I have the ics integrated in Thunderbird Lightning, but it won't load the calendar with the errorcode:


When I open the downloaded file, the characters seem to be encoded in Latin-1. Did this change with a recent update?

I'm using version 5.3.59500.59500


The Connector in server.xml is as followed:

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" 
           URIEncoding="UTF-8" />

So far all UTF-8 characters in the web interface show fine and the pages are served correctly with:

Content-Type: text/html;charset=utf-8

Only the ICS has this Content-type: (without utf-8?)

Content-Type: text/html

It is a bug.

You will find the patch here: THIS PATCH APPLIES ON TW 5.3.59500 ONLY

stop Teamwork, make a backup of the existing file, then replace it on

[...]/WEB-INF/classes/com/twproject/agenda folder

restart Teamwork.

Let me know if this solves your issue.

Are you running in https or http?

In both cases check that tomcat configuration file server.xml has URIEncoding="UTF-8" in connector section (http or https depending you case)

just http; I'm using a proxy, but the calendar ics has the same headers and content when I go for the tomcat server directly (<host>:8080). I updated the original post and added config and content-type headers.
