Question re linking to a folder in SharePoint v3 on SBS 2008

I would like to allow a service (Google Transit Feeds) to link to a folder on our SBS 2008 Sharepoint site in order to pick up data automatically. The service just needs a URL, a user name, and a password.

The trouble is that my URL looks like this and I'm afraid it's going to cause problems:


Is there a way to translate that in to a straight forward link to the folder?
