NitroShare – Cross-platform tool for sharing files across a local network
A network file-sharing application that makes sending a file to another machine on the local network as easy as dragging-and-dropping.
NitroShare is designed to be hassle-free in every aspect. Just install the application on any machine running Ubuntu or Windows and you're all set. Each machine should discover all of the other machines on the local network. The application integrates with the operating system, using application indicators on Ubuntu and the system tray on Windows.
NitroShare offers a number of other features, including:
dynamic file compress during transfer to decrease transfer time and bandwidth
CRC checksum generation to ensure file integrity during transfer
full compatibility with clients running on other operating systems
a helpful configuration wizard to guide you through setting up the application on your machines
