Russel Hanneken (<>) asked for this package.
I first used the FreeBSD package, and made some changes.
Russel says it works great.
Btw i followed the FreeBSD strategy that creates a user, but i didn't make
the rc.d file aware of that (runs as root).

This is a port of's dynamic DNS update client.  When
configured correctly, the client will check the local IP address at a
given time interval for any changes.  If the local IP address has
changed it will notify the DNS servers at and update the IP
corresponding to your No-IP/No-IP+ hostname.
