I guess it depends on how much footage but I’ve been using Bittorrent Sync (or Resilio Sync as it’s now called).
Set up a folder on both computers and link using Resilio. Files copied onto one computer then copy across to the second. Once all the footage is copied across any changes made to the project folders copy across instantaneously.
We used the same system last week in Paris allowing two editors to work on the same projects. We got the footage on the PC asap, then let it sync across. One person could then do the offline edit, save the project file and the second person could do the final edit.
Worked really well and avoided the need for external hard drives etc.
If you’ve not heard of Bittorrent sync then I made this video last year demonstrating how it works:
