mAP 2nD - What can onboard USB port be used for?

Thu Apr 11, 2019 2:05 am

Hey guys, I have been using a mAP 2nD now for a few years and it's been great.
I've been looking at the USB port on it and wondering what i could be used for.
Ideally I was looking to plug in a USB stick/HDD and have the contents be shared on the LAN with connected devices. Is this possible?

Yes, you can do that. Or you can power the mAP with a USB power bank, and put it in your backpack. Then you can pay for some kind of airport Hotspot, and share the purchased connection with your friends with the mAP

Don't expect some crazy performance, though. The CPU will choke easily when transferring even small files.

Also, SMB is known to have serious security issues.

In conclusion, I don't recommend doing it. Been there, done that, not worth it.
