Currently Being ModeratedAug 18, 2010 10:30 PM (in response to Milky Rock)I've already looked over the iTunes 9 troubleshoot (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2972) and tried opening the appropriate port. The only part that concerns me is that the document states that I need the "same iTunes or App Store account." But I've never bought anything off either these stores; I don't have an iTunes store account, and neither do I particularly want one. Could this be the problem? I hope not, having to turn over credit card info just to stream music across my network would be pretty bogus.Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 19, 2010 8:03 PM (in response to Milky Rock)Hello,
iTunes 9 contains a feature called Home Sharing that would probably help you accomplish what you are looking to achieve. You can see how to set it up and read a bit more about its features here http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3819. I cannot say for sure, but it is possible that enabling this feature will also be the trick that gets your machines to share their libraries seamlessly again.
Best of luck.
