What is Lanshark?
Lanshark is a free filesharing tool for local area networks. Lanshark allows you to share files with other users in the same network more efficiently. It automatically detects other lanshark users in the same Network and lets you browse trough their shares. Lanshark has a very fast search function that allows you to search through all the shares in the whole network in just a few seconds!

It works with both Linux and Microsoft Windows System.
  • Type the below code in terminal and hit enter
  • Terminal Command
      • wget
      • unzip
      • cd lanshark-master
      • python build
      • sudo python install
      •  After installation you can open it from Applications->Internet->Lanshark.
      • Click on 'share path' to select location to share on LAN.
      • To view your share file click on Browser tab.
      • From tab Lanshark ->Open Web Interface you can find you address over lan. By using this address you can browse your file from any system by using a web Browser.

      Here my address is and shared files at that address. So to access my file from other Systems I have to type this address in web browser at that system. You  can also change it from Advanced tab.
