Adding scanner to network

I have a standalone scanner model Canon D1250 U2F installed to a computer on my home network through its only connection type being usb. I want to know if there is a way to it to my network like one would add a printer. When I go to control panel to view imaging devices installed there is no option to share the scanner with network.

Hi cyrax01,

does the scanner show up under printers and faxes by any chance?

Cheers!

What you need is an application like RemoteScan, available here:

http://www.remote-scan.com/remotescan-purchase.php

If this is for personal use only, you can purchase the personal version.  However, it only covers two stations for $24.  The "Business Use" product is $20 per computer.

There's no way to do this for free using anything "out of the box" with Windows.
