Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve touched on the No-IP Mac OSX client. You can grab a copy of the beta over at http://www.no-ip.com/downloads.php?page=mac .
This version mainly focuses on bug fixes regarding newer versions of OS X such as Snow Leapord.
Changes to the Mac OSX Client:
- Improved Daemon Functionality
- Standardized Drag and Drop Installer
- Utilizes New Logos
- And More
Let us know if you run into any issues. We will also be re-writing the Mac Client from the ground up in the near future. If you have any feature requests let us know as we are in the planning stages for the next version 3.2.
Want to use a third party update client that restricts the length of your current No-IP account email address? Perhaps you just want a shorter username to login to the website with? Yes it’s about time, we’ve gone Web 1.0 and introduced No-IP account usernames in addition to email address based logins.
Many users have requested this feature. Some hardware vendors that have embedded our dynamic dns services into their product have hard coded a fixed length of characters for the username field. Some third party vendors that have been brought to our attention seem to cut them off at about 16. Many email addresses are longer than this, so we just want to give our users the option.
Create your username today! You’ll also be prompted when to create one when you first login if you don’t have one assigned to your account.
