    Default Syncing Zimbra with Google Calendar

    We have had multiple requests from our organization to sync Zimbra with Google Calendar, since some people already use that from everywhere. Since they have an API, I'm wondering if there is already a way to sync Zimbra with it?

    you can create a folder in zimbra to be remote ical folder:

    create a new calendar
    check the 'synchronize appointments from remote calendar'
    enter the ical feed url supplied by google (in the calendar details page of the calendar settings).

    I just made a calendar on google and tried this, and yes, zimbra can read the google calendar as google offers it in ical format. No changes can be made on the zimbra side of things though, so you cant maintain the calendar with both tools.

    I'm trying to do this the other way around.
    I want to see zimbra in google calendar.

    I would like to do this privately, using username and password maybe. But for now i know only public calendar import.
    So i publish my calendar, and i get an url like this:
    http://server.com/zimbra/home/username/Calendar

    I goto google calendar and try to add it, but it doesn't seem to work.
    Does anyone know why this is?
    Has anyone tried to import zimbra calendar into google?

    Failed to import calendar from "http://server.com/zimbra/home/username/Calendar".

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    Default Relay Scripts For Securely Showing Zimbra Calendar iCal Feeds in Google Calendar

    I put together a set of "relay" scripts to securely share Zimbra calendar iCal feeds with Google Calendar (and other tools). You can see the details (and the scripts) here. These are working well for a number if users at our Zimbra installation.

    Argh... I installed the script, replace the host/domain names with your own on calendar.php and put the right URL in calendarurl.php I keept the $key and $iv values.

    I got an URL point to the script calendar.php but when I use that URL to add a calendar in Google calendar it said that this email address does not contain a calendar in iCal or GData format !?

    What's wrong ?

    Thanks for your help.

    What happens if you open that URL directly from your browser? You should get an ICS file iCal formatted data. If you get something else, that should give you a clue to the problem.

    And you should definitely change the $key and $iv values for some new random keys. So that your data isn't easily decrypted. Just make sure you use the same new values in both scripts.

    I only got :

    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    <h1><h1>
    <body>
    </html>
