Samsung Scanner in Your Network Despite Firewall With Manual Setup

​To manually detect a Samsung network scanner with sane, you can try this method:

echo 'tcp scx' | sudo tee -a /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf

Replace "scx" with ​the IP address or resolvable hostname of your scanner. Try to ping the host, e.g. "ping scx" before you enter it here.

This assumes using the drivers from For some services, you may have to restart the service or your computer. It fixed using the scanner with an active firewall for me.
