Using iMac 2011 as media server
So far, so good. Got the server set up and my iTunes content migrated. Tested playback - IT WORKS! My MacBook Pro streams the music files hosted on my iMac with no lag.
The question I have is this: I obviously do not want to open this media server to the Internet at large. I DO, however, wish to make it available to other people in my household. Any advice on doing this?
Here's what I've done so far:
iMac Intel (Rev H, 27"), 1TB HDD, 16GB RAM, 10.8.4

Take a look at Plex, I use it for my setup at home and it works a treat, my iMac is my server and can stream all my content to iOS, android, Apple TV, roku and other computers either on my LAN or over the net.
