I am trying to install noip2. After following these instructions I have reached a roadblock.

How do I install the 'no-ip' package on 12.04?

When I type in make I receive the following error.

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

How do I fix this?

Have you changed to the package directory? Use cd:

tar -xzvf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
cd noip-2.1.9-1
sudo make install
sudo nano /etc/rc.local

Thanks Timo Kluck. It works! – jason328 Aug 1 '12 at 22:11

An alternative would be ddclient. It works fine in my setup with the no-ip service and it is in the Ubuntu repositories.
