bearerbox, wapbox, smsbox - Parts of Kannel, the WAP and SMS gateway SYNOPSIS
bearerbox [options...] [conffile] wapbox [options...] [conffile] smsbox [options...] [conffile] DESCRIPTION
Kannel is an WAP and SMS gateway. WAP is short for Wireless Application Protocol, and is used to implement hypertext based services on mobile phones. SMS is short for Short Message Service, and is used to send and recive short (up to 160 characters) text messages with mobile phones. SMS can also be used to implement simple text based services on mobile phones. Kannel consists of three programs, usually run as daemons: bearerbox, wapbox, and smsbox. They implement the connection to the phone (SMS or UDP), the WAP protocol stack, and the SMS based services, respectively. For more information, see or file:///usr/share/doc/kannel/. SEE ALSO

gsmsendsms - SMS message sender utility SYNOPSIS
gsmsendsms [ -b baudrate ] [ --baudrate baudrate ] [ -c concatenatedID ] [ --concatenate concatenatedID ] [ -C service centre address ] [ --sca service centre address ] [ -d device ] [ --device device ] [ -h ] [ --help ] [ -I init string ] [ --init init string ] [ -r ] [ --requeststat ] [ -t ] [ --test ] [ -v ] [ --version ] [ -X ] [ --xonxoff ] phonenumber [ text ] DESCRIPTION
gsmsendsms sends SMS short messages using an GSM mobile phone. gsmsendsms attaches itself to the device given on the command line (usually an GSM modem) using the specified baudrate. If no device is given, the device /dev/mobilephone is used. If no baudrate is given, a default baud rate of 38400 is used. gsmsendsms accepts a phone number (recipient address) and the short message text as parameters. The text may have a maximum length of 160 characters which is the maximum SMS message length. The GSM default alphabet is used for encoding. ASCII and Latin-1 characters that can not be encoded using the GSM default alphabet are converted to the GSM delta character (GSM code 16). Error messages are printed to the standard error output. If the program terminates on error the error code 1 is returned. OPTIONS
-b baudrate, --baudrate baudrate The baud rate to use. -c concatenatedID, --concatenate concatenatedID If an ID is given, large SMSs are split into several, concatenated SMSs. All SMSs have the same ID and are numbered consecutively so that the receiving phone can assemble them in the correct order. IDs must be in the range 0..255. Not all receiving phones will sup- port concatenated SMSs (and display them as separate SMSs), since all the numbering and ID information is carried in the user data header element at the beginning of the SMS user data. This information may show up as garbage in such phones. -C service centre address, --sca service centre address Sets the service centre address to use for all SUBMIT SMSs (may not work with some phones). -d device, --device device The device to which the GSM modem is connected. The default is /dev/mobilephone. -h, --help Prints an option summary. -I init string, --init init string Initialization string to send to the TA (default: "E0"). Note that the sequence "ATZ" is sent first. -r, --requeststat Request status reports for sent SMS. -t, --test If this option is given the text is converted to the GSM default alphabet and back to Latin-1. This option can be used to find out how ASCII or Latin-1 texts are converted to the GSM default alphabet. Characters that can not be converted to the GSM default alpha- bet are reported as ASCII code 172 (Latin-1 boolean "not") after this double conversion. No SMS messages are sent, a connection to a mobile phone is not established. -v, --version Prints the program version. -X, --xonxoff Uses software handshaking (XON/XOFF) for accessing the device. EXAMPLES
The following two invocations of gsmsendsms each send the same SMS message to the number "1234": gsmsendsms -d /dev/ttyS2 -b 19200 1234 "This is a test." echo "This is a test." | gsmsendsms -d /dev/ttyS2 -b 19200 1234 FILES
/dev/mobilephone Default mobile phone device. AUTHOR
