Receive this error while sending message to the SMSC

ERROR: Throttling error (ESME has exceeded allowed message limits

as the SMSC limit the throughput to 1 msg/sec.

is there anything by which we can overcome it like inducing a message delay on that particular connection to the SMSC or anything else....

Here is a setting that can be applied in NowSMS v5.51 or later. The following extract is from the readme.txt for v5.51:

* SMS Gateway: Add SMSGW.INI file settings to limit the speed at which messages are submitted to any of the defined SMSC interfaces. Under the section of the INI file that defines a particular SMSC connection (e.g., [SMPP - ip:port]), an SMSCSendLimit=x/y setting can be defined which specifies that the gateway will send no more than x messages per y seconds. If y is not specified, then the default is 1. For example, to limit a connection to 1 message every 5 seconds, specify SMSCSendLimit=1/5. To limit a connection to 3 messages per second, specify SMSCSendLimit=3 or SMSCSendLimit=3/1.

This means that it was not possible to make a TCP/IP connection to the configured HTTP proxy server.

I can only assume that the proxy server address is specified incorrectly. Use the following format:



... in both cases, 99999 refers to the port number on the proxy server.
