Do you have Bluetooth on both machines? Try using it to transfer the files. I use it here all the time; all my machines (granted, Macs all) are all within Bluetooth's 30 ft range limit.

IIRC, each machine's Bluetooth preferences have to be set so that the machine is "discoverable." Once set, I go to the little Bluetooth icon up in the menu bar and select "Send file..." Next I pick the file/s (command click multiple files to send several at once) from the Get File dialog box that comes up, then in the next dialog that comes up I pick the machine I want to receive. Click Send, then turn to the receiving machine and click Accept in the box that pops up there. The file(s) or folder(s) (yes, you can select an entire folder to send) will land in your Documents folder.
