ZCS 8.6.0 open source and Outlook

Hello, I'm using Zimbra open source edition. I'd like to share calendars with Outlook client but it doesn't work. :|
I created a public calendar in Zimbra, then I clicked on the Outlook link (webcal) but I get errors in Outlook. It won't open or sync.

So I wonder if it should work or if we need to use the network edition with outlook connector :?:

Thanks

Hi,
What errors are you getting? I have just set up the same and I had port forwarding errors. Once the ports were open all way good.
Thanks

Hi,
Outlook tells that it "cannot check or add the calendar. Check if the calendar link is valid." (translated from french).
The link is what Zimbra gives me :
webcals://xxx.xxx.xxx:8443/home/admin@xxx.xxx/sam

I also tried with "https", "webcal", without port etc. It won't sync. I can only do the first synchronisation by adding the calendar in my outlook profile. (control panel)

I disabled firewall on both Windows and Linux, but the problem is the same.

I have the same errors with Outlook 2010 or 2013 and Zimbra 8.5.1 or 8.6.0.

Is there special anything to configure ?

Hello Sam,
I am not sure about using Outlook, just a tiny example using other Email Clients, for example Thunderbird, which supports standards as CalDAV
  • https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Accessing_Zimbra_Collaboration_Server_with_Thunderbird

I saw as well that you can find couple of CalDAV plugins for Outlook, some of them free, other paying, and then you will be able to sync your Calendar, and Contacts if the plugin supports CarDAV as well.

You can always try, and purchase Zimbra Network Edition https://www.zimbra.com/try/zimbra-collaboration-network-edition/, which brings the Zimbra Connector for Outlook that fix all this issues.

Best regards
