I am sending an SMS message through the T-Mobile website SMS message sending service to the NowSMS, and requesting a URL:


this URL should be fired when and SMS message comes. the messages can be seen in the IN directory, but the URL doesn't fire up. to make it clear, the URL should be fired on the same machine the the NowSMS is running right?

Hi Imran,

Yes, the URL would be connected to by NowSMS, so "localhost" would point to the local PC.

The files in the SMS-IN subdirectory ... do they have a ".IN" extension, or a ".SMS" extension?

If they have a ".SMS" extension, then NowSMS doesn't think the message matched any command prefix entries in the 2-way command table.

If they have a ".IN" extension, NowSMS is trying to process them, but is likely having a problem connecting to the URL.

My advice would be to put NowSMS into debug mode by manually editing SMSGW.INI, and under the [SMSGW] section header, add Debug=Yes. Then restart the NowSMS service, and send in another message.

Afterward, take a look at the content of the SMSDEBUG.LOG file. It can be somewhat cryptic, but it might show an error trying to connect to the URL. If nothing seems obvious, then please either e-mail this SMSDEBUG.LOG file to nowsms@now.co.uk, or post in reply to this message. It would also be helpful to see your SMSGW.INI file.
