    I went through the above sticky and setup my Airport Extreme as a server connect with my external Hard drive. I have no problems connecting and copying information to and from the drive.

    My question is and I seem to have a problem with is setting up iTunes remotely. When I try to add the items from my HDD on the Airport Server my MBA is transferring a realtime file to my HDD on my MBA.

    Is there a way I can access my music from my newly created server through itunes without having the information physically stored on my MBA? If someone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    It works connected to my HDD via wifi. I think I have to do more tweaking for out of network browsing. Thanks for helping me get on the right track!
