Ok, my CalendarServer-4.2/conf/caldavd-dev.plist (see (*********)) reads (with <IP of server> - my server IP):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <string><IP of server></string>

The thing is, that I am not able to synchronize any contact, whether on a mac-client (with the standard address book) with the server or with Android. On my Android I have CardDAV-Sync free. The calendar properties seem to be ok. I can synchronize my appointments. But with the address book, I don't know how to test, what to do...
