I've been using the scanner with Windows to initiate a scan from the machine, but now I really want to get this working in Ubuntu.
It seems to me that the instructions above are just for starting a scan from the PC Ubuntu, not from the scanner (except in this example, it's a copier).
2 things not clear to me though:
there is mention of this *Network* ScanGear tool. My scanner software is just plain "Scangear", so maybe there is another piece of software involved that I haven't discovered anywhere (yet).
Secondly, I don't know if the two devices are on the same subnet - and I don't know how to find out. I believe my router assigns IPs dynamically, hence there wouldn't be any static IPs in my network...
