Port : 0 that is weird ! Can't tell why it does not connect, but if it uses a port 0, it wont work
Port 0 is the default setting in the Connector's dialogue screen
I checked, it works here with port 0 configured in the dialog screen.
Preserving anonymity, could you post the schema of setup parameters you used ?
In the <strong>Oracle Calendar client</strong> (the stand-alone software), to setup the connection with my company's calendar, I follow these steps:
1. On the starting "Connection Manager" screen, I click on New and it pops up a "Connection Editor" screen
2. I give a name to the calendar, say "mycalendar" in "Connection Name" field
3. In the "server" field I put the calendar server of my organization: <strong>calendar.mis.xyzcompany.com</strong>
4. Now I click on the "Lookup" button and it populates all other fields for me - with the following data:
Authentication: Standard Authentication
Compression: Run Length Encoding Compression
After these steps, the stand-alone software <em>successfully</em> connects to the calendar.
In the <strong>Oracle Connector for Outlook</strong>, to setup the connection, I follow these steps:
1. I run the Oracle Connector Configuration Wizard
2. In the first "Profile Settings" page, I create a new profile called "outlook" and click on Next
3. In the next "Service Settings" page, I check on calendar and put the following options in the required fields
Server name: calendar.mis.xyzcompany.com
User name: myusername
4. In the "incoming mail server" and "outgoing mail server", I put my company's mail server. I click on Next
4. Then it gives me a "Profile Successfully Configured" and I click on "Finish"
After these steps, I open up Outlook. It successfully connects to the mail server but is <em>unsuccessful</em> in connecting to the calendar and gives this message:
"The Oracle Calendar server is unavailable. The network may be down or the server name misspelled."
There is no "Lookup Server" button in the configuration wizard for the connector. And there are not these other fields either like Node, Authentication, Encyption etc.
I cannot figure out the solution
Thanks a lot
We have the same problem here. We are running Corporate Time to access our calendar system. I ran a port scanner to figure out which port our calendaring system runs, but the port changes everytime I close and reopen Corporate Time. Any suggestions? Thanks.
sorry for the late answer
I don't see anything unusual in your procedure. You really should post a SR for this case.
I have exactly the same problem. Desktop Client and PDA Sync work, but the Outlook connector doesn't find the server. Any more ideas on this?
