Connecting two Macs using Thunderbolt | Macworld

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/30

TL;DR: Connecting to Macs over Thunderbolt is easy and has transfer speeds way faster than other network connections.

Summary of steps from [WayBackConnecting two Macs using Thunderbolt | Macworld

  • Connect the Thunderbolt cable between two Macs
  • In the Network Preferences find the self-assigned IP address on either side
  • In that side, ensure you have File Sharing enabled
  • On the other side, open a Finder, press Command-K, then the IP-address you noted and logon
  • Transfer files

This also increases LAN sync speeds of DropBox, Google Drive and others.

Note the connection by default using SMB
