I have installed the Nowsms in a computer that connects to Internet by means of router. I have configured the ports of the router and the firewall of the computer. When I try to access to the program since others external computer its says to me: Mistake 403 You needs to iniciate session from the computer. I´m using dyndns. When I use dyndns whith others aplications this doesn´t happen. I really want use the Nowsms but i have this problem (error 403)Can I solve this?

Hi Edgar,

That error doesn't sound like one that would be generated by NowSMS itself.

NowSMS will return 403 errors if you have configured IP Address restrictions on the "Web" page of its configuration dialog, and you attempt to connect from an IP address that is not in an allowed range.

Can you connect ok from the local machine using 127.0.0.1:port#?

What if you try connecting to the IP address directly (for a test) instead of using the dynamic DNS name ... that might help determine where the problem lies.

Already I have solved it, it was a problem of permissions.

Thank you
