Hi. Bryce.

Hi alya,

Let me first talk about how you can submit a message to NowSMS and explicitly specify which SMSC connection should be used to send the message.

An HTTP parameter setting exists that can be used to explicitly route a message via a particular SMSC.

When a message is submitted via HTTP, the HTTP interface supports a parameter of "&SMSCRoute=xxxxx", where the value of this setting can be the name of a defined SMSC (e.g., "Bluetooth Modem" or "SMPP - a.b.c.d:xyz"). Or, rather than using the SMSC name, it can be a route name that is defined as associated with one or more SMSCs. To define a route name for an SMSC, it is necessary to manually edit SMSGW.INI, and under the appropriate section header (e.g., [Modem - Bluetooth Modem] or [SMPP - a.b.c.d:xyz]), add RouteName=xxxxx. It is possible for multiple SMSCs to share the same route name, meaning that if a message is submitted via HTTP with the "&SMSCRoute=xxxxx" parameter, it will be routed outbound over the first available SMSC that is configured with the RouteName=xxxxx setting.

Now let's talk about 2-way SMS considerations.

You can include an @@SMSCROUTE@@ replaceable parameter in your 2-way URL, and this will indicate which SMSC the message was received from (e.g., "Bluetooth Modem" or "SMPP - a.b.c.d:xyz" ... or the "RouteName=" value if you defined a route name in the SMSGW.INI as described above).

When you reply back to a message in a 2-way command, you would need to generate your reply using the "redirect" technique and include "&SMSCRoute=" in the redirect URL. (General redirect response technique described here: http://www.nowsms.com/support/bulletins/tb-nowsms-003.htm)
