Three things:

1.) The "Convert to SMS with Web Link" option generates a dynamic web page on the MMSC component of NowSMS.

The MMSC component essentially acts as a web server. And the receiving device must be able to establish an HTTP connection to the NowSMS MMSC component.

In order to do this, basically NowSMS needs to be accessible over the internet with a host name that is configured as the "Local Host Name or IP Address" in the MMSC configuration. If this address is set to, that is a local loopback address that is not remotely accessible.

2.) I am also suspicious about the ":8800" in your example. NowSMS listens for HTTP requests on two different ports. "8800" is the default port number for interfacing with the SMS gateway (sending messages).

The "Convert to SMS with Web Link" option uses the "HTTP Port Number" configured for the MMSC, which must be different from the "Port number for web interface" setting.

3.) Getting past these issues, if your goal is a DRM server, then I would have to discourage you. The OMA DRM standard was a good attempt at standards based DRM for mobile devices. Nokia implemented in Symbian devices. However, the standard was never embraced by Google or Apple, so those DRM functions do not work with Android or iPhone. As a result, in the real world, the DRM functionality is of limited, if any, use.
