This guide demonstrates how to create and
setup a Forwarder user in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. This user allows to transfer
text messages between two service providers. This feature helps build a cost
effective SMS system. Please find below the configuration guide and the routing
tables but at first you can learn how the user works.
On Figure 1 you can examine how Forwarder user works:
For example, User A sends an SMS text message from the phone number of
+36301122334 to the phone number of User B (+36701234567). In Ozeki NG
SMS Gateway, this message will be processed by SMPP1 Service Provider.
Then the message is forwarded to the Forwarder user that will sent out
the message to User B via SMPP2 Service Provider (Figure 1).
Figure 1 - System architecture
To create a Forwarder user in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway,
click on Add new user or application option after you login. Select
Forwarder user in the list and click on Install next to it
Figure 2 - Install Forwarder user
On the Configuration pane click on Advanced tab and
enable Overridable option (Figure 3). Please note that Overridable
option needs to be enabled for the service providers and the Forwarder user,
as well. So in this example it is enabled for SMPP1, SMPP2 and Forwarder user.

To ensure that the message will be forwarded to Forwarder user
and then to SMPP2 service provider you need to make some routing configuration
in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway.
In Inbound routing table set SMPP1 as Source, and
Forwarder as Destination (Figure 4).

In Outbound routing table set Forwarder as
Source, and SMPP2 as Destination (Figure 5).
