how to add USB client to my NAS

Hi, lets say I have a NAS server
One small partition with linux installed and another large one formatted
How do I add a USB client to this system so that when I plug in a computer to it it would recognises the larger partition as a usb mass storage device.
I know its posible since there are manufacturer that sell their NAS with a type B USB 3 inputs.
although Id like to use the onboard usb hosts

Thanks !!

If you're saying you want to make a standard computer appear to be a USB mass storage drive to another computer, as far as I know that isn't possible with standard hardware.

You would be better off using one of those host-to-host USB transfer cables, which as I understand, show up as a network interface.
