    I think this feature is really cool with sharing between family computers in the house. My question however is can I share it between my computer in one state and my home computer in a different state so that while I am at hotels or on the road I can access them through the internet.

    It appears not

    From iTunes help - "If your computer is connected to other computers over a local network, you can share items in your library with up to five of those computers"

    Seems a no-go for long-distance sync then...

    Alternatively, you could create a VPN between your computer and your home network.

    It works. Slow, but it works.
