    Re: Rendez Vous - What is it and how to use

    Quite simple. It's one of those things that "just works" as long as you and your roomie are on the same subnet.

    Both of you, go into preferences, and on the sharing tab, turn on both "look for shared musci" and "share my music". Choose if you want to share specific playlists, or your whole library.

    Set up a password, if you want that level of security, and give your share a name... like "maise's tunes".

    Close your preferences.

    When you've both done this, your roomie should see "Maise's tunes" as a source list in the left-hand-side pane of iTunes. Likewise, you'll see your roommate's music listed under whatever he or she called his or her shared files.

    Et voila. Enjoy.

    Please note, you can't (really) download songs from each other, but you can basically "stream" the files residing on their machine, through your own.

    Happy rendezvousing.
