    You can to do it with the help of VNC. Install VNC on the machine that has the scanner attached and then access that machine remotely.

    One way to share your scanner is by setting up the computer with just a connection to a specific shared folder and map that as the default folder for storing scanned images.Once you have everything working, you can lock down the computer in order to limit other usage of it. Using a shared folder for storing the scanned images will also limit inappropriate use of the scanner.

    You can use Remote Scan software, which works only through internet.
