I am using NowSMS whit 4 GSM Modems. Each modem send sms to a specific localtion. ej:
modem 1 to city 1
modem 2 to city 2
modem 3 to city 3
modem 4 to city 4

I have some problems with cities 1 and 2 cused by high traffic in these cities, a lot of CMS Error 38 and CMS Error 42 and the flow of SMS that I able send is very low, one or two SMS per minute each city.

Is possible limit the speed of shipping for each modem? I am sure if make pauses between messages will work best.

I tried with SMSSendlimit = x / y but it dont make the pauses. When a error inmediately try to resend the message.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Ramon,

What exactly did you configure, and where did you configure it?

The correct setting is SMSCSendLimit=x/y, and it goes under the SMSC specific section(s) of the SMSGW.INI file. (For a modem, this would be under [Modem - Driver Name])

Assuming that you configured it correctly and your message above just has a typo, what value did you use?

This setting does not necessarily place a delay between message submissions. It just ensures that NowSMS does not try to send messages faster than the rate specified. So for example, if you set a rate of 1/3, meaning 1 message every 3 seconds, NowSMS would only insert a delay if the modem takes more than 3 seconds to send a message.

If you want to force a delay after sending a message, there is an additional configuration parameter that can be used under the [Modem - Driver Name] section header .... DelayAfterSend=####, where #### is a value in milliseconds. NowSMS will pause this long after a message submission, which can be useful with some modems.
