Send and Receive files via wifi / wireless lan using Dukto for Symbian phones

Leave a Comment

Sending and receiving files on symbian phones have been very easy since symbian phones supports wired transfer via USB, infra-Red (prehistoric) and USB-on-the-go connections , and Wireless via bluetooth (hello to "some" other expensive phones out there who can't event make this happen)  and wlan connection using some paid application.

Now its has become even more easier, thanks to Dukto!
Dukto is a simple application to send and receive files, folders or text snippets from any Windows, Macintosh and Linux PC or device in your local network thorugh a WiFi connection. Simply start the application and select what to transfer. It doesn't requires any installation on your PC or any Internet connection. Dukto is distributed free and open source. Web site: http://www.msec.it/dukto

This is an open source project initiated by Emanuele Colombo that lets you send and receive files to and fro from your PC and Symbian Phone.

Dukto runs on both pc (windows, mac and linux) and symbian phones (s60 v5, s60 v3, S^3). Once running, dukto clients lists all devices on the network that are also running dukto clients. This devices can now share files by just selecting the send option on mobile phones or dragging files on desktop dukto client.

These devices can now send and receive files:
PC - Symbian Phone
Symbian Phone - PC
Symbian Phone - Another Symbian Phone.
