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.
