Ok so. Pretty simple question.

They have IP over firewire networks right? where one computer goes through another to get to the internet.

Well could I possibly have both computers on a Ethernet connection and then plug in the firewire cable just for computer to computer transfer??

I would think so but Im just making sure there wouldnt be any kinda of conflicting network addresses.

Just wantto know before I go lay down 40bucks on a damn cable lol.
