Thats a long list, but contains no reference to the scanners ip when 
xsane isn't running.

I did get it to work with xsane over the local network, but the command 
response is at least an additional 5 seconds over the speed of the USB2 
access.  If I hook up a usb cable, and choose that as the access path, 
load a sheet in the adf, and click on preview, it will start that scan 
in about 2 seconds.

If I choose the ethernet access, the lag is closer to 8 seconds.
the data retrieval phase however is nominally equal in time.

To get a gigabit connection, I have ordered a gigabit 8 port switch to 
replace my 100Mbit switch.  Amazon says I'll have it tomorrow, late.
Thank you Yury
