A program called Ultra@VNC (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4143.html). It causes your PC to remotely operate the other PC as though you were in front of it.

thats how im doing it at the mo...
RAS in... scan the image save it over the network to the HousePuter...

But I would like to Remotely Access the scanner with the software installed locally...

You can get a USB hub that assigns IP addresses to each device...
but i want a software version of this...
