Looks like my issue has been around for a while (iOS 5.0.1 (iPhone 4s) unable to synchronize with Internet Calendar File (ics)) — has anyone come up with a fix yet? I am trying to sync my iPhone calendars with the calendar on my PC that is in .ics format. The .ics file is located on a home server that allows both me and my wife to see each other’s calendars and its been working great. Now, I want to be able to see my calendar from my iPhone 4 (with OS 6.1) .. and I’ve tried setting it up with: Settings / Mail, Contacts, Calendars / Add Account… / Other / Add Subscribed Calendar. With every possible configuration I can think of, I get the same response:
Calendar Subscription — Unable to verify account information
For server name, I’ve tried actual servername, IP address, etc; we do have security on the server but I put in the account name and password … ‘nuthin! Unable to verify. Through the phone's browser, I am able to open up the folder on our server and see the .ics file. The path is
I've tried sending an invite to myself, opening it in the phone, clicking on the link and I get this error:
Cannot Subscribe: Could not subscribe to the calendar nat_calendar.ics from myservername.
Seems simple. What am I missing here? Any ideas?
