    First try to look only at the server: add localhost to saned.conf and
    net.conf. Try scanimage -L. You should get something like:

    device mustek:/dev/scanner' is a Mustek ScanExpress 12000SP Plus flatbed scanner
    device net:localhost:mustek:/dev/scanner' is a Mustek ScanExpress 12000SP Plus flatbed scanner

    (The net: is important is the important part).

    If this works, add the IP-address (or name) of your client to the
    saned.conf of your server (from your saned.conf it looks like you
    forgot to do this).

    Your client wasn't allowed to use saned. Maybe there are also problems
    with anme-resolution (the "(null)" looks suspicous).

    Add the name or IP address of your client here (just the name, no alias).
