Do I have to turn off my Firewall in order for iTunes to be read through my Apple TV?

I was trying to read my iTunes movie files on my Apple TV, but I had to disable the firewall on my Mac to do this. If I disable my firewall does this give everyone access to my computer? My computer is password protected.
