I have the following setup and am attempting the use Migration Assistant over FireWire:
- Source machine: Early 2009 24-inch iMac running OS X 10.9
- Destination machine: Latest MacBook Pro Retina running OS X 10.9
- Connection: FireWire 800 - Thunderbolt Adapter
But on both ends of the process Migration Assistant gets stuck "looking for other machines".
I also have made FireWire networking active on the source machine (I assume it comes active on the new destination machine), and turned off LittleSnitch, which I normally have running.
What am I missing? Are there other settings somewhere (unmentioned anywhere in Apple's documentation) that I need to check? I've also tried using a direct Ethernet connection to connect my machines, but have a different set of issues there.
