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:

  • @Ami I can’t because of certificates and signing problems…

  • Hi Emanuele, don’t worry about certificate problems on Symbian phones. Most Symbian users hacked their phones anyway.

    Symbian users who want to use dukto on their phones can download from this link:

  • Hello, I have an issue with the Linux version. I’m running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and installed the package for that distro from your repository. When dukto is open, the Linux machine is visible on my Blackberry and Android tablet, but both are not seen by the linux client. Sending from phone or tablet ends with an error message. Any Ideas?
    Another problem I have with the Blackberry Version: the destination folder is not changable and wrong written (“dwonloads”). Sending not possible. This Issue is reportet by several users in the App World. So right now I can only send files from my phone to my tablet. But this works at least great! :-)

  • @schmox for the Linux problem check your firewalling settings (distro firewall or iptables). About the problem with Blackberry, please contact the porting author.
