Such was offered with some of the HP scanners, but didn't find acceptance in the market since... installation was too hard for most and no one wanted to pay for support.
If this is a way, then it's called LINUX. You would install a linux box with the scanner attached, read about SANE on google.com and learn how to run the scanner via a command line or VNC connection.
If you wanted a networkable scanner, then you should buy one that has such a feature. Adding such later is... not a happy story.
Just got a HP scanjet 4670 (drivers/software/installation sucks, but that's another story) and would like to network it in my home network. There doesn't seem to be any way to share it, or am I missing something.
The scanner is hooked up to a winXPpro machine. The other computer on the network is also running winXPpro, and I'm using a linksys router. I'm runing this all as a workgroup and not a domain.
I'm not sure if there is a way utilizing the OS or is there a third-party software solution. thax for any input.
