We would like to route SMS messages messages which are sent to the number of the SIM card in our GSM modem to an application via SMPP.

I have set up 2 SMSC Connections (One is the GSM modem, the other is SMPP connection to the application).

I tried the routing properties but can't get it to work.

Could you give me instructions on how to do it. We are using version v5.51k.

Hi Owen,

It sounds like you are initiating a bind from NowSMS to the SMPP application (NowSMS is the client, the SMPP application is the server).

It is much easier to do what you describe if the SMPP application initates the SMPP bind (application is the client, NowSMS is the server).

When NowSMS is the server, then all you have to do is configure the setting for the "Properties" of the modem on the SMSC list to route received messages to the local user account that the SMPP application is using to bind to the NowSMS server with. (This user account is defined on the "SMS Users" page.)

If it is not possible for the application to initiate the bind ... then there is still a way, but it is more complicated.

The feature is described in the following statement from the readme file ... just note that this explanation talks about 2 or more outbind SMPP connections. If it is a modem and an outbind SMPP connection it still applies, you would just edit the [Modem - driver name] section of SMSGW.INI for the modem.


SMS Gateway: Add support for configuration where NowSMS can transparently route SMS messages between 2 or more outbind SMPP connections. Configuration allows for SMS messages received via one outbind SMPP connection to be routed out via another outbind SMPP connection. (Outbind SMPP connections are SMPP connections where NowSMS initiates the connection, i.e., SMPP connections defined in the "SMSC" list.) Configuration of this type of setup requires manual editing of the SMSGw.INI file. For an SMPP connection that is receiving SMPP messages, under the [SMPP - host:port] header, add ReRouteReceived=xxxxx, where RouteName=xxxxx is defined under the [SMPP - host:port] header for the SMPP connection through which the received messages should be routed. (Note: To route received messages via any outbound route, specify ReRouteReceived=any.)
