Network image scanning system which transmits image information from a scanner over a network to a client computer

Image Number 15 for United States Patent #6425001.

A system and method for performing scanning operations using a scanner connected to a server computer and transmitting acquired images from the scanner server to a client computer. A scan-to-application process is utilized which allows control of the scanner or other image acquiring device which is connected to a scanner server using a virtual TWAIN driver which interfaces to an application program running in the client computer. Image files are also transmitted to a local file storage device of the client computer using a scan-to-file operation. A network protocol is used to implement both the scan-to-application and scan-to-file operation. Computer memories are utilized to store data structures or tables containing various information utilized during the file transfer procedures. Computer memories are also used to buffer and store the protocol packet headers and transmitted information.
