Free Address Book and Calendar Server
Authored by: LostInSpace2011 on Jul 08, '11 05:57:54PM
I started work on Address Book Server several years before the various DAV implementation became mainstream. At one stage I considered adding a DAV interface to the project, but after looking at the complexity I opted not to. What sets Address Book Server apart is that records are held locally on each of the clients as well as on the server in a relational database. Having records locally allows them to be accessed by other applications which are not DAV enabled. There is also an iOS app out which can be used to access the server directly.

In the past Address Book Server was available as commercially however from July 2011 onwards license keys are available for FREE (no strings attached) from the project website. In future the need for a license key might well be phased out. Currently it is still required to ensure only your clients which have the matching key are allows to sync with your server.

We have a forum where you can raise any questions specific to Address Book Server if you want to find out more.

Enjoy
