Scanning over the network, or sharing a scanner on a network



I remember the question from long ago, we had just shared a printer across a windows network and…. wait for it…. “oh, well could I share my scanner too?” On windows the typical answer was NO, at least not unless there was a driver from the scanner manufacturer that supported it, but on linux the answer is an unqualified YES as long as the scanner is supported under linux (so many are..) Using SANE (which is the linux scanner driver backend) you can share out scanners across a network and tips.linux.com has an article on just that topic. I’ve set it up before on my network and it was relatively easy to do and VERY convenient. At that time, I don’t recall a good functional windows client for the SANE driver, but it may have matured a bit by now (last I looked into it was 3-4 years ago.)
