Dukto icon

Multi-platform file transfer tool for LAN users

Allmyapps review

by Fred, on

If you have more than one computer at home, you probably already thought of connecting them all together on your local network to share many files and folders easily. But soon after this idea sprang to your mind, you realized that the last USB device that you had bought was still very useful, as the task seemed too great to overcome and the obstacles were countless. Still, there is a simpler and more practical solution to this problem: just store away your USB device and install without further delay the Dukto app.

No need to bother your geeky uncle Jack anymore with helping you distribute documents, files and folders between your different hardware! Simply install Dukto on all of your devices and the app will take care of everything for you. No more grueling hours spent trying to configure your local network and making somehow your various computers communicate together.
Once the software is installed, the name of each computer will automatically appear in the "buddies" section of the app.
For the folders and files that you want to send, you just need to drag and drop them directly to the icon of the recipient device and then the transfers shall be made in no time. You also have the option of sending a text message by typing it in the app itself or from the clipboard. To do this, click the icon of the computer in question then select "Send some text" or "Send text from clipboard". You can also send all your files through this menu.

If for any reason one of your devices does not appear among your "buddies" list, you can always try to send your data through this device IP address; click on "IP connection" then fill in your remote computer IP address in the "Destination" window. You do not know its IP address? The app has thought of everything, click on "Addresses" at the bottom of the screen to see it.

Dukto also allows you to specify in the "Settings" where you want to receive all your files automatically. You can even choose the color of the Metro style UI in your application with its color chart.

Finally, in the "recent" section, you are able to access the latest data received with the sender's name as well as the date and time of receipt.
Designed primarily for non-experienced users, Dukto will surprise you with its ease of use and even more with its efficiency. Store away your USB devices and other external hard drives, your transfers will now run via Dukto in the blink of an eye whatever the operating system and without the need of any configuration of your network.


Dukto is an easy file transfer tool designed for LAN use. Dukto is really great 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.
