Share scanner device in Mac OS Leopard

Issue:
You want to share your scanner in Mac OS Leopard but can't find the option to.

Solution:
This is indeed a bit hidden, but just follow these steps and you'll be up and running in no time.

On the host computer:

  1. Open Image Capture
  2. In the menu, go "Devices / Browse Devices"
  3. In the lower right corner, click "Sharing".
  4. Click "Share my devices".
  5. Click "Ok" and note that a new column called "Shared" will appear in the list.
  6. Check the box for the device you want to share.

On the client computer:
  1. Open Image Capture
  2. In the menu, go "Devices / Browse Devices"
  3. Click the "Connected" checkbox next to the scanner
  4. You now have a new device in your "Devices" menu.
