Utsushi does support the XP-530 which has the same USB product ID, so,
yes, the XP-630 is expected to work. That said, there is no evidence
that Utsushi works on FreeBSD. I have been trying to help someone who
at least managed to get it to compile but the (USB?) device detection
still needs work, AFAIR.

The epson2 backend should in principle be able to support the XP-630, at
least to some extent. If you add
usb 0x04b8 0x110c
to the epson2.conf file, it should also work over USB. This is normally
easier to debug.

Using the epson2 backend, you should be able to produce debugging output
with something like
SANE_DEBUG_EPSON2=128 scanimage > test.pnm 2> test.log
See the sane-epson2 manual page for details. Maybe the log gives us a

Image Scan! for Linux (iscan) does not support the XP-630 AFAIK. Image
Scan v3 (Utsushi's upstream) does but there are no packages for *BSD.

Hope this did ;-)
