Can I use this as a networking cable, like an ethernet cable?

When Wi-Fi is being too slow, I currently use an ethernet cable to connect my MacBook Pro to my mac mini server, running the Minecraft server software. Can I use this Thunderbolt cable instead of the ethernet cable I have been using, for an even faster connection?

  • Yes, you can if the OS X version is 10.9 (Mavericks) or 10.10 (Yosemite). Use the search terms "IP over Thunderbolt" for more information.
