The SMS Gateway service is used to set up various SMS related (mostly automated) functions. This chapter is a summary of the SMS Gateway service of RUT240 routers.
The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUT2XX_R_00.01.12 firmware version.
The Post/Get Configuration section is used to turn ON and configure SMS related post/get settings. When the function is enabled, it provides you with the possibility to perform SMS related action requests by writing them in the URL field of your web browser.
The figure below is an example of the Post/Get Configuration page and the table below provides information on fields contained in that page:
Use a web browser or any other compatible software to send HTTP post/get strings to the router. The router must be connected to a GSM network when using the Send SMS feature. Below you will find a table with possible actions and examples on how to use them:
Email to SMS is a function that connects to your email account and checks its inbox at the specified frequency. If it finds any new received emails with a specific subject (phone number in email subject), it sends the body of the email as an SMS message(s) to the recipient specified in the email subject field.
Important note: all POP3 server email messages from inbox will be deleted when using this service.
Additional note: you may have noticed that there is no option where you can specify the recipient’s phone number. As mentioned earlier, Email to SMS doesn’t forward all emails, only the ones that are meant to be forwarded. Only emails with the recipient’s phone number in the subject will be forwarded to SMS
Correct phone number format is:
For example, a valid number would be 0037012345678 (370 is country code and 12345678 is the receiver’s phone number, all preceded by 00)
Scheduled SMS allows you to set up the router to periodically send SMS messages to a specified number. Scheduled messages are managed in rule form. Therefore, to configure a new Scheduled Message, we must first create a rule. To create a new rule, type in a phone number in the Phone number field located in the Scheduled Messages Configuration section and click the Add button located next to it.
After this you will be redirected to the Scheduled Messages Configuration window where you can configure all parameters related to the rule. Once you save the configuration, you will be redirected back to the Scheduled SMS page, where you will see your new rule in the Messages To Send section:
The figure below is an example of the Scheduled Messages Configuration window and the table below provides information on the field contained in that window:
Auto reply is a function that responds to received SMS messages with a user defined automatic response. The figure below is an example of the Auto Reply section and the figure below provides information on the fields contained in that section:
The SMS Forwarding tab contains three sections:
Each of which can be used to set up forwarding of incoming SMS message to either HTTP, email or or another phone number.
The SMS Forwarding To HTTP function forwards received SMS messages to HTTP by using either Post or Get methods. The figure below is an example of the SMS Forwarding To HTTP section and the table below provides information on the configuration fields contained in that section:
This example will atempt to explain how to use the data fields in SMS forwarding to HTTP configuration. The fields in question are Number & Message value name and Extra data pair 1 & 2 fields. The figure below is the configuration we’ll be using for this example:
If you configure the router as seen in the image above and send an SMS message to the router containing the text Hello!, from the number +37012345678, the specified server should reiceve an encoded query string that looks like this:
The & symbol separates the the key-value pairs, while certain characters (like +, ! and the space symbol) are encoded in UTF-8. When decoded it might look something like this:
Code: RUT240 06E000
The SMS Forwarding To SMS function forwards received SMS messages to one or several other phone numbers. The figure below is an example of the SMS Forwarding To SMS section and the table below provides information on the configuration fields contained in that section:
The SMS Forwarding To Email function forwards received SMS messages to one or several email addresses. If this service is enabled and configured correctly, when the router receives an SMS message it will automatically login to the specified email account and send the text message as an email to another specified recipient(s)
The figure below is an example of the SMS Forwarding To Email section and the table below provides information on the configuration fields contained in that section:
Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) is a protocol used for exchanging SMS messages between Short Message Service Centers (SMSC) and/or External Short Messaging Entities (ESME). The figure below is an example of the SMPP section and the table below provides information on the configuration fields contained in that section:
