ton stands for Transfer Over Network. It is a zero-configuration local-network file transfer tool for when you have two computers on the same network and want to transfer a file, or group of files, from one to the other.
ton push filename on the sending system,
which will show you a randomly-generated passphrase. Then run
ton pull on the receiving system and enter that passphrase.
The two machines find each other on the network, securely authenticate with
each other and transfer the file.
More information is available in the README on ton's GitHub repository.
Instructions to download the sources and build
