sane over network - can't find scanner

I am attempting to set up my scanner to work over the network.

the device is a HP5510 Multifunction Printer, I can print over the network without any problems and can scan when it is attached directly to my pc.

when the scanner is installed on the server I can ssh in and type scanimage -L and see the scanner.

my server ip is:
my ip is

in saned.conf on the server i have:

in net.conf on server and local i have:

in inetd.conf on the server i have:
sane stream tcp nowait saned.saned /usr/local/sbin/tcpd saned
and have tried:
sane stream tcp nowait saned.saned /usr/local/sbin/saned saned

in /etc/services.conf on server & local I have:
sane 6566/tcp saned # SANE network scanner daemon

if i tethereal my interfaces and type scanimage -L from my local machine i get:
zeus:/home/ben# tethereal -i eth1
Capturing on eth1

0.010743 -> TCP sane > 32867 [RST, ACK] Seq=1 Ack=13 Win=5840 Len=0

So the machines seem to be talking..

Have I missed something basic?

should this topic be in the software section?
