How to Find IP Address of GoFlex Home

Post by Zipppy » Tue Oct 04, 2016 12:39 am

My backup software needs the IP address of my GoFlex Home external drive. I'm running Win 10 and the desktop software isn't compatible. I've tried various methods, including those in the manual but none work. How can I find it? Thank you.

Have a look at the webpage of your router. If the GoFlex has requested an IP address by DHCP, it might be listed in the client list.

Thank you for your reply. I can't find anything titled a Clients List on the web site. Under Lan settings, DNS shows an IP address but this does not work.

Thank you for your reply. I couldn't find anything titled a Clients List on the web site but when I signed into the drives web address I realized the IP address showed up in the URL and that worked. Thanks!
