I have a webdav (SSL'd) share that hosts my address books and ical
files. I use syncmab for address books and I use Sunbird and Lightening
to view/edit my calendar. All the transfers occur across the webdav
share. The only weakness is that there is no offline mode. Also my
palm is very unhappy with the ical files (which I use korganizer/kpilot
to read the ics and transfer to my palm).
Hope this gives some ideas. Also, I have a script that backs everything
up every 4 hours (using rdiff and hard links) as sometimes the ics file
gets corrupt (usually this occurs when the pilot syncs).
