Use iTunes 9's Home Sharing over the Internet
Authored by: antifuchs on Oct 07, '09 01:40:27PM
The server setup is pretty easy; hardest part is generating the certificates (and easy-ca takes good care of that for me). If you're interested, check the configuration file that I use: http://boinkor.net/openvpn/vpn.boinkor.net.conf - you just supply the keys and the server to run the thing on.

Come to think of it, a server machine would be the most expensive thing if you don't have one running already; I think you can set up your iTunes library host computer to be the openvpn tunnel endpoint; this way you'd just have to figure out any port forwarding measures for the openvpn protocol port (I use 443/tcp, as that's the one most firewalls will let through unchallenged) if that computer is in a NAT network setup.
