I am plan to install the workstation with Linux OS and 
install SANE on it.  This workstation with have a scanner
attach to it.

I will then scan an image from the workstation and direct it 
through the network with some SCANIMAGE's network option
to a remote Server that running SANE and put that scanned 
image under /tmp/  directory.

Is this possible?
