Puppy users who own printers are familiar with letting CUPS share the device across their network. But the SANE scanning system also has that ability.

Install the PET below on both the server (the machine with the scanner) and the client. On the server machine, install the scanner driver package as usual. The client machine does not need it.

Look for Scanner Share in the Graphic menu and run it on the server. Use the "Server" section. The server keeps its network configuration in the file /etc/sane.d/saned.conf.

Repeat on the client, using the "Client" section. The client uses the configuration file /etc/sane.d/net.conf. Also check in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf that the "net" line is enabled.

Once the system is running, the client can scan with Xsane or Peasyscan as if the unit was connected directly to their machine.

These shared scanners can also be accessed by Windows clients. Read here.

To auto-start your scanner server, open the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add the line: saned -a
