Impossible to register SIP account

0 votes

I keep getting request timeout (408) error messages.

I tried mobile data as well Wi-Fi connection and with and without Stun - to no avail.

The same configuration works just fine with cSIPsimple on Android. 

Just not in Zoiper on iPhone (and Android).

Error 408 is received when Zoiper can not connect to the VoIP server. There are two possibilities - the server can not receive the sent packages or Zoiper can not receive the answer from the server.

You can try to alter the STUN settings from Settings/Config -> Accounts -> Your registered account -> Network Settings.

Please also make sure that non of the ports used by Zoiper are blocked from your routing device or Firewall. The ports used by Zoiper are as follows:

SIP port is 5060
IAX port is 4569 UDP
RTP port is 8000 and above UDP

Default STUN values are:
Server hostname/IP:
Port: 3478 UDP/TCP
Refresh period: 30

If you using mobile internet connection, please contact your mobile connection provider.

I finally got it to log in properly.

Firewall and STUN settings were not at fault.

I had to specify TLS as the preferred transport method and indicate as a proxy in addition to it being the domain/registrar.
