Scanning over network in Fedora 11

I want to setup network scanning in Fedora, but no success.
I try to describe my setup in a quite detailed manner:

1. My scanner works fine locally:

$ scanimage -L
device `snapscan:libusb:004:003' is a AGFA SNAPSCAN 1212U_2 flatbed scanner

2. I have the  configured like this in /etc/sane.d/saned.conf:


(my local network is 192.168.2.XXX)

3. In /etc/services ther are the proper ports listed:

sane-port       6566/tcp                # SANE Control Port
sane-port       6566/udp                # SANE Control Port

4. saned is started from xinetd, configured like this:

# /etc/xinetd.d/sane
# Sane network access
service sane-port
    disable    = no
    socket_type     = stream
    protocol        = tcp
    wait            = no
    user            = kp
   server          = /usr/sbin/saned

(kp is my user)

5. Now I try to check if saned is running properly:

$ telnet localhost 6566
gives this output:

Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

6. But whenever I telnet to saned remotely, even from this very machine using it's ip address, I get:

Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

7. So I ran sane in debug mode (saned -d128, with the daemon stopped), and I got the following error messages from step 6:

[saned] saned (AF-indep+IPv6) from sane-backends 1.0.19 ready
[saned] check_host: access by remote host:
[saned] check_host: remote host is not IN_LOOPBACK nor IN6_LOOPBACK
[saned] check_host: local hostname: kellercomputer.kralenriede.de
[saned] check_host: getaddrinfo failed: No address associated with hostname
[saned] init: access by host denied
[saned] quit: exiting

8. BTW, the firewall is turned off.

Now, what may have gone wrong?

Any help would be greately appreciated,
