External Symbols Server on Network Drive

Has anyone ever successfully setup a Symbols server on a network share drive with Rider? I mean having rider automatically publish a symbol file to some network share like “//someshare.windows.core/symbols”. 

I wish Microsoft would fix this extremely convoluted symbols setup and let us easily embed it all into a package so we don't need to do anything but publish. But until then a network share seems like the easiest option since we don't yet have CI/CD setup. 

For reference I am trying to follow this article but am getting an error saying my Symbol Server URI is malformed in Rider Settings > Tools|External Symbols and it doesn't look like we have the “Path to Publish Symbols” option from VS.

For the symbol path using network path like \\symbols.contoso.local\Symbols

Please specify the protocol type like file://symbols.contoso.local/Symbols in Rider.
