Seagate GoFlex Home

hi,

there are a few mentions of this drive on this forum, but they all tend to assume a level of networking knowledge that I don't have, or they tell the person to find someone else who does know about port forwarding e.t.c., but that's not possible for me either ..

I'm trying to access this drive remotely through my iPhone and having no luck at all.

Locally, via WiFi at home, it sees it as the uPnP drive no problem and I can access it. Externally, though, nothing seems to work.

If I go to this page to test port forwarding on the device ..

http://support.goflexhome.hipserv.com/e ... rward.html

i get .

Port 22 (Support): This port is open / accessible from the internet.
Port 443 (Secure Web access): This port is open / accessible from the internet.
Port 80 (Web access): This port is open / accessible from the internet.


So if I add the device using the external IP it gave me, as well as the login details, nothing happens - it shows as "unknown media server" and when i press it, it just sits there.

if I go to the GoFlex setup menu and open "Lan Connection" and choose Manual IP Address, do I enter the external IP that the GoFlex gives me into the "Gateway" field ?

I tried entering it in to the "server IP address" and ended up having to re-flash the firmware as i couldn't access the drive at all !!. So i thought i'd ask about the gateway field first :)

any clues would be most welcome, thankyou

we suggest you to learn about this firstly, as open port will make your local network has security issue.
