Share one iCal file between multiple users on one machine
Authored by: nox on Oct 27, '03 12:11:38PM

Great Tip , Thank you.

I am now sharing my ical with people in my office.

I did however create a symbolic link pointed to my calendars on my OSX Server machine. I am also running WEbDav Ical , which allows you to view the calendar online.

On my server machine ( Jaguar Server ) I did the following:

Created a new user called calendars
I also enabled AFP

On my client machine ( Panther ) I did the following:

From Finder Menu select GO | CONNECT TO SERVER

I typed in my IP and connected

I typed in my username "Calendars" and the password for it.

In Options I made sure that I checked Add Password to Keychain and saved preferences ( this way it will automount without any interaction)

I also added the Server from Folder to my Startup items in my Account Profile.

Now my calendar resides in a AFP server.
I think I will also make PHPiCal work with it so my calendar is also viewable via http.


Thanks again for that hint.
