Hello,
Just got installed 5.51 and 5.51k patch over it.

It seems like the program works fine with LogicaSMSC simulator in Java: messages are passing through, the delivery receipts are taken back and storing in logs and "SMS-IN" folder.

Then I added 3 different LIVE SMSCs with 100% the same parameters in SMSGW.INI file, and after submitting test messages, none of them got any response back from SMSC in terms of deliver_sm status.
The "SMS-IN" is empty.
One of my test SMSC was Clickatell, and I know for the sure that they send deliver_sm in 1-2 secs right after the submit_sm happens.

Question is: any explanation, why is your application does not get any receipts back from live SMSCs and what might be the reason of that?

++++ SMSGW.INI
SMPP - localhost:2347]
SMPPVersion=v3.4
UserName=*****
Password=*****
Receive=Yes
ReceiveMMS=No
UseSSL=No
ReceiveSingleConnection=Yes
DeliveryReceiptFlag=1
SenderAddressOverride=Yes
[SMSGW]
TrackSMPPReceipts=Yes
ReceiptRequested=Yes
Modem1=SMPP - localhost:2347
WebAuth=No
WebMenu=Yes
WebPort=8800
Debug=Yes
ReceiveSMS=No
ReceiveMMS=No

Binding as TRANSCEIVER.

Cheers,
Pavel

Hi

I guess you need to define the DR stuff as following in the SMSGW section and not in the individual connections:

[SMPP]
DeliveryReceiptFlag=1

Thank you. I think it really helped me out!

I should say that the program works just great now after having replaced the DR parameter with Clickatell SMPP, but no receipts are coming from the rest of SMSCs...which is strange though...

Hi

paste your updated SMSGW.INI file here.

I just checked my SMS-IN box and found several incoming messages from SMSCs.
So it seems like the problem is not with software, but with the slow response from SMSCs.

Thank you anyway for the support!

Just an additional comment.

Sam is correct about the following setting enabling delivery report requests for every message that is sent out via an SMPP SMSC:

[SMPP]
DeliveryReceiptFlag=1

The alternative to this setting is to explicitly request a delivery receipt when you want one by submitting a message with the delivery receipt requested flag set. (Via HTTP, this is done with "&ReceiptRequested=Yes" in the URL.)
