How to add a UNC paths shared folder to inputs.conf in universal forwarder?


am trying to add new input in the inputs.conf which is a network shared folder   to forward some logs from a device where it has no forward logs option 

when viewing splunkd.log i see that the username and password are wrong

09-19-2023 21:59:46.953 +0300 WARN FilesystemChangeWatcher [10812 MainTailingThread] - error getting attributes of path "\\\df\InvalidPasswordAttempts.log": The user name or password is incorrect.

although i can access the shared folder with a browser on the UF host with no problems 

by the way am using my Microsoft account to login to the windows11 where the UF resides

any suggestions ?
