Synchronize iCal on multiple machines via WebDAV
Authored by: danieleprocida on Apr 16, '05 06:21:36PM

This suggestion might be useful for someone who has two Macs, and would like to have a single calendar between them, so long as she quits iCal on one before starting it up on the other. This is because - so far as I have been able to ascertain - iCal only reads a calendar file when it first opens it, even though it writes changes every time they are made.

So, this technique unfortunately won't help two people who want to share a calendar. Any changes that are made to the calendar by one user will be overwritten by the other user when the latter quits iCal.

I don't think there is going to be a way around this until either someone works out how to emulate a .Mac server for iSync purposes, or (as is promised for Tiger) Apple make it possible to share calendars without using .Mac.
