Techopedia explains Dial Other Internet Providers (DOIP)

DOIP works like a standard Internet connection utility found in all IBM OS/2 version 3.0 (Warp) systems and above. It requires users to provide a series of connection details and login credentials before creating and dialing an account. Each unique dialup entry has four different layers of configuration including login info, connection info, server info and modem info. Most of the information required by DOIP was provided by the ISP to the user upon account signup. Users were able to configure multiple dialup accounts and a unique mail server associated with each account.
