Idefisk is a VoIP client that supports IAX/IAX2 (for people running Asterisk) and SIP. It comes with an address book and call history log.

Note: Idefisk has been rebranded ZoIPer with two different versions: Free and Biz. From an email I received from Mike, it appears so many features have been stripped from ZOIPER Free that one is better off sticking with Idefisk. As such, I am making my copy available for direct download.

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder. However, it always create file association entries in the registry, so it is not stealth.
Stealth: ? No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice.
  2. Remove $PLUGINSDIR and NSIS.nsi.
  3. Launch Idefisk 2 Free.exe.

i'm involved in the development of this phone.
If wanted, we could make an option in the config file not to put anything in the registry. The file associations are to make it easier to auto configure it, by importing settings when clicking on a special config file.

I do not like the registry myself, thats why most of it is in xml instead, so we could add an option in those xml files not to store anything in the registry.

please contact us at idefisk at

OK, I will update the "Write settings to" field to clarify this point.

"...Doesn't really affect portability if you don't use file association"

But if it leaves any traces then it's not really portable. There are a lot of applications that were not accepted or were removed from this site for that reason.

If any traces are left on the computer, it should be mentioned.
"Writes settings to: Windows registry. I am accepting it as portable..."

These are the registry entries written by Idefisk:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AsteriskGuru.idefisk\DefaultIcon\: "C:\Temp\Idefisk_Free_2.0_RC1_Installer\Idefisk 2 Free.exe,0"
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AsteriskGuru.idefisk\DefaultIcon\: "C:\Temp\idefisk\Idefisk 2 Free.exe,0"
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AsteriskGuru.idefisk\Shell\Open\Command\: ""C:\Temp\Idefisk_Free_2.0_RC1_Installer\Idefisk 2 Free.exe" "account_file=%1""
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AsteriskGuru.idefisk\Shell\Open\Command\: ""C:\Temp\idefisk\Idefisk 2 Free.exe" "account_file=%1""

Doesn't really affect portability if you don't use file association.
