    2. Host - host of the SMPP server. In this case it will be RUT (public or private) IP address.
    3. Port - port that will be used by the SMPP server. Default value is 2775.
    4. System ID - this property specifies the username for SMPP server authentication.
    5. Password - password used for SMPP server authentication.
    6. Destinatary - enter cell phone number of the recipient.
    7. Body - this body permits to include a text in the message. For this example N3uron test is used.

    Apply changes by pressing Networking rutos manual n3uron configuration button save.png button.

    The final step is to add a trigger for SMPP Notifier. For simplicity a periodic trigger is configured.

  • Add New Periodic trigger. Name it Periodic_1.
  • Networking rutos manual n3uron configuration 7.png

    1. Set Scan rate to desired period in milliseconds. Default value can be used.
    2. Change Type to Fixed interval.

    N3uron SMPP Notifier will now send messages to SMPP server.
    Note: Since we are using trial (demo) license for N3uron's Notifier there is a time limit of two hours. Upon expiration , module will automatically stop running. This period can be reset by restarting the expired module (in this case - N3uron Notifier). The demo period may be restarted any number of times. Networking rutos manual n3uron notes 2.png

    SMPP server configuration on RUT device

    In this configuration example device RUTX12 is used.

  • Navigate to Services -> Package manager and install SMPP service.
  • Networking rutos manual smpp installation 1 v3.png

  • SMPP configuration can be found in Services -> Mobile utilities -> SMS gateway -> SMPP. Values must match the ones set in N3uron SMPP Notifier.
    1. Enable SMPP service.
    2. Username as in N3uron SMPP Notifier's System ID.
    3. Password as in N3uron SMPP Notifier's Password.
    4. Server port as in N3uron SMPP Notifier's Port.
    5. Modem - modem used to send SMS to the recipient.*
    • - Modem option is available only on RUTX12 device.
