Hamachi is a very easy to use 0-config VPN application. Even if you don't want to by-pass your work location's (or school's) firewall by using remote administration, share your iTunes library with your friends and family.

Although Hamachi for OS X is still terminal based, try the unofficial HamachiX with a gui front end. (HamachiX works for me with friends using hamachi on XP.)
  • Install Hamachi and create a new network. A simple name and password.
  • Enable sharing in iTunes Posted Image
  • Have your friend install Hamachi and log on to the network you created.
  • You will have to restart you iTunes on your pc after they join your 'network'.
  • Just like on a regular network, both ends need to have iTunes 'open'.
  • Share your music.

  • Linux users use banshee with the 'daap' plugin to share with iTunes.
  • To download your friend's (or whatever) library use ourTunes.
