    Sorry but you are wrong you can get hp scanners that do this, but they uses peer to peer networking. They are not very good, I had the unlucky task of setting up 12 pcs to share 3 of these scanners.

    Yes, indeed this can be done. The scanner should come with software to allow this. My UMAX 2200SU (POS) has this capability, and it works ok, but never bothered with it.
