I have been given a Vista S6E scanner unfortunately without a cable or any
manuals.

It was previously connected to a Mac and i have the software but I would
like to use it on my Linux box. I believe this model is supported by the
SANE package so should be OK.

I obviously need a suitable cable and it would be useful to have some
documentation.

1. Can anyone advise what cable is required?
2. Where can I download a manual?

Web site for the Vista S6E. Specs, manual, and software for Windows and Mac.
No Linux.

The SCSI-2 connector is 25 pins.

For SCSI you will need a matching Interface card in your computer. Adaptec
makes many cards you can get for cheap on Ebay.

This is the cable I use on my SCSI-2 AcerScan 620ST scanner. It is a 6 foot,
25 pin Male to Male.
Pro Series IEEE 1284 Parallel Switchbox Cable - 1.8m
Part # F2A047b06

Just hope that SANE supports it!
