Having your own calendar service is one of the benefits of running Mountain Lion Server. Doing this yourself on your server adds privacy to your schedule and allows you to have complete control over who views and uses your calendar. Mountain Lion Server makes it easy to set up a calendar service and I walk you through that set up process in this screencast. The calendar service offers some great features and in this screencast I cover:
- The initial set up of the Calendar Service.
- How to add locations to your Calendar.
- How to add resources to your Calendar like equipment that people could check out or schedule.
- How to open TCP ports 8008 and 8443 in your firewall for the calendar service to work.
- How to set up your client machines to use the calendar service.
- How the service works between two machines to add and receive calendar events.
