iTunes sharing to iOS

I am trying to get the new iTunes sharing going between my Mac and my iPhone 4. I have installed the lastest iTunes and have iOS 4.3 installed. I have enabled the sharing in iTunes, but when I open the iPod app on the iPhone, I don't see my iTunes media. I am trying it while both are on my home wifi. What am I missing?

Re: iTunes sharing to iOS

1. Are you running the latest version of iTunes v10.2.1 ?

2. In iTunes Preferences, is Sharing truned on ? ("Share My Library On My Local Network")

3. In iTunes Advanced menu, is Turn On Home Sharing enabled ?

4. Do you have WiFi turned on your iPhone ?

5. Under the iPhone Settings - iPod Settings, is Home Sharing setup with your Apple ID and password ?

Thanks Santoku. Point 5 was the problem. Didn't know to enable it in iPod settings on the iPhone
