Hi,
I have an Ethernet based SMS modem from Multitech and I would like to send SMS messages from a computer.

I would like to configure the modem with an IP address on the Ethernet Interface and connect to this IP address to send SMS messages.

Any suggestions how this could be implemented?

Regards,
Laurean

My first instinct would be to say that the program couldn't interface with the device... but I don't know enough about Ethernet based modems to speak authoritatively.

I can, however, say that so long as the modem has COM port on the computer running the PageGate Server, PageGate can use it. If the modem has no COM port, PageGate isn't going to be able to use it.

I have used the MultiTech line (FULL DISCLOSURE: We are MultiTech resellers) - As tech support noted - all you need to do is to assign a COM port to the modem. Then set up a new carrier in PageGate using the GSM protocol and pointed to that port

Since I don't have a solution for my Ethernet based modem I was looking into SNPP.
Are there any providers that could be used for testing?
If I am sending SMS messages using SNPP through a carrier, can I send SMS messages to a phone which is not connected to the provider that I am using?

Thanks,
Laurean

Sorry for the delay - had a couple client's with emergencies and also had a drive crash )-;

As far as the MultiTech - the answer depends on how you have it installed on your network. If you don't have the original documentation - it can be found here:
