different if the portal password has been changed in the past. If you're not sure about your Main SIP/IAX password,

3. On the host screen, fill the Hostname or Provider with any of our servers, i.e. atlanta.voip.ms then click on Next.

You can check what VoIP server is your VoIP number using, from your VoIP.ms customer portal 
at DID Numbers>> Manage DIDs, under POP column.

otherwise, incoming calls won't ring.

Select the one you prefer according to your network's settings, i.e. SIP UDP then click on the Finish button.

Note 3: If all these options show "Not found" but the Hostname is fine, just click Finish.

If you chose TLS please refer to section 2.3 for some extra adjustments, only if they are needed. When choosing TLS, Zoiper should adjust these parameters automatically.

6. Done, at this point your VoIP.ms account should be shown under Accounts section and marked on Green with a tick arrow next to it. This means your softphone is ready to start placing calls. In case of failure, your account will be marked on Red and will display an error code. You can have more information about this error and how to fix it from section 3.2.

main account at Main Menu>> Account Settings>> General tab>> Caller ID Number. If you're using a sub account at

Extra settings

Audio codecs

In order to use only supported codecs by VoIP.ms, please go to Settings>> Accounts>> Your account.

Click to enlarge


Scroll down to Audio Codec Settings, and just enable "uLaw" and "GSM". You can touch over any codec and move it to the top of the list in order to change priority order. We suggest keeping "uLaw" at the top. In case, you have bought "g729" make this your first option and move it right to the top.

For best results, it is recommended to use WI-FI. But if using 4G/LTE and you experience poor sound quality, it has been reported that turning off ECHO CANCELLATION helps solve the issue.

Network settings

In order to have your softphone running all the time, proceed with the following steps:

1. Go to Settings>> Connectivity and enable "Keep Alive WIFI" and "Run in Background".

Call Encryption TLS/SRTP

If you want to use call enryption along with Zoiper please follow these steps:

1. Make sure your Main account or sub-account has "Encrypted SIP Traffic" enabled.

Bear in mind, if this setting is enabled and your device sends UDP/TCP, RTP or video codec information 
you will be rejected with error code 488.

Enable this setting for the Main Account at Main Menu>> Account settings>> Advanced tab.

For a sub-account enable it at Sub accounts>> Manage sub-accounts by clicking on the orange icon with a pen and finally click at "Advanced Options (Click here to display)".

Click to enlarge


2. Now that your account/sub-account has this setting enabled, your device only needs to send TLS and SRTP.

To send TLS, go to Settings>> Accounts>> Your account and type:

Note: When using TLS is very important to specify the number of the server, in case the server's name doesn't have the number "1" included, you need to add it. Adding any of the SIP ports 5061/5081/42873 at the end of the Hostname is also required.

Now scroll down and look for Network settings and change the "Transport mode" to TLS.

Finally to send SRTP, go back to your account settings and at "Encryption settings" enable SRTP.

Your account should be shown as registered and when you place a call you will see a closed padlock, which means the call is now secure.

You can also check if Zoiper is fully registered and using SIP-TLS protocol from your customer portal at Home page, Main menu>> Portal Home for each account/sub account registered or at Sub Accounts>> Manage Sub accounts tab to see all of your Sub Accounts registration status.

Bear in mind this feature is in BETA phase and we can't guarantee will work all the time.
Note: If your SIP device is offline, undelivered SMS will be trying to reach it during the next 24 hours after 
they were received. After this time, they won't be delivered in your SIP device BUT they won't be lost.

those options as "Not found" in red. However, you can choose your desired selection and hit Finish.
