Can I share an USB scanner

Hi Experts,

To my little home network, I have connected an USB scanner one of my W2K PC's.
Is it possible to share it over the net with an other W2k PC???

Thanx.

Scanners, unlike printers, cannot be shared using Win2k shares.  In order to share a scanner, you'll have to acquire additional software (or your scanner will have had to come with it).

If you happen to own a UMAX scanner, they have a fairly good description of how their software works at http://www.umax.co.uk/support/technotes/n005B.htm.

Otherwise, good place to start researching might be with the manufacturer of your printer, and of course, the net.

Hope that helps.

Sorry for not responding, but I was waiting for another answer. I know it is not possible (standard), but I have seen a package that can do such thing with a HP desk (somthing) printer,scanner,fax. but the softhare will not work for an Cannon scanner, so I was wondering is somone knows how to solve it. But seeing the time that the question was open I have to forget it.

Thanks

The only objection that I have to the refund is that sometimes "You can't do that." is the only answer.  That aside, I had actually forgotten I had answered this question, so I won't really miss the points that much.

Jzal,
You are correct that "can't be done" is a valid answer and you went above that with your explanation.

Force Accepted.
