    Default Do I have to use the Dynamic services listed

    I use no-ip.com for my ddns service and it isn't listed. Are the three in the list the only ones permitted.
    Thanks

    That's a good questions............. I don't see why you couldn't do others, but not sure where or if you can configure it......anyone else have an idea about that?

    I believe there is a debian installer for no-ip but you will have to configure it at the command line.

    Sure

    ***Disclaimer: Do this at your own risk***

    1) Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following line
    Code:
    deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free
    2) at the terminal do apt-get update

    3) then apt-get install no-ip

    4) When that is finished do no-ip -C and enter your no-ip account information at the prompts.

    5) Then do /etc/init.d/no-ip start

    I just did it to test and it worked.

    Be sure to remove the added line in step 1 from your /etc/apt/sources.list when you are finished.

    Thanks for the response. I will give the code a try. I haven't done much with code, but will give it a try.

    Thanks again

    Ok I gave this some thought and to save me some time I am just going to ask. Could you explain how I would go about editing the source file?
    I would assume that there is a built in editor in Debian.
    As you can tell I am a complete newbie to linux. I don't mine trying with a little direction.
    Thanks

    Try this:
    1 #Make back up of sources.list
    Code:
    cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.tmp
    2
    Code:
    echo "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free" >>/etc/apt/sources.list
    3
    Code:
    apt-get update
    4
    Code:
    apt-get install no-ip
    5 # no-ip -C prompts you for your credentials at no-ip
    Code:
    no-ip -C
    6 #Restore original sources.list
    Code:
    cp /etc/apt/sources.list.tmp /etc/apt/sources.list
    7 #start the no-ip update service
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/no-ip start

    Thanks for making it simple. I followed all of the directions and I didn't get any errors. So I think it may have worked. I won't know until tomorrow. I have to remove my linksys router that is in front of the untangle box and reconfigure the router on the untangle box.

    I guess the only question I have left is. Since I started the service from the command line do I need to enable the service in the networking/hostname config dialog box.
    I assume that no-ip will not be listed there. Am I correct?
    Thanks for all of your help.

    No you don't. Just leave that dialog box alone.

    It should have updated your ip with no-ip soon as you started the service. I tested on my Untangle server in bridge mode, which has an internal IP, and it updated the no-ip site with my external IP address.
