   That's confusing me too - you should not need to use any tunneling
   to connect a nas client to a nas server.  As long as the client and
   server can talk to each other on the network, ssh tunneling
   shouldn't be needed, and my add latency.

   But hey, if it's working... :)

   Yes - as has been mentioned, there is no native nas server for OSX.
   I looked at portaudio - it seems like it could do te jobs (with some
   limitations) based on a quick review of the API.

   Personally, if I had an OSX machine sitting here, I'd use CoreAudio
   so as to avoid dependance on another library.  But, it may work fine
   for you.

   Be sure and send me the patch when done :)
