Hi Amaal

first go to the Web tab and check Enable SMPP server and then mention a port number for SMPP server.
then go to users tab and add a new user.
check enable SMPP for this user.
and then check Route received messages to user via SMPP.
You can also restrict to specific IP(s).

I hope this will help you.

Hi Amaal,

Kamel gave you a good response with some of the basics.

However, he didn't address the issue of sending the messages to a URL for filtering.

The best way to accomplish this is to implement the SMSSend Pre-Auth callback, as described in the following document:

The way this works, each time an SMPP user submits a message, before NowSMS accepts it, it calls your URL to determine whether or not the message should be accepted.

Note that the link that I referenced above is a little old and in need of updating, as it does not describe all of the URL parameters that are present in the callback. You will also receive a "To=" parameter indicating the intended recipient of the message, and a "Text=" (if text) or "Data=" (if binary) parameter with the details of the message. Your callback can use that information to determine whether or not to allow the message to be accepted.
