Sync calendars and address books between Macs

1. Yes, install Xcode.
2. Just make sure that after everything is up and running, the computer acting as the server is turned on whenever you are trying to synchronize from a different computer.

If the server computer is not on, or if you cannot establish a connection, everything will be saved on the client computer locally, and synchronized the next time you connect to the server.

Sync calendars and address books between Macs
Authored by: yanro on May 16, '10 05:12:26PM


worked fine until the last thing to be done: where is HOME/Library? is that like Macintosh/Library oder is it <i>MyUserName</i>/Library?

tried copying your file into both locations (one at a time). logged out and in again.
When opening iCal there is an error saying:
"Der Server meldet einen Fehler.
Die Verbindung zum Server wurde abgelehnt."

Meaning: "the server says there is an error. the connection to the server has been refused."

Any help possible?

And when I go into the terminal and want to run the server in calendar/CalendarServer using ./run the following error message appears:
Macintosh:CalendarServer yann$ ./run

This could either be a previously started instance of your application or a
different application entirely. To start a new one, either run it in some other
directory, or use the --pidfile and --logfile parameters to avoid clashes.

launchctl bsexec failed: No such file or directory

is there maybe a link to the first problem?

When I wrote HOME/Library I meant that HOME is your home folder, meaning your username.

As for the errors - it seems that the first time you tried to connect to the server it was still not up and running, and the second time you tried to activate it it was already up...

When a connection is refused, it means that either the service you are trying to reach is not running, or that you did not specify the right port in iCal.

When you try to run the server manually, use the command:
./run -d

The -d switch sends it to the background.

now it functions all right!

in the downloaded file I had to change the path from home/CalendarServer/run to home/calendar/CalendarServer.

Maybe you want to correct this...

elsewhise everything is smoothly running. marvelous! I had been looking for such a feature for weeks!
