    Do you want to share files or your iTunes music library?

    To share files between the two, open Sharing in System Preferences, make sure the box by File Sharing is ticked, and add any folders you wish to share over the network.

    I suggested to Apple, and if others feel the same way they should also suggest, that Apple include an automatic sync feature in the next version of iTunes.

    I'm hoping that Apple will develop software that would sync music through Time Capsule. The sync would happen automatically much like MobileMe sync works.

    If you support this, suggest it at www.apple.com/feedback
