[Davical-general] Getting started help

Ben Goren
So, this may well be a bit of newbie cluelessness on my part, but I'm having trouble actually subscribing to a calendar.

This is all on OpenBSD 5.8, installed via package.

I can access the DAVICal administration page just fine and have added an account. I can connect with a Web browser to https://server:8443/caldav.php and successfully log in, at which point I see, "GET requests on collections are only supported for calendars." I assume that means that everything should be up and running as far as DAVICal is concerned...?

But, when I try to subscribe, using either OS X 10.8.5's Calendar application or iOS 9.0.2's Calendar app, it first complains that the connection is not secure and then that "No CalDAV servers were found for '<server>'" (OS X wording).

Any suggestions on what I should try next...?

Thanks,

b&

What settings are you using to subscribe to the calendar? Had a few issues myself previously. Send screenshots if you can.

Re: Getting started help

Ben Goren
On OS X:

Calendar => Accounts => Add an Account

Account type: CalDAV
User name: ben
Password: hunter2
Server Address: server.host.name

It then complains:

> Server With Secure Communication Unavailable
>
> Your calendar account isn't on a server that can receive your calendar information securely.
>
> If a server isn't secure, others may be able to view your calendar information. To continue searching for your account on servers that may not be secure, and then set up the account if it's found, click Continue.

I do so, which takes me to an Account Settings step which is identical to the Add an Account one save it takes an optional description and has a fine-print warning, "No CalDAV servers were found for server.host.name."

If I keep clicking through similar warnings, I eventually get to a step, "Calendar Server Options." It's again the same as those before, but it adds an option for Server Path (I put in, "/caldav.php"), port (8443), a checkbox for, "Use SSL" (checked), and "Use Kerberos v5 for authentication," (unchecked). The initial warning here is, "The account information was not found. The host 'server.host.name' is not a WebDAV server." When I click through, the warning changes to, "An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made."

And that's where it just gets stuck.

I've since had a thought...I generated the SSL key with LibreSSL 2.2.4 as a 2048-bit x509 key with default options...could that be too new for 10.5.8's Calendar application...? I'm no SSL guru...if so, advice on how to generate an old-and-busted key that would let me use the damned thing would be appreciated....

Thanks!

Re: Getting started help

Hi folks,

are you using a self-signed certificate?
Then you better connect to davical with safari first, it will complain
about an untrusted certificate. Accept and store permanent exception.

Then OSX Calendar will connect to this connection.
Had the same stuff just yesterday.

Cheers,
Ingo

Re: Getting started help

Ingo's solution should work. I don't think the particulars about the key you've generated should be a problem for that version of Calendar but just in case, this page has some good information on SSH keys, including how to generate different bit lengths etc https://www.guyrutenberg.com/2007/10/05/ssh-keygen-tutorial-generating-rsa-and-dsa-keys/

Can you connect to the caldav server without SSL? 

Ta,
Jim.

P.S. Are you the same Ben Goren from WEIT?

I think I'm getting closer...after doing this (and on a different computer with a fresh install of El Capitan, just for good measure)...I'm now getting the following complaint:

> The server responded with an error.
>
> The URL https://host.example.com:8443/caldav.php encountered HTTP error 404. Make sure the URL is correct.

If I paste that URL into a Web browser, I get this:

> GET requests on collections are only supported for calendars.


Thanks for the help!

Re: Getting started help

Ben Goren
I do think the SSL problem is fixed...but I don't seem to understand the proper naming scheme for the URI-type stuff. Any variation of anything I can think to use for the path gets rejected -- /, /caldav.php, /user/calendar, /caldav.php/user/calendar, and many more permutations.

This is on OpenBSD 5.8, using everything installed from packages, and OpenBSD's own httpd Web server. I don't know if I'm just missing the magic incantation, or if some sort of rewriting needs to be going on, or...?

A pointer in the right direction would be most welcomed....

Thanks,

b&

Re: Getting started help

On my Calendar, which I've not touched in an age, I've got /caldav.php/calendar_name

This is on OpenBSD 5.8, using everything installed from packages, and OpenBSD's own httpd Web server. I don't know if I'm just missing the magic incantation, or if some sort of rewriting needs to be going on, or...?

A pointer in the right direction would be most welcomed....

[snip]

Depends upon where is caldav.php, relative to the server's DocumentRoot.

Our calendar server ended-up on the mail server, which already had
Squirrel Mail running and had not originally been built with DAViCal in
mind.  So DAViCal ended-up being installed under /cal.  Thus the URI,
in our case, is:

    https://mail.example.com/cal/caldav.php/<username>/calendar

Jim

That seems to be a problem at my end.

If I browse to /caldav.php, I get this:

> Get requests on collections are only supported for calendars.

But as soon as I add anything on the end of that (such as /caldav.php/ben/calendar) I get a 404 error.

I'm guessing this is likely to be a Web server configuration problem? Is there some directive I'm missing? Again, this is OpenBSD 5.8 with its built-in httpd.

The wiki lists which methods your webserver should support. Apache supports all required HTTP methods, nginx also supports these methods (not sure if the support is there without adding any modules), but I don't know the features of BSD's built-in httpd.

Installing DAViCal and configuring (the basics) is really straightforward on Apache - maybe you should check that out before you want to use the road less travelled?

Vincent

If I am not mistaken OpenBSD still uses Apache 1.x. Maybe this is the
reason since the configuration of Apache 2.x is different that for
Apache 1.x.

Could OP confirm this?

That was the case until this year. After a very brief flirtation with Nginx, OpenBSD now has its own Web server, simply enough named, "httpd."

So, I've now given this a try with nginx...and the symptoms are exactly the same as quoted above.

Any other suggestions...?
