[sane-devel] Device Selection

Having a problem with XSane -- it always chooses the wrong device.  It chooses the v4l built-in camera in my laptop, rather than the saned daemon's scanner, which is a Canon.

There doesn't seem to be any place in XSane to select device, and the documentation doesn't address this issue at all.  

In /etc/saned/dll.conf I've disabled all scanners except net and the Canons, and now XSane says there are no devices to choose from!  Why doesn't it look to the server on localhost:6566?  

Will it not work with saned?  I need it to, so I can scan remotely.
