It would be nice if Davdroid supported multicast DNS for address resolution.
I am running Radicale (CalDAV & CardDAV server) on my Linux laptop and sync my mobile with it. IP addresses are assigned as usual by DHCP. Problem is that I want to sync in various networks (at home, at work, …), and the IP address the laptop gets from the DHCP server varies.
I am currently have to configure the IP address of the laptop in dotted notation (192.168.x.y) for each LAN I want to sync in. Not very convenient:
- The DHCP server occasionally changes the address assigned to the laptop.
- Davdroid sees multiple accounts and hence multiple calenders.
On the laptop runs a Avahi, an mDNS server, advertising an xxx.local hostname. Couldn’t Davdoid support these addresses in addition to normal DNS lookup?
It doesn’t have to be a complete zeroconfig as in Managed Davdroid.
