Autoreply Easy SMS with pre-written text
Ozeki SMS Gateway's Autoreply Easy User can reply to every incoming SMS with a text of your choice. A txt file stores the text, so you can modify it from your own application or from Ozeki SMS Gateway. This guide explains how to install and configure your Autoreply Easy User.
Autoreply Easy User is very similar to Autoreply User, however it is not capable to forward incoming SMS messages. It is only capable to reply them. This reply can be a plain text or a WAP Push message. If you do not know what WAP Push message is, it is basicly a link to a WAP site or a traditional webpage, placed into an XML encoded message. The reply SMS message can be modified with Ozeki SMS Gateway's user configuration form or your application. You just have to overwrite 'autoreply_NameOfUser.txt' at C:\Program Files\Ozeki\Ozeki10\Data\NG\config\scripts, which is the default location.
Only the reply message is editable. This is why it is called Autoreply Easy User. Unlike Autoreply User, the filtering rules are not applicable and forwarding rules cannot be set. Autoreply Easy User replies to all incoming messages.
These keywords will be replaced to the appropriate values in each reply:
Autoreply Easy Users can be installed and configured through Ozeki SMS Gateway's browser GUI.
Installing Autoreply Easy User
The right-hand panel of the 'Management' console is called 'Users/Applications'. Click the 'Add' button (Figure 1). You can also add users by selecting 'Users and applications/Add user or application' from the top-menu bar.
You will see two panels on the new page (Figure 2):
The panel on the left shows the list of users and applications. On the bottom of the panel you can see how much users and applications are currently installed.
The right side panel is where you can search the user or application you would like to install. You can also find a brief description next to them. Please find the Autoreply Easy User and click the blue 'install' link (Figure 2).
The installation is very simple. You just need to provide a unique username and click 'OK'.
Configuring Autoreply Easy User
After clicking 'OK', you will be on the 'Autoreply script' tabpage of the 'Configuration' panel (Figure 3).
Configuring user Log Generation
Find the 'Logging' tabpage on the Autoreply Easy User's 'Configuration' panel. Log user message flow and low level communications as well. It helps you to debug communication problems if you place a tick in both checkboxes (Figure 4).
Set 'Log file settings' in the groupbox below the checkboxes. The default directory to store your logs is C:\Program Files\Ozeki\Ozeki10\Data\NG\Logs. Set the maximum file size in kB and the maximum number of log files as well. Everytime the size of a log file gets bigger, a new file is going to be created and this new file replaces the oldest file if the file number limit has been reached. You can set the maximum number of files next to the 'Number of rotated files' sign.'Logging' tabpage's default values:
These boxes should remain unchanged if you prefer these values.
Click the 'Advanced' tabpage to reach advanced settings (Figure 5). Here you can set the username and password pair to log into Ozeki SMS Gateway. You can modify the address belonging to the Autoreply Easy User as well.
On the middle you can select the 'Type of Addressbook' you prefer. You can configure it on the left-hand panel.
In the lower left corner you can 'Allow routing table override' to allow SMS Gateway to automatically select the service provider for each message. In the right corner you can 'Enable accounting for this user' to apply a credit limit. Each SMS message costs one credit. Add credits to the user by clicking 'Settings' on the panel to your left.
You can schedule when the Autoreply Easy User will reply to incoming messages. It is turned off as default as you can see it on Figure 6. If it is turned on, SMS messages received before or after the schedule will not be replied.
If you have finished the configuring your Autoreply Easy User, click 'OK' to save it.
You can always come back to check events or modify configuration. You can do this by selecting your user on the 'Users/Applications' panel and clicking appropriate button on the left hand panel (Figure 7)
