    from the 10.2.4 Server KB article:

    "Networking
    Mac OS X Server version 10.2.4 supports jumbo Ethernet frames (MTU up to 9 KB) on Xserve when used with supported PCI gigabit Ethernet cards.
    Support for IP over FireWire. This enhancement enables Mac OS X Server to utilize high speed, low latency interconnects for clustering and IP failover solutions over FireWire. You no longer need to use ports on your gigabit Ethernet switch in order to use IP failover. "

    Now I wonder how we activate it in the client version of OSX?

    Apple released a beta version of IP over Firewire for the client version a couple months ago, but then pulled it publicly. It is still available at ADC - even free memberships have access to it!

    I know. 10.2.4 Server has the non-beta version. I'm wondering how to get that. The beta has been up for ages.
