[horde] Free/Busy Information

The problem with the localhost thing isn't necessarily access to the LDAP
server, but more that horde has to access a page on its own server, and does
so through PHP's remote file opening capabilities. It resolves the URL you
enter, and retrieves the FB information through your webserver, which has to
be reachable for horde... try telnetting to port 80 on your domainname from
the commandline of the server you run horde on. Type GET if you get a
connection. If that works, this isn't the solution you're looking for.

Ups, I forgot to say that the ldap directory
for the adressbook is on another machine  (so: no loacalhost scenario).
