The SMS Server Tools 3 is a SMS Gateway software which can send and receive short messages through GSM modems and mobile phones.
You can send short messages by simply storing text files into a special spool directory.
The program monitors this directory and sends new files automatically.
It also stores received short messages into another directory as text files.
Binary messages (including Unicode text) are also supported, for example ring tone messages.
It's also possible to send a WAP Push message to the WAP / MMS capable mobile phone.
The program can be run as a SMS daemon which can be started automatically when the operating system starts.
High availability can be ensured by using multiple GSM devices (currently up to 64, this limit is easily changeable).
The program can run other external programs or scripts after events like reception of a new message,
successful sending and also when the program detects a problem.
These programs can inspect the related text files and perform automatic actions,
for example storing information into a database (for example MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server), sending an automatic reply,
forwarding messages via eMail (SMS to eMail gateway), ... and whatever you like.
The SMS Server Tools runs on Microsoft Windows (with CygWin) and any Unix including Solaris, BSD, FreeBSD and GNU/Linux.
This software needs a GSM modem (or mobile phone) with SMS command set according to the european specifications
GSM 07.05 (=ETSI TS 300 585) and GSM 03.38 (=ETSI TS 100 900).
AT command set is supported.
Devices can be connected with serial port, infrared, USB or network modems using a socket.
