Is there any way to stream disc images (ISO's) from one computer to another?

Is there any way to stream disc images (ISO's) from one computer to another?

To start - I do not mean videos/DVD's, and I do not have Windows file sharing set up (and to be honest, am looking for a solution involving a program that I could maybe start and stop fully).

"You can try HTTPDisk (download link at the bottom of the page)

HttpDisk is a virtual disk driver for Windows that uses HTTP to mount disk or CD/DVD images from a web server.

However in that case you need to share ISO images via HTTP server which would involve a lot more than simply sharing windows folder and mounting image from there."

"share the drive/folder with your ISO images over the network and map the drive/folder on the client.

install WinCDEmu on the client.

open the mapped network drive on the client, double click an ISO Image to mount.

to release the ISO, open My Computer, right click on the virtual CD/DVD drive and select Eject."

You can put you ISO files on an USB external storage device, and plug it either on you main desktop computer or on your laptop.
