    Most scanners are NOT networkable. Sharing the scanner will not work unless it is. If it is, then the scanner software will handle it.

    There are a few HP All-in-ones that are Ethernet compatible so you could place one on your network directly and share it. Look at the PSC 5180 or 6180.

    We use RemoteScan (RemoteScan® - Use Scanners with Terminal Server and Citrix® ) which is the standard software solution for sharing any kind of document, card or multifunction scanner with other PCs on any kind of network. It has been around for quite a few years, and a search in Google for remotescan turns up over 30,000 links and reviews.

    They also have a RemoteScan for Terminal services and RemoteScan for Citrix version, which lets people use scanners with any kind of hosted application.

    Dear Ssaroff,

    In Google search I can download only RemoteScanner client software.
    How can I get RemoteScanner Sever Software?

    Please give me the link or attach RemoteScanner server for me.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,

    Best Regards,

    You definitely can share your scanner on a network using RemoteTwain ( http://www.scanworkssoftware.com/remotetwain.aspx ). RemoteTwain is a TWAIN driver so you still can use your favorite scan application and scan from scanner remotely. Application will work as if this scanner would be attached to your computer.
