[sane-devel] Problem with network scanning Linux/win98
Sun, 05 May 2002 12:50:38 +0200
Hay, I have a problem accessing my scanner using my LAN. I'm a newbee to
Linux so I'm not suprised if I have forgot something or made an error in
one of the config files.
I us a Microtek E3 SCSI scanner on a adaptec card. My server also have an
onbord scsi card that I use for my discs, CD-rom and tapestreamer.
I can access my scanner using when sitting on then Linux-box. But not using
LAN for my windows computer.
I use RedHat 7.2 linux
I have how ever one problem using the linux box. If I restart it I have to
type "modprobe aha152x aha152x=0x340,9" before it works. What shoud I do to
start this automaticly?
Over to my main problem, accessing the scanner from win98
I have tried reading different help files and belive I'v edited the files
that I should.
# The contents of the saned.conf file is a list of host
# names that are permitted by saned to use local SANE
# devices in a networked configuration. The hostname
# matching is NO LONGER case-sensitive.
** barcelona is my server
** radich is my win98 computer
# Added by Edvard 30/04/02
sane 6566/tcp # SANE network scanner daemon
port = 6566
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = saned
group = saned
server = /usr/sbin/saned
protocol = tcp
In one helpfile I read that trying to us "telnet localhost 6566" could tell
me if things worked. Trying this both form my win98 and linux computer I
get the same resolt:
[root@barcelona etc]# telnet barcelona 6566
Connected to barcelona.
Escape character is '^]'.
And then it just hangs - nothing happens.
Trying scanimage -L from my linux box give this result:
[root@barcelona etc]# scanimage -L
device `microtek:/dev/sge' is a Microtek ScanMaker E3 flatbed scanner
device `microtek:/dev/sg4' is a Microtek ScanMaker E3 flatbed scanner
Anyone that can help?
