Make networked scanners available to other Macs
Authored by: blgrace on Oct 17, '06 07:35:39AM

I've been able to get my Canoscan N650U to work across my LAN using Image Capture's device sharing - but it's a bit hit and miss.
The SANE backend and "SANE/TWAIN Interface" forgets my settings across reboot and I have to run sane-find-scanners and scanimage -L again to get them back despite having edited my config (Plustek).

Then I have to launch Image Capture and recheck the sharing preferences before I can get it to work again as these preferences don't stick across reboot either.

I have had no luck what-so-ever trying to run saned - Neither GraphicConverter or scanimage can see the shared device across the LAN on port 6566.
I don't have OS X's firewall running at all, but I've obviously missed something.

I assume the Image Capture Device sharing is handled by Bonjour - but I don't know which port(s) are used . . 5100 ?
