Would this allow someone to download the music from that website as well?

Great, but doesn't work entirely in Tiger.

Why:

It doesn't always start the server after a Tiger restart. I did in Panther.

Request:
A Widget that shows whos listening and what they are listening to. That way I would not have to open AccesTunes to see it. And if that is not possible then at least show the name of the dude to which my library is being streamed to.

What do you mean? The 'Music' folder in my Home directory is actually a symlink to /Volumes/Music/ and accessTunes works great for me!!!

That said, you might not have a link from your 'Music' folder in you Home directory to your other harddrive that contains all of your music, so accessTunes is looking for ~/Music/ and finding nothing. Alternatively, if you've created a Mac OS alias called 'Music' in your Home directory, accessTunes (and iTunes) might not understand where to look either. I tried creating an alias to my other harddrive and iTunes didn't like it, but when I created a Unix symlink to my music folder, everything is working great. I did the same thing with my Users folder (to /Volumes/Users) and all is good.

Not much point in this as there are free alternatives to it.

Mt-daapd and daapd.
Both compile without problems and as I said are free.
And it really isn't that hard to set up at all.

This product looks very similar to MP3 Sushi, only that also has radio and resampling options.

Ok, did a port forwarding as instructed in the Read Me file, and now it works superb! Awsome! Wonder when Apple will stop it from working with a new iTunes revision?

The web-address it makes is for my router and has nothing to do with my external ip. Will it work anyway?
