Probably not, scanners are not usually designed to be manipulated over a network.

I'd have to agree with Neil on this one -- I haven't seen any Scanner that could be shared across a network. However, I have limited experience with Scanners, so I could very well be wrong.

there are certain scanners that can share the scanning function over a network (i have a small samsung all-in-one here at work that does and a large savin copier that does) but any scanner that has this ability...comes with software specifically designed for this task...if your scanner didn't come with network scanning software...then she's gonna be a no-go (no-go means...if not impossible...VERY difficult and unreliable)

just as an adendum...if you set your scanners default "scan to" folder to a shared folder that all your computer's can access...then all you would have to do is scan everything to that folder..then retrieve them on the other computers
