I was checking SMSIN folder today and i saw some messages have .BAD extension, i think these messages couldn't been processed. in my 2way config, i process messages using an asp page...
i enabled debugging on SMSDEBUG, and updated the extension to in to emulate... i realized that the GET returns an error msisdn not provided in the sql script inside my asp page. then i rechecked the GET url, i realized it was trimmed to 4080 characters (the message is much more than 4080 characters). I wonder is the limitation from nowsms itself or this is something related to IIS webserver ?

I'm sorry, but I don't know what the limit was in NowSMS 2006.

I believe that currently our internal limit is around 8000 characters (which is far too long to be practical).

Is the full URL displayed in SMSDEBUG.LOG?

there smsdebug fetch command to be executed with full url, then execute GET and the url, wish contains the trimmed url. in fact this is why i am asking if nowsms make limitation. Is the limitation from nowsms url processing ? since i can make a exe handler for my messages in this case.

I can confirm that NowSMS truncates 2-way command URLs at just over 4000 characters.

I suggest making the message text the last parameter of the command, so that only the text is truncated, and not any other parameters.

i think in my case nowsms post sms using ucs2 encoding, means every character is around 4 characters in url, wish make the actual message around 1000 characters. Can i change some thing to increase my limit ? the actual sms message coming is 1200 arabic characters. Can i use an exe app and then no limitation will be there ? is the limitation only in the internal web client that nowsms use ?
