10.3: Add IP over FireWire networking
Authored by: iwiring on Oct 30, '03 08:17:07PM

While FirewireIP can be as fast as Gigabit Ethernet oprating normally, doing things like jumbo packets on GigE is much faster if you have switches that support it. Where FirewireIP is great is offering another or an out-of-band network segment that can be used specifically to support filesharing, database syncronization and replication, and heartbeat and communications between machines operating in a cluster.
