    HowTo/Create Your Own DynDNS service

    Index.py (Python-script) behind htaccess gets the IP from client via http and writes to /var/lib/noip/noip.log

    Get client IP[edit]


    import os
    # Required header that tells the browser how to render the text.
    print "Content-Type: text/plain\n\n"
    env = os.environ
    outline = "S23-dyndns service \nupdated \n%s.aus.fnordanien.com should resolve to %s within a minute" % (env["REMOTE_USER"], env["REMOTE_ADDR"])
    print outline
    handle = open("/var/lib/noip/noip.log", "a")
    line = env["REMOTE_USER"]+" "+env["REMOTE_ADDR"]+"\n"

    OR you can use a PHP script like this or any other cgi script:


    <title>S23 No-IP Service</title>
    $logfile = '/var/lib/noip/noip.log';
    echo "Hello $REMOTE_USER!<br /><br /> I will bind $REMOTE_USER.aus.fnordanien.com to $REMOTE_ADDR<br /><br />";
    echo "Is that your correct IP? Then you are done already.<br /><br />If not, update manually: <br />
    <form action=\"index.php\" method=\"POST\"><input type=\"text\" name=\"IP\" size=\"16\" />";
    echo "<input type=\"submit\" value=\"submit\" /></form><br /><br />";
    if ($_POST["IP"]) {
    $fp = fopen($logfile, "a");
    $string = "$REMOTE_USER $IP\n";
    echo "<br />Ok, writing your manual input $IP instead. Thank you. Please close the page.";
    $write = fputs($fp, $string);
    $fp = fopen($logfile, "a");
    $string = "$REMOTE_USER $REMOTE_ADDR\n";
    $write = fputs($fp, $string);

    Once you have the client IP this or that way:

    Update Bind[edit]

    update_dns.pl (Perl) script (cron'ed) updates bind.
