appologies for the double post, I've been having problems with my email.

The problem has taken a new twist (as you can see from the attached).  I'm
sure the configuration files are setup correctly as follows;

net, pnm are uncommented

localhost is uncommented and /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf are setup

scanner Mustek-1200CP parport0 cis1200

I set the following SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK_PP=255 and saned -d128 and tried
running scanimage -d net:localhost:mustek_pp:Mustek-1200CP but this
failed, as did scanimage -d mustek_pp:Mustek-1200CP

If you have any thoughts please let me know.
