View Full Version : [SOLVED] Dynamic DNS / No-IP Client deleted from 12.04 ?!?

May 9th, 2012, 06:17 PM
I've been using Ubuntu for my home server for a few years now (since Jaunty).

My home internet IP is dynamic, so to get around it I've always used no-ip.com and their dynamic dns service.

That was, until I updated to 12.04 and tried to install the no-ip update client (noip2) and I find it's not in the repos.

Is there another client, service which I can use instead?

I'm such a numpty.

No-IP have the source available. Quick compile, sorted.

hi, i'm really new to the linux os and i was having the same problem with with no-ip on ubuntu server 12.4
after a bit of digging i found a solution.

you need to install the gcc and g++ compilers, This will also install GNU make.
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ gcc -v
$ make -v

to install No-IP Linux Dynamic Update Client Ubuntu 12.04

cd /usr/local/src/
wget http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
tar xf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
cd noip-2.1.9-1/
sudo make install

you should get asked for your email add and password

just enter them and bobs your teapot

this worked for me and i'm up and running;)
