Operating system name and version: Centos5
Version of smsd:
Smsd installed from: package repository
Name and model of a modem / phone: Falcom

Is there a method I could use to convert the binary received into hex for entry into a database..

The current system uses some junk java app that receives the message, converts it to hex and puts it into a db.

I'd like to do this with smstools3 instead of the junk flaky system we use on windows/java..

I receive around 45k messages across 15 modems in 6 hours, I'd like to move away from windows and get this done on linux, centos5 I hear you wail... It's a Corporate decision to use it so am stuck with it..

Any advice would be appreciated..
