Hi,

Sorry, no it cannot.

At least it cannot listen for incoming SMS that get routed to the 2-way command facility.

It can route messages received via HTTP to an "SMS Users" account, where that account might retrieve the messages via SMPP. The way that it does this is that when you define an "SMS Users" account, you can define that particular phone numbers (or a pattern mask of phone numbers that include * and ? wildcards) should get routed via this account. Whenever NowSMS sees a message being submitted to a phone number that matches this field (even if submitted via HTTP), NowSMS routes it to the queue for this "SMS Users" account so that the message can be picked up by an SMPP client.

I suppose if you could configure NowSMS to connect to itself on that account via SMPP to receive messages, but that would be somewhat complex and confusing to configure.

Hi Bryce...
Thank's for the reply.
as the feature wish ,"could you add http smsc for recieve incoming sms, and make it flexsible to add user define parameter's. Let say for the to number we can use 'To' or 'Phonenumber' or 'Msisdn' and can add new parameter like 'Serviceid' ...etc....could you? I wish ;-)"

thank's

Hi Alya,

I have one question. How would you suggest that NowSMS identify that the message is inbound coming from an SMSC as opposed to outbound coming from a client application?

That is one of the dilemas that has prevented us from implementing this ... granted, we haven't thought about it too hard ... but I would appreciate any suggestions.

hi bryce...
about http connection?
right now nowsms have implement two function, as sms gateway (default port : 8800)
and as mms server (default port 80). to handle incoming sms from http connection, we should implement http server function (we need new port:xxx).
for simple :
inbound sms http connection : via new port : xxx
outbound sms http connection : via default port : 8800
