BB as Mass-Storage for a Machine with a connected networkshare

Hey People,

i´m a beginner with the BB.
i want to use the BB as a USB mass storage for a machine that can only store data on a USB,
At the same time I would like to copy the data to a connected network drive.
Is this possible with BB?

does anyone have an idea how to do that?

Thanks

Hey People,

  Which Beagle? There are many of them

i want to use the BB as a USB mass storage for a machine that can only
store data on a USB,

  The main USB port on the BeagleBone Black (and cousins) is a host port
-- you connect USB devices (keyboard/mouse/flash drives, etc) TO the BBB on
that port, and the BBB is the controller. The second connector /is/ a USB
client port, but it is used to provide a default local network connection
and access to a READ-ONLY (fake) FAT filesystem with starter information.

At the same time I would like to copy the data to a connected network drive.
Is this possible with BB?

  Does the unnamed machine have network capability (can it run an rndis
driver to use IP connections over the USB port)? If it does you could
perhaps set up the BBB as an NFS (Samba for Windows) device and make the
network drive accessible through it (though that is rather painful sounding
-- mounting the network drive on the BBB in order to then mount that mount
point on the unnamed machine).
