Dukto R6

Dukto is one of my long-lived software project, it’s now at the 6th release, with many improvements over the previous versions. One of the main changes of this release is the new user interface inspired to the Metro style UI developed by Microsoft for the new releases of Windows Phone, Windows, Xbox and all the other Microsoft products. Since I like the simplicity, the essentiality of this kind of UI, I’ve decided to make a new Dukto interface for all the supported platforms.

If you don’t know Dukto, I can tell you that it’s an easy file transfer tool designed for LAN use. I use it in my everyday work to transfer files from one PC (or other device) to another, without worrying about users, permissions, operating systems, protocols, clients, servers and so on… Just start Dukto on the two PCs and transfer files and folders by dragging onto it’s window. That’s all.

Dukto main features are:

  • Simple user interface
  • No server or internet connection needed
  • Zero configuration
  • Clients auto-discovery
  • High speed file transfer
  • Multi-OS native support
  • Portable version available
  • Multi files and folders transfer
  • Transfers log
  • Send and receive text snippets (eg. useful for sending URLs)
  • Open received files directly from the application
  • Windows 7 taskbar integration with progress and transfer indicator
  • Show your IP addresses on the IP connection page
  • Full Unicode support
  • Metro style UI
  • Free and open source

Dukto is a free open source project, licensed under GPL. Official releases are made by me for the folliwing platforms:

  • Windows (XP or later)
  • OS X (10.6.x or later)
  • Linux (packaged for Ubuntu and Fedora)
  • Symbian (for Nokia touch phones)

Also there are porting made by other developers, like the following:

  • @Elie thanks for your feedback! Actually Dukto can’t work on WP8 due to API limitations, I’m now evaluating WP8.1 that adds many new API and possibilities for developers.

  • Hi. I need to send files from an old desktop PC (win xp sp3) to a notebook pc (win 7), both are connected to a router (xp wired, win7 wireless). Whenever I try to send text or files I keep getting “error code 7″. Everything works fine when I send text and files from the notebook to the desktop PC (via IP address or clicking on the buddies list). How can I solve this? Thanks.

  • @anoop I’m working on it… it will take some time because I have to rewrite it completely.

  • @Roberto try disabling firewalling software (even Windows Firewall) on both PCs.

  • I’ve been using Dukto for a couple years on Linux, BlackBerry PlayBook, and Windows. It’s always worked perfectly and trouble free. I would love to be able to use Dukto on my BlackBerry Q10. The company may be in trouble, but this phone rocks! I would be very thankful for a BB10 version. Thanks developer.

  • Wonderful tool – I’ve been looking for a wifi transfer app, pc to pc, without using microshaft’s shgaring rubbish or remote desktop virus stuff.

    Question – is there any way to make it faster?

    Currently on 144 bps wifi it’s using about 10%of it. I accept that faster means slower web browsing, but someitme I just want max speed trasnfer, web browsing can wait.

  • @Casey Dukto actually tries to work as fast as possible. It is limited only by disk access, CPU and real network available bandwidth (for wifi you must consider also radio interference!).
