Does bt home hub support netbooting ie pxe server?

Hi im wondering does the bt home hub support netbooting (pxe server)

 

I would like to install ubuntu on a usb and plug it into the router so that i can host my own znc softwhere without paying to host it on a server.

 

So ubuntu will start up on the usb.

 

But i doint know how to install it or start it from the bt home hub.

 

Also does the bt smart hub support this too?

You might be best to buy a raspberry pi or small computer hardware instead to install the operating system on along with the software you need.

 

Otherwise a virtual machine may also work on an existing computer (i.e use of VMWare or equivalent)

@thomasmulhallThe hub cannot be accessed externally.

You 'run' software on some form of CPU. What are you going to connect to the USB? It's probably not a CPU.
