    iTunes Home Sharing problem
    I am trying to activate my iTunes home sharing between my MAC Mini and a PC with Vista.

    The program has worked with the PC. I can access the iTunes Library on my MAC; however, when trying to access the PC's Library. I receive the following message:

    The shared library is not responding (-3259)...

    Check that any firewall software running on either the shared computer or this computer has been set to allow communication on port 3689.

    How do I check this?

    Any assistance would be appreciated

    What anti-virus software are you running on the Vista machine. Many of them have their own firewall nowadays. I'd start there.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
