    How to send SMS with Kannel


    I have configured sms kannel in the following manner, but I can't send any sms. I tried to use the sendsms.php script that comes with kannel but I just cant get any messages sent. What am I doin wrong? How can I actually send sms messages now that my kannel is up and running?

    #The CORE group configuration
    group = core
    admin-port = 13000
    smsbox-port = 13001
    admin-password = bar
    status-password = foo

    #The SMSBOX configuration
    group = smsbox
    bearerbox-host = 192.168.9.50
    sendsms-port = 13013
    sendsms-port-ssl = true
    log-file = "motapa.log"
    access-log = "motapa.accesss"

    #The SMSC as modem configuration
    group = smsc
    smsc = at
    modemtype = auto
    device = /dev/ttyS1
    speed = 9600
    pin = 1111
    sms-center = 0926655820088

    #The MODEM group configuration
    group = modems
    id = wavecom
    name = Wavecom
    speed = 9600
    no-pin = false
    init-string = "ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0"
    detect-string = "WAVECOM"
    detect-string2 = "MODEM"

    Hi motapa, welcome to Dev Shed.

    Please use a more descriptive subject line in future (I have edited it).
    It doesn't help anyone searching for a solution to similar problems.

    As to your problem, check your log files to see what is happening?
    Do you get any errors with sendsms.php?

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    I've looked into my log files and its contents are the same as the outputs I get when running the boxes. I tried looking at the output of the running boxes when I send an sms and there was no change in the outputs.

    Could this be because the php script is not correctly corrected to kannel. I tried copying the ".inc" file into the same folder as the php script and nothing still happens.

    I have done more home work and can now connect to my kannel. The only problem now is that when I try to send a sms it gives me a "Unknown Request" message. How can I overcome this.

    I need to enable content providing service on a keyword


    Hello ppl,

    can anybody tell me how should I use a keyword enabled content providing service? According to me I would have to add a sms-service group to kannel.conf with get-url as the depending upon keyword.

    How should I create a cgi script for that?

    Right you are. you have to add a sms-service group to your script. The service you provide can either be from a web page in which case you have to specif the get-url, or just url. Or it can be plain text,then you have to have a line like "text = <Your service here>", or the service could be to fetch content from a file then you'd need to add "file = <your filename and path here>".

    And you do not need a script for that, the ".../cgi-bin/sendsms" is not necessarily a script. It is just a tag, kinda like 'status' and 'shutdown' and 'restart'.

    Try using the alligata server manual along with the kannel manual. It helped fill the spaces that the kannel user guide left in my case.

    3: Queued for later 3: Queued or later delivery


    Description of above response by kannel:

    The message has been accepted and is delivered onward to a SMSC driver. Note that this status does not ensure that the intended recipient receives the
    message.


    How can I resolve this problem

    I tried many things.
    Added
    my-number = < no. of SIM inserted>
    smsc-center = < my smsc no. of above SIM> to kannel .conf
    Is that right?


    my modem is SIEMENS TC35
    I am connecting it with USB to pc and RS232 to modem
    is there any prob. of device-type?
    I've tried it with ttyS0 and ttyUSB0
