Recently I wrote this tutorial on how to enable the feature of sharing your music collection in iTunes 4.0.1 again… which Apple disabled with the latest update. The funny part is it can use freeware made by Apple itself! The tutorial shows you how to set up a proxy for the iTunes server and makes iTunes think the stream is coming from a local area network.

Have fun, but don’t steal music!

How do I connect to the shared iTunes via a remote computer? - one that is not on the network I mean.

Shall the stealing commence!

Honsetly guys, stop doing this! Do you really want Apple to be sued and be forced to stop sharing altogether?
