Calendar Publishing from unfederated Exchange 2010 server (hosted)
Posted on 2016-09-05
I have a need to publish a customers calendar in order for it to be viewed (only) by another user within a separate exchange organisation - they also don't share a common server hosting, one in UK one in Paris. For discussion here lets call User1@company1.com the person I need to publish the calendar for and firstname.lastname@example.org the user who needs to view it.
I'm advised that it is possible to publish user1's calendar either through OWA or Outlook for access by User2 using a WebDav server. However I can't find much about how to establish a WebDav server for this need.
Can anyone confirm that this is possible and:
1. Point me at the suitable supplier of WebDav serves . . . dropbox or Box ????
2. State what the limitations of publicly sharing a caledar in this way are.
3. Clarify how WebDav differs from CalDav and perhaps how i could acheive the above using this technology/protocol.
I only seem to get negative reports when I google these topics . . should I be wary ???
In Outlook 2016 I see I can publish my own Exchange 2010 based calendar to the internet using WebDav and I'm prompted to provide the location where the files should be placed. I'm assuming I can't just use any old webspace here, it has to have a WebDav service operational? Confirmation and more besides would be helpful.
