Google iCal Subscription fails


I'm using Confluence 4.3.5 with newest team calendar plugin. I have a google apps calendar and tried to subscribe Google Cal to team calendars. But if I've entered all necessary data (iCal URL from Google Cal and working credentials) i get the error message, that

"Specified calendar does not exist. Possible problems: Check that the Calendar URL you provided exists and you have the correct permissions to access it."

All data is correct and verified but where's the problem? Any ideas?

Hi delph.ine,

Since it's a private calendar that is accessed through credential, try to use the private address of Calendar and see whether it worked. Usually it needs to use the private address instead of the normal address.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for sharing.

What is the difference between a private address and the "normal" address, and how do you get the private address?
