the preferred method is to use a usb cable to connect your phone to the computer.

i've heard that motorola phones are the fastest for sending messages (7-12 sms/minute), but i know not all motorola phones work with linux. use google and find the cheapest phone that works with linux. i use gnokii; you could read its docs.

it Worked !

Postby zaib » Sun Aug 24, 2008 1:10 pm

I have successfully implemented the GNOKII, my NOKIA 9300i is connected with USB cable with my Monitoring PC, and it have scripts running,
so whenever my WAN link breakup, or any server/service goes down, it sends me sms about the event.

Good tool for 24x7 monitoring.

Steps I used to setup Mobile Monitoring System.


1) Any compatible mobile (Get list from www.gnokii.org)
2) USB / Serial Cable / IRda / Bluetooth

On FEDORA , I install GNOKII simply by

# yum -y install gnokii
(or it can be downloaded from www.gnokii.org)

After installation, I edit /etc/gnokiirc
My working config file is as follows ...

# cat /etc/gnokiirc
=======================================================

[global]
port = /dev/ttyACM0 (It can be different as per your cable type, for listing c website)
initlength = default
connection = dku2libusb (It can b different as per your mobile model type supports)
model = 6230
use_locking = yes
serial_baudrate = 19200
sm_retry = 1
smsc_timeout = 10
allow_breakage = 0
[gnokiid]
bindir = /usr/sbin/
TELEPHONE = 03333021909 (to set default number)
[disconnect_script]
[logging]
debug = on
rlpdebug = off
xdebug = off
=======================================================

To check if GNOKII is detecting the mobile, you can use command
# gnokii --identify

To send SMS using command mode or in script,
# echo "Test Msg using GNOKII " | gnokii --sendsms +92333021909

You can also use graphics ver of gnokii named GNOCKY , its fun also :)

there's another easy way of sending sms notifications by using any web based SMS services like the one offered by Mobilink (Corporate SMS) which I'm using currently with Nagios and its working really fine. You just have to write a simple script and use that with Nagios.
hail to linux!!!
