I am trying to use NowSMS with a CIMD-2 server, but this cimd-2 server requires a network /operator selection, this does not have to be correct, it will be routed to the correct one.

I know this is an extension to the normal cimd operation, but for some reason infospace/gin (netherlands) requires this when using their cimd.

Is there any way to accomplish this and eventually other parameters (100:networkid, 064:cost).

Hi Jean-Paul,

We have added a variety of settings for supporting additional parameters in HTTP and SMPP environments ... and some limited extra parameters for UCP/EMI environments. However, to date, we haven't done anything for extra parameter support in CIMD2 environments.

So I'm wondering if we might be able to do something similar for CIMD2.

It would be relatively easy to add a setting to insert extra parameters into each message submission if they were fixed. For example to have every message go out with the same "100:networkid 064:cost" values in it.

It would be more involved to add support for allowing these values to be specified in the HTTP request and routed through to CIMD2. But we could probably implement it in a way similar to our "SMPPOptions" support for the optional TLV parameters that can be specified in an SMPP environment.

So I guess the question is ... could you get by with fixed parameter settings, or do you need to be able to define them dynamically?

Hi Bryce,

Static parameters will do for now.

The cost one is not an issue at this point, but that would have to be a dynamic one or it would not have much purpose I think.

Hi Jean-Paul,

Ok. Let's start small and prove the concept first.

Give me a few days, and we'll put together an update that can accept some additional static parameters.

Follow-up ...

I've uploaded an update for one of the DLLs to facilitate adding extra static CIMD parameters to a CIMD message submission.

You can download it at http://www.nowsms.com/download/jpvdp.zip.

The updated DLL will most likely only work with the NowSMS 2006 version, not with earlier versions.

If you manually edit SMSGW.INI, under the [CIMD - a.b.c.d:xyz] header, you can add:

ExtraSubmitParms=100:networkid 064:cost

And this will cause those parameters to be appended to every submit requests.

If this works ok for your needs, then we can look at adding support for additional parameters to be specified in HTTP submissions.
