Using a Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 and Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.4.7 connection to SharePoint 2013 build 15.0.4667.1000 utilizing the "Document Connection" app that comes with Office 2011 shows error, "The connection failed." Cannot check documents in our out nor save them.

Document Connection does not prompt for credentials upon entering SharePoint URL. Also tried basic authentication under Preferences.

The issue appears to reside in the implementation of security patches to the SharePoint servers related to US-Cert bulletin TA14-290A (POODLE). Looks like Office 2011 for Mac does not support TLS 1.0 or higher.
