You could setup saned on the server side through inetd.
Saned will use the backends that are installed on the server.
Reading man saned should tell you how to set it up.
You can run a frontend on windows, like Xsane for windows or SaneTwain to be
able to use it as a twain source.

I hope that answers your question a bit.
