Command line update for No-IP and Dyn DDNS Update API

Project description

noipy: DDNS update tool

Command line tool to update DDNS hosts IP address via update API. Initially the tool was designed to update IP address only on No-IP DDNS provider. But now noipy has support for the following DDNS providers:


To install noipy, simply:

$ pip install noipy


Basic usage of noipy command line tool:

$ noipy -u <your username> -p <your password> -n <your hostname on DDNS provider>
        --provider {noip|dyn|duck}

For DuckDNS provider, the command line would look like this:

$ noipy -u <your token> -n <your DuckDNS domain> --provider duck

Or you can just use --hostname (-n) and --provider arguments if you have previously stored login information with --store option.

$ noipy --hostname <your hostname on DDNS provider> --provider {noip|dyn| duck}

If --provider option is not informed, noip will be used as provider.

It is also possible to inform an IP address other than the machine’s current:

$ noipy --hostname <your hostname on DDNS provider>

For details:

$ noipy --help

Storing auth information

With --store option it is possible to store login information. The information is sotred in $HOME/.noipy/ directory:

$ noipy --store --username <your username> --password <your password> \
    --provider {noip|dyn| duck}

Or simply:

$ noipy --store --provider {noip|dyn| duck}

And type username and password when required.

Note: password is stored simply encoded with Base64 method and is not actually encrypted!
