Leechster, getTunes...

You can also use it share music with your friends at the coffee house, in the dorm, etc - all with little or no setup." It works on local subnets only and offers automatic iTunes import, iTunes playlist support, ID3 tag lookup, and the ability to toggle listening/downloading. (getTunes 2.1 offers similar functions.)
