Hi, is it possible for the gateway to perform multiple commands when an sms message arrives? I want to set up an autoresponder so that when a message comes in with a command prefix the sender gets a message sent back and NowSMS also writes the data to an Excel file or Access table.
Any ideas?

When an SMS message is received, NowSMS can be configured to pass the details of the received message to a 2-way command.

When interfacing with other applications, it is best to use HTTP commands in the 2-way facility.

When NowSMS receives an SMS message, it then triggers an HTTP request to a script that is running on another web server, passing details about the received message.

This script can be written in whatever web environment that you are most familiar with ... for example, it might be PHP, ASP, Perl. And the process of interfacing the received SMS into your database is very similar to what you would do to process a posting from a web form.

There are some examples here:

None of these examples include any examples of database interfacing, as everyone's database is different. But basically if you can process input from a web page into your database, this is very similar to how you would process a received SMS.
