I'm trying to connect to my sharepoint folder through WebDav, I can't find my correct credentials to do so

I need to connect to my sharepoint site through WebDav, which is still supported supposedly.

Right now, I'm using Cyberduck and WinSCP, I can't connect with neither.

I'm obscuring my personal info but here's basically what I'm doing, I'm trying to connect via WebDav (https) with the following info:

url: example.sharepoint.com
port: 443
user: example@mydomain.com
password: *App password generated through profile because I have 2FA set up*
directory: /sites/admin/Shared%20documents/

I'm getting "Error 403: Forbidden". Which leads me to believe I'm setting the wrong credentials, I know password is fine because I was able to login through network mapping with that password, which leaves the username.

A cyberduck dev told me I should use the following user format to log in through WebDav to sharepoint: DOMAIN\username.

But I just can't log in. Perhaps I haven't figured out the correct format. I tried


And so on and so on

But none work. So, I'm making this post asking for help. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Maximiliano Corbo

    According to the Cyberduck Help documentation, connecting to your SharePoint site through WebDav using Cyberduck and WinSCP, should connect to SharePoint Online with the built-in Microsoft SharePoint connection profile.

    These are general suggestions and might not work in your specific case, but please read and check if make sense for you.

    Hi @Maximiliano Corbo,

    Thank you for posting in this community.

    Perhaps you have checked that you have enough permissions to access that SharePoint file library?

    In addition, I found an article that documents similar problems and solutions to the problems you are experiencing, please see if it helps you: How to fix “The website does not support SharePoint Online credentials. The response status code is ‘Unauthorized'”.
