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.

There is a more complex way that requires using xinetd, which we'll get to next time. We'll also look at using HP's Jet Direct for direct network printing.
