    Question Scanning over lpd-network and a RX500 multifunction device

    Hello!
    I have made an EPSON RX500 multifunction device (printer/scanner) available over my router with the lpd protocol. Both PCs (ubuntu 10.04 laptop wireless, 8.10 desktop wired) connected to it can print, but not scan, since XSANE does not recognize the scanner over the network. It does hoverer both, scanning and printing, if connected with an USB cable.
    How can i configure xsane to recognize my RX500 over the network?

    cheers, ZP

    and heeeree's Johnny!

    any ideas on that matter?
    it works in Windows, thus the router is working properly and it must be an Linux configuration issue.

    Same here I connected my HP officejet 4620 on my router via USB... I can print but I can't scan (nor fax) while I can do everything if I connect PC with printer via USB
