Hi Martin
If the scanner does not work on a USB port it is quite unlikely to work
over the network: the bjnp network code just carries the USB exchange
over IP.
Anyhow, you can find the name with scanimage -L (but make sure that port
8612 is not blocked by a firewall (see the man-page for sane-pixma in
the latest sources from GIT. you need to enable port 8612 for both
incoming and outgoing traffic.
