Hi, is it possible to process binary SMS by defining a command -(script) in the 2-way Section of NowSMS 4.x or 5.0b? Only Text SMS will be processed but not binary SMS. Or is the only way to process the SMS-IN Folder direcly?

that it is possible by setting some configuration flags, but he didn't finish the I can't tell you how to do it, but I think the NOWSMS-team can...!?!?

I think that this information would be very usefull for all developers, working with NOWSMS!!! I hope in the final version of 5.0 you have support for this problem!}

Hi Stephan and Christoph,

The feature that Kent started to describe in the referenced discussion thread (the feature was actually added in response to that thread) exists in the v5.0 (beta) release. There is a brief description in the readme.txt file, that I'll repeat below:

Allow received binary messages to be processed by a 2-way command. Note that no binary messages will be passed to a 2-way command unless the 2-way command includes a replaceable parameter setting named "@@Binary@@". This replaceable parameter will be set to "1" for binary messages, and "0" for text messages. Additional replaceable parameters supported include @@DCS@@, @@PID@@ and @@UDH@@ (user data header).

That's a rather brief description, so if you need further clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
