So in Part One, we took an old external had drive, and added it as storage to a Raspberry Pi. In Part Two, we took that Raspberry Pi and shared the new folders on the local network. In this final tutorial, I’ll show what all of this has been for, and show you how to create your own Home Theater Raspberry Pi.
In part one of our tutorial, we discussed how to mount an external hard drive or USB drive on to our Raspberry Pi (or any other Linux based) computer. In this tutorial we will discuss how to share folders from that computer to your local network. I am doing this so I can share the media files I have on my external hard drive, and access them from many places on my network, such as my laptop, my android phone, and my Raspberry Pi running XBMC. You can use this tutorial to share files in a similar way.
