Same as Averageman’s situation, the external IP of my house is also dynamically allocated. I also need a dynamic DNS. We use pcDuino as the noip client to report the IP of the house as a regular IP will consume a lot of electricity.

Extract the downloaded source file ball:
$tar vzxf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
Compile and install:
It will ask for login credentials during the installation process:
In the final step, it will set the IP address acquired.
