Cannot connect to smbclient file path

I started this exercise with a vpn and got through this part fine, however I now cant connect to htb with a vpn for some reason so im using pwnbox, Im doing everything the same but now have this error when specifying the end of the file path:

└──╼ [PS]>  smbclient -N -L \\\\{IP}\\

	Sharename       Type      Comment
	---------       ----      -------
	ADMIN$          Disk      Remote Admin
	backups         Disk      
	C$              Disk      Default share
	IPC$            IPC       Remote IPC
SMB1 disabled -- no workgroup available
└──╼ [PS]>  smbclient -N \\\\{IP}\\backups
do_connect: Connection to  failed (Error NT_STATUS_NOT_FOUND)

This is the same syntax I used with a vpn however with pwnbox it just doesnt work, what am I doing wrong ? any help would be greatly appreciated…
