I have a SCX-3405W All-in-One printer that is connected by usb to a Linux Mint 19.2 Tina system. I can both print and scan from that system. I am trying to share it so that any system on my lan can print and scan. I am able to print from a Linux Mint laptop, but I am unable to scan unless I connect the usb cable to it. It appears from the following that it sees the 3405W as a scanner:

desktop:~# sane-find-scanner 

found USB scanner (vendor=0x7392 [Realtek], product=0x7811 [802.11n WLAN Adapter]) at libusb:003:002
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04e8 [Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.], product=0x344f [SCX-3400 Series]) at libusb:010:002

[I have cut out the commented lines.]

scanimage doesn't see it though:

desktop:~# scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

How should I proceed?
