Anyone know why, technically, a scanner cannot share across networks?
There are plenty of answers as to how a person can overcome not being able to scan over a network (hardware and software solutions), but I would like to <i>why</i> I cannot share a scanner over a LAN or IP network in the first place? I need the technical reasons or issues (EG: bandwidth, ports, packets, etc..). I have a combo device for which I can I share a printer features, but not the scanner features. Why?
