Brother MFC-L8690CDW not showing in Sidebar or Network on Macbook Pro

Aug 11, 2023
I need help in setting up my Brother MFC-L8690CDW on macbook pro. I can't see the printer in Finder Sidebar menu or in networks, I have the printer set up in printer and scanners and as default and I could print to it by sending a command to print a document/pdf from print command. I can see the printer's webpage when I type in it's IP address( taken from app on iPhone ) in the address bar, but the printer is absent from Go - Connect to server etc.

I need to access printer so I can access memory stick attached to it and see files stored on them by scanning and saving on it. I could do all this on my Epson WF 7620DTWF and HP printer as well.

Please let me know if there is a workaround for this. I am using Macbook Pro with MacOS Ventura 13.4.1 (c) .

Thanks in advance
