I have a (non-SANE) driver for network scanning using Dell 1600n, 1815dn,
Ricoh FX200, Xerox Phaser 6110 and Samsung CLX-2160N MFP, see
I originally wrote the Dell 1600n part prior to writing a SANE backend (which
I then did: dell1600n_net) but the other bits got added on with the help of
other people and I didn't have the time to add to the SANE driver (or the
hardware with which to test).
I can confirm that the network scanning protocols for these machines are very
similar, although not identical.
Very happy to take a look at an ethereal capture from your model to see how it
