I recently set up a Goflex Home and it's working quite well, can access from any computer, tablet and even HDTV net connection. I was able to connect remotely from the Starbucks, just tested to see what the capabilities are. What I regularly do from remote locations where WiFi is available is to access my security camera system at home. It's set up with a DDNS and can find my system even when the IP address changes. This also works well most times, however now I have a conflict between the two that I have not been able to resolve yet. No matter what settings I use in Seagate preferences or within the gateway/router on my home network, I can't seem to get the GoFlex to stop taking the connection when I try to access the camera system remotely. I believe the DDNS just directs the link to my IP address at the time (probably with no port indication) and every time the Seagate interface comes up. I tried to block it from internet access, FTP and everything else that is outside of the network. There's no doubt that the Seagate software gets pretty active in changing router settings in the forwarding section (linksys router) even though I believe I have turned that off in preferences and even restarted the Goflex. If anyone has some advise, I am open to trying whatever it may be, but for now I just have to turn off the GoFlex to prevent it from taking over remote access. I may have to put it on a separate part of the network somehow, but then access internally will be more difficult or not possible. One of my purposes for the Goflex is to supply content for the TV, not so much for computer backups or other storage, but it still needs to be accessible. It just needs to coexist on the net without any action upon remote access to the internal network.

Here's a couple of links that may help.
The first one explains the problem pretty well
The second one has a bit more technical detail
The simplest solution would be to get your web servers to use different ports. I don't think there's much you can do with the Goflex, but maybe your camera web server can be configured?
If not, good luck with the reverse proxy option set-up. I don't think there's any easy way to shut down the goflex web server.

I had the same problem. I then decided to change the ports and it worked. You can first delete all internet cache from the
browser. Then access your Goflex again. If it doesn't work redirect the ports as said and delete the browser cache.
It will then work perfectly.
look for the attachment by Megabyte too.
