AFAIK xsane only works with locally attached devices. I have an Epson network scanner and that uses a utility from Epson to scan on linux from the remote scanner.
XSane can indeed work over a network, at least with HP printers. See my post: viewtopic.php?f=54&t=75626&p=318241&hilit=xsane#p318241

Good news, I have a solution to my network scanner problem.
In Centos 8 several important modules are missing in sane. Installing them fixed the problem. In fact in Fedora 34 which I tried, the entire /etc/sane.d directory is missing. Here is what I did.
rpm -e brscan2
yum -y install sane* libusb libnsl
yum -y install brscan2*
brsaneconfig2 -a name=scanner model=MFC-8860DN ip=192.168.1.32
I found that on a fresh install, my scanner was not found by xsane because libusb was missing, so I added libusb to the yum install as well.
