Recently I logged into my dyndns.com account to continue my good free status to realize that their free service has been discontinued. I then performed an emergency Google Search for “free dns” and found no-ip.com. What amazed me is this group is certainly taking advantage of DynDNS’ move and asked me if I recently lost my free DynDNS account. YUP! Enough of my story, here’s how to setup the No-IP client on your Fedora machine.
Obtain your No-IP Account
This move is self-explanatory.
Download the Client
Direct your browser to the No-IP knowledge base (link below) or YUM it up baby! Most of the commands below require administrative access to your machine (sudo).
yum install noip
Configure the No-IP Client
- Create a default configuration file. You will then be prompt for your No-IP credentials.
- Add noip to the startup list whenever your computer starts.
- Turn the noip service on.
systemctl enable noip
systemctl start noip
