    Hi
    I did a search of posts about using a usb scanner on a network and it seams it's impossible, you cannot share it like a printer because the sharing tab not there.

    Has anybody found a way to make this possible.

    I have three computers networked, the one the scanner is on is running XP pro and the others are running 2000 pro

    the scanner is a Ultima 2000 "basic but workes very good"

    see ya
    Mac;)

    Afaik it's impossible with only a few exceptions, usually expensive exceptions.
