  1. Add an SMPP server instantiation (option group) to the SMS Gateway Server’s configuration file.

    To add an option group, use the following format:


    Any name may be used for the server’s name. All that matters is that the name not be used for any other SMPP server instantiation within the same configuration file.

  2. Set LISTEN_PORT option.

    Select a TCP port number which is not being used by any other server or relay instantiation. Additionally, the port number must not be being used by any other server on the same computer.

    The remote SMSC needs to be configured to route notifications via SMPP to the SMS Gateway Server system using this TCP port.
