Use this option's configuration display to configure the settings the selected NetBotz Appliance can use for Short-Message Service (SMS) communication.
|SIM PIN||For modems that use a SIM (subscriber identification module), identify the PIN (personal identification number) used to unlock that SIM.
For modems that do not have a SIM, this field must be blank.
|Confirm SIM PIN||Identify the SIM PIN, again.|
|Service Center (SMSC)||Identify the address of the Short Message Service Center (SMSC) used by your SMS service.
The SMSC is essentially an SMS server that is used to send the messages. The address for the SMSC is typically programmed into the SIM and, therefore, you can typically leave this field blank.
Entering a value in this field will override automatic SMSC selection.
|Destination||Identify the address used to send an SMS to an e-mail destination.
When an SMS message needs to be sent to an e-mail destination address, the NetBotz Appliance puts the e-mail address at the beginning of the message and sends it to the Destination address. The SMSC receives the message, pulls out the e-mail address, and sends the remainder of the message to that address.
The default value for this field is 0000000000, the value that works with AT&T Wireless.
|Interrupt PPP When an SMS Alert Occurs||Select this option if your modem supports both SMS and Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) communications, to allow SMS communication to override PPP communication when necessary.
If PPP dial-out is active when the NetBotz Appliance needs to send an SMS alert, PPP will be interrupted while the SMS message is sent.
Once the SMS message has been sent, the PPP connection will be reestablished.
|Send Debug Messages to Syslog||Select to have debug messages forwarded to the syslog host.|
|Use Default SMS Settings||Select to use the default SMS values for your SMS-capable modem.
To use custom settings, disable this option and use Use Protocol Descriptor Unit (PDU), Character Set, and Initialization Commands to specify those customs settings.
|Use Protocol Descriptor Unit (PDU)||Select to use the PDU mode when communicating with the modem to send an SMS message.
PDU mode is more versatile than the default SMS text settings mode, and some modems do not support both modes.
|Character Set||Identify the character set to be used when communicating with the modem to send an SMS message.|
|Initialization Commands||Identify the initialization string to be used for the modem that will send SMS messages.|
