Hi,
Can admin view sms messages with content sent by users? I know all messages are stored in smsoutxxx file in the folder of Nowsms, but can we view through web interface?

Also there is no logout option in the web interface? How do we enable that for users?
Thanks

Hi Suvinay,

Yes, these log files can be viewed/retrieved via the web interface.

In the NowSMS configuration, on the page titled "Web", you need to "Enable Web Account Administration", and define a username/password for that account, and optionally any IP address restrictions for this access.

Connect to http://server:port/admin (server is the IP address or host name of your NowSMS service, port is the port number for the NowSMS web interface), and you will be prompted for this username and password.

Within that interface, there is an option from which log files can be accessed.

There is no logout option on the web interface because NowSMS uses WWW authentication. In this mode, the client actually sends it login details with every transaction. So the NowSMS server does not maintain a concept of a "session" for the user.

The web browser remembers the username/password, and does not prompt the user with each request.

The standard way that this works with web browsers is that the browser remembers this information until the browser is closed.

So, to "logout", it is necessary to close the browser.
