Yes, the solution is discussed in that thread that you reference.

Adapting the work-around described in that thread to your situation, it would work like this:

In the WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC directory, you'll find a file named HOSTS.

Edit this file, and add the following entries: smpp1.smsc smpp2.smsc smpp3.smsc smpp4.smsc

(Instead of, put in the IP address of

In NowSMS, rather than configuring the IP address of the SMSC, specify the phony host name that was added to the HOSTS file. So SMSC definition #1 would point to "smpp1.smsc". SMSC definition #2 would point to "smpp2.smsc". SMSC definition #3 would point to "smpp3.smsc". SMSC definition #4 would point to "smpp4.smsc". The HOSTS file would resolve all to the same IP address.
