i need to make a program that would basically monitor the raw data from the firewire port on my pc, encode it to ethernet protocol, and send to mac. and on the mac create a virtual firewire mounting point and interpret data back to firewire, i would imagine this would be possible.
i only need this to run the fw400 so the cat5 would have 2 "pins" extra, i don't see how this would be impossible with an interpreter on both ends
PC is 2.53 c2duo 4gbram running Linux mint and windows 7
Mac is Imac intel 2.4 4gbram running OsX 10.6 snolepard
the device is a 003rack audio interface from digidesign
im not sure if this is even possible but what programming language would be best for this and where would i find any refrence of similar code? thanks
