I have two machines located next to each other in my home office that I want to connect using Firewire. I have been told this is a simple way to share files and drive space between the two machines.
One machine is a Windows Vista Ultimate machine with Norton Internet Security 2007 loaded. The other machine is a Windows XP Professional machine, also with Norton Internet Security 2007 loaded. Both machines access the net via RJ-45/Cat 5e cable to a router and then my ISP (Verizon FIOS).
I have tried a few combinations the past few nights and can not get the two machines to share (or recognize) anything.
Is there a simple, step by step guide for setting up this "simple" Firewire connection? I am good at building hardware, but not very experienced at setting up networks.
