Just make localhost the only entry in your /etc/sane.d/saned.conf.

BTW, a Listen directive is normally used to restrict the *ports* on
which a daemon listens, not the hosts that are allowed to connect.  To
restrict the ports, use the data_portrange option.  For details on the
configuration see the saned manual page.

Hope this helps,
