Subscribing from eventSherpa

blackrum says:

Hi all!
I've tried to subscribe to RtM list from evenrSherpa (http://www.eventsherpa.com) clicking on webcal:// link on settings page. EventSherpa tried to subscribe to list and asked for login/password. I've fillesd both fields but that program asked for it again!
When I tried to do the same from lists page (list was public) it subscribed successfully but didn't show any events. In this case when I tried to add an event from eventSherpa it said that there were no calendars subscribed!

It seems to work for lists with username/password if you change the URL to https:// instead of webcal://

Do you know if eventSherpa supports tasks? If not, that's the most likely reason that they're not being displayed on the calendar. Software such as iCal and Mozilla Sunbird supports both events and tasks, but I can't see any way in eventSherpa to view tasks.

Changing webcal:// to https:// didn't work. I've noticed that all references to subscribed calendars in ES end with *.ics. I.e. they point to FILE, not to DIRECTORY!

By the way: do you know other Windows applications which can be used like iCalendar clients to RtM? I've found only eventSherpa :(

And you're right: ES don't support tasks.

Hmm, that's weird -- I got it to access the password-protected address by using https://

Have you tried Mozilla Calendar? Also, if you happen to use Outlook 2003, there's a third-party plugin called Remote Calendars that lets you subscribe to iCalendar.

Hope this helps!
