Hi all, I have my sysyem networked and have full access to other printers and files etc. What I would like to do is connect to the scanner on another pc. Is this possible does anyone know? . PC's involved are XP's
Thanks

To the best of my knowledge it's not possible to network normal scanners - the drivers just aren't written this way.

First off, ask yourself if it is really worth while networking the scanner.... bearing in mind that you will have to be at the scanner to be able to scan any documents.....

It would probably be better to set the folder that the scanned documents are stored in to be shared.
