Which USB scanner (make and model)? Some scanners come with sharing software, UMAX, for example. Larry

I know of no practical way of doing it with that scanner. However, a person has to be at the scanner to put whatever it is to be scanned in the scanner, right? Why not just scan it to a file on the computer connected to the scanner and then copy it over the network from that computer to the one you want it on? That may be somewhat inconvenient/annoying for the person using the first computer, but if you are not scanning all day, it is probably satisfactory. If you are scanning all day, suggest moving the scanner or buying another one. Perhaps, someone else has a better answer??? Larry
