Recently my friend running Windows XP wanted to give me some files, he has a 1394 connection or otherwise known as firewire connection. Problem is that we cannot do anything. I have turned on file sharing and windows sharing, but I cannot see him, and his 1394 reconizes that something is there, but it cannot do anything. To make matters worse, I was able to successfully do it one time before and now I cannot do it. How do I solve these problems:
- Me, the Mac OS 10.4.2 user being able to reconize and add files to Windows XP.
- My friend, the Windows XP user being able to recognize and add files to Mac.
Also I was able to leech off of his internet connection via firewire, but I cannot receive files. Target Disk Mode does not help the situation either, or as far as I can tell. Both firewalls are off also.

Not sure about the Windows half, but there are instructions for IP over FireWire are in Mac Help. You might have to specify an IP address manually.
