More Than HPLIP Service for Linux - page 4
The Device Manager does not include any nice easy way to configure network scanning, which is a shame
because it's a pain to set up manually. One way to run scans over the network is using good old X over
ssh. Just log into the PC that the scanner is connected to:
$ ssh -Y user@scannerpc
Then run the
hp-toolbox command and click the Scan button. Remember that you're running these
commands on the remote PC.
