Introduction

In this guide you will find information on how you can you run an application with the Application starter user of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway when an incoming SMS is received. First you need to configure the SMS service provider connection in your Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. For receiving SMS messages the configuration of a service provider connection is neccessary. You can find information at this website on how to set up Ozeki NG SMS Gateway with SMPP service provider connection. On the following webpage you can find a list which includes moreservice providers. After you configured the service provider connection you can start the installation of the Appstarter user.

Configuration in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway

Please follow the steps below to configure the Appstarter user to start your application when an incoming message is received. The first step of the configuration is that you need to install the Appstarter user of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. (Figure 1)


Figure 1 - Installation of Application starter

You need to provide the name of the Appstarter user. In this example the name is "appstarter". Please check the following steps to install Appstarter user. (Figure 2)


Figure 2 - Setting "appstarter" name

Before you start using the Appstarter user, you should set the paramters poperly with the "Configure" link of the user. (Figure 3)


Figure 3 - Configuring Application Starter

When you set up the Appstarter you need to create a process.bat file. You can provide your own .bat file if you modify the parameters of the Appstarter user. In this sample you will get to know how you can write the default parameters of a message (sender,messagetext) into a text file. When an SMS is received the software will execute the process.bat file. Then you should create the .bat file with the following parameters:

echo %1 %2 >> C:\inputsms.txt

This way a new text file will be created when the sms received. It is also possible to run an external application. After you created this file, please save the file as process.bat. The script will get the parameters from the Appstarter user of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. It is important that the applications you configured in the appstarter user, are started by the Ozeki NG service process. You can add your own application if you modify the Command textbox of the Appstarter user. (C:\Windows\notepad.exe). After you have changed the Command path of your application, the application will be started when you have received SMS messages. (Figure 4)

This process is a service process, that runs in the background. You can configure the Ozeki NG SMS Gateway service if you set the Control Panel/Administrative tools/Services menu item.


Figure 5 - Opening the service properties form

After you opened the Services menu, in your services list you will find the service of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. Please right click on the program and open Properties, then the Properties window will pop up. In the "Log on" tab please enable the "Allow service to interact with desktop" option. (Figure 6)

Starting your Application by receving SMS messages

Before you start receiving SMS messages please check your routing rules. You should configure an incoming routing rule and you should add a new routing rule from your service provider and set the Appstarter user as the destination parameter. After you configured the inbound routing you can start receiving messages. If you receive SMS messages your application will start automatically after the Appstarter user received the SMS messages.
