Hi..
How or would it be possible to have PageGate PC to receive an email and send as SMS in a closed and standalone environment?

We have PowerIQ server (CentOS) managing and monitoring PDUs and have a standalone workstation access PowerIQ server for status of PDUs.

Above environment has no Internet access nor internal/external DNS server. (None of devices are configured for DNS)

ps. PowerIQ only sends alert as email.

So, how would I go about configuring PageGate, which will be installed on standalone workstation to receive an email from PowerIQ server to send as SMS to my mobile when there is an alert triggered in PDUs.


Regards

Is PowerIQ going to be on the same LAN as PageGate?

@ Tech Support.

They are not. But routable.
PowerIQ = 172.22.10.x
PageGate = 172.22.14.x

There are two different ways that PageGate's GetMail module can function can function: Domain Hosting and POP Mailbox

The POP mailbox method is available if the sub-domain method can't be implemented. You would need to have a POP mailbox created, then you could tie a recipient or a group to the mailbox. You would want one mailbox configured for each recipient or group, then you would configure PageGate to periodically check each of these email addresses. If there are messages in the mailbox, Pagegate would read them in and deliver them to whatever recipient or group that email address had been tied to. I don't think this method is applicable or viable in this particular setup.

The Domain Hosting allows you to configure the program so that all recipients and groups configured in PageGate become email addresses on a domain name of your choosing. So, for example, if you had a recipient configured called PingMonster, you could send an email to PingMonster@whatever.com and that message would be sent to PageGate, which would then translate it in to a page to the pager ID referenced in the settings of the PingMonster recipient.

So, as long as they're routable, the easiest way I can think of to do what you want in the environment you have would be to create a domain name, edit the hosts/lmhosts files in the OS of both the PageGate Server and the PowerIQ systems to assign that domain name to the internal IP of the PageGate Server, then configure our GetMail module to monitor that domain for incoming traffic.

Here's how:

1) Open the PageGate Admin.

2) Go to Interfaces - GetMail - Settings.

3) Set the Local Domain field to the domain name reference in the hosts/lmhosts.

4) Put a check in Enabled.

5) Click on Apply.

6) Tell it yes, you do want to enable it for all recipients and groups.
