  For each operating system an own scanner driver! -- no thanks!


Since we do not want to write a driver for each circulating operating system, we thought a lot about this problem. That's how InSANE arose.
stands for IntraNet Scanner Access Now Easy ;-)
A system, with which you can trigger the scanner without software installation from everywhere in your network.
Simply over the everywhere existing Browser.

You may ask yourself how this can work without a driver setup.
Quite simply in principle: The scanner is connected to the linux-server. On this server is something similar to a webserver running, which provides the user interface. This interface sends its commands to the scanner-driver. The scanned data is than send to the server again. And the server provides the download of the data via webbrowser.


  How does it work?

I think the best way to tell you how it works is an example of a workflow.

  User actions What happens on the Server
1. Insert the pages you want to scan into the scanner.
Or call someone to do so if the scanner is out of reach.
2. Open your Browser. Open the InSANE startpage on the server. Apache is displaying the requested page
3. Select the right scanner (if there is more than one attached to the server)  
4. Choose the resolution, colors, duplex, etc
and click "Start Scan"
The InSANE cgi-script is parsing the given parameters to scanDoX.
scanDoX starts scanning.
InSANE fetches up the scanned images and displayes them in the Browser.
5. Click on the "download page" or "download all" button InSANE converts the scanned page to the imange format requested in the browser
