Looking for a little help getting the Funambol thing working.

During the postconfig run, I get some errors, and it doesn't come up on the port I'm trying to use.

Harumph...only one problem.

Calendar events, created on a system that is set to the Eastern time zone, show up 4 hours early on my Citacel calendar, where Citadel is set up to be America/New York.

Where on the Treo do you set it up to use syncml?? I always assumed it was something you couldn't set up yourself, that you had to go through your carrier and use their probably exchange-centric sync service. So I never bothered. But if I could run my own syncml server that would be a lot cooler.

Funmabol is a syncml server. :-)

I tried to use the Funambol syncml client, but every time I tap the synchronize button, it crashes my Treo, and reboots it.

Right now, I'm demo'ing the Synthesis AG syncml client.

The only problem I'm having seems to be Citadel/Funambol related.

I've got 303 contacts in my Treo.  When I try to perform a "slow" sync to upload all my contacts, Synthesis stops at 45, receives an error code 511, and only 37 actually make it into my contacts room.

Calendar and Task events all seem to make it in, though there's still the issue of Citadel's not displaying repeating events...but I know that the dev team is working on that, so it's cool.

There was an issue reported to me yesterday regarding contacts created by Webcit and phone numbers not being converted, which will get patched tomorrow morning Australian time.

Freakdog: 511 means the GroupDAV plugin had an error. I'll need a log of what the Treo sends to Funambol, which is best done by turning up logging to full ( http://wiki.bionicmessage.net/index.php?title=Groupware_sync_guide#Enabling_verbose_logging ). You could also get the addressbook pdb off the Treo and send it to me, that way I'll deal with any issues in one hit.

Oh, Funambol has a contacts sync client for the iPhone and Synthesis is landing their own soon. I order those who are thinking of upgrading from the iPhone 2G (or the iPod touch) to send their previous ones to me :)

I've turned logging to "ALL", run an attempt at a sync, and will email you the log, and my pdb.

Oddly enough, after having uploaded all my contacts from Outlook (via Funambol's Outlook connector) at work, I was able to do a "reload server" from my Treo with no problem.

I wish the Funambol connector for Palm worked on my Palm, without rebooting it.  It does seem to work better.

Hi all,

I'm a Microsoft Veteran and a Linux newbie. This is the most I've ever posted in a non political blog, forum, board.

I've been looking for and haven't found a forum or discussion group over at "bionicmessage.com" concerning the Citadel to Funambol connector. I've looked a bit here and have a impression that there may be one. I need more information on this thing, I have one that installed perfectly, Didn't work when it was running. Now won't restart after restarting the server a few days ago. 

Really want to see if this thing works. Hope someone can direct me to where I need to be.

Hi, Bill...

Yes, it works.

You'll want to go to the Funambol installation directory (I think it defaults to /opt/Funambol...personally, I installed into /usr/local/Funambol), and run "start.sh".

I'd actually recommend adding "/path/to/funambol/start.sh" to your /etc/rc.local and "/path/to/funambol/stop.sh" to your /etc/rc.shutdown.

I'm also exploring regular rc style start/stop scripts.

As to whether or not it's working, I ran into the same thing for a bit, when I first installed it...the documentation covers it, though.

You need to point your syncml client at the "groupdav-xxxx-v" sources, not the "task", "event" or "contacts".

Under "Modules", open the "groupdav" grouping, then "BionicMessageGroupDAVConnector".
You'll find the GroupDAV Calendar and GroupDAV Contacts options. Under each of those, depending on whether you're using a syncml client that can do vcal/vcard or SIF, pick the right options with the -s (SIF) or -v (vcard/vcal).

After that, it should work just fine.

Thank you, everything is back online now.  Still not working but maybe I'll figure it out or loose interest. I'm using the Outlook Plugin because in our organization thats what we'd need if this worked. Here's what I get:

    The plugin logs on and a message box pops up and tells me the server is requesting a upload of the contacts, calender and tasks, asking if it's okay . I click the okay button and the plugin starts processing my 31 contacts, then it stops processing. About 2 or 3 seconds later another message box pops up telling me that the server can't be accessed and to check it's location.

I'm confused how the server that requested the full sync can't be accessed or found when the data arrives (Sync starts). Kinda reminds me of a ex wife I once had.

My first thought was that it is a network issue. But itis not. The server has plenty of bandwidth and the hardware - software aren't under any stressed conditions.

I have internet on my pocket PC and plan on giving that a shot later today.

Once again, thanks for helping this old newbie out!

Gave this one up. The Webmail interface won't let anyone login and displays their password, another users logon, some linux code or other garbage when they try. Hope (I) it didn't break anything. Citadel sure seems tempermental at times.

Sure you wish to use Funambol with Outlook? I recommend using the Bynari plugin for Outlook instead which accesses Citadel directly, though I do support using Funambol+Outlook now. Anyway, the Outlook plugin does tend to be tempremental..

A copy of the log files would be very helpful, see http://wiki.bionicmessage.net/index.php?title=Groupware_sync_guide#Troubleshooting for instructions on how to get them

Our problem appears to be with the embedded photos in the contacts, its an issue I identified some time back but haven't been able to track down, basically when a vcard is saved to disk some newlines get deleted, breaking the formatting required to embed the photo. I'll put together a testcase, someone else may be able to shed some light on it.

Interesting.

Those "photos" would seem to be the pics that I'd attached to a couple of contacts on my Treo, for Caller ID.  I didn't realize that they'd actually be part of the vcard, since I don't seem to note them in the sync'd data in Outlook.

I'm playing around with v7 at the moment. Nothing really new for the connectors, just a recompile. If someone runs into a brick wall with the current implementation they could try a Funambol 7 build with the groupdav connector preinstalled:
