I've found out there is no way to access my music which is held on my machine at home on an IPAD if it's not on the local network.
I was hoping I could use a VPN to connect to my home network which would then mean that Homeshare in Itunes would work but apparently not.
Is there another music application I can use on the IPAD which would allow me to access my mp3's over a remote connection/vpn? All my music is stored on a network hard drive and I don't want to lose all my space on my ipad with just music if I can access it remotely. As I say locally it's fine as I can just use homeshare but this is no good when I'm out
