How to Download and Configure the No-IP Dynamic Update Client on Linux


Hey everyone, welcome back to today’s Support Question of the Day video. I’m Natalie. Today’s questions is, “How do I download and configure the Dynamic Update Client for Linux?” First you will need to open a Terminal Window or Command Prompt and login as the root user. You can become the root user by entering in sudo su – followed by the root user password. Next, enter the following commands. You can find these in the description text below. *music* If you get “Make Not Found” or “Missing GCC” you do not have the GCC compiler tools on your machine. You will need to install these in order to proceed. Once successfully installed, enter your No-IP username and password. *music* You will then be prompted to set which hostnames you want to update and how often you want the DUC to check. Please note, one of the questions is, “Do you wish to update all hosts?” If you answer the question incorrectly it could effect hostnames pointing to other locations. Now that the client is installed and configured you will need to launch the DUC. Enter the command, usr/local/bin/noip2 This will launch the update client in the background Congratulations the DUC is now installed and your host will be updated anytime the IP address changes.

  3. When i enter "wget http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz

    " I get this message: http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz

    please help 🙁

  4. Somebody help me. I have two gateways 1st public IP(eth1) and 2nd dynamic IP (eth2).
    When I create my config file I select eth2 but does not change for my ip with interface eth2 use IP eth1 .

  5. Running without sudo may display "Can't locate configuration file /usr/local/etc/no-ip2.conf. (Try -c). Ending!".

  6. Wanted to point out that the written instructions (both on the site and in this video) state:
    "…Download the DUC and save the file to: /usr/local/src …"
    but in the video (0:23) you can clearly see it's being extracted to /usr/local/bin instead…

    Also, after 'make install' finishes the config process starts right away automatically
    (Makefile line #31: ${BINDIR}/${TGT} -C -c /tmp/no-ip2.conf)
    The .conf file created by 'make install' is identical to the one created by '/usr/local/bin/noip2 -C'
    so it seems the last step is not needed at all.
    I could be overlooking something but it's not very likely and it doesn't "hurt" to run it anyway…

  7. please help me
