Installing Dynamic DNS “No-IP” on Fedora 18

If your IP address at your home is dynamic (most likely it is) and you would like to access your server over the internet, It can be done, but you have to remember your public IP address. Yes, you can remember your IP address, but eventually it will change. The best way to get around this is to use a dynamic DNS.

I chose No-IP because it can be installed on Linux machine. I have downloaded Fedora 18 32bit, and installed it on my ESXi for one purpose only–just to update my IP address. First you would need to create an free account at Here is the link on how to setup your account: and if you prefer a video here it is:

Now, once you have your account fully setup, you would need a host to update your no-ip database record. In my case, I am using Fedora 18. Open your terminal and type in:

[networkshinobi@localhost ~]$ su
Password: <enter-your-password-here>
[root@localhost networkshinobi]# yum install noip
<installation deleted for brevity>
[root@localhost networkshinobi]# noip2 -C

Now, if you received this message below after using the command “noip2 -C“,  then you would need to install “glibc.i686“. To do so just use the command: yum install glibc.i686 then you should good to go.

bash: /usr/local/bin/noip2: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

Now, to continue our installation.

[root@localhost networkshinobi]# noip2 -C

Auto configuration for Linux client of

Please enter the login/email string for <your-email-address>
Please enter the password for user 'your-email-address' <your-password>

Only one host [your-domain-name] is registered to this account.
It will be used.
Please enter an update interval:[30] 30
Do you wish to run something at successful update?[N] (y/N) N

New configuration file '/usr/local/etc/no-ip2.conf' created.

That’s pretty much it.
To see the status if it is active use the command noip2 -S

Have a great day!
