Are you guys aware of any web based scanning software? I prefer open source, if not commercial. You should be able to scan documents and upload directly onto a web server? perhaps based on ActiveX...

Anything running within the browser should never have permission to talk directly to the hardware like this (I guess ActiveX might make it possible since it throws the security model out of the window).
If the scanner is directly attached to the network or to a computer which supports SANE (e.g. the webserver) then it would be straightforward to code. Note this implies that you control the config of the device where the scanner is attached - but you really don't want to allow anyone to save their scans on your server.
