I'm trying to connect to a team site from a mac as I am a site collection owner.

I used finder to connect to the server but I couldn't connect. Also on a Microsoft document I was told that I don't have sufficient permissions. I tried on windows machine with same credentials and it worked.

Any ideas ?

I saw a simple issue a while back. Please try the following, from John Ross's blog.

Here’s how you connect your Mac with OSX to a SharePoint library — this requires Office for Mac 2011:

  1. From Spotlight look for “Microsoft Document Connection” and open it.
  2. Click on the “Add Location” button in the upper left and choose to “Connect to a SharePoint Site…”
  3. Press the Connect button.
