I have a 2nd gen Ipod Touch, and a new MBP. I have the remote app, and the vlc app for the Touch, but neither work with the laptop.

What is odd that two of my friends have iPhones, and the remotes connect and work with my laptop almost instantly.

As far as i know, the remotes should work on the touch, should they not?

Wifi still works on the touch, as i can connect to my network etc.

I am sure that both my laptop and touch are connected to the same network when trying to use the apps.

When using the itunes remote app, i can see my ipod and enter the passcode, but then it just says verifying for a while before the ipod disappears from the left hand side
