Thanks for nothing Seagate Share support. Here's the Sourceforge link to FileZilla 3.5.2. This version worked for me. Though it would be nice to get some support from Seagate Share describing more details about a secure FTP connection to the GoFlex Home drive.
I also found from another Seagate Share support post that you can SSH into the GoFlex Home drive.
Open an SSH terminal and type
username is your username to access the GoFlex Home drive.
IP address is the GoFlex Home drive IP address (check the connected devices on your router preferences page).
XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX is the product ID, which you can find by clicking the "About GoFlex Home" link on the bottom left of your Seagate Share home page (the home page after you log into your GoFlex Home drive on the Seagate Share website).

Software is still ripe off. Even though the sftp works for pc, I can't find an android sftp client that works with the system.
Seagate directed me to the other company but the other company said it works with filezilla but never answered when I asked what will work with a mobile phone (android).
Watch out for the software. Don't buy unless all you want to do is to connect with pc.

I use AndFTP on my android phone. It claims to support SFTP and FTPS but I haven't worried too much about that and just use standard FTP which I can confirm works fine.
I also use Fsync which is another FTP client app that allows synchronising a GFH folder with a my phone and it works great. It also claims FTPS TLS/SSL but, again i haven't worried about it
update: tried AndFTP with SFTP and it works fine on my android 2.2 phone over 3G
