    I need to transfer some large files from one mac to the other. (MBPS)

    Both of my macs need to be using the internet to be downloading and uploading at the same time..

    I know it will use the firewire connection if I turn off one of the airports, but my question is, is their a way to connect using firewire and not going through the network that is what it seems to do when i try to connect with a firewire.

    Thanks in advanced,
