When cables are connected and the old mac is rebooted as target disc the new mac cannot see the old mac to start migration. I have update all software. (old mac 10.6.8 and new mac is 10.7) any ideas. The new mac asks: 'make sure both computers are connected to the same network'

iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7)
