Hi, I have a application that uses a simple http based command to broadcast a SMS, for some reason I cannot sync it with this gateway, the command that I am using is :[MobileNum]&Text=[Msg] - where MobileNum = a simple mobile number with no + sign etc. Msg = "A simple txt msg". ps. it all works from the http portal without a problem so I know it works. in the log files, it looks like the command above. Can this be done ?

I'd be curious to see what you see in the log files to see if there is something missing.

It would also be very helpful to know what the HTTP response is that you receive back from your request, as that should tell us why the message was rejected.

If you have a "+" character in the phone number, it needs to be URL escaped (%2B).

Aside from that, in most situations you also need to include user authentication. You can either build an "Authorization:" header, or the easy way is to include "&user=username&password=password" in the URL request. This username/password corresponds to an account name defined on the "SMS Users" list.
