Iphone as Client

Hei,

me again.

Davical up and runinng. Sunbird/Thunderbird Lightning is working
perfectly, but i'm a bit confused, how to set up an Iphone (OS 3.1, I
think). Following the instructions in the wiki, I end up with an error
in account-Confirmation.

Just to be sure: Application url should be (accountnames are E-Mail-Addresses):
https://my.server.de/caldav.php/my at account.name/home/ ? (Iphone ist
suggesting somethin like
https://my.server.de:443/principal/users/my%40account.name

Any hints?

Thanks once again

Hanns

Hi Hanns,

on my side, I use https://my.server.ch/caldav.php/myuser, and then I
see all my calendars.

(iPhone 3G running 3.1.2)

yes there was a problem using a self-signed cert on my server.
i dont remember exactly what i did bus the cert has to be accepted.
if the iphone caldav-client does not ask you to accept the cert try to
point your safari-browser to https://my.server.ch/ and accept the cert.

and i acknoledge the URL: https://my.server.ch/caldav.php/myuser
do not put the ressource (e.g. /.../myuser/home) into the url.

additionaly check the port number.
it switches to 8443 instead of 443 (because its the default ssl-port of
apple's caldav server implementation) when activating SSL

right, and this trick is sometimes needed on the Mac as well, if you
accept a self-signed cert with Safari, it is stored to the right place
so iCal doesn't bark on it. Worked for my Zimbra caldav server tests.

Thank You, Sirs,

it works. After correcting the url to
https://mein.ser.ver:443/caldav.php/my%40user.de the Iphone is now up
and running.

Merci

Hi Hannes,

You may well want to add a ':443' or ':80' in there - the iPhone
defaults to looking at port 8443 for SSL or port 8008 for unencrypted
traffic, and from memory I don't think it looks at 80 or 443 unless you
specify them explicitly.

So if you're running on the default Apache port, without SSL, then you
probably will want to specify:

http://my.server.de:80/caldav.php/my at account.name/home/

Or, with SSL:

https://my.server.de:443/caldav.php/my at account.name/home/

If you are using e-mail addresses for usernames then it's possible you
need to do the urlencoding of '@' into '%40', although I did think that
the iPhone does that for you.

Cheers,
Andrew.

Hi,

sorry, I should have been reporting earlier: Everything ist up and running.

This was one of my two mistakes: I forgot the url-encoding while
correcting the iPhone-default. Second: A simple typo ... still not
used to the virtual-iPhone-Keyboard.

Thanks to all.

Hanns
