Try out our new RRULE tool for creating RRULE compatible strings.

In this example, the client requests the server to return free busy information on the calendar collection /bernard/work/, between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. EST (2:00 P.M. and 10:00 P.M. UTC) on the January 4, 2006. The server responds, indicating two busy time intervals of one hour, one of which is tentative.

See Appendix B for the calendar data being targeted by this example.
