C256i scanning from computer

[ Edited ]

Where can I find Twain drivers for this printer. I downloaded Color Network ScanGear 2 Tool, but I get a message "Could not connect to the selecteed scanner" when I press "test connection". There is no problem with finding it - the tool finds all Canon devices in my network and the message is the same after trying to connect to them

I use Windows 10.

Printing works fine. I just can't use apps that require scanner, like winscan2pdf and different ones that use direct scanning to them. The case seems to be like with all multifunction devices, that you need additional scanner drivers, but I can't seem to find any. Maybe there are different ones for some other scanner that work with it ?
