What is the best way to share usb drive on network?


I want to connect my external usb drive to my server and mount the entire directory as a network drive.

Can this be easily done with samba or nfs or some other way? I've been reading some nfs and samba tutorials and I'm still not sure.

Both Samba and NFS can easily do that. It usually comes down to: If you want to share with Windows systems use Samba, otherwise use NFS.
