Qui veut tester cette béta en allant la télécharger sur le site d’Apple ?

IP entre deux machines via le port FireWire à 400 mégas par seconde, ça ne vous tente pas ?

All Apple computers sold today include one or more FireWire ports.
Because FireWire can transfer data at up to 400 megabits/second, it is suitable for networking and clustering solutions, as well as temporary connections to the internet using Internet Sharing.

Now the IP over FireWire Preview Release adds support for using the Internet Protocol - commonly known as TCP/IP - over FireWire. With this software installed, Macintosh computers and other devices can use existing IP protocols and services over FireWire, including AFP, HTTP, FTP, SSH, etc. In all cases, Rendezvous can be used if desired for configuration, name resolution, and discovery.

The preview release adds a new Kernel Extension that hooks into the existing network services architecture. Using the existing Network Preferences Pane, users can add FireWire as their IP network node to connect and communicate between two machines.

Now developers interested in using the Internet Protocol (IP) over FireWire may download the IP over FireWire Preview Release from the ADC Member Site.
