Hello, I have a problem with a 2-way config:
-I have 2 SMSC connections (1 UCP with swisscom and 1 CIMD with Orange).
Both are correctly configured for connecting SMSC with TCP/IP, login, etc...
But, I set up a 2-way to receive SMS and only the UCP SMSC connection receives the SMS (of course, both connections have the 'Receive SMS message' checked in the properties).

When i sniff the network, I can see that Orange (CIMD Connection) tries to send me the sms (see below), but nothing appear to be done in the NowSMS program (even in the SMSDEBUG.LOG file).

Part of the tcpdump (fake ip):

So, the only response from NowSMS is a 'ack'. Is it normal?

Thanks for your reply

Are you running NowSMS v5.5?

If not, please update to that version. There was a bug in some NowSMS versions where it did not like receiving packet #0 in a CIMD2 connection ... which interestingly enough will be the first received message over a connection.

The bug definitely doesn't exist in v5.50.

If you are running v5.50, I would like to see your SMSDEBUG.LOG and CIMDDEBUG.LOG files. Post them here (with userid/passwords blanked out), or e-mail to nowsms@now.co.uk.

We don't have any current plans for enhancements to our CIMD2 interface. However, many of our feature enhancements are driven by customer requests.

Is there particular functionality that you would like to see added in the NowSMS CIMD2 interface?
