I am trying to fully automate the use of NOW SMS. I see examples on sending a message but not on configuration. I will be using a command line style for the same PC running nowSMS.

Can I add SMSC connection and set the associated parameters?
Can I add MMSC User via an API call.

If there is not an API call are there configuration files I can manipulate?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Scott,

There's not really an API for configuration. But most details (except user accounts) are simply defined in the SMSGW.INI and MMSC.INI files.

We do not have any documentation on the settings that the configuration program uses when creating these files, but it is somewhat straight-forward, and can be observed by making definitions and then looking at these files.

For MMSC user adding, there is a command line utility, MMSUSER.EXE. See MMSUSER.TXT for usage details.

Also of note about silent installation, see this thread: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/2816.html
(SMSGW.EXE /I /Q to install service, /R /Q to remove)
