Serve an 💿 ISO image over a network

Let’s say you want to serve an ISO image of Red Hat 7.3 over a network so that others can mount and use it. To accomplish this goal, do the following:

mkdir -p /pub/redhat/os
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/pub/redhat/cd1.iso
mount -o loop /pub/redhat/cd1.iso /pub/redhat/os

Now server the ISO via HTTP, FTP, NFS, or Samba

Of course, all of the above is assuming you have an ISO image to serve in the first place. If you don’t know how, find out how to Make an ISO image.
