Thanks for your reply.
I'm sorry, I should have clarified that I am running Firefly Media Server on Linux, not Windows.
I think what you are referring to is access to a plain network share, which I can do on my Linux box using Samba (Windows networking for Linux); I have shared my music folder on Linux as you would do in Windows XP, and I have mapped a network drive on my girlfriend's XP laptop and she can access that in MediaMonkey.
This is, however, not what I am after.
On my laptop--which also runs Linux--I can launch either Amarok (the closest thing to MediaMonkey on Linux, but not quite), Rhythmbox or Banshee (both pure iTunes clones, including the DAAP server) and instead of browsing an ordinary network share to access the music on my desktop, the aforementioned media players simply detect the Firefly Media Server (the new name for mt-daapd, which is in fact just a DAAP server, the feature that several people have already requested for MediaMonkey) and let me play the music stored on my desktop.
See this screenshot here http://banshee-project.org/Image:0_11_0_daap.png
Note that at the top it shows Music Library (i.e. the locally stored music), whereas further down it shows Banshee Music Share (highlighted in blue, with a networked computer icon) which is music stored on another PC and made available through DAAP.
This Rhythmbox screenshot shows three DAAP music shares at the bottom
This Amarok screenshot shows a DAAP shared music library. Note the 'Shared Music' at the top. http://www.flickr.com/photos/geek/255656403/
So, my question is, can MediaMonkey directly access a DAAP shared library (whether made available through Firefly, iTunes, Rhythmbox, Banshee or any other type of DAAP server), as shown in these screenshots?
Several of my friends also run MediaMonkey, and when they come over with their laptops, I'd like them to be able to access my DAAP shared music, instead of having browse my network to find my shared music folder and then access that from within MediaMonkey.
