    Default Anyone at Zimbra know how to get this working?

    I want to make my Zimbra managed calendar at work accessible via Google Calendar. So far, I'm having no luck and seems that others are having the same problem. I'd also like ot have iCal on my Mac at home show the Zimbra calendar. I tried the Zimbra iCal iSync connector but the problems I've had with it were too many so I removed it.

    What problems were you having with the iSync Connector?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    I'm trying to get Google French holidays' calendar attached to my Zimbra account, what would be great to be reproduced by all my users (entered in the documentation if it works).

    But when I'm launching the sync operation, it throws me this error :
    Le URL suivant n'est pas disponible (maintenant?): http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/...blic/basic.ics
    For non french users, the first line says "The URL isn't available (now ?):"
    The second line is the URL for the ICS of the google calendar I try to sync, as someone explained before in this thread ...

    I'm running ZCS Network 4.5.4 over HTTPS only.

    Can it be a problem with a proxy configuration ???
    Because, ZCS is trying to get this ICS file by HTTPS connection, but, we use a proxy for web sessions, so, where can I configure a proxy parameter in order to allow Zimbra to get this calendar ?

    Yes of course it is, sorry for the silly question ...
    I have to export http_proxy for my mailstore server in order to allow him to get ICS files from the web !
    Is there a way to configure this and have this functioning without having to restart Zimbra services ???

    Thanks,
    regards !

    how can I indicate to ZCS to use a web proxy server in order to access ICS files from Google ???
    I know how to export http_proxy but for which user ?
    Is there a Zimbra parameter/attribute that could contain our proxy configuration ???

    I'm thinking this is my issue too ... has anyone found a work around for the SSL thing? I'm guessing it's because it's self signed *shrug*

    Bump! We are having this problem too. We use https, but our cert is real, not self-signed. Still Google will not load my calendar. It's not clear to me what Google is passing for username/password nor where the error is. We're using latest Zimbra Network Edition.

    Here's my latest attempt at a URL. I told Zimbra this external gmail username/password, so it should accept it.

    https://username%40gmail.com:PAssWoR...e.com/Calendar

    Note that I can 'curl' (remote get) this URL from anywhere, even when not logged into Zimbra, and it works OK.

    When will real 2-way CalDAV sync be available?

    I have used this php script, create a php file called calsync or something.

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    header
    ('Content-Type: text/calendar; charset=utf-8');
    header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="calendar.ics"; ');
    print 
    file_get_contents("https://".$_GET['user']."%40".$_GET['domain'].":".$_GET['pass']."@mail.yourserver.com/zimbra/home/".$_GET['user']."/".$_GET['calendar'].".ics");
    ?>

    Then you can use this url in google calendar.

    h.t.t.p://www.yourserver.com/calsync.php?user=user&pass=password&domain=yourser ver.com&calendar=calendar

    This can be a big security risk because your eliminating the ssl security on your site so setup an external password. Also this has to be uploaded to a different host that has access to both servers.
