Share Free/Busy With Exchange

Postby kirme3 » Fri Apr 14, 2006 12:01 pm

I've tried to find something about this on the forums, but haven't seen it anywhere, so excuse me if this is a duplicate.
Would it be possible to share the Free/Busy status of a Zimbra user with an Exchange user? This would be most helpful while we migrate users to Zimbra.

if they use outlook, they can set the internet free/busy url to point to the zimbra server.
In outlook:
1) Go to:

tools->options->calendar options->free/busy options
2) Set the search location to:

http(s):///service/pubcal/freebusy.ifb?acct=%name%@%server%
when you attempt to create a meeting request with user@company.com, outlook will send a free/busy request to
http(s):///service/pubcal/freebusy.ifb?acct=user@company.com

That worked very nicely. Is there any way to do it the other way around? Let the Zimbra users view free/busy info of the Exchange users?

Sam - Is there a way to secure this or can anyone access this information?
