    Itunes Homesharing can't get through firewall


    I cannot figure out how to authorize my itunes from my mac in the other room to come through the firewall. If I turn the firewall off it works, but I tried adding two new ports and that didn't work. The diagnostic program is useless. Any help is very appreciated!

    I went into the firewall settings and it appears that the program is authorized and there are TCP and UDP ports open. I added TCP and UDP ports with the numbers that apple said to use, and I'm enabling things all over the place, to no avail. What's missing?
