I try the steps to restore my back up in my server to a network mapped path (path is in another machine). But It executed infinitely with 0% progress on SQL server management studio. Please Guide me to restore DB to a network path.

The link you posted doesn't do that.

to attach a database on a network share you'll need to set trace flag 1807. This is NOT a supported configuration however.

See this link for details.
