CardDAV and CalDAV Settings

Please point your CalDAV and CardDAV capable client to these addresses:

For CalDAV:
https://apps.kolabnow.com
or if that did not work:
https://apps.kolabnow.com/calendars/test%40kolabnow.com
For CardDAV:
https://apps.kolabnow.com
or if that did not work:
https://apps.kolabnow.com/addressbooks/test%40kolabnow.com

When using the alternative address, please make sure to replace the last part (test@kolabnow.com and domain) with your actual username or switch to a client that is able to auto-discover the correct addresses based on the short address.

Files

The easiest way to access your files is using the web client. In the top right corner, you can just choose ‘Files’.

You can also use any WebDAV capable client to get access to your files. Just point it to one of the following locations.

https://apps.kolabnow.com/files

webdavs://apps.kolabnow.com

davs://apps.kolabnow.com

The first should work for most people. Try the others only if the first one does not work for you.

ActiveSync

Kolab also supports the proprietary ActiveSync protocol. In order to connect your client to Kolab Now via this protocol, please use the following server address.

apps.kolabnow.com
