    Both machines are on your home network right?

    Just share the folder the documents are in that you need to move.
    Then you can move them from Finder.

    System Preferences - Sharing - File sharing

    Turn it off when you're going to be on other shared networks or password protect it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
