Ah! I came here to ask exactly the same question. For some time I have seen these two accounts from my DAVx5: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org ug and I wondered which was the correct place to store my contacts. So I need to use the “ug” one…
@j-ed - YES, you are correct. My phone was on my public (no password) wifi that has no access to the LAN that is password protected. It was designed to keep visitors out of my stuff.
And it worked - it kept me out of my stuff.
Thanks for seeing what should have been obvious to me!
OK, the problem is solved.
If I set the proxy in the Wifi connection, Android says that the connection is limited. As soon as you put the same proxy but in transparent mode (not set in Android, but filter correctely by the router when Android try to connect to outside), the connection is fully established and the synchronization is immediately done.
Sorry for the noise.
I would appreciate if one day, you may remove the needed support to Android sync…
Thanks a lot
@j-ed You were right! The issue was on the Nextcloud side - apparently some of the metadata of my contacts had been switched around. I fixed that and now my problem is solved. Thanks for the quick help.
@devvv4ever Thanks for your follow up. I was syncing to the Synology Calendar “My Calendar”. To be sure I changed the name to something very distinctive and posted on my phone making sure I was posting to that calendar. And it worked! So guess it was user error on my part. Thanks again for your help.
@rfc2822 I think I’ve figured out the reason for the error message.
When I previously tried to enter the ip-adress, I asked the app to prepend https://, which is probably the reason why it didn’t allow for “:5001” to work. My best guess is that the app does the error check without virtually prepending https.
Tested it while manually adding https and port, and now it is working flawlessly.
