What's the problem exactly? The network connection or the hardware
access to the scanner? If it's the network, killing saned on the
server may help. If it's hardware, you may need to addionally
unload/reload the USB or SCSI kernel modules (if you use Linux). But
you should know what you are doing in this case :-)

Anyway, that shouldn't happen. Can you give more details, e.g.
scanner, SANE version, operating syystems?
