Thanks, but disabling only v4l still says 'no devices'.  

For some reason XSane does not seem to be looking to saned's port 6566. 

OK there's more to the story:  My saned server is running on Hex, where the scanner is.  I'm using a reverse SSH tunnel to serve 6566 on Droog.  So 6566 appears on Droog as localhost:6566 yet the server is actually on Hex.  For years I've remotely served services like this such as Squid, MythTV, Cups, etc, and they all (still) work.  It is a great secure method.  I am seeing localhost:6566 on Droog, just as I should, and there are no firewall errors.  But XSane is not using it.

Xsane runs fine on Hex, and when I stop saned it can no longer find any devices, so I know XSane is using saned on Hex.  For some reason though, XSane is not finding the server on Droog.

Is there anything I should know about XSane's use of saned?
