Hi all,

I would like to access to my saned server through ssh tunnel via internet.

ssh user at home-ip -L 6566:*:6566

with upper command Xsane is able to detect my scanner through the ssh
tunnel, but is not able to scan (preview or final)
this is because saned or xsane use other randoms ports overs 1024 for data
transfert (like ftp I guess).

there is a way to configure saned or Xsane to use a specifig range port ?
I can't redirect thousands of ports with ssh tunnels (need to write them

.. I try to debug with saned -d255
and i see that data ports are random ..
