       gammu-smsdrc - gammu-smsd(1) configuration file




       gammu-smsd(1) reads configuration from a config file. It’s location can
       be specified on command line, otherwise default path  /etc/gammu-smsdrc
       is used.

       This  file  use ini file syntax, with comments being marked with both ;
       and #.  Sections of config file are identified in square brackets  line
       [this]. All key values are case insensitive.

       Configuration  file  of  gammu-smsd consists of at least two sections -
       [gammu] and [smsd].

       The [gammu] section is configuration of a phone connection and is  same
       as  described  in  gammurc(5)  with  the only exception that logfile is
       ignored and common logging for gammu library and SMS  daemon  is  used.
       However  the  logformat  directive  still  configures how much messages
       gammu emits.

       The [smsd] section configures SMS daemon itself, which are described in
       following  subsections.  First  general  parameters  of  SMS daemon are
       listed and then specific parameters for storage backends.

       Then   there    are    optional    sections    [include_numbers]    and
       [exclude_numbers], which control message filtering (see bellow).

   General parameters of SMS daemon

              SMSD service to use, one of FILES, MYSQL, PGSQL, DBI (depends on
              compiled in support for backends).

              FILES - stores messages in files,  see  gammu-smsd-files(7)  for
              MYSQL  -  stores  messages  in  MySQL  database, see gammu-smsd-
              mysql(7) for details
              PGSQL - stores messages in PostgreSQL database, see  gammu-smsd-
              pgsql(7) for details
              DBI  - stores messages in any database supported by libdbi, this
              includes MSSQL,  MySQL,  PostgreSQL  or  SQLite  databases,  see
              gammu-smsd-dbi(7) for details

       PIN      PIN  for  SIM card. This is optional, but you should set it if
              your phone after power on requires PIN.


              Network personalisation password. This  is  optional,  but  some
              phones require it after power on.


              Phone  lock  password. This is optional, but some phones require
              it after power on.


              File where SMSD actions are  being  logged.  You  can  also  use
              special  value  "syslog"  which will send all messages to syslog
              daemon. On Windows  another  special  value  "eventlog"  exists,
              which will send logs to Windows Event Log.

              Default is to provide no logging.


              Debug  level  for  SMSD.  The integer value should be sum of all
              flags you want to enable.

              1 - enables basic debugging information
              2 - enables logging of SQL queries of service backends
              4 - enables logging  of  gammu  debug  information  (has  to  be
              enabled also in gammu section)

              Generally to get as much debug information as possible, use 255.

              Default is 0, what should mean no extra information.


              How many seconds should SMSD wait after each read/write loop.

              Default is 30.


              Shows how many seconds  SMSD  should  wait  for  network  answer
              during  sending  sms.   If  nothing happen during this time, sms
              will be resent.

              Default is 30.


              How many times will SMSD try to resend message if sending fails.

              Default is 1.


              The  number  of seconds between testing for received SMSes, when
              the phone is busy sending SMSes. Normally a  test  for  received
              SMSes is done every CommTimeout seconds and after each sent SMS.

              Default is 0 (not used).


              Whether to check if phone wants to enter PIN.

              Default is 1 (enabled).


              The number of seconds between performing a preventive soft reset
              in order to minimize the cases of hanging phones e.g. Nokia 5110
              will sometimes freeze to a state when only after unmounting  the
              battery the phone will be functional again.

              Default is 0 (not used).


              Whether  delivery  reports  should  be used, one of ’no’, ’log’,

              log - one line log entry,
              sms - store in inbox as a received SMS
              no  - no delivery reports

              Default is ’no’.


              Delay in seconds how long is still  delivery  report  considered
              valid.  This  depends  on  brokeness  of  your network (delivery
              report should have same timestamp  as  sent  message).  Increase
              this if delivery reports are not paired with sent messages.

              Default is 600 (10 minutes).


              String  with  info  about phone used for sending/receiving. This
              can be useful if you want to run several SMS daemons.

