Yes, I do have an ethernet network, and file sharing. Just seems to be a few steps involved, to quickly transfer a file between two boxes. So I was looking at this firewire drive of mine, and it seemed like this would be a way to have a drop box between the two boxes (photos, one box does the scanning, "a slow process" while the other box can be busy at the photoshop) And at the same time I could stiffen up the firewall, by not allowing things like file sharing or the sorts... <br><br>I'm sure there are also other ways to do this, open to suggestions, thanks<br><br>-----<br>Folding for Fun teammacosx dot org
