Since BTC remittance can be made to an IP as well as a hash address, how do I transfer coins between my own machines/wallets between the same public IP? Do I use the GUI with hash and not IP, or do I cut & paste some lines between the plaintext wallet files? I read somewhere that if the wallet file is compromised the BTC contained can be stolen. So how do I "steal" my own coins?

Moving between wallets: use bitcoin address instead of ip
Not sure how to "steal" by editing wallet.dat.

if i'd have access to your wallet.dat, i'd dump the key pairs (1)
then hashed the pub keys to get addresses (2)
check which address shows a balance that could be send away (3)
... not know how yet, but added that keypair to my wallet.dat (4)
and spend from the new address. since i have the keys (5)

if i'd want to make sure that the wallet.dat i'm treating will not spend before me
i'd remove the keypair from there (the one with the balance)
