Question 1:
How do i log all the send out text/recipient to SQL database? i am able to log all incoming SMS to SQL database (by executing asp script from execute command) but when send out from web interface, how do log the outgoing text and recipient mobile to SQL db? Can continueURL work in this case and can it log text and recipient?

Question 2:
2 way SMS, when received incoming message from gsm modem, how can i 'forward' this message to the original sender to this recipient? We like to use it on multiple user environement, meaning 1 gsm modem phone # will be use by multiple user. How to distinguish which incoming message belongs to which sender.

We are using gsm modem in both case.

I am trying to do the same thing: parse the sms for the sender number and then forward selectively based on that number. I haven't found a solution yet unfortunately. it might be possible to check the sms content in your .asp script, but then we need the syntax for sending a request directly to the sms server from the script?

1. Outbound messages are logged to the USERS\username\SMS-yyyymmdd.LOG file. There is no real-time interface that would give you the content of messages that users are submitting. (There is an accounting callback that specifies that a user is attempting to send a message, but it does not provide the content.)

2. There is nothing in a received message that can tell you that it is in reply to a particular sent message. That is not a limitation of NowSMS, but rather there is simply no SMS attribute that can be used to correlate that a reply is in response to a particular message.

The only techniques for being able to separate messages is to require that messages for a particular destination include a keyword as the first text in the message (we call this an "SMS command prefix") ... or install multiple GSM modems.
