Hi,

Can you please clarify your question? Basically, I'm not sure if your question is related to the 2-way SMS facility (command table), or if it is related to SMPP client accounts on the NowSMS server (defined under the "SMS Users" dialog).

I am guessing that you are asking having multiple user accounts connecting to NowSMS via SMPP.

In that situation, the only way that received messages can be routed to one of these user accounts is based upon the recipient phone number in the received message. And if you are using GSM modems, this would mean one GSM modem for each account that needs to receive messages.

If you weren't using the phone number to determine which account to route a message to, the only other way that I could see that this could be done would be based upon some keyword in the message text. I suppose you could use the "2-way" command table and some cleverness to route to different local user accounts with the "command prefix" logic. Based upon the first "word" of the SMS message, a different script could be executed. That script could return a redirect response back to the gateway to resubmit the message, but this time specifying a different recipient address (which got routed to the desired local SMPP account). That would take a good bit of work to get setup, but it is possible.
