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

Hi,

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:

https://office.myserver.org:987/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fShared%20Documents%2fgooglefeed&FolderCTID=&View=%7b3723F4FC%2d2278%2d4203%2dBF2C%2d5B9006F20993%7d

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

Thanks!
