After I changed my password, my KIWITALK
phone can’t make calls out, but
still can received calls, what happened?
If you change your Password in your online
account while your KIWITALK
is still logged on, you won’t be able
to make calls out, but you can still receive
calls. So you need to log out of your KU
Series phone before going into your online
account to change the password.
2. I tried to log into my online account,
and I entered my IP Phone Number and Password.
But on the third line, it asks me “Enter
the numbers as it appears aside”,
what is that?

placed on the Internet connection, especially
Windows XP. Firewalls normally won’t
affect out going calls, but may obstruct
incoming calls. KIWITALK
can penetrate most firewalls, but certain
ports on the Firewall need to be opened.
