I have a GoFlex 1TB and a DLink DIR-605L router. There are no settings for virtual server, only port forwarding. I set up the port forwarding rules for the 4 ports with the GoFlex IP address and the TCP protocol. Can't access the device from outside the home message is ports are blocked and another device is listening on port 80. Tried any instead of TCP still no luck. Upnp is enabled.
Found a web site with router set-up info and GoFlex but they don't list the DIR-605L.
Any help woould be appreciated.

You also need to set allow remote access in the Seagateshare web app Preferences page.
This will update the Seagate/Axentra server (it is not instantaneous though).
All remote traffic is routed via the Seagate/Axentra servers, because your Public IP address assigned by your ISP usually changes every time you reconnect to your ISP. The Seagate/Axentra server keeps track of the Public IP address associated with your Goflex Home so you don't need to know the Public IP address.
You can test port forwarding here (you might have already found this)

The share box is checked on the preference page.
here is the message from the port forwarding app:
|You have 0 out of 4 ports open (going to your GoFlex Home from the Internet). See details below.|
|Your External IP Address is: 188.8.131.52|
|Port 21 (FTP access): This port is closed.|
|Port 22 (Support): This port is closed.|
|Port 443 (Secure Web access): This port is closed.|
Port 80 (Web access): A device other than your GoFlex Home is listening on this port.

"The share box is checked on the preference page"
The box that needs to be checked is under Server Preferences > Remote Access and is labelled "Enable Remote Access".
I don't know what "The share box" refers to.

OK, in that case the problem could be on your router. Have you set a static IP for your GFH?
Otherwise port forwarding may be pointing to the wrong location once you reboot and IP addresses get reallocated.
It seems strange that the port forwarding test says there is another device on port 80
