I can not sync my Nokia N900 with horde groupware edition, which runs on my server, as long as I try to establish connection over https. Connection without SSL or using the SSLVerifyServer=0 option does the job, so I guess the problem can not lies elswhere by some wrong settings.
The certificate is self-signed and there are no problems with other programs like web browser. I imported the certificate manualy and I can confirm the certificate is placed under /home/user/.maemosec-certs/ssl-ca. I also compared the imported certificate with the original one from my server and there are no differences. So I put "SSLServerCertificates = /home/user/.maemosec-certs/ssl-ca" in the settings. But every sync-attemp ends with a "transport failed,retry period exceeded" error.
I found this message http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg01952.html so probably I am doing something wrong. But I am not able to figure out what.
If I do not use the SSL connection but set the MD5 athentication method - will this be as safe, as the SSL connection ?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance Karel
So after many months I was excited to try syncevolution with caldav and
carddav support today.
I executed my configuration commands as earlier posted on this mailing-list.
Please see the bellow pastebin URL that contains the details (versions,
configuration, and syncevolution commands)
The only n900 how-to I could find was:
Could somebody have a look at the pastebin and can tell me what I am
doing wrong? and what I should do to make the N900 calender and contacts
use caldav and carddav by default!
Thanks in advance,
Jelle de Jong

ActiveSyncSource.cpp: allow retrieval of items beyond the
eas_sync_handler_get_items has a window (currently set at 100 items),
and a "more_available" value that's returned if there are more items
available than it's able to retrieve in one call. This patch uses this
value and loops the _get_items function as long as there are items.

I was able to set up sync between my horde 4 groupware edition and my nokia n900 using syncevolution. I had to make a small improvement to the horde groupware by adding the entries homeEmail and workEmailto the frontend and the DB backend and now I can sync the normal, home- or work-email between the phone and the groupware.
I just followed thios howto : http://edeca.net/wp/2010/01/modifying-fields-in-the-turba-addressbook/
I would like to add more fileds, like gender or skype account - which are pressent in the n900 adress book. Can somebody please explain to me where can i find the definitions about how to define this fileds, so the syncevolution recognize them right ?
For example here is the definition of homeEmail :
$attributes['homeEmail'] = array(
'label' => _("Home Email"),
'type' => 'email',
'required' => false,
'params' => array('allow_multi' => false, 'strip_domain' => false, 'link_compose' => true)
For example I am totaly unsure about the "type" of the field gender i would like to set.
Thanks in advance for an explanation Karel
