Is it possible to setup a PC running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to
- Act as a WiFi access point
- DHCP server
- File server
I would like to install an Ubuntu PC in an automobile. It would not have internet access. However, I would like for Android and iOS phones and tablets to be able to connect to it via wifi and then stream video files stored on the Ubuntu PC (in a USB drive connected to the Ubuntu PC). Is this possible?
I've read that as of Ubuntu 16, the PC can create an ad-hoc WiFi network that devices (e.g. Android and iOS) can use, but all of those articles I've read also refer to the Ubuntu PC being connected to the internet by a wired ethernet connection. I'm unclear whether the PC must have an internet connection for this to work.
