Hi Bendecida,

How is NowSMS connected to the SMSC?

It sounds like you are connecting to NowSMS as an SMPP client.

But how is NowSMS connected to the external SMS network? Is it configured to receive SMS messages over the defined SMSC interface?

If NowSMS is properly configured to receive SMS messages over such an interface, and you want to have those messages routed for an SMPP client to retreive from NowSMS ... then in the area where you define the SMPP client account to NowSMS (the "SMS Users" page) ... you need to check "Route received messages to user via SMPP". And you need to provide a value for the "Recipient address(es) to route to this user" field.

When NowSMS receives a message from a defined SMSC connection, it looks at the recipient phone number (note that if you are using a GSM modem, NowSMS applies the phone number that is defined under "Properties" for that modem on the "SMSC" page of the NowSMS config) for that message, and it compares this against the "Recipient address(es) to route to this user" field to decide whether or not to route the message to an SMPP client.

You can use wildcard characters in this field, such as "*" to route all received messages to the SMPP client.

If NowSMS does not see a match for any SMPP client accounts, it then routes the message to any commands defined in the "2-way" command table. And if no matching command is found in that table, then the received message is simply dumped as a ".SMS" file to the SMS-IN subdirectory beneath NowSMS.

Hope that helps. If it does not, please advise more detail about the SMSC connection that NowSMS is using to send/receive messages.
