I am looking for a way to remotely monitor the status of a SMSC bind on a particular server. I saw a post in 2004 telling the individual to use event viewer. Has any progress been made on this issue? If not, might I suggest adding SNMP mibs to the program?

SNMP would be a good addition. We don't have any support for that. But we did recently add the ability to send e-mail alerts. (In fact, I noticed that it was documented incorrectly in http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/5972.html, so I just went and corrected it.)

Basically, the following settings can be defined under the [SMSGW] header in SMSGW.INI:

AlertEMailRecip=user@domain.com

(v5.51d+) This setting enables e-mail sending of alerts that would normally be written to the Windows event log.

Forwarding alerts to an e-mail address requires that the MMSC service be activated (because it includes an SMTP mailer), and that an "SMTP Relay Host" be defined (the server will connect to this SMTP server every time it has a message to send, so if you are just using it for alerts, specify your SMTP mail server).

Only one e-mail address can be specified here.

AlertEMailSendInfo=No

(v5.51d+) This setting disables "informational" alerts, which include start-up / shut-down events, and reconnection to an SMSC after failure. By default, these alerts are enabled when the AlertEMailRecip setting is non-blank.

AlertEMailSendWarning=No

(v5.51d+) This setting disables "warning" alerts, including accounts over quota and message delivery failures. By default, these alerts are enabled when the AlertEMailRecip setting is non-blank.

AlertEMailSendError=No

(v5.51d+) This setting disables "error" alerts, including SMSC or modem off-line errors, and TCP/IP port allocation problems. By default, these alerts are enabled when the AlertEMailRecip setting is non-blank.

AlertEMailSender=user@domain.com

(v5.51d+) Specifies the sender ("From:") address for alert e-mails.

P.S. - I should also mention that these features are in v5.51d and later. Currently this is available only as a patch update for NowSMS v5.51.

The latest patch can be downloaded from http://www.nowsms.com/download/latestpatch.zip. It is a ZIP file that is used to update files in an existing v5.51 installation.
