This is our guide to set up Zoiper version 3 under Windows. We plan to update this guide as newer versions are released in the event that the setup changes. You may also look only at the screenshots album.
Zoiper Main Window

Zoiper offers a simple and easy New Account Creation Wizard. To access it, choose Settings, then "Create a new account" as shown below.
Zoiper: Create a new account

First, the Wizard will prompt you to choose the account type. Though we can offer other setups, leave the default as SIP and click the green arrow NEXT.

The Wizard will next prompt you for your account credentials, which you can always obtain after logging in under the My Services tab, as explained in our Setup page, or from your Welcome Email. Enter YourUserID, YourPassword and YourDomain.

Press NEXT when done, and the Wizard will ask you to name the account. The name is what you will see in the top left corner if you have more than one account and has no other bearing on the functionality, so you may name it anything you want. Unless you are setting up the account without Internet access, it is a good idea to let the program do its auto-detection, so leave Skip.. unchecked.

Click NEXT and if your account is active and there has been no typo, the account will register and will be active.

You may also set up the account (or fine tune your settings) from Settings - Preferences.

In particular, you might want to set the Caller ID Name to what you want people to see on their display when you call them.

(Optional) You might also want to restrict the available codecs, under the Codec tab, to only u-Law and GSM and G.729 (if available in your version).

Zoiper should now be ready to make outgoing calls. 

Zoiper Advanced settings for incoming calls

If you have a phone number (DID) with us, you might want to change a few more settings to insure you can receive incoming calls. Under Accounts, in the Advanced tab, you might want to change the "Registration expiry" from the default 3600 to 120 or 180. Enable "Keep alive" as well as "Subscribe presence" and "Publish presence".

If the account does not register, please be sure to check for typos before contacting us.
