    Hey guys,

    I've just set up an old PPC mac mini as a basic server in my home (Basically at the moment it's just a printer server). I, however, also have a scanner that I would like to make network accessible.

    Now, I know it's possible to share a scanner over a network with image capture on OS X, but how can I make this scanner accessible in Windows? Does anyone know any software that I can install for this?

    Thanks a lot :)

    Since you have give neither the manufacturer nor the model of your scanner, then the answer would have to be "No."

    You would need to find some software that would serve as a SANE client on the Windows side. You might be able to find what you need on the SANE web page. I saw a couple of things that might work there, but have no experience with them. You will have to install the TWAIN-SANE framework on your mac. Of course this all makes the large assumption that your scanner is supported by the USB drivers for SANE.
