CIFS you use like \\servername\sharename. Normally the servername is asked, you enter the servername. Instead of servername you can also use the IP address of the server. Then the sharename you shared for the scaned documents, eventually a username and password to access the share (and dont forget Windows access rights on the folder for the same user.)  Sometimes a authentication methode is asked. Just try whats working for you, plain text authentication should usually work, then try a better security methode if you need it. good luck.

Common Internet File System (CIFS) is the protocol used for file sharing.  What it is asking for is the path to a file share on your windows server such as mentioned above.  It will be in the form of \\servername\sharename.
