Hello Alesh,

thanks for your repfy.

I have installed the latest iscan version and the network-nt plugin (taken  
 from the GT-20000 driver download page) in compliance with the  
instructions of Olaf made in his release email to this list (on the 64 bit  
machines of course with the 64 bit versions).
On this occasion a minor thing, I noted that the 64 bit  
iscan-network-nt.rpm doesn't install properly (at least on Opensuse 11.1)  
- there has a link to be set manually from /usr/lib/iscan/network to  

The log files say there is no network scanner recognized. On one machine a  
"SANE_DEBUG_EPKOWA=HEX iscan 2> log" only produced an empty file (haven't  
found the reason for it till now).

And in the epkowa.desc coming with iscan 2.18.0 there is a line with the  
GT-2500 saying: "network interface not supported<br>overseas version of  
the ES-H300" - Maybe the GT-2500 really isn't supported.

Anyway - flatbed scanning works fine via network. And on the machine the  
GT-2500 is connected to directly it works fully featured ADF simplex and  
duplex. So it's not a dramatic fault.
