How does one connect to webdav?

I ran through all the steps listed in the instructions to create webdav folder, app, and users and all of that goes fine.

But then what's the url that I use to connect? I'd like to do this using the Finder on a mac. (Go > Connect to Server) and mount a share on my desktop so I can store files there.

Create a new site to serve the WebDAV app - you'll be able to access it using whatever domain you assign to the site.

Duh... of course!

That worked perfectly. Thanks!

BTW, is it possible to change the permissions on a particular folder in WebDav so to create something similar to Mac OS's dropbox? I.e. so that a particular user can put files into a folder, but cannot see other files in that folder?

From what I know of our webdav installer and how webdav works you won't be able to change the permissions on a directory without causing it to deny you access. A simple upload form that uploaded to the correct directory on a web site would be quicker and more effective.
