In this FAQ you will see how to configure sending of SMS messages via SMPP feature on 2N gateways. First of all you can read a brief introduction how do these features work and after that there are several important steps which have to be met for proper settings of this feature:
This FAQ applies for following gateways:
Note: As a very first step please make sure that the license for SMPP feature is uploaded into your 2N gateway. This license is sold as a package for 10 users (you can buy licence for 10, 20, 30, etc. users) and you can have up to 200 licensed users in the gateway. If you want to verify that you have uploaded the correct license in your gateway, go section "Management -> License key". You should see a licenses called SMSS and SMSUx in the "Active" row. SMSS indicates that SMPP feature is enabled and SMSUx indicates number of licensed users where x stands for this number (see the picture below). If there will not be a license for SMPP (SMSS) then you will not see tab "Messaging" on the top bar!
In the first step go to section "Messaging –> Modules grouping" and enable SMS server – check the appropriate check-box. Next add GSM modules to SMS groups in order to facilitate incoming/outgoing SMS routing. It can be done based on your requirements e.g. according to the GSM provider, etc. The last step in this section is to assign SMS groups created in the previous step to the User groups if you want to use messaging with different routing rules (e.g. to different company departments). The GSM gateway can contain up to 32 User groups and up to 32 SMS groups (4 in case of smaller gateways - BRI, VoiceBlue Next, VoiceBlue Max)
Note: in this section you can also enable AutoClip routing for SMS. Set the maximum time for which the automatic SMS routing record (response) will be saved in the AutoCLIP table. It means that once you send an email to some specific GSM number and after some time the mobile user responds to this message and sends a SMS message to SIM card inserted in the GSM module from which the email was previously sent, then this message will be automatically resent directly to the user who sent an email.
Note: newly you can also specify the message expire time. In case, that SMS message is not sent, in case it is received but not read or in case that DLR message has been received and not read you can specify after how long these SMS messages should be erased from gateway database.
As a next step you need to skip to the section "Messaging –> Users", click on the "Add" button and create new SMS user(s) who will send and receive SMS messages. There are several parameters in this section which have to be set.
You can see all parameters from this section in the picture below where was created user "Logica" with the login "logica" and password "logica". Once you fill in all parameters, click on the "OK" button. The user will be added and after that you have to make one more click to the "Save settings" button in the bottom right corner of the page (blue circle label in the picture).
Now specify the routing rules for incoming SMS messages – this is done in the "Messaging –> User Group –> Incoming SMS routing" menu where you click on the "Add" button. There are several parameters which can be set or modified (see the picture below). Three most important ones are:
Note: The rules are applied for incoming SMS sequentially, starting from the first rule. If all the set rules are met in a row, the SMS is routed according to the row.
As a last step you need to specify routing rules for outgoing SMS – it is done in the "Messaging –> User Group –> Outgoing SMS routing" menu where you click on the "Add" button. In this section you will specify mainly these parameters:
Note: do not forget to enable the SMS server as shown in the first step (there is a check-box)!
In the picture below there is shown settings for User Group 0. Messages from all users in this User group are routed via SMS group 0. It means that these messages will be transferred to SMS and sent only via GSM modules assigned to SMS group 0. It is all GSM modules in our example (as you can see in the picture from step 1).
1) Download Logica "Java test application" from the website Logica OpenSMPP
2) Open the Windows Terminal and get into the file folder where is saved smpp.jar
3) Write to the terminal this command for executing smpp.jar
java -cp smpp.jar;smpptest.jar com.logica.smpp.test.SMPPTest
4) You will get to the settings menu. Press "1" to bind client with the gateway and follow the settings on the picture
5) Press "2" for submit and follow settings on the picture
6) After that press Enter and you will send a SMS over the gateway
