The usb ports on my macbook pro are broken, so I thought that it would be possible to connect it to my raspberry pi over a local wifi network (or something like that) so that I can use usb devices, specifically usb storage devices and wired usb mouses, with my laptop again.
Think it's possible? I've done a bit of research, but I don't know where to look.
note: I've asked the same question here - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=128375&e=0
Edit - tough crowd! If you're going to downvote my question, please tell me why so that I can try to improve :)
I've done some digging based on suggestions to check out NFS, and came across this tutorial, which will allow me to transfer files from a usb drive to my pi, then to my computer: http://www.instructables.com/id/Turn-Raspberry-Pi-into-a-Network-File-System-versi/
Fingers crossed for a solution that lets me use a usb mouse!
