Simple cross-platform file transfer #

Dukto is a zero-config, cross-platform (Linux, Mac, Symbian^3, Windows) file transfer app designed for LAN use. No installation is required, nor are any config files or registry changes made. Simply launch the app on both computers and drag-and-drop desired files/folders to begin transfer over UDP. Full support for Unicode characters in filenames, and transfers are logged. C++ source code by Emanuele Colombo generously released under the GPLv2.

Much easier than messing with SMB shares, logins, etc. Flawlessly transferred thousands of files (over 50GB worth) via Ethernet crossover cable from a Dell Vostro running Windows XP to a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.  Screenshot
