Hi, no it's a Canon MP460 multifunction printer/scanner.

It must be that the device found on the client was the fingerprint reader on my HP Elitebook where I ran sane-find-scanner.  For some reason it is not referring to port 6566.

On the server where the scanner is connected the device shows in lsusb as:
 Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04a9:1716 Canon, Inc. MP460 Composite
... and sane-find-scanner:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1716 [MP460]) at libusb:001:006
