How can I install no-ip updater client on MyCloud?

Is it possible install no-ip updater client on mycloud?

I am not a Linux expert.

This is the tar gzip file, but the instruccion says that I need to compile


This is the instruction

  1. cd /usr/local/src
  2. wget
  3. tar xzf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
  4. cd no-ip-2.1.9
  5. make
  6. make install

If you get “make not found” or “missing gcc” then you do not have the gcc compiler tools on your machine.  You will need to install these in order to procede.

Read the README file in the no-ip-2.1.9 folder for instructions on how to make the client run at startup.  This varies depending on what Linux distribution you are running.


No make or make install needed! Ubuntu has a binary for the armhf architecture (which will work on the WD My Cloud)

You can find the binary inside this deb file here:

All you need is the noip2 binary that is inside. I’ve unpacked the deb file using 7zip on my windows machine and then uploaded the noip2 binary to the WD My Cloud using WinSCP. I’ve put it into /usr/local/bin

This binary will look for a conf file in /var/lib/noip2 but that directory does not exist, so create it first inside WinSCP and give it 755 permissions

Then log in via PuTTY or another SSH client and run the configuration: noip2 -C

It will ask you which interface (choose eth0)

Then your username and password

Then update interval and if you want to run anything

Then it writes the noip2.conf file into /var/lib/noip2

Afterwards, to start it run noip2

You can check it’s running by running: pidof noip2

To stop it: kill -15 with the proccessID you got from the pidof

HI ,

I did as you have proposed, but when ever I start noip2 -C I get Killed … 

Do you have any Idea what is the problem ?


Those binaries won’t work for WD v4 firmware which needs 64k pagesize patch.

Why not use the script?
