Hi Alston,

What server status are you wanting to watch? I assume that you are asking about monitoring a server other than NowSMS.

There are various tools that can monitor different types of server, and run a program to cause an alert if a problem is detected. (I've heard a lot of people mention a product called WhatsUp, but I've never used it myself.)

Often with these types of utilities, they have the ability to either run a command, or send an e-mail when a problem is detected.

You could configure NowSMS to receive e-mail and route it to SMS, but it's probably easier to do this type of integration with a command line interface.

An example of how to send an SMS via NowSMS with a command line interface can be found at the following thread:
