So can you access the calendar from the server itself then? Try http://localhost:8008 
  in the browser to see if you get a login prompt. If this works, it's  
not listening on the real IP address. Although from your experience it  
looks like the server is silently ignoring your access attempts  

The file indeed says BindAddress can be left blank; nevertheless, try  
setting the BindAddress to the IP-address of the server. If you are  
not running a local DNS, the IP address is indeed your best bet for a  

Also check the usual suspects: firewall configuration, editing the  
correct caldavd plist, using the correct port numbers, etc. The logs  
are not showing any signs of the service failing.

Also try the following command in the Terminal (output will be  
different if you're not using the standard ports or are using a single  
core machine):

$ netstat -an | grep 80
tcp4       0      0         *.*                     
tcp4       0      0         *.*                     
tcp4       0      0         *.*                     
tcp4       0      0         *.*                     
tcp4       0      0  <ip-address>.8443    *.*                    LISTEN
tcp4       0      0  <ip-address>.8008    *.*                    LISTEN

A *.8008 / *.8443 is also OK. Bottom line is; the server should be  
listening on the IP address of your server on ports 8008 (http) and  
8443 (https), which then redirect to load-balancing threads on the  
localhost interface, one per CPU core. If the last two lines are also  
localhost, the server is not listening on the real IP address.

No disk/drive/volume configuration should be necessary (in fact,  
fstab.* is long since obsolete on OS X :-)
