Epson Scan 2 cannot connect to network scanner

Just upgraded to Fedora 36.
Downloaded and installed the Epson Scan 2 utility for Fedora.
The Epson Scan 2 application icon is shown in the main menu screen.
After starting it, selection of a scanner is asked.
I submit the address and in the device selection box the
Epson Network Scanner ( is shown.
When pressing the Next button, the search of scanner fails and the
“Unable to communicate with the scanner.
Check scanner is on and connected to the computer” message shows up.
