The solution to your problem is the SANE network daemon saned. You
can install saned who is running as root (yes, the man-page says, this
isn't recommended) and allow users to access to scanner over TCP.

Please see the man-pages saned, sane-net and sane-mustek_pp for hints
how to setup this. Information about user authentication with passwords
is provided in the man-pages saned and scanimage.
