How to back up sql server database to a network shared folder?

To backup a sql server database to a network shared folder ,  all you need is to add a backup device to target shared folder.

I cannot see the sql server instances ,it says the server is not running. Any help?

First of all ,backup agent should be installed on the ms sql server computer. (for more inforation , please visit SQL Server Backup Software Architectural Overview page)

If you installed backup agent on the sql server machine , and still no instance listed in configuration window , please do following :

Firewall settings for SQL Server Backup

Default ports for SQL Backup software are 6000 for SQL Backup Agent and 6001 for SQL Storage Server ,both ports are TCP port . Please make sure these ports are not blocked by firewall. If these ports are used by another program , you can change them in Backup Agent Manager and Storage Server Manager .
