A no-ip and dyndns client for Linux

I was looking for a nice dynamic ip client to use with and found this one:

inadyn - Simple and small DynDNS client written in the C language

$ sudo vi /etc/inadyn.conf

# Your username

# Your password

# Your hostname. This option can appear multiple times
alias (i.e.:

Also edit /etc/default/inadyn and change RUN_DAEMON to:


Finally create a symbolic link (I know, but I don’t like to use that command) to start the daemon:

$ cd /etc/rc2.d/
$ sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/inadyn S40inadyn

Then execute the command to start the daemon right now:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/inadyn start

Update: There is also the native noip2 client: A step-by-step installation is showed here:
