I would like to pull into a truck stop and offer a folder of free documentaries, broadcasting from my bus. I have a bunch of videos in a web folder and can access it locally and would like others to be able to access it freely and without passwords or other restrictions.
I run Linux and have an internal wireless adapter in the laptop but my bus has an antenna on the roof which I connect via USB to create a wireless signal; this is the one I’d like to focus on since it will offer the most reach to all those truckers out there.
I have a Linux box which is the router direct from the modem. The Linux box as a router via an ethernet card as the outbound to a hub, switch, another router, whatever I want it to go to right now it’s to exclusively to a printer rather than going through the switch.
The Linux box is also the server; the web server is Apache2 and serves videos, pictures, and documents.
I already know how to setup a wireless router to the outbound channel of my Linux box which is the proven better method as opposed to being placed before my Linux box!
What is the easiest way to ensure that when someone logs onto the wireless router that they can access this folder? Would this be so simple as a port-forward? But I think that only works from the website?
