Im practicing Log shiping for first time, and i hav a question.

I have two instances on same system, and using one as primary server and INST2 as sec server.
when I select backup setting from transaction log shipping tab,it ask me for network path and the local path.
I know the local path will be the path where i have made a primaryshared folder.
BUT what will be the network path?
my primaryshared folder is located at C:\primsharedfolder

It would be a UNC path that has sufficient permissions for the service account.
