I was just looking at the documentation on SANE web-site about network 
and I noticed that /etc/services on my i386 does not include line like

sane-port          6566/tcp      # SANE network scanner daemon

which is used by saned (Sane Network Daemon to enable scanning over the 
The /etc/inetd.conf file is also missing line (of course should be 
commented by default)

sane-port  stream  tcp  nowait  saned.saned  /usr/local/sbin/saned saned

The handbook is  also  mute  about  the  scanning over the network.

Is anybody using scanners on the network on FreeBSD? Handbook article 
should also be appended.
I might try to play with it and see how it goes. I could contribute the 
documentation if the community has interest in it.
