Sun Java System Calendar Server 6 2005Q4 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure Anonymous Access to LDAP

In general, anonymous access is allowed by default. If you want to restrict anonymous access, change the appropriate parameters.

  1. Log in as an administrator with permission to change the configuration.

  2. Change to the /etc/opt/SUNWics5/cal/config directory.

  3. Save your old ics.conf file by copying and renaming it.

  4. Edit one or more of the parameters in the following:




    Specifies the anonymous login calendar identifier (calid). The default is “anonymous”.


    Specifies whether or not anonymous access is allowed without a login. The default is “yes”. (Allows recipient of emailed calendar URL to access a free-busy version of the calendar without login in.)



    Specifies whether or not to allow anonymous users to write to a publicly writable calendar. The default is “yes”.


    Enables anonymous search of the LDAP used for user preferences. The default is “no”, which allows anonymous access. Specifying “yes” means using proxy authentication to do the search.

  5. Save the file as ics.conf.

  6. Restart Calendar Server.
