Right.  I have that driver.  When installed (under gentoo) the line
is appended to /etc/sane.d/dll.conf

This talks about general connectivity and printing.  I can print fine
to the officejet using HPLIP.

This may be the trouble.  You are certainly correct that I am likely
in error messing with net since that is for a server.

I just read a few more docs (thanks for the reference) and they all
refer to a scanner that is attached (often via usb) to a host.
However, in my case the scanner *is* the host.  That is, the hp7310 is
a network device.  The hp7130 has a url on our lan (namely  I can ping that url, I can print to it (via cups), but
I guess my question is

"How do I tell the scan client that the scanner is a network device
with address"
