How can I find the IP address of a computer with a shared iTunes library? The share shows up in iTunes, but it's with an odd name on a largish network and I need to know which computer is sharing the library.

Bonjour Browser will give a list of all Bonjour services on your network. It will list all the computers with their names, IP address and ports. Mac OS X only.

In Terminal:

lsof | grep iTunes | grep TCP

I do have access to a mac, but I couldn't get the share to show up on the mac. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 20 '10 at 14:40

You want a ZeroConf/Bonjour browser which allows you to see the packets sent out by iTunes.

Under Windows I would suggest the Zeroconf Neighborhood Explorer - http://www.stg.com/zeroconf_explorer.html

If you have a programmer near, there is a very helpful demo program in the jmdns project (Java based)
