Error Sending SMS

Hi,

Can any one tell me how to send SMS using Unix shell scripting. My scenario is whenever my count on particular tables exceeds beyond certain limit i need to trigger out an sms to the client. It could be better if there is no third party tools involved in it.

Thanks in advance...

HI,

You just need to send a mail to the your cell phone. If you are using Korn Shell you can try this .

echo "hello" | mailx -s "test" <cell phone no>@serviceproviders.(net/com).

Before using this you need to confirm with the service provider if this facility is allowable from there side.

Hope this helps

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Is there any other way to do it. I think we do not have this facility.

You may also look into a WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) application.
But first follow the advice of amitkhiare, contact your telephone service provider and ask them if they relay e-mail to SMS.

Helo.
I'm afraid that you will have to add new software to your system in order to do so. As far as I know, there's no way to send sms from unix. However, here you are some interesting links. Anyway, you will need a mobile, 3rd party software and/or the help of a service provider.
GNOKII: http://www.gnokii.org/
SMSSEND: http://zekiller.skytech.org/smssend_menu_en.html
SMSClient: http://www.smsclient.org/

If you have a mobile with GSM modem, you can use chat scripts also to send SMS.

Regards.

Hi,

There is a way as amitkhiare said. Using SMS server we don't need any third party tools/software to send SMS from Unix box.

The configuration you need is a username and password on the SMS server.

Thanks,
Saroja.
