How can I use for "Add File System connection" with On-Premises data gateway ?

I have an on premise gateway installed on a network server.  This gatway in working fine to refresh data in Power BI.  Now, I want to use this gateway to copy files from my Inbox to a specific folder on same network server using Flow.  I've tried the following configuration:

With this configuration, I get the following error message.

I am sure that it's not really a permission issue, as I can see all the pieces and I'm using my login information.  I'm guessing that my problem is the domain.  I've seen mentions to "the user name has to contain the "domain" which corresponds to the public IP adress of your data gateway."  I have no idea how to get the public address of my on-premise gateway.

In the root folder, QUAD-DB2 is the machine name for the network server.  (I have the folder structure shown in the root folder actually mapped as a drive to my computer, the mapped drive is called QUAD-DMV.  I've tried using this with the same results.)The domain I'm showing is what I used for the domain when I simulated this with a personal gateway and a folder on my computer.  I really need to get this process working where it is not reliant on my computer.  Any guidance is appreciated.

The issue was with the way I was typing the machine name and the related folders in the root path.  Easiest to find the path using File Explorer.

Hi Mabel,

 

Thanks for helping!  I must be missing something!  If I remote desktop into server that has the folders I want to use in my File System, the image below shows the domain and username(password) that I use.

After getting to the remote desktop, these are the system settings.

Here are the current settings I've last set.

I get the same error.  Does any of this provide any additional insight to you?
