Hello,

I realize that putting windows in the title is opening me up to getting flamed, however, due to certain circumstances there is one lone windows machine in my house and it happens to be my wifes.

I was wondering what I could do to allow her to remotely control our itunes server parked in the basement. I just recently purcahsed nettunes for my laptop and was hoping for a remote client for my wifes machine when I have my laptop with me.

If there isn't one already, would it be possible to discuss the protocol you send to your server so I could write one?

Cheers
James.

Hi, James.

No flaming here! It's just not something that we plan to do and -- trust me -- there's no practical way to do something with the protocol, which is highly Mac and Cocoa specific. You'd end up having to re-implement far, far too much: it'd be cheaper to just get a Mac mini. :)

Thank you. Too bad. I guess I will just have to guilt the wife into buying a new machine :)

Cheers
James.

Feel free to use us as an excuse, James: we'll be happy to take the heat. :)
