When I use the client to display the iTunes window from the server, and then use other applications on the server (browser etc.), the contents of those windows show up on the client screen, instead of the iTunes window. In other words, it looks sort of like a mirror of the server's screen, instead of sticking with the iTunes display. How to fix? Thanks.

You can't fix this, David: we need to be able to "see" the iTunes window, which means it has to be on top. If you disconnect and reconnect netTunes, we'll move iTunes to the top again, though.

That's a little disappointing -- it means the server needs to be fairly dedicated to just being a server in order for the software to work as advertised. I wish this had been made clear on your site.
Otherwise it's a fine product so far.

David: we try to make it clear in the documentation, and we have a fully enabled demo period... I don't know what more I really could have done! There's just no way to get the iTunes "image" without being able to "see" it.

The direct controls (which are remoted) should still work, as should all the scripting support and the like: it's just the actual iTunes window that has to be on top to be seen and remoted to the client.
