Would be even nicer with SSH-Tunnel-Integration.

either go to the developers site or RTFM - these are review sections, not adhoc support forums.

While I may agree with the comment that this is not an ad-hoc support type, MacUpdate's comment form does provide a "Troubleshooting" review type. If MacUpdate wanted to explicitly prevent those types of comments, they surely would have removed that option.

I agree with the second poster's remarks. It would seem to me to be common sense that contacting the developer is the the best first step when a user encounters a problem with a given software. However, when that does not avail a solution, subsequently posting here on MacUpdate with a request for help may be of use, other users may have a solution.

any way for this to automatically update the ip address for a given host in the event the host has a dynamic ip address?

regards,
rob

Try DynDNS, and use the dyndns-adress in Network Beacon. Works for me.

So, what's the trick to configure this to share iTunes over the Internet?

I'm working on an app that just does that (combines Rend Beacon and SSH tunneling)
