I am trying to direct a scanner to scan directly to a shared folder on my home network. The scanner's web service asks for the network path to my shared folder, and only accepts UNC as input, i. e.
\\server\volume\path. My share is at
//home/<user>/Public on a particular computer on my network. I know the IP address and netbios name of the computer, and know the shared folder path on my Ubuntu machine, but don't know how to plug that in to come up with a valid UNC path to my shared folder.
UPDATE: This is not a duplicate of the question that asked how to navigate to a samba share via command line of a share created in Nautilus. Instead, I was asking how to direct a web server to my samba share when the web server uses a Windows (UNC) input mask. I already knew the path to my samba share from the terminal and from other Linux devices on the network. I didn't know how samba characterized this path to Windows machines or web servers that assume the Windows UNC file path naming conventions.
