Z10 CalDav and CardDav Issues

 

I have a Mac OSX server running both Address Book Server and Calendar Server (carddav and caldav) which have previoulsly worked perfectly with my iPhones.  Neither of these work on the BlackBerry. I understand that very few implementations of the standard work in the way Apple's does and interrogate the server for the calendars/contacts related to a particular user but efforts to hardcode the absolute address of a calendar or address book in the server field have failed.

 

There is very little information to indicate whether protocol or port numbers need to be specified in the server address.

 

In an effort to give the Z10 a chance and aware of Apple's propensity to mess around with standards I have subsequently tried two other calendaring and contacts servers (baikal and radicale to name two) and had no success connecting to either of these with the Z10 either.

 

Not great.

I wonder if you could run a program such as OpenChange in front of your existing infrastructure to make it look like an MS Exchange server to your BlackBerry

I can confirm this, both with baikal and radicale. It looks like there is something going wrong with authentication because I can see 401 and 405 errors.

 

I don't have any problems serving caldav and carddav to a Iphone, though. I'll try to gather more information about the problem.

Does the baikal problem still exist?

I finally got CalDav working with Zimbra, everything is good except for one thing: most invites I get are stored with reminders turned off. I have to enable them myself explicitly. Still, it is much much better than having no shared calendar at all, everything else seems to be working, updates sync nicely, etc.

Assuming my email as myuser@mycompany.com, I used settings like this:

User name: myuser@mycompany.com
Email: myuser@mycompany.com
Server: https://mail.mycompany.com/dav/myuser@mycompany.com/Calendar
