noip2 & IP address


I have installed the noip2 client to update my dynamic address. I now have a problem with it on startup.

I have entered it in /etc/init.d/boot.local. After startup it is running ok, however it is not updating the noip site. If I do "noip2 -S" the IP address it's sending is

If I kill & restart the address is ok. So the question... Is boot.local the wrong place? Is the network running fully at this time during boot? Is there a better place to autostart this utility?

I half half answered my own question. Investigating the startup log shows boot.local BEFORE the initialisation of eth1 & eth2. So it looks like this is the wrong place.

So which scripts are executed after the network cards are initialised, & which is the most appropriate to use?
