We are trying to use the NOW SMS gateway to control APC switches (in order to "hard" reboot servers for example via a simple sms command).

When we try the script out it does reboot the server (in our testing case a lamp), but it does this every 5 seconds until the NOW SMS service is stopped or the SMS message deleted.

I have activated the debug logging wich I have included and I suspect it has to do with what the embeded device's webserver is returning as error code.

Any help would be be great !!



I have removed the password and IP adress of the device in the log file for obvious reasons....

Hi Andy,

The command is returning an HTTP response error, that is indeed why we are retrying.

The sequence in your log is interesting. I see that the issue is that we are sending an
"Authorization:" header in the original request. The server responds back with a redirect response ... and the issue seems to be that we are not sending the "Authorization:" header back for retrieving the redirected URL, even though the request is on the same host.

So this is something that we should fix. Send me an e-mail at nowsms@now.co.uk ... referencing this problem, and I will e-mail you an update that should address this problem.
