    i enjoy sharing my music from itunes to other users, but i really wish i could put a cap on how many users are allowed or how long they can be connected AND see who is on...i don't like anonymity...it's just not my thing.

    do any of you think that this feature would be nice to have?

    I have been looking for the same thing and have not found it. You can open a terminal window and type

    lsof -i | grep -i itunes

    here is the output from my machine:
    It says that *:3689 (my own machine) is listening to that port, if other users are connected to your machine, their hostnames/ip addresses will show up.

    What I really want to see is what songs they are listening too. I think it would be cool to have a (streaming playcount) counter.

    iTunes told my that there were five users connected, but mine only returned 3, the *:3689 and two actual users...odd

    and i agree...lots of information about what is going on with each user would be really cool
