Thanks for the reply Jon.
I tried the dell_scan perl script for my requirement(RICOH's MFP). I
just changed port number in the script and tried "--find" option. It did
not work. Guess I need a bit more of reading.
  Is there a is generic driver for MFP's?

I am in the process of adding network scanning support for the Dell
1600n MFP and Alessandro Zummo is working on one of the Epson MFP
models.  As far as I know no other network scanners are currently
supported.  (I could be wrong.)

For my own part, with a new baby imminent I suspect that the
dell1600n_net_scan backend could be a little while coming but in the
unlikely event that that is the MFP you have, there is a standalone
network scanning driver at
