Hi guys,

I have a Leopard server 15.2, it just setup Open Directory, and turn on ICal service on the Server Admin, How do i connect to the ICal server from other computers ?

As manual says " Configure the service parameters and turn on the iCal Service. As users login to the service with their CalDAV-enabled calendar applications, the service creates the needed directories and files"

I don't understand what is CalDave enabled calendar application here. Do i have to download it on each computer to able to use iCal server ? Thanks.

here are some info that might helps:

-about CalDAV:
CalDAV is a protocol allowing calendar access via WebDAV. CalDAV models calendar events as HTTP resources in iCal format, and models calendars containing events as WebDAV collections.
This allows users to publish and subscribe to calendars, share them collaboratively, synchronize between multiple users and synchronize between multiple devices. The CalDAV standard is an implementation of iCal on a WebDAV server.
When using CalDAV, all of the user's calendars are added to iCal.

-the iCal application in leopard is a CalDAV-enabled calendar application.
to access your ical server, you need to add a new account to it:
-On Leopard (10.5), open iCal.
-From the Menubar, choose 'iCal'(Next to the Apple menu)
-Choose 'Preferences';
-Choose 'Accounts';
-Click the + (plus sign) to add an account
-Give the account a Description
-Enter your username;
-Enter your password;
-Click the arrow to expand server settings

-Enter the Account URL in the syntax below, select 'add' and your ical server will return the complete URL required - do not edit the URL and select 'add' again if required
*** https://host.yourdomain.com or https://host.yourdomain.com/calendar (please check your server's settings.)

-Click Add;
-------------------

hope it helps.

Hi

Thanks for the tips, it's running now with leopard clients. Just wondering can we have Tiger client connect to to that iCal server ? I tried to use Tiger but the iCal application in Tiger doesn't have an option 'Accounts' like Leopard does.

Can windows or linux use iCal server from leopard server ? if it's possible, what is the right software/application for it ?Thanks alot.

Hi tinhnho,

looks like 'You need to be running the Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard release for a version of iCal supporting CalDAV.'

please check the 'Mac OS Forge' - http://trac.calendarserver.org/wiki/iCal ;

and you can find the list of client applications that support calendar server from the link below:
=============
Clients:

Apple iCal
Apple Wiki Server
Apple iPhone
Chandler
Mozilla Lightning
Mozilla Sunbird
Mulberry
Outlook plug-in
================
http://trac.calendarserver.org/wiki/CalendarClients

hope it helps.
