My network connected scanner cannot be seen by OpenOffice or xsane

Applies To
HPLIP Version: 
All
Printer(s): 
Network connected printers with scan capability
Linux OS Distribution(s): 
All
Symptoms: 

OpenOffice or xsane cannot see my network connected scanner

Cause: 

CUPS queue not configured properly

Solution: 

For network scanning, the "hp:/net/..." URI must be configured in the CUPS queue for auto-discovery by OpenOffice and xsane. You can manually specify the URI with xsane using the following format:

xsane <"hpaio" device uri>

For example:

xsane hpaio:/net/PSC_750?ip=12.25.63.142

(Where the CUPS installed device URI is: hp:/net/PSC_750?ip=12.25.63.142, and the hp: was replaced with hpaio:)
