New CalDAV Synchronizer for Outlook



  • I just stumbled upon this Blog post from nextCloud announcing a CalDav Synchronizer for Outlook users
    https://nextcloud.com/blog/nextcloud-offers-caldav-synchronizer-for-outlook-users/

    This might also improve the Outlook - Kolab compatibility. I haven't tested it yet but will definitely do so soon. If anyone tests it, please report results here too.



  • First tests with CalDav Synchronizer V 2.15.1.0 were not successful.
    With the Generic CalDAV profile and link for CalDAV clients from Kolab, always comes the message that Autodiscover has a problem.

    More details would be welcome (details, details, details ..) You can create a task here: https://git.kolab.org/project/view/21/ for that which would be quite helpful as well. Please be sure you are using the most recent syncrotron, e.g. the version packaged with 16.1



  • This is old, but this plugin works like a charm for us BUT I had to tweak iRony like for macos X native client (which I happend to use myself) as suggested on several places on the web (notably here: http://www.admin-magazine.com/Archive/2014/21/Kolab-iRony-with-CalDAV-and-CardDAV-support/(offset)/6), we have this in our apache setting (we had a dedicated virtualhost for all DAV things):

    SetEnv DAVBROWSER 1
    <VirtualHost *:443>
        ServerName dav.mydomain.com
        ServerAdmin infogerance@mydomain.com
        DocumentRoot /usr/share/iRony/public_html/
        ErrorLog logs/caldav.yourkolab.com-error_log
        CustomLog logs/caldav.yourkolab.com-access_log combined
        <Directory "/usr/share/iRony/public_html/">
            AllowOverride All
            Order Allow,Deny
            Allow from All
            RewriteEngine On
            RewriteBase /
            RewriteRule ^\.well-known/caldav   / [R,L]
            RewriteRule ^\.well-known/carddav  / [R,L]
            RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  !-f
            RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  !-d
            RewriteRule  (.*)                 index.php  [qsappend,last]
        </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>
    

    Once macOS X was fine (I'm under sierra), the above mentionned plugin was fine also (calendars, contacts, shared calendars).
