Hi,

I want to serve as a some kind of SMSC to another service provider that will be interfacing with me. The issue is that I need to pass any incoming traffic to an specific short number that is currently bind to my nowSMS gateway. After receiving the msg i need to foward it to the service provider SMS gateway and when he response back I need to foward the message to the correspondent SMSC. How can I achieve that?

Hi Carlos,

In general terms, it depends on whether you want to use HTTP or SMPP to interface with this other provider.

To use HTTP, you would route messages to the provider using 2-way commands. Define a 2-way command with an "SMS Command Prefix" of "*" ... and "Receive Phone Number(s)" = their short code. Any messages you receive addressed to that short code would trigger this 2-way command and you could deliver them to that provider using HTTP.

If they want to reply, they could either use the built-in 2-way command facility and return a text response directly to the HTTP request ... or they could issue a new HTTP request back to NowSMS to send a message.

Alternatively, you could use SMPP. They would see you as an SMPP server. Enable the SMPP Server on the "Web" tab of the NowSMS configuration settings. Define an "SMS Users" account for the provider, and enable SMPP login for the account. Define their short code(s) in the "Recipient address(es) to route to this user" field of the "SMS Users" account. This means that if NowSMS receives any messages addressed to this short code/phone number, it delivers them to this SMPP client account. The other provider interfaces to you via SMPP to receive these messages and to send back any responses.

Bryce,

Thanks, I just went with the second option but the smpp user can send me messages but he can't receive any messages ; I put on his SMS USERS -- recipient address the SN 62819; remove any 2-way references to the 62819... where can I see if a message has been forwarded?

Hi,

I'm the peer that is trying to send the SMS through to Carlos.

The problem seems to relate to an IP address that is appearing in Carlos' logs which varies from message to message. The relevant part of the line in the log file looks like this ...

OK -- SMPP - xx.xx.xxx.xx:xxxx

The address in the message is not mine and I am not setting anything to anything that even looks like it. The examples Carlos has sent to me show 2 different numbers. One is his server's IP and the other is close but different.

Where does this number in the log file come from?

Thanks,
Ian
