I'd look into mt-daapd shares (aka Firefly Media Server). It was originally developed by Apple, Inc. and is compatible with iTunes for Windows, Rhthymbox and Aramok for Ubuntu. It's in the repositories. I believe it runs on port 3689, so if you forwarded that port from your router to the mt-daapd server you should be able to connect over the internet. I run an mt-daapd on my home server, but I haven't tried connecting from the other side yet. I've attached a screenshot from Rhthymbox showing MyJukeBox media server. Neat thing is, my wife and also pick up the server on her Windows XP machine running iTunes.

sudo apt-get install mt-daapd
