I am trying to send a (text) message to a j2me application using the simplewire API.

I try send ing thru the web interface using a GSM modem as the SMSC, the app was able to pick up the message on the port (3E80 - 16000), however, when I connected to my GSM operator SMSC, and I tried the same thing, the message when straight to my inbox.

Pls, what are the necessary things to add or set up while setting up NOWSMS to an SMSC in order to send to a specific port?

I assume you are connecting via SMPP.

Different SMS service providers have different ways of accepting message attributes like destination port information.

By default, NowSMS encodes the destination port in the UDH (user data header) field of the message, using a GSM specific format ... in the way that it would actually be encoded going over the air.

However, your provider might not want you to use UDH, they might want to use the destination_port field in the "optional TLV" parameters. There is a configuration setting under "Advanced Settings" when defining an SMPP connection to NowSMS which allows you to set this option.

If that doesn't work, you may have to ask your operator how they want the destination port to be specified.
