    Default iCalShare and proxy servers

    Having only just discovered the icalshare service, I've picked added one of the calendars from there to my account on my home zimbra server, worked great, no problems. Thinking that this could be useful in work, I'm finding that it cannot locate the file and it looks like this is due to the work server being behind a proxy server on post 3128 and needing authentication. The home server is behing a firewall that does transparent proxying.

    The calendar I'm trying is webcal://ical.mac.com/ical/UK32Holidays.ics and the error shown is:
    Code:
    The following URL is not currently reachable:
    webcal://ical.mac.com/ical/UK32Holidays.ics
    Any ideas?

    If you login to the Zimbra box can you run this?

    wget http://ical.mac.com/ical/UK32Holidays.ics

    If not then it's not open to the internet.

    Yeah, that works fine:

    mail:~ # wget http://ical.mac.com/ical/UK32Holidays.ics

    => `UK32Holidays.ics'

    192.169.0.1 is the internal address of the proxy (Smoothwall Adv Firewall 4.0) it proxy's the web on 3128 but 801 seems to be what suse10 wants in it's proxy config section. A username and password is provided in the YAST configuration of the proxy, and the server can access the net just fine, Zimbra seems to like it less though.

    I know some work has recently been done to make zimlets proxy aware and I now the google translator worked on this system, but I just now checked it and that's not working either. Any chance of just adding a section to the UI to allow us to specify the proxy settings if desired? I get the feeling it may resolve a lot of issues.
