Hi,

I have two laptops with firewire ports, & I want to transfer large data from one laptop to another.

How can I use the firewire cable to do this!! Is there any configuration needed for this?

Thanks.

  Not sure if you are using WinXP on both but you should be able to plug the firewire in
  the back of each computer and it will autodetect the connection and it should so up in
  your network connections.  Here's the Microsoft link on it http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;310433

  Here is how to setup the direct cable connection in WinXP http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;305621

  Good Luck.
