Ok, if you were to copy v. large files between two Mac's across the Internet, which one would you vote for, if performance was the number one factor?

If you can't copy directly between them, then Dropbox would be my 2nd choice.

Using RD?

(edit: I meant, your first choice meant using RD to connect?)

FTP will be fastest by far out of the options you mentioned, and of course already comes with OS X so no fiddly setup or installations.

Thanks for the votes, I guess I have a couple of options to try out.

Was hoping the Gotomypc one would be more feasible, but I guess I can understand why people chose what they did. :)
