No, there's no way to share a scanner on a network.

Only some high cost copiers provide this feature, and they need a FTP access to share the result.

May be you could try a soft like PcAw to take control of the pc - scanner, and store shared document into a shared ressource.

Currently I am sharing an HP1175c (which is a scanner and printer) on the network. The scanner is available and the printer is available as a shared resource on the network. This was done through the use of an external HP jetdirect and is really no different than any other network printer. I can use the scanning software over the network. The problem lies in that to scan documents you really need to be at the scanner, otherwise it's just like a printer.

I also think that you may be able to share this device even if it is USB. HP software have some sharing utilities for their scanners!!
