Dell 1600n network scanner driver

This is a driver for network scanning using a Dell 1600n Printer/Scanner/Fax/Copier. It is implemented as a Perl script. In principle, this means that it should be cross-platform. It has been tested under Linux (Debian and Gentoo) and Windows (NT4 with Cygwin) on Intel. Supported formats are TIFF and JPEG. With an external program (e.g. ImageMagick convert), PDF is supported.

            Would you mind posting some usage instructions for someone that is new to a mac? I don't understand how to make this work. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

            This is a great utility! Thank you for your effort and time dedicated to tcpdumping/hacking this VERY helpful utility into place. Even the Dell support guys are impressed. I have been buying more Dell 1600n printers because of you Jon (and this utility).
