[sane-devel] Scan server = saned + xinetd?

I've had a scan server set up for a while which uses saned via xinetd.
 Is there a simpler way to set up a scan server with fewer permissions
to grant?  The configuration seems a lot more complex than my printer
server which has only cupsd.conf config on the server and client.conf
config on the client.

I noticed that /etc/sane.d/* has network ability, but that's for
communicating with a network scanner directly, right?

I tried to set up network scanning with epkowa and my Epson Artisan
710 but I couldn't get it to work, I think because I don't know which
port to define on the scanner's IP.  Does anyone have any suggestions
for that?
