Hi,

I am trying to send an SMS from NowSMS to SMSC of CDMA network simulator. SMSOUT.Log shows that response from SMSC is OK. However, for SMSCMsgId it shows "SMSCMsgId=This field is not supported yet". Below is the complete entry of Log file:
2011-12-20 09:55:00,4EE0DA0D.req,127.0.0.1,1234567890,OK -- SMPP - 127.0.0.1:6000,SMSCRouteName=AA;Sender=tester;SMSCMsgId=This field is not supported yet.;Text="testing"

SMPPDEBUG.Log file contains the following text:


13:56:49:524 ConnectToServer: Connected to 192.168.0.5 (192.168.0.5:6000)
13:56:49:524 (00000398) 192.168.0.5 --: SMPPConnect: Exiting
13:56:49:524 (00000398) 192.168.0.5 ->: 23 byte packet
13:56:49:524 (00000398) 192.168.0.5 ->: 00 00 00 17 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01
13:56:49:524 (00000398) 192.168.0.5 ->: 00 00 00 34 00 00 00 4
13:57:19:523 (00000398) 192.168.0.5 --: SMPPBind: SMPP response failed


I am not sure where exactly is the problem.

Thanks

Hi,

I am not sure what the problem is either ... because what you have described is not a problem.

The log indicates that the network simulator that you are using is returning the following text in the message ID field: "This field is not supported yet."

This is not text generated by NowSMS, NowSMS is simply recording the message ID that was returned by the upstream server. And the upstream server would appear to be returning this text. (It's a simulator, so that's not necessarily surprising.)

I don't know how the SMPPDEBUG.LOG relates to this. Most likely the SMPPDEBUG.LOG is just old. The SMPPDEBUG.LOG is not enabled by default, but it does get enabled temporarily during connection attempts from the administrative interface ... so most likely this is just old data.

Hi Des,

Thanks for your support. Actually, I want the upstream server to forward the SMS, it receives from NowSMS to a mobile phone which is connected with the upstream server via network simulator. When I send an SMS directly from SMSC server of network simulator to mobile phone, it works. However, when I try to send SMS using NowSMS then SMSC server does not forward it to the mobile phone. Only thing that comes in my mind is that may be it happens because of mobile phone number I am using. The network simulator does not care about number, it can receive SMS from any number and it can send SMS to any number. However, NowSMS manual writes that in order to send an SMS correct mobile phone number should be provided. Do you think the mobile phone number might be the source of problem?
Thanks in advance!

Hi Badar,

It's hard to say ... does the simulator have any documentation about its required SMPP settings?

The log does indicate that the simulator is accepting the message without returning an error.

One thing that comes to mind is that by default, NowSMS will leave the sender address field blank, and that can cause issues with many SMPP implementations. The solution to this is to configure the "Default Sender Address" setting in the SMPP configuration in NowSMS. Maybe this setting would make a difference?
