Try to scan "over the locl net", i.e. using saned on the server
directly. Add "localhost" to "net.conf" on the server. "scanimage -L"
should show two devices now, the local scanner as above and the
scanner connected to the net similar to this:
device `hpoj:mlc:usb:OfficeJet_G85' is a Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet G85 multi-function peripheral
device `net:localhost:hpoj:mlc:usb:OfficeJet_G85' is a Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet G85 multi-function peripheral
If it doesn't show the second line, something is wrong with your saned
setup. Typical problems are that saned doesn't have access to your
scanner device. Checking if saned runs as goup "scanner" may help.

Look at log files.
On the client:
SANE_DEBUG_NET=255 scanimage -L
On the server, look at saned messages in syslog.
