    Adding Flatbed Scanner to network


    Can anyone tell me how to add a flatbed scanner to my network using LPT1 on win XP Pro, have looked everywhere to try and share the scanner.

    I thought it might be as easy as sharing a printer, how wrong i was. 8(

    Can anybody shed some light on this matter.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure you can't share a scanner with other computers on a network.
