Use iTunes 9's Home Sharing over the Internet
Authored by: antifuchs on Oct 07, '09 08:46:07AM
I am doing something very similar with my laptop and my iMac at home, using Viscosity and an openvpn server. See http://mublag.boinkor.net/post/28132867/Getting-Home-Sharing-to-work-OpenVPN for setup instructions. When you're done, you can see and use all Bonjour services of the machines in your VPN, including iTunes home sharing.

This works better for me than Back to My Mac, actually. OpenVPN (and by extension, Viscosity) can tunnel through all sorts of nasty firewall setups, so now I can use the things in my home from everywhere.

Use iTunes 9's Home Sharing over the Internet
Authored by: macslut on Oct 07, '09 10:25:03AM

Any chance on getting some help with how to set up an openvpn server? This sounds pretty cool, but in the meantime, I'm just using MyTunesRSS which allows a web based interface to iTunes along with downloading songs. One possible advantage (aside from being really easy to set up), is that it doesn't require being logged into the iTunes account. You can however set up users with passwords within the app if you'd like.
