Okay, assuming that you have nmap installed (you may need to run as root) do
Code:
nmap -sP 192.168.1.1-255

OK, does this help? (I'm afraid it means nothing to me)

Code:
~ $ nmap -sP 192.168.1.1-255

I see from your network report that your printer is using the DHCP-assigned address 192.168.1.108
Code:
brsaneconfig4 -a name=brother model=MFC-J430W ip=192.168.1.108
Although there is risk of the assigned IP address changing some time in the future, most routers will reserve it based on the MAC address of the printer.

You could also try the nodename reported I guess...
Code:
brsaneconfig4 -a name=brother model=MFC-J430W nodename=BRNA417314C54E3
Don't forget to remove any existing config first with
Code:
brsaneconfig4 -r brother

OK, I did this:
Code:
~ $ brsaneconfig4 -r brother
~ $ brsaneconfig4 -a name=brother model=MFC-J430W nodename=BRNA417314C54E3
It was accepted immediately, didn't throw up any error I could see.
I tried scanning, still not working. It must have seen the config, as the scanner is listed as "Brother brother".


Then I tried:
Code:
~ $ brsaneconfig4 -r brother
~ $ brsaneconfig4 -a name=brother model=MFC-J430W ip=192.168.1.108
Success!!! It scanned and let me save the doc, etc.
So for my Brother scanner it's down to specifying an ip address. As you say, I need to save the details, in case the ip address get changed by the router in the future.

Thanks for all the help ferrari, it's much appreciated. You definitely persisted with this one.

If you get the time let us know if the following also works (don't know if this was tried already)
Code:
brsaneconfig4 -r brother
Code:
brsaneconfig4 -a name=brother model=MFC-J430W nodename=dhcppc0

It's the least I can do. Unfortunately the above didn't work. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Okay, thanks. At least you have it working with the hard-coded IP address.
