I'd really like to set this up as a networked printer and scanner. The
networked printer bit works fine from either Linux or Windows being the
host / client but the scanner doesn't appear to work in Linux (I may not
have installed in correctly) and investigating setting up a networked
scanner in Windows lead me to corporate style licensed software. This
is just for a home environment with a couple of users (although would
probably be useful for larger enterprises too if it works!)
Oh, by the way, if I did find driver support for the scanner on Linux,
or it came available in the future, would the Windows host be able to
access the SANE scanner as a network scanner?
