[sane-devel] Using an Officejet 7310 with its ethernet connection?

According to the product specifications, this sounds like a REALLY nice
AIO!  However, it seems that it supports connecting to a USB port and 
that would probably be the best method.  The only other scanners that I could 
find that have had a workaround for scanning via an ethernet connection
to a SCSI generic device would be a section of the Sharp series.  An 
article explaining the process along with links (and likely source code)
can be found here:


I'm not sure if this will work as HP != Sharp and so the code is likely
to be different, but I would definately try hooking it up to the USB 
port first and get it working right there, and then trying the ethernet
out.  Good luck!
