Hi All,

Okay, now this is "scary".

Both xsane and Simple Scan work locally.

I can not get saned to work, UNLESS, I edit /etc/group
and add the following to root


Without it, I get

$ xsane net:localhost:epkowa:interpreter:001:007
Access to resource has been denied

Now what am I doing wrong?  Must saned have root privileges?

Many thanks,
