Use a G5 as headless port/drive extender and MIDI server
Authored by: sablefish on Jul 09, '09 02:03:44PM

from actual, real-world experience, IP-over-Firewire transfers are just as fast as a firewire tethered, external hard drive. i had great results networking computers for video editing: use one mac just for capture, and transfer the bins to the edit computer with IP-over-firewire.

Maybe my gigabit network sucks or something, but i find firewire to be significantly faster than gigE.
