Install the no-ip.com client as a system service
Authored by: bhines on Jun 13, '03 05:55:56PM

No need for this, just install it with fink. 'fink install noip'
then 'sudo daemonic enable noip' and you will be all set.

wrong permissions for config file?
Authored by: phti on Jun 17, '03 01:38:28PM

it seems that the fink install method sets wrong passwords to the /sw/etc/no-ip.conf config file, so that the no-ip daemon cannot see it at startup (watch console log for errors). Actual permissions for that file are rw------- (600), I changed them to rw-r--r-- (644) to make it work.

thanks for the tip - I've installed Fink, and now noip... running
/sw/bin/noip
correctly connects to the no-ip.com "dynamic client update server" ( dynupdate.no-ip.com ) and updates the info (I used Little Snitch to check noip's connection to that particular server).

just in case the ip changes, I've also decided to add a script to /etc/periodic/daily/ (daily tasks run by cron) modeled on a stripped version of the startup script located in /Library/StartupItems/daemonic-noip/ , so that noip would run once a day.

cheers!

Install the no-ip.com client as a system service

I tried using fink install noip but it just shows the following message:
Information about 41 packages read in 0 seconds.
Failed: no package found for specification 'noip'!
What does that mean? Is there a special installation package for fink? If so, where can I download it?
