Zapr File Sharing, Your computer the Server

I found this very useful as it uses your computer to host the files or folders.
So the size limit is your hard drive, pretty cool imo.
You can make a hyperlink for anyone to download your files or folders.
Or you can use it with your e-mail for privacy.

How does it compare to HFS ~ Http File Server? I'm using the latter sometimes, and I'm quite happy with it. You can even upload to the server, secure folders with passwords, etc.

I don't know, yksyks.
I haven't tried that yet.
Is there a size limit?
The one thing about Zapr is that the limit is as big as your own hard drive or whatever drive you use.

Should be the same. I was just curious, if Zapr offers something special. But HFS does much more than I can ever use. It's one of the rare programs I have absolutely no complain about. Let's hope somebody will try Zapr and post the results!

If I've read the product info correctly, Zapr has integrated SSL right out of the box. You have to do a little hacking (i.e. install and configure OpenSSL) to use SSL with the HFS-HTTP File server.

BTW: Thank both you guys for the heads-up on these little servers. I can already think of several interesting things to do with them. :Thmbsup:
