged, and you must un-install and re-install the driver.
