NitroShare is a simple tool for sharing files over a local network. You can simply drag-and-drop files on to the share box or use the indicator menu to send files.
NitroShare has been updated to version 1.5 with many new features:
- Create more than one ShareBox, providing a direct link to any other machine on your network. These ShareBoxes can be moved and positioned anywhere on your desktop.
- A wizard that will guide you through the configuration process.
- The underlying protocol used for broadcast discovery and file transfer has changed quite a bit, increasing the reliability of transfers and allowing progress of the transfer to be displayed.
Install NitroShare in Ubuntu 12.04 by running following commands:
