I was wondering if you can share a scanner over a network so that all computer can scan on over the network

Is it possible?

You might be able to with something high end. But I know most of the cheap all in one HP and Cannon Scanner/Printers do not.

Some of the new, and expensive, scanners from HP will share across a network. However, unless the computers are very close, it seems not all that practical, you have to be there to put stuff in the scanner. :)

I have two computers next to each other with the scanner in-between.
It does not matter that much anyway

I'm almost sure that you'd never get a scanner working on a print spooler port. :D
