I am trying to connect the scanner of a new MF8580 to my iMAC

I am trying to connect the scanner of a new MF8580 to my iMac. The printer works fine and the iMac does recognize the scanner, but they fail to connect. I downloaded the MF Toolbox from the Canon site, but it does not work because the scanner and computer do not connect. When I try to scan, the message on the display is also that I should connect the scanner to the computer. But how?

 

I hope someone can help to resolve this issue!
