MFC scanner not able to scan to network folder

A Brother MFC 7860 attached by USB to a Windows7 workstation in a Server 2008 domain is unable to scan to a shared folder on the server.  
The MFC software suite is not able to browse to "Network", it is able to browse to the network drive which is mapped on the workstation, but the scan saves instead to the default local folder rather than the specified network folder.
How would you recommend enabling scanning to the network folder?

The links posted by reach2sandeep just show the interface.  I setup the software in advanced mode and chose the network path through the mapped drive as described in the KB.  The problem is that it scans it to the users local pictures library under Brother scans, instead of the specified network path, no error message.
It is 64 bit, and this is the one time I used the CD to install the drivers.  Will download latest and test.   Will be next week before I am at the machine again so I will close the post in 1 day.
Assuming that new drivers do not solve the issue, is there a way to see if the server is preventing the machine from connecting?  The MFC does have network capabilities, ethernet, but I would prefer to  keep the install local; assigning it an IP address may solve the issue, but if there is another way..

I will however, check the path, as noted by reach2sandeep, and test the correct path, \\servername\servershare\scansfolder, but I am almost positive that is what is currently entered.

The user has permissions to the network folder from the account they are printing from.

Reinstalled with new drivers/software, also changed it to a wired network connection with static IP.  Still unable to access network share.  Called Brother who says that server 2008 is not supported, I tried connecting to the server by IP address also.
I'm going to see if I can install a folder monitoring utility, which will move the files from the computer to the shared folder.
