Bug#210656: ITP: noip -- Dynamic DNS support using no-ip.com's service

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-09-12
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : noip
  Version         : 2.0.12

  Description     : Dynamic DNS support using no-ip.com's service

no-ip.com offers dynamic DNS service, which is ideal for users
of computers connected 24x7 using dynamic DHCP ip addresses.

The client periodically connects to no-ip.com's DNS servers and 
updates your domain name to point to your current temporary address.

no-ip.com offers FREE accounts if you use a subdomain of no-ip.com
(for example, vlm.no-ip.com)

For a minimal cost, no-ip.com also offers various other dynamic DNS 
related services, such as using your own domain name instead of using
one of no-ip's subdomains.

One good example of how to use this service, is to register your DSL
connected PC using no-ip.com.  Then, anywhere on the internet, you
can ssh to "yourname".no-ip.com, even if your DSL computer gets a 
new DHCP address.  No need to memorize today's DHCP address or wonder
if it has changed.
