What If I have multiple smpp connections to the same provider - basically I have 2 premium rate services (with different costs) but the destination numbers will be the same ie: I would want to sent to the same mobile on either smpp connection.

How can I pick the correct smpp connection when I submit the sms for delivery?

Hi Kevin,

There are two ways to do this.

1.) Associate a "Default Sender Address" with each SMPP connection. When you send a message and specify a sender that matches the "Default Sender Address" of a particular connection, we will route the message through the matching connection.

2.) In recent updates (, we added the following capability:

* SMS Gateway - Add the ability for HTTP message submissions to indicate that the message should be routed via a specific SMSC. The HTTP interface now supports "&SMSCRoute=xxxxx", where the value of this setting can be the name of a defined SMSC (e.g., "Bluetooth Modem" or "SMPP - a.b.c.d:xyz"), or it can be a route name that is defined to be associated with the SMSC. To define a route name for an SMSC, it is necessary to manually edit SMSGW.INI, and under the appropriate section header (e.g., [Modem - Bluetooth Modem] or [SMPP - a.b.c.d:xyz]), add RouteName=xxxxx.
