Enable AirDrop on Lion

AirDrop unfortunately doesn’t work on all systems that Lion supports. ¬†However there is a way of getting limited support.

Just open up a shell and type the following:

defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser BrowseAllInterfaces 1

killall Finder

This will allow you to AirDrop to other systems that you have an Ethernet or WiFi connection to. ¬†While not as useful as the full AirDrop feature, this can still be a handy way to transfer files between systems when you’re on the same network.
