Well i just downloaded the NowSms 5.0. i have installed and configured it correctly.

I use HTTP webinterface, the problem is i dont know how i should replace http://127.0.0.1:8800/. can you please tell me the URL for sending sms.

I'm a first time user and i have no information about this so please explain me in detail.

I use a proxy and the port is 8080, my location is saudi arabia.

Thank you...

http://213.181.179.15:8080/ i also tried to connect to this address which was in the webinterface IP menu, but until now its been 2 days and it still says TCP/IP processing failure.

Condition TCP error was detected while attempting to retrieve the URL: 'http://213.181.179.15:8080/'.

Can anyone please help!!!

First question, before we go too far with this ... I want to confirm that you realise that in order to actually send an SMS message requires that you either have a GSM modem attached to your PC, or you need a subscription to an SMS service provider.

This has nothing to do with the problem that you are currently experiencing, I just point this out as it is a frequent point of confusion with new users.

Assuming that the "Port number for web interface" specified on the "Web" page of the NowSMS configuration dialog is set to "8800", then you would access it as "http://127.0.0.1:8800" from the local PC.

(This is also assuming that "IP Address for web interface" is set to "(all available)" on that same configuration dialog.)
