I have a Dlink DNS-313 network storage device with a SATA Hard disk drive in it.  I have configured this to sit on my home network with a local IP address.  

Does anyone know how to configure this device so I can access it remotely.  It says I can, but can not figure out hot to configure it?

Thanks

If you mean with "Remotely" you want to access it from the internet, check it's manual, it tells you to forward the ports to the IP of the device (that has to be done on your router).

I have done that.  It says to port forward port21 to the ip of the dlink device.

Now what do I do??
What address do I need to input into a web browser in order to get into it?

The public address of the router, which you got from your ISP. You can find out your ip by visiting http://whatismyip.com

Since you are probably getting a dynamic IP from your ISP, this will change, so it can be advantageous to use the free dyndns service so you can use a domain name and not the IP.:

http://dyndns.com

As this is a port for ftp access, you would use ftp://IPAddress to access your nas.

Do you want to access data or the device itself? Use manual explains how to setup FTP server to access your data via internet: ftp://files.dlink.com.au/products/DNS-313/Manuals/DNS-313_A1_Manual_1.00.pdf
