    you can access your music from one or more machines aslong as they are on your local netowrk, it also allows you to copy your music across the network via iTunes

    click on home sharing on the itunes main windows, enter your itunes username and pass and hit ok, do the same on all your machines and providing its allowed through your firewall it should work ok
