How can I share an Android USB/SD folder to local network?

I want to offer LAN read/write access to a USB drive (or to an SD folder) to computers on my network.

This is not on a phone or tablet, it’s an Android set-top box, so it’s not like I’ll be joining random unsafe networks, so security isn’t of much concern.

I’m able to browse networks FROM the Android box and I can send/receive files to/from other machines. It’s the reverse that I want to do though. I want to connect to the box from a computer and read/write files from/to it.

Searching for apps using any of the keywords in the above text just brings up apps that can browse the network from the Android device.

Sharing is caring!
