  FTP and Secure FTP
 

Getting Started

LAN and WAN FTP access can be enabled from your GoFlex Home's Preferences -> Network Services page. By default, LAN FTP access is enabled.

Manual port forwarding

If your router doesn't support UPnP, or UPnP is disabled, forwarding of the following ports are necessary for FTP. Port 20(tcp), 21(tcp), 50000(tcp) and 50001(tcp).

LAN access

With LAN access enabled in Preferences, configure your FTP client to connect to the ip address of your GoFlex Home over port 21. The Logon Type is normal. The username and password is the same used to login via seagateshare.com.

Remote FTP access

With Remote FTP access enabled in Preferences, configure your FTP client to connect to the domain name of your GoFlex Home over port 21. Your domain name will be your GoFlex Home name appended by ".seagateshare.com". For example, if your GoFlex Home name is "mygoflex", your domain will be "mygoflex.seagateshare.com". The Logon Type is normal. The username and password is the same used to login via seagateshare.com.

Secure FTP access

Premium users benefit from being able to secure their FTP connection. With Remote FTP access enabled in Preferences, configure your FTP client to connect to the domain name of your GoFlex Home over port 21. Your domain name will be your GoFlex Home name appended by ".seagateshare.com". For example, if your GoFlex Home name is "mygoflex", your domain will be "mygoflex.seagateshare.com". The Protocol remains FTP, the encryption(secure) is set to Explicit FTP over TLS/SSH. The Logon Type is normal. The username and password is the same used to login via seagateshare.com.
