Hey ,
I investigate a very interesting and horrible error or bug

NowSMS Gateway sending an auto-Response SMS without Routing SMS to SMS Command Table in few cases WHY it happens ?

Because it Completely finish my SIM Card balance many time during execution while in the application I strongly restrict the Mobile number and only response to those who are registered to our SYSTEM

Hi,

I'm sorry but I don't understand your question.

If you are asking about: "Command not completed. Request returned invalid content type: text/html"

This means that your 2-way command was processed, but the command returned an HTML (text/html) response.

If you are using the "Command returns response text" setting with an HTTP 2-way command, the script processing the command must return a Content-type: text/plain response, otherwise this error response is generated.

If you are seeing this error only sometimes, it could be the result of a PHP or ASP script error.

The best way to troubleshoot is to enable the SMSDEBUG.LOG. That log will contain a lot of info that is not useful, but it will also include the raw HTTP request and response from the 2-way command. That will allow you to see what the error is that is occurring with your command.

Thank You for your response :-)

I have checked my ASP file and found no script error.

Mr Des, Is there any way to restrict some Mobile numbers and don't send auto response via now SMS Gateway to restricted Senders ?

That log shows the response from your script.

It is an empty response with Content-Type set to text/html.

What are you expecting the response from your script to be?

Look before that in the log and you will see the HTTP request that NowSMS generated. Try that same request from a web browser.

I know you say your script has no error, but check again.

My Code
if ( sender == true )
{
Response.Write("ABC received Your message :Your message date is: 28/01/2013")
}
else
{

}

if the authorized sender send sms to our system they will get response SMS and if unauthorized user send SMS to our system I am not sending Response SMS to that sender.

Make sure your first line of ASP is this:

Response.ContentType = "text/plain"

I can't emphasize too much how important this is:


quote:

Make sure your first line of ASP is this:

Response.ContentType = "text/plain"




Even if your response is blank, NowSMS will generate "Command not completed. Request returned invalid content type: text/html" unless the Content-type: header in the response is text/plain.

When using ASP, the code above sets the content type for the response.

NowSMS will not generate a response if the Content-Type is text/plain and the content is blank.
