A no-ip and dyndns client for Linux

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

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

Then you need to edit /etc/inadyn.conf and modify some parameters:

$ sudo vi /etc/inadyn.conf

# Please see inadyn(8) for a complete list of providers
system default@no-ip.com #(read /usr/share/doc/inadyn/README.md for dyndns example)

# Your username
username your-noip.com-username

# Your password
password your-noip.com-password

# Your hostname. This option can appear multiple times
alias your-noip.com-hostname (i.e.: yourname.no-ip.org)

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: http://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/installing-the-linux-dynamic-update-client/ A step-by-step installation is showed here:
