CalDav Issues

First of all I would like to know if this is even the right forum for my problems.

In plain English, we run a CalDav server, among other things, to support our Adaptive Community Calendaring System. It works with Apple iCal, & Thunderbird but not with the Playbook supplied calendar app.I googled around and found some recomendations that indicate that the discovery part of the protocol is somewhat limited but if you use the URL of the actual calendar instead of the Principal you can see through tcpdump a good amount of handshaking. which I will describe in detail once somebody points me to the right forum.The problem is that even though I can see <calendar-data> stuff going back to the Playbook in response to a calendar-query REPORT, none of the events will show up in the playbook. I was able, at one point, to get events created on the playbook to show up on our server, the protocol seems to work in that direction at least. Anybody else have any similar problems? Which of the many BB developer forums would be a more appropriate place for this?

Re: CalDav Issues

This should go in the consumer PlayBook forum since you're not developing an application.  I'll move it there for you.

Re: CalDav Issues

hello TheManFromBievo,


the two following articles may help you, especially the second one:

KB29354 Unable to setup Calendar and or Contacts for a rogers.com account or btinternet.com account on the BlackBerry PlayBook



Besides, here is another attempt from a MacOS user:
