Version of smsd: 3.1.11.
Smsd installed from: sources
Name and model of a modem / phone:sony ericsson gc79
Interface: serial

I am using this GSM modem. I have successfully installed cygwin and smstools. I have also extracted and install it by make command. Now i couldn't get the right way to configure smsd.conf file. I just want to send and receive bulk sms, using a single above mentioned modem, which is attached at comport8. I have successfully communicate with this modem using hyper terminal. Now, Please help me to configure "smsd.conf" file properly. I will be really grateful to you.
I have little knowledge about programming so please help me in simple words. :(

If you installed smstools using make install, there is a simple configuration file existing. Just edit the file /etc/smsd.conf and replace device = /dev/ttyS0 with device = /dev/com8.

Because in the cygwin there is no /etc/init.d directory, the installation said: "I do not know where to copy scripts/sms3. Please find out yourself." You could copy the smstools3/scripts/sms3 to /usr/local/bin directory. Then use a command sms3 start to start the daemon, and sms3 stop to stop it.

After smsd is started, use a command tail -100f /var/log/smsd.log to see how it works. You should not see any error messages.

Probably I did not understand you now... :roll:

There is autosplit setting for outgoing messages, and it defaults to "concatenated format". Just create a message with more than 160 characters, and multipart message is sent. In the receiving side, there is a setting internal_combine, which defaults to yes. Messages longer than 160 characters are combined internally, you will just get a single file into the incoming directory.

I do not see any complex details in the configuration page... :) :)

There are differences between devices, and some devices need some extra settings. Also, lots of features have been added to this software and this has caused more options. There is version 2.x of smstools still available (www.meinemullemaus.de), if you need a software with less options... ;)

I have not used this device by myself. However, it looks like this device should work very well, at least when running on Linux. It has Multiport Serial PCI card, which surely provides independent serial port for each chip. This is required for smstools.

First you should know about your device, and then check every setting and decide if it's required or not ;).

Okay, as told, very simple configuration will work as a starting configuration, and you have already tested it. If there is something more required later, just apply the new setting.

You are running Windows XP (with Cygwin?) and you are talking about "bulk sms". This does not sound very good. I assume that you are going to give some 10000 - 100000, or even more SMS files to smstools, right? This will not work properly, because in WIndows (and Cygwin) the file system is very slow. Most of the time is spent in the file system delays. Your front-end application should give a reasonable number of files to smstools, for example not more than couple of hundred files at a time. Also, you should define independent queue for each modem (manual page).

The next version 3.1.12 will work better on Cygwin with lots of files (not many thousands), but still the delay of filesystem is remarkable. With eight modems and "bulk sms" you should first move to the Linux.

That 3.1.12 is now released. You can test it on Cygwin, even without real modems connected (using a setting modem_disabled = yes).
