this konfabulator widget will do that.

or type this on the command line:

lsof -i :3689

Nice! I've wanted to do this for a while myself. Incidentally, is konfabulator useful? It seems like an interesting enough gadget but I can't tell whether it'd be worth buying.

That's a "list open files" command, in case you're nervous. The "-i :3689" option limits the list to files associated with port 3689, through which iTunes shares across LANs. Use the Terminal application.

There's also a little app called iTunes Monitor that does this; try Versiontracker or MacUpdate.
