I have upgraded a client's MacBook to OS 10.6.2 (from 10.5.8, since 10.5.8 wouldn't give me a sync checkbox for Google in Address Book no matter what I tried, even a hack). Got the checkbox after the upgrade and successfully set up the account (yay!)
Went into iCal prefs to set up Google calendar sync. I got to the second page, "Calendar Server Options" and entered the data required, and I got the message, "The account information was not found. The resource specified by '/firstname.lastname@example.org/user/' could not be found on the server."
Where the above says "email@example.com", the actual message has the user's email address.
This is all set up properly on MY MacBook, and the only difference I can find is in the Port field. My MacBook shows the word "auto" in the field. On the other MacBook, the field is blank.
The settings are:
Account Template - Google
User name - the user's gmail account address
Password - the user's password
Server address - Google
Server path - /firstname.lastname@example.org/user/
Port - blank
Use SSL - checked
Use Kerberos v5 for authentication - not checked.
On the previous page, the settings are:
Account type - automatic (when I set it to "Google", it doesn't go to the next step. Is THIS where the problem is?"
Email address - my client's gmail address
Password - her password
If I set the Account type to "Google", I get "No CalDAV server was found at the specified address."
Where do I go from here?
