There are a few DDNS services already integrated into the web interface for DD-WRT, but my favorite, [1] isn't one of them. While I could easily run's Dynamic Update Client to keep my domain name in sync with my WAN IP address one of my desktop machines, I'd much rather have it running on the router. This wiki will show you how to set it up to automatically run on startup.


You should already have:
-a Linksys WRT54G product
-DD-WRT installed as the firmware
-SCP or some other way to copy files to and from your desktop setup
-a account you'd like to synchronise
-some knowledge of using ipkg to install packages
If your running Windows on your desktop:
-TextPad or Win32Pad
(or other *nix friendly text editor. DO NOT USE NOTEPAD)


Install the NOIP ipkg package

-Find the noip package in the OpenWRT Package Tracker.
You will need the URI of package to install it.
I used -telnet or ssh shell into the router -run the command ipkg install -d dest_name URI of package
dest_name should be root to install to /jffs dest_name should be ram to install to /tmp *Remember, /tmp is deleted on router reboot* Ex: ipkg install -d ram

Editing the noip.config file

More to come once I get my router un-fsk'd


Load on router startup
