SMS via COM port using SMSSender Freeware



I would like to share another option to send SMS trough a COM port. Here (http://palkotools.wordpress.com/2011/06/01/smssender-en/) you can download a executable.

Simply create a new notification using EXE, point to SMSSender.exe. In the parameters we use: -p:COM3 -d:+31612345678 -t:int -msg:"%device %name %status %down (%message)"

Note that you can use the variables as PRTG describes.

In a notification template, in the section "Send SMS/Pager Message" you can type multiple comma separated phone numbers. The format depends on your SMS provider. Usual rules are: Start phone numbers with '+', followed by the country code. Do not use spaces in phone numbers.

Best regards
