HTTP drive mapping on MAC

I need to map to a drive on a MAC. The mapping is a HTTP location. It work fine in Windows and would like to do the same on my MAC. The path is http://www.domainname.com/foldershare

Any ideas? I have tried connect to server, but after I put in the credentials I get an error saying there was as problem connecting. Also, if this can't be done in OS X normally , maybe someone knows of third party software that can help.


Thanks!

Try substituting smb for http

ie.  smb://www.domainname.com/foldershare

That does not work. I don't even get prompted for a login with that format.

Are you putting smb://www.domainname.com/foldershare  into the Connect to Server Menu in Finder or into a web browser?

Ok. I have done a bit of research. Http should work on Connect to Server. What happens when you try? Do you get a login prompt? Is your login accepted?

I do get prompted for a login with the connect to a server option, but after than it just says there is a problem connecting.

Also, Cyber Duck doesn't work for this share. There isn't an option for NTF, SMB, or CIFS. Webdav does not work.

If you are using http: that should be webdav.
My recollection is that on Cyberduck there are separate boxes for the domain and path, ie. you don't put in smb://www.domainname.com/foldershare
instead you put in smb://www.domainname.com as the server and /foldershare in the path box.
