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.

    […] Dukto for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS […]

  • Hi, I really like your app but I am facing a problem. I have a windows tablet, a macbook and an android phone. When I lunch your application it discovers all devices in the android and windows app, but it does not discover anything in the mac app, I need to type the IP every time. I tried with firewall off and I got the same results.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Jor Rog14 febbraio 2016

    Other devices without problems.

  • Is it possible to integrate Dukto on Android in the “share”-menu in the android file browser and gallery? Something like “share via Dukto” and than selecting the device I want to send the file.

    Dukto is an awsome piece of software by the way, congratulations and thank you for sharing it with us.

    […] Dukto is a multi-platform tool which means there are a ton of download sources for the app. Obviously, since we’re talking about the Windows version we’re only going to provide the location for the Windows install. However, if you have an Android, iOS, or alternate platform computer you can find the download links on the official developer’s website. […]

    can you kindly hint?

  • Hello
    I have a crazy solution for the blackberry isseu above

    The blackberry is one of the “latest” is Q20 blackberry classic with latest official update

    I’ve removed the Dukto installed from blackberry world
    I’ve installed the android apk

    … it works O_o ?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Ok it works, that matters, but maybe you have to review your android version ….

    Roberto31 maggio 2016
  • About what above … solution seemed to work

    progressbar seemed to work, it worked too

    it progresses on both the computer and on the blackberry

    Dukto on the blackberry ends up with the file said to be received and also the file name appears in the “recent” tabalso the “from” information is correct and also the file size…

    I have setup dukto to save the files on the sd card in the available “Download” directory

    but unfortunately in the sd card in the “Download” directory there is nothing

  • A beautifully made app that’s as simple to use as it’s well-designed. Makes file transfers a breeze between phones and PCs, without the hassle of a USB cable. I simple LOVE the elegant and simple interface!

    For those who have problems transferring files from the phone to the PC, try disabling the firewall, if there’s one in your PC. In my case, files could be transferred from my Symbian Nokia N8 to my Windows 7 PC, but not vice versa. I temporarily disabled the firewall in my PC, and the transfer worked just fine after that.

    Great work!

  • Forgot to add: the error message displayed in the above situation (my previous message) is as follows:

    Error Code 5

    Just thought that adding this extra information would make it easier to search for those facing a similar problem. :)

  • Hi,

    your debian repository key has expired

  • Wonderful software! The cross-platform feature is something you cannot get in other similar softwares.
    I have used to transfer, photos, songs and even huge movie files across, phones, laptops and desktops.
    While, it works without any problem in Ubuntu, there is one problem I face while sending files from Android phone. When I want to send files from an Android device, in the browser to choose files to send, there is no way to sort files by one’s choice, say by date. For example, I want to send three pics clicked in the phone, but to choose them, I have to scroll down a thousand files to find these! While many times I am able to do it, a novice user simply cannot do it, that too just by looking at the cryptic long file names of photo files. So, the feature that might help this problem might be:
    1. Have an option to sort the file by latest first
    2. In Android when one selects a few files in the Android photo gallery or a file browser, and choose “share”, it displays a list of apps which one wants to use to share the selected files. At present, it does not include Dukto. It would be nice if Dukto can be integrated with Android to display Dukto in the list of apps. Then one can just choose Dukto, and then choose the receiver of the files.
