    Highly likely that it is possible, though I'm not sure of the utility of such a thing, since a scanner tends to require physical proximity.

    It's not as simple as sharing a printer thanks to TWAIN. You need a 3rd party application such as this one: http://www.remote-scan.com/.

    I know you can. I don't know how to set it up.

    At my school, we had one computer set up as a "scanning station." You'd use that computer and then save everything to your folder on the server, then go back to your own computer, access your files, and modify them accordingly.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
