Papaya is a Web server dedicated to sharing your files with others. Sharing files is now incredibly quick and easy! It's a matter of dragging files to Papaya's dock icon, or the library list. The Web address for downloading the file is copied automatically, ready for pasting into an e-mail or instant message.

Papaya acts as a Web server, sharing files through the HTTP protocol. This means that anyone with a Web browser can download your files-no special software is needed on the receiving end.

I confirmed port 8080 is open, but noone can connect. What else is needed?? A help file would help, cuz open 8080 alone is not enough...

Hmm... Been a long time since this app was update.
Is it still bug-free after 8 months? I wonder.

Works great and it's easy to use. If it cost $10 I'd buy it on the spot...but $27 is a bit pricey for this program.

Love this app! Perfect way to share files without having to connect to an FTP server or upload anywhere. Files are always maintained locally and their download activity can be monitored. Love it :)

No help files for this app, and nothing on the developer website. Setup assistant tells me I need ports 8080 open, and then a warning comes up that port 6900 is not open. Which one is it?

This (version 1.0.3) update created a small (cosmetic) problem for me. On Safari the icons are not displayed.

This application is very easy to use. Simplicity is its sole strength though. It needs more features. The Web Page that it creates is completely bare-bones-- e.g. Items cannot be sorted. There is no search function for those downloading a file. There is no way to mod' the page, etc.

While it works as advertised, it is seriously over-priced. If sufficiently improved, perhaps with the addition of logging file transfers, adding two-way file transfers, etc. I will purchase it.

To me it is very much a "work-in-progress"

Thanks Papaya you did what I was searching for... and in a simple way.
I tested v.1 and was not able to configure the ports...this new version did it for me.
I love to be on a Mac only for such apps.
Give it a try...

You say: "Can I do something to fix it?"

I think that all you need to do is use the "port forwarding" option with you router; though turning on "DMZ" may be required too.

Hi, I want to try this out however I can't seem to configure my Verizon FIOS router to work with this. I need to know what I have to change:port forwarding, DMZ etc.

thanks

rosenkrieger had trouble on 12 Apr 2008
Just tried this out and I am almost ready to purchase a license.

I configured my ports manually, because Papaya couldn't do it for me ( no biggie ). So I passed the server status test.

BUT for some reason it only takes my local IP adress, even if I set it to take my external IP adress. So I am unable to share to a chat friend of mine.

Is this a bug? Can I do something to fix it?

This seems like a REALLY REALLY superb quick share app ( and Apple is gonna hate you for making sharing iTunes music such an easy task hehe )
