Controlling a remote MPD server

I’ve written about my music setup on multiple occasions, and was pleasantly surprised by the ease of which I could control my remote MPD server today.

I’ve been running MPD on my personal computer for close to six years now. As I was working on my office laptop today, I wanted to skip a song, but had no easy access to my personal computer. Luckily, this was easily solved by directing my office laptop MPD client (vimpc) to my personal computer.
