There is no master nor slave in Firewire, all are peers, and all have
(essentially) the same socket. If the cable fits, it works. Witness
the difference between a hardware standard driven by Apple (Firewire)
and one from Intel/Microsoft (USB).
You might also try fwe(4) if your other OS's are capable of doing IP
Thanks, both run FreeBSD and I was thinking of trying fwe. I just don't
know enough to feel certain I wouldn't short circuit and fry both
devices if I connected them with a standard cable.
