I don't see the net backend in your scanimage output. Here's mine:

scanimage -L
device `avision:libusb:003:047' is a Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 8200 flatbed
device `net:localhost:avision:libusb:003:047' is a Hewlett-Packard ScanJet
8200 flatbed scanner

Make sure you have the networking set up correctly in saned.conf which
should just be an access list.

I have the following (names changed to protect the innocent):


You will want to have your local IP space and maybe your local domain name.

As is mentioned elsewhere, be very conscious of your sane network access
from the internet. If you have real routed IPs for your local network be
sure to ACL them off from the rest of the world in addition to using this
