In Windows I use WinSCP. How can I do this?

You can also use xdav via a command like https://[your xdav server]

Alternatively I recommend Expandrive which works quite transparently as a mounted disc. (The only issue if the disc is large is the possible indexation by Spotlight)

It sounds like you're using (S)FTP to connect to your server. Finder doesn't support SFTP and supports read-only access for FTP. You can use Terminal and the command line SFTP client, or you'll need to use a 3rd party app like Cyberduck or Transmit to connect via FTP or SFTP.

The Finder supports AFP, SMB (Windows file sharing), NFS, VNC, and probably a few others I'm forgetting via the Connect to Server window.

Details on supported protocols can be found in Finder Help

    Connect to Server does support FTP.

  • SSH file transfer protocols are SCP or SFTP, which (last I knew) are all that WinSCP supports. Hence the name, Windows Secure Copy. But you're right, The Finder will do standard FTP. Sep 20, 2012 at 7:57
  • @Alex Finder does read-only FTP. You can use the command line sftp client
