Address Book Server allows you to share your contacts and calendar events with others connected to your network or over the internet. Each participants synchronizes their contacts with the server hosted on your own system. Address Book and Calendar Server supports the full Address Book and iCal Schema. The server also provides a friendly web interface which you can use to access your contact details when you not on your Mac. There is even an iPhone client which accesses the contact details on the server directly for when you on the road.
With Address Book Server you can synchronise your Address Book with others on the same network as well as over the internet. Contacts are synchronised with your own instance of Address Book Server.
Address Book Server comes in two parts a server and a client. The server should be installed on a centrally accessible Mac. The client goes on every Mac, whose Address Book you would like to synchronise.
During synchronisation contact information is fetched from the ABS server, compared with the local content, and any changes are written back to the server. Changes made via Address Book are synchronised in real-time with the server. Other clients will be brought up-to-date during their next synchronisation. This can either be done by making a change to one of their contacts, manually via System Preferences or on a schedule.
With Address Book Server supports 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard) on both Intel and PowerPC. It also does not require any subscription or charges. Upgrades have so far been free, which is a trend we will try to continue going forward. Take control of your contacts today on your existing investment.
Address Book Dates is a plug-in for viewing birthday and other date-related information from within the Mac OS X Address Book application.
