So here's what I'm doing and what my problem is.  On iTunes, under preferences, I go to the sharing tab and click share my library on my local network.  I then go to advanced > turn on home sharing. I enter my apple id and password and create home share. It says home sharing is now on and I click done. Now, the shared tab disappears and there is no shared library.  On my iPhone 4s, I go to settings > music > and enter the same apple id and password.  I then go to music > more and there is no shared library option.  I go back to preferences on iTunes and go to sharing tab. It says Status: On, no users connected.  How do I fix this? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes so I have the latest version.  I'm also on the same wifi connection on both my laptop and iphone.  I also turned my firewall off.

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1
