It is now possible to connect digitial scanners to Windows networks, and let anyone operate the scanner as if it were directly connected to their own computer.
There are several common situations where it useful to be able to
share a scanner on a network, such as:
1) A scanner is connected to a computer where someone is working who does not want to stop doing what they are doing every time someone else needs to use the scanner.
2) A scanner is connected to a computer on a home wireless network, and someone on a laptop wants to use the scanner but does not want to have to disconnect and then reconnect cables, etc.
3) A higher-end scanner is in a dust-free environment where a technician or other worker physically places the documents and then from their own computers operate the scanner without having to be anywhere near it.
4) At internet cafes and other public use locations where a scanner is located back behind a counter. The counter person can take documents from a customer and place them onto the scanner, then letting the customer operate the scanner from their own computer or work station. This keeps the counter person from having to know how to run any software at all.
