Does the C program write its output to "stdout" so that it supports redirection?

If it doesn't, the NowSMS won't see its response.

You can test by running your command line program on the command line and using ">" to try to redirect output to a file.

For example:

dir > dir.txt

The above routes the output from the "dir" command to a file named "dir.txt".

Can you redirect output from your program to a file in this same way using the ">" symbol?

If you can, then it should work fine from a NowSMS 2-way command.

If you cannot, then the program needs to be modified to output to "stdout" so that it supports i/o redirection.
