Greetings and salutations
I need some help setting up network scanning. (I am a bit clueless on Linux and have managed to fumble my way through with the help of Howto's etc.)
A desktop running Gutsy Gibon 7.10
A laptop running Vista (I know but it has to for work)
They are networked and printers and scanners are attached to the desktop
Printing (from both machines), networking and internet connection sharing also work fine (desktop connects to the internet).
I want to be able to scan directly to the laptop but I can't get it to work.
Scanners connected to desktop work perfectly with XSane.
I have installed Win32 version of XSane on laptop
It seems I have to get either inetd running or xinetd running to get saned running but all the advice I have found on the net so far just confuses me.
For example: How do I know if I should be using inetd or xinetd?
Network is working, scanners are working it would seem that network scanning shouldn't be that hard to get right.
I'd really appreciate some help.
