Remote access on by Default (Seagate Central)

Yet another annoyance for Seagate central users: You can’t permanently disable remote access.

Seagate Central Cloud Storage Devices come with remote access which used UPnP to go arround your firewall. While this may be useful to some users, it could also be a vulnerability for others. It is possible to turn it off temporarily in the web interface for the product, but after every restart, it is back on.
