We have a platform geared up to send SMS and handle user authentication, credit deductions and reporting.

I now have to plug in OTA sends, would it be possible to get Now SMS to encode the binary messages from the XML and pass them back to us for later submission rather than send them?

Hi Rik,

There is no functionality for doing this.

Our argument would be that you could always just post the XML later, when you want to send it. I can't see how saving the binary to send later adds any value.

That's just my opinion.

However ... if you want to get tricky ... you could define an HTTP SMSC connection that pointed to a URL for a script that you receive. Make sure that "Support any outbound message traffic" is NOT checked, so that NowSMS does not try to route real messages to this connection.

After defining the connection, save it, then manually edit the SMSGW.INI file. Look for the newly created [HTTP - server:port] header in the file, and underneath of it, add SMSCRoute=capture

When you submit your XML, include "&SMSCRoute=capture" in the URL, to tell NowSMS to route it to this phony HTTP SMSC connection.

For information about defining the URL template for the HTTP SMSC connection, see this link: tions/HTTP_SMSC.htm
