How to use CalDav to sync Calendar between WebTop and Thunderbird/Android?


(Wasim Ahmed) #1

NethServer Version: 7.3.1611
Module: Webtop

Hello @dev_team @webtop_team
I have been using ClearOS with Thunderbird and Android for my email, calendar and address book. ClearOS uses Caldav for Calendar syncing. I recently setup NethServer with Webtop, connected my device to neth. Emails syncs fine, but no calendar or address book sync. What can i do to sync my calendar with Webtop?

Hi, you need to use ActiveSync synchronization with WebTop. Caldav will be available later.

@dev_team @webtop_team
I dont really need CalDav if ActiveSync works works with WebTop. I am having Zero success connecting Android device to Webtop on Exchange/ActiveSync. I keep getting error Check Server Settings. Is there any documentation/instruction some sort on how to setup Activesync on Nethserver/Webtop? IMAP working fine with any device. But i would really like to setup Activesync so i can sync email and calendar both at the same time.

I am happy to report that I actually connected my Android device and Thunderbird successfully with Webtop. The problem was the SSL. I have a wildcard SSL from Comodo which i tried to install and thats what broke the connection. I did fresh install with default Nethserver self signed SSL and the IMAP/ActiveSync connection worked great.

Do i need to do something special to install my own SSL? Is there any instruction on installing 3rd party SSL properly?

Hi, could you guide me on how to sync Webtop calendars with Thunderbird?

You can do it using the web interface, take a look here:

I suggest to use Let’s Encrypt :wink:

I have successfully installed letsencrypt cert and can sync email, calendars, and contacts with my android phone. I can also sync email and contacts with Thunderbird but not calendars. Am I missing something?

AFAIK webtop doesn’t support calendar sync with TB, but i may be wrong.

@webtop_team any idea?

(Bill ) #11

So it looks like sogo might be a better choice.

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #12

WebTop is designed to be accessed from web interface, and it works quite well.

This is my daily setup:

  • mail and address book on TB
  • calendars on WebTop

@Tiago Caldav/CardDAV support is on the webtop roadmap.

(Tiago Fonseca) #14

I’ve seen the roadmap. Waiting for it.:slight_smile:

(Martin Droste) #15

@alefattorini are there any status updates? As I can see, in the webtop5 roadmap the point “CardDav/CalDav support” is crossed out. What does that mean? It’s already done or just “Is not done!”?

(Alessio Fattorini) #16

Good question @maddin I’m sure that the @webtop_team may have an answer for that

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #17

It means that the CardDAV/CalDav support has been removed from the roadmap.
AFAIK it was removed since there weren’t enough requests from customers, but I’m sure @nethcman and @webtop_team have a better answer.

(Alessio Fattorini) #18

We have to take into account many requests by the community as well. Just to mention some of them:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #19

Add me to the requester list, I’d like to see my WebTop contacts under TB! :wink:

(gabriele_bulfon) #20

CalDAV/CardDAV support is still on our internal roadmap.
Can’t say what happened to NS public document.