              When you set PhoneID, all  messages  (including  injected  ones)
              will  be  marked by this string and it allow more SMS daemons to
              share single database. This option has  actually  no  effect  of
              FILES backend service.


              Executes  a  program  after receiving message. This parameter is
              executed through shell, so you might need to escape some special
              characters  and  you  can  include  any  number  of  parameters.
              Additionally parameters with identifiers  of  received  messages
              are appended to the command line. The identifiers depend on used
              service backend, typically it is ID of inserted row for database
              backends or file name for file based backends.

   Database backends options
       All   DBI,   MYSQL   and   PGSQL  backends  (see   gammu-smsd-mysql(7),
       gammu-smsd-pgsql(7),  gammu-smsd-dbi(7))   for   their   documentation)
       supports same options for configuring connection to a database:

       User    User name used for connection to a database.


              Password used for connection to a database.

       PC       Database  server  address.  It can also contain port or socket
              path after semicolon, for example localhost:/path/to/socket.


              Name of database to use. Please  note  that  you  should  create
              tables  in  this database before using gammu-smsd. SQL files for
              creating needed tables are included in documentation.


              When you send sms from some SMS centere you  can  have  delivery
              reports  from other SMSC number. You can set here number of this
              SMSC used by you and Gammu will not  check  it’s  number  during
              assigning reports to sent SMS.

       Driver   DBI  driver  to  use.  Depends  on  what  DBI drivers you have
              installed, DBI supports: mysql, freetds (provides access  to  MS
              SQL  Server  and  Sybase),  pgsql, sqlite, sqlite3, firebird and
              ingres, msql and oracle drivers are under development.


              Path, where DBI drivers are stored, this usually does  not  have
              to be set if you have properly installed drivers.

       DBDir    Database  directory  for  some  (currently  only  sqlite)  DBI
              drivers. Set here path where sqlite database files are stored.

   Files backend options
       The  FILES  backend  accepts  following  configuration   options.   See
       gammu-smsd-files(7)  for  more  detailed  service  backend description.
       Please note that all path should contain trailing path separator (/  on
       Unix systems):


              Where the received SMSes are stored.

              Default is current directory.


              Where SMSes to be sent should be placed.

              Default is current directory.


              Where  the  transmitted  SMSes are placed, if same as OutBoxPath
              transmitted messages are deleted.

              Default is to delete transmitted messages.


              Where SMSes with error in transmission is placed.

              Default is same as SentSMSPath.


              The format in which the SMS will be stored: ’detail’, ’unicode’,

              detail   - format used for message backup by gammu(1)
              unicode  - message text stored in unicode (UTF-16)
              standard - message text stored in system charset

              Default is ’unicode’.


              The  format for transmitting the SMS: ’auto’, ’unicode’, ’7bit’.

              Default is ’auto’.

   Message filtering
       SMSD allows to process only limited subset of  incoming  messages.  You
       can define filters in [include_numbers] and [exclude_numbers] sections.
       If [include_numbers] section exists, all values (keys are ignored) from
       it are used as allowed phone numbers and no other message is processed.
       On the other side, in [exclude_numbers] you can specify  numbers  which
       you want to skip.


       There is more complete example available in Gammu documentation. Please
       note that for simplicity following  examples  do  not  include  [gammu]
       section, you can look into gammurc(5) for some examples how it can look

       SMSD configuration file for FILES backend could look like:

              Service = files
              PIN = 1234
              LogFile = syslog
              InboxPath = /var/spool/sms/inbox/
              OutboPpath = /var/spool/sms/outbox/
              SentSMSPath = /var/spool/sms/sent/
              ErrorSMSPath = /var/spool/sms/error/

       If you want to use MYSQL backend, you will need something like this:

              Service = mysql
              PIN = 1234
              LogFile = syslog
              User = smsd
              Password = smsd
              PC = localhost
              Database = smsd

       Process only messages from 123456 number:

              number1 = 123456

       Do not process messages from evil number 666:

              number1 = 666
