SNPP Advanced Settings

Top  Previous  Next





Failover is the ability of PageGate to send an undeliverable message to an alternate host. For example, let's say that you're registered on the Verizon EMAG system. Since they support SNPP, SMTP and WCTP, you could configure the program to failover from SNPP to either SMTP or WCTP and then configure a second layer of failover between SMTP and WCTP. The failover settings at the carrier level is used to redirect all the pending messages to another carrier when the original carrier can't be contacted.


This field determines this carrier's place within the priority system.


By default, all carriers have their priority value set to 100 which puts them all on equal footing. If you leave 100 as your baseline, giving a carrier a priority value lower than 100 will be considered more important with a value of 1 being the most important and a value higher than 100 will be considered less important up to the maximum value of 32000 being the least important.


If the SNPP host system requires authentication credentials, enter them in this field. Typically speaking, you'll enter the username and password separated by a single space.

Msg Limit

This field determines the number of messages that can be negotiated with the receiving SNPP system in one session. Set this value to what the receiving system supports.

Max PIN Length

This field is used to limit the number of digits accepted from a recipient's ID/PIN field for this carrier (extra digits are stripped of the beginning).
