Hi Peter,

Yes.

Define an HTTP SMSC connection in NowSMS. Verify that it is working by submitting messages directly in NowSMS.

Then enable the SMPP server in NowSMS and define a client account under "SMS Users". Use those account credentials to connect your SMPP client to NowSMS.

This article provides info on the SMPP server setup: http://www.nowsms.com/using-nowsms-as-an-smpp-server-for-another-application

Hi Peter,

There are a few different ways to do this.

It's hard to recommend a best way without understanding more about your setup (for example, is it only going to be two accounts or does it have the possibility to grow to many more)...

The most scalable approach is if it is possible to use the same HTTP SMSC connection but pass the account name as a parameter. @@SUBMITUSER@@ in the URL will be replaced with the original SMPP account name.

If that is not practical, there are other routing options.

The easiest is if at least one of the accounts can always use a specific sender address (your HTTP connection can always reassign/override it). This is easiest because NowSMS will perform sender-based routing.

Configure a "Forced Sender Address" for user1, then configure that same "Sender Address" for HTTP SMSC1, and that will tell NowSMS to route messages from user1 out HTTP SMSC1. (This "Sender Address" can be made up as you do not need to include the @@SENDER@@ value in the URL string.)

More info on sender based routing can be found here: http://www.nowsms.com/routing-sms-messages-to-a-specifc-smsc-route

If sender-based routing is not practical, there is also a more complex way to restrict outbound routes to particular users. There's a good explanation of that setup in the following thread: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/20749.html
