Admin users can send text messages directly using the default configuration:
If you want to receive text messages that can be sent to the admin user’s inbox, you need to configure Route incoming SMS:
4、the use of ordinary users
Using the admin administrator account, we can add more than one ordinary user. Create an ordinary user named test as follows:
Then create a short message for this user to send a route:
|User||selects which user to create a message to send a route|
|Destination name||Description of the route name|
|SMSC||chooses which port of the gateway to send SMS|
If the text message received through port 1 of the gateway can be sent to the test user’s inbox, you need to configure the sender ID for the test, as follows:
|User||chooses which user to create a sender ID for|
|Sender ID||sets the user’s Sender ID|
|Approve sender ID||set to yes|
|Set as default||set to yes|
In addition, the incoming SMS on the Route needs to be configured:
Then log in to the test user to use the test user to send and receive text messages.
Note: If you want each user to use their own sender ID, you need to configure in the main configuration:
