Sync Outlook 2010 personal calendar to Sharepoint 2010 Calendar

Experts,

We need to know if there is way to sync items from a personal calendar on Outlook 2010 with a SharePoint calendar. The current option we have is to connect the SP calendar to Outlook 2010 client then copy over the items to personal folder. However, we are looking to sync the connected SP calendar to the personal calendar. This way, they don't have to manage two calendars. Is this possible or does anyone have a workaround or alternate solution?

Systems:

Exchange 2010
Outlook 2010
SharePoint 2010

Teylyn -

Thanks for the article but we are already doing this. Maybe there is a confusion here. We don't want to copy items from personal to sharepoint and vice versa. Just an automatic sync when i update my personal calendar or when I update my sharepoint calendar.

As an option, see this thread:

Basically you could e-mail enable the SharePoint-based Calendar and send invites to it. Not exactly what you are after, but an idea...

Otherwise I think you are limited to custom developed solutions like the following:
