FYI, SMSGW.INI setting :
[SMSGW]
Modem1=MTK GPRS USB Modem
ConfigurationUpdateTriggerRestart=20110122171409
WebAuth=No
WebMenu=Yes
WebPort=8800
ReceiveSMS=Yes
ReceiveMMS=No
ReceiveSMSCharset=utf-8


I prefer to log files recorded in TEXT (readable text), not BINARY.

Please guide me for some setting.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Steven

Hi Steven,

Historically, NowSMS wrote binary data to the log whenever sending any messages that required Unicode encoding.

This was changed beginning with 2009 releases, so that UTF-8 encoding is used for detailing message text in the log files.

Hi Des,

I'm not sure what you means.

I'm not clear, I just want to know, why from my sample of log files, some rows contains in TEXT and some rows contains in BINARY ?

Is it bugs in 2008.06.03 ?

or you means this problem is resolved in version 2009?

Is it possibly to solve it?

please give me a clear answer.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Steven

Hi Steven,

No, it is not a bug.

This is the way that NowSMS wrote the log files for several years.

If an SMS message was sent out using Unicode format, the logging function recorded the binary data of the Unicode message.

Similarly, if the message contained User Data Header (long text messages), it was also considered to be a binary message, and was logged as such.

This behaviour was changed beginning with 2009 versions because customers did not like this, and wanted to see the messages recorded in the logs in text format.
