Attention Mac OS 10.8 Users!

The previous popup problem has been solved in this new version. Please install the new Popup if you recently upgrade to Mountain Lion.


Pharos Popup is not currently compatible with the Fast User Switching feature of Mac OS X. Always disable Fast User Switching when installing it.

If the software firewall (ipfw) on the computer is active, the following ports must be opened for TCP traffic for Popup to work:

  • 515
  • 28203

The firewall in Mac OS X is disabled by default. If it has not been manually activated, these ports will already be open.
