FireWire and the hp EliteBook

Recommended Posts

I have two (2) hp EliteBook 6930's see.

 

Being EliteBook 6930's, they both have FireWire ports, and FireWire is not yet on my List of Connectivity Technologies I Have Employed Between Portable Electronic Devices, so I bought a FireWire cable on Amazon but that's when I found out that I know bubkes about FireWire because the connectors were way wrong; like twice as wide as the ports on the laptop.

 

So, in order that you all may bask in the glory of having FireWire on y'all's Lists of Connectivity Technologies Sidewinder Has Employed Between Portable Electronic Devices, can any of you recommend exactly which FireWire cable I should buy to link my two hp laptops and watch the files fly at whatever impressive speeds FireWire accomplishes?

 

(also is there a spec for encapsulating TCP/IP in FireWire?  It might be cool to have another method of telnetting in...)

I've never heard of any network protocol stack that will operate on the FireWire (IEEE-1394) connection protocol. I know Apple at one time had the ability to connect one Mac to another Mac for mounting the storage devices. Usually Firewire was for transferring files from either external storage or capturing video from a camera.
