Problems connecting to Baikal via CalDAV

[ Edited ]

Hi everybody,

 

this is my first post. After a long search on the internet I couldn't find anything related to my exact problem and hope to find some advice here. Sorry, if this question has been asked and I didn't find it.

 

I have a Baikal server running on my Synology DS114 NAS and created an address book and some calendars. Both can be synched with Thunderbird (via Lightning + SOGo) and Android (via CalDAV and CardDAV account plugins). Now I tried the same with my brand new Q10 (first Blackberry for me). The CardDAV connection works and synchs, but CalDAV doesn't really. It seems to connect and detect my calendars (there are five). But after finishing synchronization (you can see the synch status in the calendar app - it takes a while) the items are not displayed in my calendar (yes, the checkboxes in the administration panel are checked, so they should be shown - it works with another gmail calendar, which I am following).

 

I figured, it might be an issue with the server address. So I fiddled around with it, to no avail. Here is, how my CardDAV is configured:

MYDOMAIN:14789/baikal/card.php/addressbooks/USER/default

You can see, I skipped the "http(s)" and the last dash. 14789 is an https port, I am using, since 443 didn't get through my firewall somehow.

So I tried this for CalDAV:

MYDOMAIN:14789/baikal/card.php/addressbooks/USER/CAL

with CAL beeing my five calendars in turn. Then I realized that within each of the five CalDAV account, there were all five calendars included. I figured,

MYDOMAIN:14789/baikal/card.php

(of course with User and Password set) is all I need to connect and get all my calendars.

 

But still, after synching, nothing is displayed in the calendar app. I tried to put "https://" in front, and all sorts of subfolder combinations in the back. No success.

 

This all seems to be a very minor problem causing major distress. :-)

So please, can someone help me with this?

Thank you so much!
