Is it possible to connect multiple modems to a NowSMS, acting as a gateway (providing multiple SMPP connections) so that each modem is assigned to one SMPP user? For example:

Modem1 is assigned to user1

Modem2 is assigned to user2..etc

I intend to use that for bi directional SMM connectivity.

Thank you

Yes, this is possible.

What you want to do is this ...

On the SMSC page of the NowSMS configuration, go into "Properties" for each modem, and manually define the phone number associated with each modem.

While you are editing these properties, you can also configure the "Route SMS To Local User" setting to route received SMS messages to a specific SMPP client account.

The next step of the configuration is to force the messages sent by the SMPP client to go out a particular SMSC/modem connection.

Go into the "SMS Users" configuration for each of the users, and set the "Forced Sender Address" to match the "Phone Number" associated with the desired modem.
