    How do i connect my macbook pro to a macbook to transfer some files? I tried connecting via ethernet cable and restarted my macbook pro and it is still not visible or connecting to each other. I have my computer allowing connections through the settings... Any advice?

    you must turn on File Sharing in System Preferences->Networking.

    that should get you going.

    Do you need a cross over cable for this, or will a standard ethernet cable work? You could also transfer the files with bluetooth.
