Hi

.---------------- (1)
Can the following parameters be configured at each SMPP connection level or only as a system wide parameter.
MaxSMSSegmentLengthText, MaxSMSSegmentLengthBinary

.---------------- (2)
Are the parameters still relevant?

AllowedUserOnly=
AllowedUser...=


I put these in the SMPP connection section but they are removed as soon as I save some settings thru the nowSMS configuration application.

Hi,

1 - That setting is global.

The only documentation we have on that setting is here: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/70112.html

I would hesitate to use this parameter to define larger segment sizes, but it should be ok for smaller,

2. Exit the configuration application before editing SMSGW.INI ... or add allowed users to the "Preferred Connection for" list. The config application puts allowed user settings in that list now, and does not detect manual edits made until the config application is reloaded.

Hi,

The MaxSMSSegmentLengthText and MaxSMSSegmentLengthBinary should be set under SMPP or under SMSGW.

Also.. Inquiring if you have made any changes so that these are defined at SMPP level?

When you said "define larger segment sizes, but it should be ok for smaller", what exactly you had in mind.. Could you give an example?

Hi Mathew,

Under [SMSGW].

The setting is global.

It would be considerable engineering effort to implement a per-SMSC connection.

The default setting is MaxSMSSegmentLengthText=160 and MaxSMSSegmentLengthBinary=140. Setting lower values should be OK, but I would hesitate to use larger values.


If you have an SMSC with different length limits, it is often better to use message_payload, where the entire long message is submitted in one transaction, and the SMSC handles segmentation. This is enabled on an individual SMPP connection by enabling the WDP Adaptation setting.
