I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on an old computer I want to use as a file and printer server in a small office. I have samba sharing set up for file sharing and I've been able to get all the computers to print via CUPS. I am now trying to get the scanner to work.
On the Ubuntu server I can scan an image using Simple Scan or xsane. I used this tutorial to set up saned and I can confirm that the saned process is running. I then downloaded and installed the TWAIN SANE Interface for MacOS X binaries from http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/
I added the ip address of the ubuntu server to /usr/local/etc/sane.d/net.conf but when I open image capture on my mac I don't see any devices.
scanimage -L on the Ubuntu machine and I get
device `pixma:04A91737_32E09E' is a CANON Canon PIXMA MX330 multi-function peripheral device `net:127.0.0.1:pixma:04A91737' is a CANON Canon PIXMA MX330 multi-function peripheral device `net:localhost:pixma:04A91737' is a CANON Canon PIXMA MX330 multi-function peripheral
when I use xsane the pixma:04A91737_32E09E device scans properly the other two give me the error
Failed to open device 'net:127.0.0.1:pixma:04A91737:Access to resource has been denied.
I think this has something to do with configuring the sane pixma backend but I'm confused about the BJNP proticol.
Can anyone help me out with getting the scanner to work over the network?
