Summary

TRB142 routers have an extensive amount of various SMS control utilities. SMS Utilities can be used to set/get configurations, monitor and issue commands to the router.

SMS Utilities

Default Rules


The SMS Utilities section contains a list of rules that perform certain actions when they are activated by SMS messages.

Networking rutx manual mobile utilities sms rules v1.png

The entire list contains more than 20 rules but you are also be provided with the possibility to configure custom ones or edit the existing rules.

All default configuration options are listed below:

  • Reboot
  • Send_status
  • I/O set
  • I/O status
  • Mobile (on)
  • Mobile (off)
  • SSH_access (on)
  • SSH_access (off)
  • Web_access (on)
  • Web_access (off)
  • Firstboot
  • Switch SIM
  • Fw_upgrade
  • RMS status
  • Rms connect
  • Rms action (on)
  • Rms action (off)
  • Monitoring status
  • More
  • Execution


    To execute a rule, just send an SMS message to the router‘s SIM card number with the rule's SMS Text, e.g., if you send a message with the text “reboot”, the router will reboot if the selected Authorization method is “No authorization”. However, if there is an Authorization method present you will need to include the “Authorization key” in the text message. This “Authorization key” depends on the chosen Authorization method, i.e., if the method is “By serial”, the “Authorization key” is the router’s serial number, if the method is “By router admin password”, the “Authorization key” is the router’s admin password.

    The "Authorization key” must precede the activation text and they must be separated by a space symbol. For example, if the chosen Authorization method is “By router admin password” and the password is “admin01”, the entire message should look like this: “admin01 reboot”. The same applies to “By serial” authorization. By default authorization for SMS utilities are set "By router admin password".

    Rule Overview and editing


    Every default SMS rule can be edited to your liking. If none of the rules suit your purposes, just click the Edit button next to any SMS Utilities rules. This guide will contain information on editing every single SMS Utilities rule.

    Above is an example of what SMS Configuration General and Authorization settings windows looks like, specifically, SMS Configuration for the Reboot rule. Below is a table with detailed explanations on how to configure the rule and what each of the fields mean. To avoid redundancy, screenshots for the other rules will not be provided, since the structures, syntax and the overall look of the configuration windows for each rule are very similar. Instead, only tables containing information on how to edit each rule will be provided.

    Change mobile data settings (cellular) rule


    The Change mobile data settings rule is exceptional to most of the other rules as it does not perform a single action like turning specific services On/Off or getting status updates. It designed to change mobile data settings and it's SMS text can't be described by a single string because the message depends on what configurations you want to change. For example, you can send a message that will change your APN only, you can send a message that will change APN and mobile service mode, or even a message that will change every single mobile setting.

    FIELD NAME DESCRIPTION EXPLANATION, NOTES
    Enable This check box will enable or disable the Change mobile data settings function Allows you to change mobile settings via SMS
    Action The action to be performed when this rule is met. Changes the specified mobile settings
    SMS text SMS text that will trigger the rule SMS text can contain letters, numbers, spaces and special symbols. Capital letters also matter. Default: cellular. Detailed explanations on how to use this function are presented in the table below
    Authorization method What kind of authorization to use for SIM management Possible values:
  • No authorization
  • By serial
  • By router admin password; Default: By router admin password
  • Allowed users White list of allowed users Possible values:
  • From all numbers
  • From group
  • From single number; Default: From all numbers
  • The default SMS text for the Change mobile data settings rule is cellular but it is only an indication text and does not include any specific parameters to be changed. The list of parameters that can be changed and explanations on how to incorporate them into the "cellular" message is presented in the table below.

    PARAMETER VALUE DESCRIPTION DEFAULT MESSAGE EXAMPLE
    apn= e.g., internet Sets APN cellular apn=internet
    dialnumber= e.g., *99***1# Sets Dialing number cellular dialnumber=*99***1#
    auth_mode=
  • none
  • pap
  • chap
  • Sets Authentication method cellular auth_method=pap
    service=
  • 3gonly
  • 4gonly
  • auto
  • Sets the mobile Service mode cellular service=auto
    username= e.g., user Sets the user name for PAP or CHAP authentication cellular username=user
    password= e.g., pass Sets the password for PAP or CHAP authentication cellular password=pass
    roaming= 0 for OFF; 1 for ON Turn Mobile data roaming ON or OFF cellular roaming=0

    Each of the above examples contain a single parameter but you can send out multiple parameters in one message. For example, "cellular apn=internet service=3gonly". This message would set your APN to "internet" and your Service mode to 3G Only. You can also send a message that would include all of the parameters above: "cellular apn=internet dialnumber=*99***1# auth_mode=pap service=3gonly username=user password=pass"


    UCI API rule

    Email to SMS Forwarding is a function that connects to your email account and checks its inbox at the specified frequency. If it finds any new received emails with a specific subject (phone number in email subject), it sends the body of the email as an SMS message(s) to the recipient specified in the email subject field.

    Important note: all POP3 server email messages from inbox will be deleted when using this service. Networking rutos manual mobile utilties email to sms v1.png

    Field name Value Description
    Enable off | on; Default: off Turns Email to SMS Forwarding ON or OFF
    POP3 server host | ip; Default: none Email service provider's POP3 server address (can be looked up online)
    Server port integer [0..65535]; Default: none Email service provider's POP3 server port (can be looked up online)
    User name string; Default: none Email account user name. This is information is used by router in order to atuhenticate itself when connecting to the email client
    Password string; Default: none Email account password. This is information is used by router in order to atuhenticate itself when connecting to the email client
    Secure connection (SSL) yes | no; Default: no SSL is a protocol for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data − a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message
    SMS limit integer; Default: 5 Limit of SMS count that can be contained in the email body of text, SMS length is limited to 160 seven-bit characters. Emails that contain more symbols than it is specified in this field will not be sent as SMS messages
    Check email every time; Default: 1 minute Email inbox check interval
    Interval Minutes | Hours| Days; Default: Minutes Email inbox check interval

    Additional note: you may have noticed that there is no option where you can specify the recipient's phone number. As mentioned earlier, Email to SMS doesn't forward all emails, only the ones that are meant to be forwarded. Only emails with the recipient's phone number in the subject will be forwarded to SMS

    Correct phone number format is:

    • 00 - number must be preceded by two zeros
    • <country_code> - the next following element is the number holder's country code
    • <receivers_number> - phone number of the recipient

    For example, a valid number would be 0037012345678 (370 is country code and 12345678 is the receiver's phone number, all preceded by 00)

    Call Utilities

    Just like SMS Utilities, Call Utilities provide you with the possibility to issue certain commands to the router from your mobile phone. The list of possible rules is of course shorter because you can only make one type of call. Keep that in mind when creating Call Utilities rules because one call will trigger all of the enabled rules at once.

    Call Configuration


    To make a new rule, select what Action you want to make and press Add button.

    In the Read SMS tab you can read and delete received/stored SMS messages. The layout is simple, there is a list of received SMS messages and you can choose how many entries of that list should be visible at one time with SMS per page drop box in the top left corner of the page and there is a Search field to help you navigate more efficiently through the list of messages in the top right corner of the page.
