CalDAV and CardDAV are web protocols that use standard URLs for accessing remote resources, specifically Calendars, Tasks, and Contacts. When configuring access to these types of resources, the correct location needs to be provided via a URL string. If an attempt is made to access a resource that is shared (e.g. Public Folders), sufficient access rights have to be granted. Due to the security requirements of some mobile devices, it is recommended that a Signed SSL Certificate in Kerio Connect is configured.
When using an iOS-based device or Mac OS X, the configuration is performed automatically by browsing to the Kerio Connect Client login page and choosing the link to set up a device.
Assumptions for the paths used in the URLs for this article:
mail.example.com represents the hostname of the Kerio Connect server.
example.com represents the email domain where the item is located.
user-name represents the login name of a user.
resource-name represents the name of a room or equipment.
