I am sorry for bad English (I translate(transport) with the help of the electronic translator).

As I can modify HTTP header (Host: and Useragent:-) sending entering SMS through 2way?
It is necessary for us, as the provider of a hosting demands presence of heading Host.

It is connected to that, that the hosting virtual and to get on a site it is impossible without presence of heading of the domain.

NowSMS should automatically generate any necessary "Host:" header.

I am not aware of any current situations where the "Host:" header is not generated.

But perhaps you are using an older version of NowSMS? (As I do see some issues where older versions did not include this header.)

If you are not currently running v5.51, please download the trial version of NowSMS from our web site to update. (If you have an existing serial number, this is a free update which recognises existing serial numbers.)

If you are running v5.51, or you update to v5.51 and the problem is still there, try downloading the patch update for v5.51 at http://www.nowsms.com/download/latestpatch.zip.

If you still experience a problem after updating, then please enable the SMSDEBUG.LOG (easiest to do this on the "Serial #" page of configuration), and repeat your attempt. Then post the SMSDEBUG.LOG, so that we can see what you are trying to do.

This one has had me stumped. But I finally noticed that the host name is included in the "GET" request.

This means that you have a 2-way SMS proxy server configured. (2WayProxy= setting in SMSGW.INI)

The "Host:" header is not present because you have a proxy server configured ... because it is not supposed to be present when a request is submitted to a proxy server.

When an HTTP request is submitted to a proxy server, the host name is included in the URL request. And it is the proxy server's responsibility to generate the "Host:" header when the proxy server makes the resulting HTTP connection.
