The RAMBo driver needs to be manually installed on any Windows computer used to run/communicate with the printer. For software, please see Repetier-Host - Installing and Setup (Windows).
MAC: If you have a Mac, it will automatically find and install the driver. If you use Repetier-Host as your printer control software, you will need to go to the printer settings and set the "Baud Rate" to "250,000" in order to communicate with the printer.
