    i was wondering what is the best way to connect 2 or more Macs together to share files and sync with each other? i know you can using smb, but is that the best way? that's how i connect my Mac and my PC, but i was wondering if there's a better way when connecting 2 Macs.

    Thanks in advance

    Between the macs, you can use Apple File Protocol. You can turn in on in the System preferences, and then connect to other macs that have it on by going into your Network directory.

    The easiest way with a PC is to turn on SMB on the PC and then connect to it from the Mac.

    I swear by Synchronize! Pro X although Synchronize! X Plus costs less. You can find both here.
