No-IP.com would like to announce two new third party update clients that support our services. For the Unix and Linux crowd, RunDNS is a versatile client that runs on just about every flavor of Unix. For the Windows users, Rcon Software has developed myDynIPPro version 2.8.5 to support No-IP.com’s services and can be found at this link.
Keep in mind due to the number of third party update clients, No-IP does not provide support for third party update clients and software.
Version 3.1.1 of the Mac OSX No-IP DUC (Dynamic Update Client) has been released today. This is a recommended update for all Mac OSX users. The DUC is now stable under Mac OSX Tiger. It also corrects issues with the daemon feature.
Visit our Mac downloads page to grab the latest version.
Like many of you this weekend I woke up to hundreds of German spam messages in my Junk mail box. This is due to a very fast spreading variant of the Sober worm (Sober.Q).
Check out this article over at Yahoo news:
If you are using the No-IP POP3 service. A spam hit level of about 7 seems to block out the majority of these. A lower number will insure that most of them reach your junk folder.
Today we added a new guide to our Support section of our site. The new guide discusses using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop (RDP) application with No-IP.com’s services. We also re-vamped our Alternate Port SMTP setup guide for Microsoft Exchange. The changes to the Alternate Port SMTP guide address configuration changes when using the Small Business Server edition of Exchange. You can view both of the guides here.
We love to receive feedback from our users. If you have any suggestions for new guides that should be added to our knowledge base or have a contribution of your own drop us a line by commenting on this blog or opening a support trouble ticket.
In case you missed the article in PC Magazine, No-IP.com was mentioned in an article on how to remotely access your computer over the Internet. The PC magazine article can be found over at ABC news by clicking here. Accessing your computer using remote access software such as VNC, PCAnywhere or Remote Desktop is a common use for No-IP.com’s services, especially when most ISP’s use hard to remember dynamic IP addresses.
The article explains how to access one computer remotely with our No-IP Free service, but also keep in mind that you can remotely manage and access multiple computers using No-IP’s Enhanced and Plus Managed DNS services.
