Hello Guys:

I am using NowSMS with SMPP Conexion over TCP/Ip Network. I have a unique defined connection to the carrier smsc, All the connection is working fine, but now I need to answer by two different originator numbers with the same connection. For Ex. if a receive from 4444, I want to return by 4444 and if I receive from 7777 I need to answer by 7777, no modification from the carrier smsc is possible.

Hi Bendecida,

Do you have only a single SMSC connection defined in NowSMS?

If so, there is an easy solution.

As long as "Allow Sender Address Override" is checked in the properties for the SMSC definition, then you can include a "Sender" parameter when you send an outbound message.

The way that this would typically work in a "2-way" SMS scenario, is that when a received SMS message is processed, we tell you the address that message was sent to in the @@RECIP@@ parameter.

If you are simply sending text responses back, NowSMS automatically applies the recipient value as the sender.

If you are generating your own reply independently, or using the "redirect" technique, then you must include "&Sender=7777" in the URL that you send back to NowSMS. (Where this "7777" value would be parsed by your script from the "@@RECIP@@" replaceable parameter in the received message.)
