Dukto for Mac is a lightweight but incredibly powerful multi-platform file transfer and networking tool that strives to provide macOS users a streamlined way to share files over the LAN network. Instead of letting users struggle with the account credentials, permissions, protocols, clients, servers, and other numerous system quirks related to establishing stable and fast network connections between two Macs.

⚠ Note: This product is not developed anymore and might not function properly.

If you are looking for an alternative, we recommend you to download SHAREit for Mac.

It takes all this confusion out of the picture by simply allowing users to transfer files via LAN to other Macs by simply dragging and dropping files and folders into its active app window. That’s it! Simply set up this micro app on all Macs on your home or business LAN network and start easily sharing data between them with zero configurations or confusion.

To get Dukto for macOS up and running on your desktop or MacBook, all you need to do is to download and install a single application. Simply follow several simple on-screen instructions and the app will be ready for action. Upon startup, it will scan and analyze your local network in a specific way, detecting not only accessible Macs but also other active instances of the same app. Immediately after this, users are free to start sending files and even text messages to the detected Macs.

Data can be sent by dragging and dropping files or folders into the app and then clicking the target destination. To enable more versatile data transfer, the app supports targeting not only Macs with installed Dukto app, but also sending data to a specific IP address.

It is important to note that this Dukto does NOT require any of its users to be connected to the internet.  All of the data transfers are happening locally via LAN. Additionally, the app can seamlessly transfer data between all supported versions of macOS with no additional customization or tweaking needed to achieve this feat.

The list of useful features goes on – full transfer log, text/chat transfer, full Unicode support, fast transfer speeds, multi-files/folders transfer (batch transfer), automatic discovery of available clients, ability to open files directly from within the app, local IP address showcase, and more.

Originally built by the single developer Emanuele Colombo, this app received numerous updates until it reached its final R6 version in the spring of 2016. Since then it has remained stable, serving countless users with its incredible suite of tools.

Dukto for Mac is 100% FREE for both home and enterprise users, and it features translation to several international languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Polish).

Note: This software is no longer maintained. You can download it and use it if it works on your devices, but I can’t provide any updates and support anymore.
