    The spec for Firewire is a maximum of 4.5m (about 14 ft.) cables. The options are to

    1) use two cables and a device with two or more ports in the middle, or
    2) Get two POF (plastic optical fiber) converters, and a POF cable.

    For 6 meters, choose option 1. Option 2 is expensive, but can run something like 200 meters, maybe more.
