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 its 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:

You can find the source code on the project page http://sourceforge.net/projects/dukto/ at SourceForge.net. Dukto has also been tested and certified by Softpedia, Brothersoft and GearDownload.

  • a SNAP package….. oh yes, please!!

    To make this great tool universal between all Linux distros. I’m surprised there is no snap OR flatpak for Dukto yet…

  • Advantageously replaces a Bluetooth dongle for file transfer! Maybe one day Dukto will be able to stream!

  • App molto utile… però potrebbe migliorare… ad esempio potrebbero essere aggiunte le notifiche dei messaggi scambiati tra i dispositivi… anche se l’app è chiusa… poi si potrebbero aggiungere delle schermate per ogni dispositivo dove sono visualizzati i file e i messaggi scambiati… poi si potrebbe aggiungere la modifica del nome dei dispositivi connessi alla rete… e non che compaia il codice del modello…

  • How do I compile it?
    I use Manjaro, which uses pacman as a package manager. I can’t find dukto in their repositories.
    Will you add it or release some instructions how to compile it?
