Linux Mandrake to Win XP Pro over Firewire

Hello,

I would like to be able to transfer files between a Linux machine and an XP machine over firewire (one machine is behind and the other is infront of a firewall).
XP recognises the Firewire connection when I plug the machines in, however I am not sure how to get the Linux end working.

Some guidelines on getting this to work would be very useful.

Thanks for reading my post and considering your reply.

First you need to open a port on the F/W to get between to the 2 machines
NExt you need to install and configure SAMBA
