    Red face using scanner device with PHP

    Hi everybody,

    I'm trying to use scanner device via PHP. I know PHP is a server-side language and a desktop language is more suitable way to do this but the customer insist on it and wants to send their images directly to server without saving scanned file with another software to someplace and then browse them with browse button. So anybody have a solution that can help me on that or it is completely impossible?

    Thanks everybody in advanced.

    PHP is server side, you need something client side that can send the data. Further more, browsers are not able to interact directly with the OS for security reasons (except for IE and activex controls).
