Hi Steven,

thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, the current network setup  
works against a peer-to-peer communications scheme. Additionally, such  
a setup would require to configure all clients, making all remote  
scanners known at each client. With the intended setup, all scanners  
simply point to the central saned server and would retrieve a list of  
currently available servers.

It seems I'll have to look at the sources to find out if it's saned  
that is not propagating its net-based scanners, versus the client-side  
not taking such scanners into account.

With regards,
