Ask Max: Sending stuff between two iMacs - no internet

Asked on 02/14/2007:

Greetings - data transfer between (2) G3 233mhz iMacs. Question: how to accomplish this without the Internet? Transferring files from one to the other. Through a USB hub? Appletalk? Ethernet through a router?


Without FireWire on your computer, the next best method for file transfers is over ethernet. You do not need a hub, router, or switch however. You can use a ™Cross-over™ ethernet cable. This is one that will work: Crossover 25ft Cable for iMacThen you just need to turn on AppleTalk over ethernet on both computers.
