Issue with Create File and File System connection

I am having trouble with a File System connection. The connection appears to connect successfully. The Windows credentials are entered as Domain\Username (which, searching the forum, appears to be a common issue). The Root Folder to the network share is entered as per the example, but to a folder inside the shared folder:

\\machinename\share\parentFolder\childFolder

However, the folder structure does not show when trying to pick a folder inside childFolder:

If a folder path is entered manually, like /temp, for example, the error returned when the Flow runs is:

{

  "status": 400,

  "message": "The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path '/temp' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: 9a8d3659-bd70-47e5-b397-9d9359d5d2d5",

  "error": {

    "message": "The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path '/temp' exists on your file system."

  },

  "source": "filesystem-eus2.azconn-eus2-01.p.azurewebsites.net"

The user account in the connection has permissions to childFolder, and to folders inside it - however, does not have permissions to  parentFolder - could that cause an issue like this? 

What else could we look at to troubleshoot?

NM - this was user error. We have two gateways set up and needed to be entering a different gateway for the given share (i.e., there was a test and production gateway, and a test and production share).
