An external hard drive is usually USB. If so, then any USB port on the machine should suffice.

If the external drive is self powered (no AC power connector) then it may have a cable with 2 USB connectors on one end. If so, connect both the unused USB ports.

If the external is AC powered the cable is keyed, you can only connect the power one way. Same goes for the USB cable.
