1. 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?
That’s the 5-digit number inside the gray area to the right of the text box.

3. My USB Series can call out, but have difficulties receiving calls, why?
Your computer might have it’s own firewall 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.

4. How to disable the computer’s own firewall?
Steps to disable Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) on Microsoft Windows XP

1. Click Start in the Windows taskbar, and then click Control Panel.

2. Double-click Network Connections to open the Network Connections folder.

3. Double-click the Dial-up, LAN or High-Speed Internet connection that you are using. In the dialog box, click Properties.

4. From the Advanced tab, uncheck the Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet check box.

5. Click OK to save the setting, and then click Close to exit the dialog box.

5. What ports on the firewall need to be opened?
Those ports are TCP 1720, 1721, 1730, and UDP 1710, 1719, 1109, 6000, 6001.

6. My computer is online, and the server address in my setting is correct, but I still get the error message Error Messages ‘Check Server Address, Click 'Edit' button to edit’.
What should I do?
Completely exit the KIWITALK program. Disconnect the computer from the Internet. Then go online and try to log in to KIWITALK again.

If that doesn’t work, restart the computer and try again.

If still doesn’t work, re-install the KIWITALK software and try again.

Go to web page download the .exe file and save it to a folder.

9. After I successfully log into the KIWITALK server, then somehow the KIWITALK user window screen displays the message “Connection lost”.
What happen? What should I do?
That means the computer has been disconnected from the Internet. You need to completely exit the KIWITALK user window, make sure the computer has connection (check network cable line, use IE browser to test connectivity), then log into the KIWITALK server again.

10. Does KIWITALK support Windows NT OS?

11. I hear a dial tone from the phone and then dial the number, waited for a long time, no sound at all. However, the person I was calling said at the same time his phone rang, and he answered, but no sound at all. This situation happens quite frequently especially when my computer has been idle for a long time.
1. This situation happen is because your Windows screen is set to turn off the hard disks when it’s idling.

2. When this happen, you should first end the KIWITALK program. To do that, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete open the Windows Task Manager. Click on the Processes tab, find MyPhone.exe on the list, high light it, and click End Process to end the KIWITALK program.

3. To prevent this to happen again, you need to change the Windows screen setting. Right click on the monitor screen, select Properties. Click on the Screen Saver tab, click Power. Select “Never” for the Turn off hard disks: list box. Click Apply to save settings, and OK to exit. Now you can run the KIWITALK program again.

Yes, you can. To make sure you have the latest software go to to download and install the updated KIWITALK USB software.
