    Is it possible to use Fetch to transfer files between two Macs? I have a new iMac which has no removable media drive (only a CD drive) and an old 6500 which has no ethernet port and I'm at a loss as to how to get my old files into my new computer. Some one mentioned Fetch, but I'm not sure what I'd need to set up to do this.

    That is what I am using Fetch for -- to transfer from old PowerPC to an iMac. I upload files from old mac to a folder in my website and then download from there to iMac. The only problem should be security: a hacker might peer at my files while they are on my site so i don't leave them there more than I have to.
    It should work flawlessly but I am having probs with Fetch (see separate posting.)

    I was hoping I could do it in one step - from Mac to Mac - rather than two steps - Mac to web server then webserver to Mac. I can't believe no one's come up with an utility for this. I'm using AIM's file transfer capabilities now, but it's taking me all day and I'm not 1/4 done.

    You could use Fetch and a Mac FTP server (such as NetPresenz or Rumpus) but you'd need a network connection between the two Macs. And if you had a network connection you could just use file sharing.
