I found a thread here http://www.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/7944.html and i've tried the command
http://127.0.0.1:8800/?user=username&password=password&phonenumber=1,2,3,4,5&tex t=@@SENDER@@/@@FULLSMS@@

But it just doesnt forward to the number i set in the command.
I dont know which part i did wrongly.

p/s: i noticed the "text" are typed "tex t" is that on purpose or it has to be like that? I copied the command from that thread listed above

Hi,

The discussion board software that we use here adds spaces to some long URLs. There is not supposed to be any spaces in the URL.

I assume you have a working installation of NowSMS that can send SMS.

Have you tried other 2-way commands ... are you sure that your system is actually receiving messages?

"username" and "password" are valid for an account defined under "SMS Users" on your system??

I usually start troubleshooting by asking people to enable the SMSDEBUG.LOG (checkbox on "Serial #" page) ... send in another message, and the SMSDEBUG.LOG shows the actual URL that NowSMS tried to connect to, and what happened.

If you want to enable the SMSDEBUG.LOG and then post it in reply here, that would be helpful.

Hi Des,

Here is the initial log, which i found that 127.0.0.1 has connection error, so i have changed the command to pointing to the gateway host instead.
application/x-zip-compressedSMSDEBUG.LOG
SMSDEBUG.zip (78.9 k)


I have glanced thru (in the initial log) and found the sms replied to NowSMS gateway has been received by the modem.

From the device i replied to the gateway, i received an sms from gateway with content "command not completed. request returned invalid content type: text/html"

I can see the sms successfully received by modem, and web login accepted, but its still failed.

Do i need to specify anything when replying sms to gateway?

Edit the 2-way command and uncheck "Command returns response text".

Ah ... and I see the other problem ...

Edit your 2-way command URL so that the phone number that you are forwarding to starts with "%2B" instead of "+". A quick of URL encoding requirements is that "+" means " " (space character) in a URL, so to encode a "+", you need to specify "%2B".

Hi Des,

Cool its working perfectly now.

Is there a way to customise the @@SENDER@@ to show name instead of mobile number?

Another question.

How do i need to set the command to execute auto forward to mobile number specified by the sender sms sent to the gateway?

sms eg. "+60123549107 this is test sms"
Gateway will receive the sms and forward the content to the above specified number.

I found @@RECIP@@ command but not sure how to set it.

Next question.

This is regarding "mailto:@@SMSPREFIX@@" command that im trying to route sms to email.

The question is, will it work if i use "@domain.com" as the prefix?
SMS would sound like "user@domain.com this is test sms"

Im trying to configure it without using wildcard *,with minimal configuration in the gateway (creating local SMS user account), and having option for sender to choose whether they want to forward the sms to specified mobile number or specified email address.
Something like "+60123549107 this is test sms" and "user@domain.com this is test sms" which will be forwarded to the receiver as specified.

Let me rephrase if that was too confusing.

What i need is when sms ""+60123549107 this is test sms" is received, it will be processed so that it will forwarded to the mentioned mobile number.
And "user@domain.com this is test sms" received will be forwarded to the mentioned email address.

What kind of prefix and execute command should i use?

Not with a GSM modem. When using a GSM modem, the sender id is always inserted automatically by the mobile operator.

Some SMS providers allow some flexibility in using alternate sender addresses (using protocols other than GSM modem). Using a name instead of a number is commonly known as "alphanumeric sender". This is not supported as widely as it once was as more countries and mobile operators have rules and regulations requiring valid sender addresses.

Gateway will receive the sms and forward the content to the above specified number.

I found @@RECIP@@ command but not sure how to set it.




In this case, the phone number would be the SMS command prefix, as it is the first word of the message.

@@SMSPREFIX@@ would have this first word ... and @@SMS@@ would have the remainder of the SMS text.

@@RECIP@@ is the phone number for which the message was received, in this case the phone number of the GSM modem. This value is only set for a GSM modem if the "Phone Number" property is manually applied in the configuration.

You can use a wildcard in the pattern ... it could be either "*@domain.com" or "*@*" if you want to capture e-mail address.

Hi Des,

I still dont understand how to use @@SMSPREFIX@@ command to forward sms to mobile.

Is this how the command should be?

sorry the log doesnt comes out..

Anyhow, i tested again by sending sms using "00" instead of "+" as the command prefix.

But i prefer to use + instead as not to confuse the sender when typing the mobile number

The log is posting fine ... I can read it.

It looks like the message is being sent out ok.

If it is not being received, maybe there is some other problem.

Are you able to send simple test text messages from the NowSMS web interface?

Hi Des,

Okay, its solved when i test again this morning.

Next question.
http://10.40.3.6:8800/?user=klwke&password=aaaa&phonenumber=@@SMSPREFIX@@&text=From@@SENDER@@/@@SMS@@
Is there a way not to hardcode the username and password in the command string?
So sender must provide their username in the sms, and possibly if the user account is not found, gateway will reply with a reject confirmation?

You'd have to write your own script to handle a more complex scenario.

A PHP script example that parses individual words from a received SMS can be found here:

http://www.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/24891.html

If you use this approach, instead of having your script return a response, you'd want to have your script issue a new HTTP request to NowSMS to send a message. The following recent thread discusses our sendsms.php example script:

http://www.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/25070.html

Admittedly, this is all quite a bit more complicated than what you're working with right now ... and this might initially add some confusion ...
