Re:Fine article - doesn't work yet

As the article says you also need to add the server name or ip in the file<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/etc/sane.d/net.conf ( on the client side).

Also, the article forgot one detail: the file<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/etc/sane.d/saned.conf must be edited on the server to allow the client IP.

For example, to allow all clients of my local network (192.168.1.*) I added the following line:

192.168.1.1/24

If that still does not work then start saned manually on the server side with debug enabled:


  saned -d

That should tell you if a connection attempt is made.
