       gammu-smsd - SMS daemon for Gammu


       gammu-smsd [OPTION]...


       This manual page documents briefly the gammu-smsd command.

       gammu-smsd  is a program that periodically scans GSM modem for received
       messages, stores them  in  defined  storage  and  also  sends  messages
       enqueued in this storage.

       The  daemon  can  reload configuration file after sending hangup signal
       (SIGHUP) and properly terminates itself on SIGINT and SIGTERM.

       Program accepts following options (please note that long options  might
       be not accepted on some platforms):

       -h, --help
              Shows help.

       -v, --version
              Shows version information and compiled in features.

       -c, --config=file
              Configuration  file  to  use,  default  is /etc/gammu-smsdrc, on
              Windows there is no default and configuration file path  has  to
              be always specified.

       -p, --pid=file
              Lock  file  for storing pid, empty for no locking. Not supported
              on Windows.

       -U, --user=user
              Drop daemon privileges to chosed user after starting.

       -G, --group=group
              Drop daemon privileges to chosen group after starting.

       -d, --daemon
              Daemonize program on startup. Not supported on Windows.

       -i, --install-service
              Installs SMSD as a Windows service.

       -u, --uninstall-service
              Uninstalls SMSD as a Windows service.

       -s, --start-service
              Starts SMSD Windows service.

       -k, --stop-service
              Stops SMSD Windows service.

       -X, --suicide=seconds
              Kills itself after number of seconds.

       -S, --run-service
              Runs pogram as SMSD Windows service. This  should  not  be  used
              manually,  but  only  Windows  Service  manager  should use this

       -n, --service-name=name
              Defines name of a Windows  service.  Each  service  requires  an
              unique  name,  so if you want to run several SMSD instances, you
              have to name each service differently. Default is "GammuSMSD".


   Linux/Unix Examples
       Start SMSD as a deamon on Linux:

              gammu-smsd        --config        /etc/gammu-smsdrc        --pid
              /var/run/ --daemon

       Start SMSD as a deamon on Linux with reduced privileges:

              gammu-smsd        --config        /etc/gammu-smsdrc        --pid
              /var/run/ --daemon --user gammu --group gammu

       SMSD as a system wide daemon

              To use SMSD as a daemon, you might want to use init script which
              is  shipped  with  Gammu  in  contrib/init  directory. It is not
              installed by  default,  either  install  it  manually  or  check
              INSTALL file for instructions.

   Windows Service Examples
       Install Gammu SMSD Windows service:

              gammu-smsd.exe -c c:\Gammu\smsdrc -i

       Install two instances of SMSD Windows service:

              gammu-smsd.exe -c c:\Gammu\smsdrc-1 -n Gammu-first-phone -i

              gammu-smsd.exe -c c:\Gammu\smsdrc-2 -n Gammu-second-phone -i

       To uninstall a Windows service:

              gammu-smsd.exe -u

   Troubleshooting Windows Service
       If  Gammu  fails  to  start  as a Windows service (you will usually get
       "Error 1053: The service did  not  respond  to  the  start  or  control
       request  in  a timely fashion"), first check your SMSD logs. If they do
       not contain any useful hint, try starting SMSD  manually  with  exactly
       same parameters as you installed the service (without -i), for example:

           gammu-smsd.exe -c smsdrc

       You now should be able to get errors from SMSD  even  if  it  fails  to
       start as a service.
