Make networked scanners available to other Macs
Authored by: Jaharmi on Oct 16, '06 08:36:12AM

If the scanner has TWAIN compatible drivers on its Mac OS X host, you should be able to enable scanner sharing through Image Capture and then scan remotely on other Macs using Image Capture on each client.

I wish reviews of multi-function printers would include information on whether their scanner drivers work directly with Image Capture. If they do work on the host Mac, then you should be able to share that device over the network. However, this information is fairly hard to come by in reviews, and Apple hasn't exactly kept their Image Capture compatibility page up-to-date.
