It probably is. Heres the listing of files for the planet-ccrma midishare
If I remember correctly, you run /usr/bin/msInetDriver to start a
midishare ethernet driver, you use /usr/bin/msRawMidi to connect alsa
(via virmidi) to midishare, and you use /usr/bin/msconnect to
graphically connect everything together.
There are similar tools for mac, and probably for windows as well.
