I've just spent a while playing around with mpd and I have successfully
got what I wanted working.

  On the server there is an mpd daemon.

  I have connected successfully with my laptop (running mpd as a client)
and also with a remote Windows XP SP2 machine (my friend somewhere else
in England).

  Only thing is that it's encrypted at just 128kbit.  Something more
along the lines of 256kbit-1024kbit would be much nicer ;)
