LEAP 15 does not work similarily than earlier versions of SUSE. I have a net scanner, XP-700 Epson. I managed to get it printing today with no problem at all. Scanner on the other hand does not work via net interface.
With all the distro’s I have used so far I have never been able to get my scanner (Epson XP-530) working, till I found a program called Vuescan. (https://www.hamrick.com/)
It’s not free but for $79,95 you’ve got a lifetime updated program which just works. Mind the firewall ports which need to be opened to a) find the scanner and b) to scan. I just saw these are not mentioned on the website. I’m not at home till next week so I can’t tell you which ports these are at the moment, but one e-mail to Ed Hamrick and he will help you.
Actually I did all of these already. And then I suspected that my WLAN Extender is causing problems. Finally I found reason and fixed scanning…

Now up and running. Easy task …
By the way - Epson XP-700 is quite good combo machine but it really eats ink. I plan to change it to other model. to Which… I do not know. When printing rarely, you really pay a lot from your prints.
I don’t print a lot (at home at least) these days. I opted for a mono laser multi-function printer several years back and haven’t regretted the move at all. Much more reliable and cheaper to run with respect to consumables.
