Is it possible to connect a USB scanner (Fujitsu ScanSnap) to a Windows machine and through LogMeIn or similar remote desktop apps/services be able to send the scanner connection to the remote machine? In my case, this would be a Mac running DEVONthink Pro Office.

That way I may be able to remotely update/work my DEVONthink database with the scanner connected elsewhere.

lets clarify... you are sitting at your mac and you want to use your fujitsu scanner remotely? This scanner is not physically near you? – Logman Apr 17 '12 at 17:43
Logman - I will to be able to work on a Windows machine, which will have the USB Scanner connected, and have the scanner feed be sent through the remote session to the Mac. – orlando lopez Apr 18 '12 at 19:08

I will use dropbox and the OCR script from DEVONthink.
