Hello Luca,
can you ping the scanner from your "other" PC? If not you will have to find 
the reason for this. I would start with all devices in the same network and 
verify whether or not you can ping the scanner device. If not there is 
something utterly wrong with your network configuration.
Moreover: if your scanner should be promoted on a net that is not routed 
through the ethernet or wlan card you'll have difficulties to get things up 
and running.
