Ozeki Message Server 6

SMS API for ASP developers

Ozeki Message Server can be used to send out SMS messages from an ASP application. In order to send a message, the application must perform an HTTP request. The built in webserver of the Ozeki Message Server receives the request and adds the posted SMS message to the outgoing message queue. After some time the message will be sent. (The status of the outgoing message can be queried by subsequent HTTP requests)

To send an SMS message from ASP, you may use the following code. This example will send a text message containing the text Hello World to the telephone number +36205222245.



    Dim strMsg
    Dim strReceiver
    Dim strUrl
    'Retrieve the posted items from the HTTP-SMS gateway
    strUrl = "http://localhost:9333/ozeki?"
    strRequest = "login=admin";
    strRequest = strRequest+"&password=abc123";
    strRequest = strRequest+"&action=sendMessage";
    strRequest = strRequest+"&messageType=SMS:TEXT";
    strRequest = strRequest+"&recepient="+Server.URLEncode("+36205222245");
    strRequest = strRequest+"&messageData="+Server.URLEncode("Hello World");

    strUrl = strUrl+strRequest;
    'Create InternetExplorer
    Dim WebBrowser: Set WebBrowser = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

    WebBrowser.Navigate strUrl
    Do While WebBrowser.busy

    'Display message info to the user
    Response.Write("The message has been sent . " + chr(13))

Binary message types such as WAP PUSH messages, Operator Logos and Ringtones can also be sent using this technique. All you have to do is change the messageType field and the messageData field to the appropriate message content.
