Transmit is an FTP client for Mac OS X developed by Panic which also includes capabilities to mount SFTP, Amazon S3, and WebDAV connections. The client is a shareware so it’s free to evaluate but after the trial period is over you’re limited to seven-minute sessions.

This guide describes how to use Transmit to mount your DreamObjects buckets. For more information, please visit the Transmit website:
