  • Share USB over LAN


    I want to share a USB over the my LAN ( couple of PC's will be storing files in the USB) with read write permission, any recommended software?

    These are active directory users but i am not able to share the USB through the user profile...

    Thanks in advance

      Is it attached to a PC? If so, share as normal
      If not, there are boxes (e.g. TP-Link TL-PS10U) that claim to allow lan access to storage devices and MFDs (as well as being a LAN print server)

      Note I have not tried the thing for storage, but it is a decent enough print box and the manual claims it works as a storage device

        Its a USB disk, it is not a normal USB, it a vendor USB like doogle which get updated through internet for the documentation. I google it and found that USB over Network is my solution. I tried and it is working fine.
