How to connect Drive to SharePoint server

I'm looking for help connecting Adobe Drive to my SharePoint server.  I am not a server administrator, just an office manager who gets asked to provide IT support.  So this may be way too simple a question to typically show up in the discussion boards.  I've used both the URL address of the library in SharePoint I want to connect to (as taken from the browser address bar).  And I have tried various combos of our SharePoint server's IP address or server name (such as I would use when mapping a drive in the Windows environment).  I seem to be way off on my attempts.  Can someone give me a template for entering the Server URL as requested by Drive?


I'm using:

Adobe Drive 4

SharePoint 2010

CS6 Creative Suite

On a Win7 machine

    Apart for SharePoint (I'm using Alfresco as repository) I'm using all, so I can help.


    Launch Adobe Drive

    Click Add Drive


    Under Connector label, Select CMIS (Sharepoint is CMIS compliant)


    In the Server URL field, enter the URL of your sharepoint something like

         http://<IP Address>/...          LINUX     (my alfresco URL is /

         http:\\<IP Address>\...          Windows

    I assume SharePoint runs on port 80 so the port # may be omitted


    In the User Name field, enter your user name

    In the Password field, enter your pasword

    In the Display Name field, enter the name Drive will use to identify SharePoint

    Tick the "Remember Me" checkbox

    Finally Click Connect To



    If you entered valid data, Drive will connect you to your SharePoint repository.

    After that you could browse you data using the Open in Explorer button and ....
