Question Network Scanner issue with Ubuntu 16.04

I recently upgrade both my desktop and my server to Ubuntu 16.04 and now I unable to access my network scanner. It is an Epson USB scanner which works fine on the server, but I can no longer access it from the client PCs which worked fine in Ubuntu 15.04. I checked all the file settings on the server and did not see anything wrong. Nor do I find anything wrong on the client. Does anyone know anything that is different in 16.04 that would cause this behavior. I did an Internet search but did not see any solution.

Well, I was finally able to get it to work by using the following commands.

sudo systemctl start saned.socket

sudo systemctl enable saned.socket

and this German site that I translate into English via google translate was helpful.
