As an initial experiment you might try this (perl) driver 
http://www.jon.demon.co.uk/dell1600n-net-scan/ originally written as part of 
the research for the SANE dell1600n_net driver.  Other people subsequently 
submitted help/code supporting other similar protocols, including some Samsung 

Even if it does not work then have a look through captured network packet data 
of a scan looking for strings beginning "std-scan-" which would suggest a 
similar protocol.

If either of above the above show promise then you might use the source of 
both the perl driver above and the SANE dell1600n_net plugin as a starting
