    Ok I have a server that I want to access from a windows pc, I can do it on a mac fine in finder but i can't find a way to open up the server in windows explorer!! If I type the server into windows explorer it opens it up in google chrome (my default browser) and it doesn't let me replace or add files and it looks like this:[​IMG]
    So is there any way I can open it up in windows explorer or any other way i can replace and add files?

    P.S.
    1.File Zilla only works for ftp while this is an http server.
    2.If I add a network location for this it says it's not a valid location when it is.

    HTTP servers are meant to be display only. Are you saying that your Mac allows you to replace files on the http server ?

    Did I forget to say it was a webdav server? I searched "Webdav server viewer" on google and found an application called "Cyberduck" that works!
