HP PSC750 on network (print server) - scanning possible?
Posted on 2004-11-07
I recently purchased a Belkin 54G wireless USB print server to top off my home network. It workss well for printing from Win XP, ME and even MandrakeLinux 10.0 (the device is not supported for Linux but setup was actually EASIER than for Windows!)
I knew on buying the server that it did not support multifunction tasks (eg. scanning), and nor is the PSC 750 specified for use as a network printer.
However, 'never say never,' so I'm curious to know if some clever soul has found a way to enable scanning from the PSC750 (or similar) off a printserver. I don't know anything about the type of network processes involved, so for all I know it may be impossible or really easy.
Points set at 250 for an answer for either Windows or Linux, but will double if you can give me both!
EDIT: I forgot to say, 250 also given for an in-depth explanation of why (if) it is physically impossible.
