I am having a bit of a conceptual problem with the sane-net backend, and
the confusing error messages from sane are not helping.
On the remote machine with the scanner attached, I can run xscan and the
scanner (an HP) works fine.
I have set up saned.conf on the remote machine like so:
(I'll lock this down later, right now I just want to see it work once).
On the local machine, I have the net.conf file set up like this:
On the local machine, I try to connect to this remote machine like this:
I get a log entry on the remote side like this:
Sep 25 17:28:57 watchman saned: access by root@esoe068-206
Sep 25 17:29:03 watchman saned: exiting
The message is always "access by root@esoe068-206 accepted", regardless
of whether I log into the local machine as user root or not.
On the local side I get the error message:
"Failed to open device `net:watchman.domain.se:/dev/scanner`: Invalid
The remote side is configured to listen via inetd. The saned runs as
user "saned". The /dev/scanner link and the device /dev/sge are both
owned by "saned" and have the correct permissions.
Can anyone see where this has gone wrong?
Is there a net HOWTO anywhere describing how you can get net access to a
working state in a step by step fashion?
