[Gllug] Scanning to network attached scanner

Hi all,

I guess that I am going to show my ignorance here! I am looking for some 
assistance with a scanning problem. I hope that I am not asking the 
impossible but I am sure that somebody will know the answer to this! 
(Even if it is only, "Forget it!")

My setup comprises:-
Three networked machines running Ubuntu 10.10 desktop. Amongst other 
things connected to the network is a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo which, 
unsurprisingly is accessible across the network. I have an HP C7180 
all-in-one printer / scanner attached to the NAS via a USB connection.

The NAS works flawlessly as a print server from all machines.

I would like to scan across the network from one of the machines but 
cannot get the all-in-one recognised by the scanning software. My 
favoured choice of scanning software is Vuescan. If connected directly 
to the scanner, Vuescan works without issue.

Can anyone suggest how to access the scanner connected in the way I have 
outlined? I have Googled but to no avail.


Bob Giles.
