    I have two Macs, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini.

    I have all my music on MacBook Pro. I want to be able to access iTunes from Mac Mini. But I don't like Home Sharing, because it doesn't really sync my music, and that route keeps two separate libraries.

    When I'm home, both Macs are connected to the same network. I want my Mac Mini to access MacBook Pro's iTunes Library, update new music from Mac Mini which gets reflected on MacBook Pro. So that if I consolidate the file from Mac Mini, it gets put into the hard drive of MacBook Pro.

    I understand what I'm trying to do, doesn't actually put physical files on Mac Mini. If MacBook Pro is not in the network or is turned off, that I wouldn't be able to access MacBook Pro's iTunes Library.

    I don't want to use any third party applications to "sync" my music. I want to be able to do it by using File Sharing and such.

    Any ideas?

    Maybe have a look at rsync.
    It's built into Mac OS X, but I don't know how to use it. ChronoSync is the GUI front-end for that.
