I have a Debian box running cups on which I share out my laser printer to all the other machines in my home network. I am in the market for an upgrade to a color laser multifunction (print/scan/fax) printer and I want to keep the same network setup.
I do not anticipate any issues sharing the printing function via cups, but how does scanning work? Can I scan into printer and somehow push the image to a machine? Or would I fire off the scan process from the client machine needing the scanned image?
