Hi,

i read in the forums, that nowsms will loadbalance automaticaly when i have more then 1 SMSC connection.

I tryd to add 2 mobiles via bluetooth, and went to preferences for each and entered eachs phone number.

Then i went ahead and used the following URL:

http://127.0.0.1:8800/default.htm?PhoneNumber=XXXXXXXXXX&Text=abc+def+ghi&Sender =XXXXXXXXX

where Sender had the phonenumber of my first mobile on first try, and the phonenumber of the second mobile on second try.

This seemed to work fine, since on a 3rd mobile i recived both messages, once from my first number, and once from my second number.

My question is, if i specify the Sender in the nowsms command, will it always obey this command, and specificaly send the SMS via that interface, or can it happen that it automaticaly loadbalances and sends it with wichever one is free ?

Regards

Hi Alexander,

If you specify a "Sender", then NowSMS looks for any SMSC definition that has a matching "Default Sender Address" (or "Phone Number" for GSM modems). The message will only be routed out through the matching SMSC connection.

If you do not specify a "Sender", or there is no defined match, then the message will be routed out via the first available SMSC connection.
