Ok, I have a samba share set up share all my mp3's throughout my home network, but I would also like to be able to access these through the internet when I am away from home. What would be the best way to go about this. I was thinking about just fowarding the ports for the samba share, but I have read that samba isn't really secure enough to be open to the web. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

1. mpd with icecast (never was able to set this up)
2. gnump3d - easy to set up, should do what you want

I'll add a +1 for gnump3d. It's easy to install and setup.

Thanks, I got gnump3d working, but is there a way to connect to it through rythembox or any other music player, without having to open up and use the browser?
