Default Mbox inserts with Outboard Compressor?

Can anyone tell me how to set up the inserts on my Mbox?

I have an external Behringer Composer compressor and would like to connect up the Mbox. Does the compressor then "compress" anything i hear coming out of the mbox or does it only compress recorded files going in?

Also im not exactly sure of the connections from the Mbox to the compressor? - i have 2 x insert cables (Y leads) can anyone help a newbie?

Also whats the best and simplest way to connect a Mac & Pc together so i can "fly" files across from Mac>PC then PC>Mac? I currently have a network with just a crossover cable so my Mac can share a Net connection, do i need anything else to transfer files back and forth?? and is it easy to set up?

buckaroo,
Your "Y cable" goes to the insert jack of the Mbox. The plug on it of course is TRS.
The two split ends are your compressors input and output. Quite simple really..
And ONLY the input signals are effected..between the microphone pre amp and the AD converter.
You can not use the Mbox inserts for playback.

If the two computers are already networked, than allowing file sharing is all you need..I think.
Let some of the geekier users confirm that..
good luck,
