Hello,

We are evaluating the PageGate software. Last week I ran a test with wctp.attws.net/wctp and could successfully send messages to my phone. This week, however, it seems that the wctp.attws.net domain isn't resolving in DNS:

$ nslookup wctp.attws.net 8.8.8.8
Server: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53

** server can't find wctp.attws.net: NXDOMAIN

The wctp.att.net address does resolve, but it rejects my phone because we haven't subscribed to the enterprise messaging service.

Does anyone have an insight into the status of attws.net and/or another address that I can use? We'll probably fall back to SMTP if we can't get this to work, but the wctp seems to work better.

As you correctly observed, SNPP and WCTP access to ATT Wireless evices requires that the RECIPIENT device be subscribed to their Enterprise system, @ $10 per device per month. Other than SMTP (very unreliable), your only other option is to use a cellular modem and send MO/MT (Mobile Originated/Mobile Terminated) SMS from PageGate. A nice side benefit is the ability to RECEIVE replies from the mobile recipient.

I think you are missing my point:

a) It worked one week and stopped the next

b) The DNS isn't resolving to a host name. The only difference subscribing to Enterprise Message would make is that I could use the separate wctp.att.net address. That won't fix wctp.attws.net.
