One of the best features of iPhoto and iTunes is their ability to quickly and easily share playlists and photos among computers on a small network without any configuration thanks to Apple's Zeroconf/Rendezvous/OpenTalk/Bonjour network auto-configuration technology. iCal, however, sorely lacks this feature. CalTalk fills the gap by making it almost as easy to share, browse, and subscribe to iCal calendars as it is iPhoto albums and iTunes playlists. Simply install CalTalk on your computers, check "Share my calendars" to share your own calendars, and double-click the names of other peoples' calendars
What's New
Version 1.1:
  • CalTalk shares can now be password protected.
  • On Tiger, CalTalk now uses hostnames instead of IP addresses when opening network calendars in iCal. This should make CalTalk work for computers with dynamic IP addresses.
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.3 or later, iCal 1.5 or later

This seems to be a great little application. It would be perfect if it could share calendar groups to be visible as one, like the iCal web-publishing does. This is a feature that would make CalTalk truly useful for my company's purposes.

This is it. This is really IT!!!

Nothing else that I've tried compares. There have been web based "solutions", and PHP based "solutions", etcetera. All of which I've never been able to sucessfully set up a simple iCal calendar sharing route between my computer and my wife's.

Now it's possible. This developer is a saint. Thanks and thanks again. I will donate to this program without hesitation.

I only have one request. That is, to make it so that the application icon, which looks great and all that, but in my humble opinion, I don't want to have my dock nor the application switcher filled up with 'passive' programs that I rarely go in and work with, since they just 'sits' there, if you know what I mean.

So, an option of hiding the icon in Dock and the Application Switcher is all that I can think of, being left for my desire. Otherwise, I'm totally happy now that I can finally sync up my calendars with those of the computer right next to me.

Thanks! This is brilliant.

peanut butter had trouble on 19 May 2006
Can't get a Tiger (10.4.6) Mac to connect to a Panther (10.3.9) Calendar.

(Panther can use Tiger's calendar)

Tiger can see the Panther "User", but when I refresh list, or click on the user name, it gives this error, "Error Getting Calendars: There was an error fetching list of calendars, can't connect to host, URL:hhtp://.local.:24080/index.plist"

Firewall turned off on both Macs. It can see that the panther calendar is there. Panther connects to Tiger calendar correctly. Passwords turned off on both Macs (and of course digest authentication off).

I tried a number of different settings, turning on and off the firewalls, using different ports, etc. Nothing worked.

Any thoughts???

I am encountering the exact same problem as Peanut Butter. Can't sync my Mac OS X3 with my iMac G5. Is there a fix explained anywhere?
