       smsd - daemon for handling incoming and outgoing SMSes using libgnokii


       smsd [OPTIONS]


       The SMSD (SMS daemon) program is intended for receiving and sending SMSes.

       The  program  is  designed  to  use  modules  (plugins)  to  work with different backends.
       Currently are supported PostgreSQL, MySQL and a special module 'file' which is designed to
       work  without  an  SQL  database  (see  below  for special instructions in the file module
       section). When SMSD uses an SQL server as  a  repository  for  SMSes  you  must  create  a
       database (default name is 'sms') with tables defined in sms.tables.{module}.sql files.

       Table 'inbox' is for received SMSes. SMSD periodically checks a given phone memory to move
       messages to this table.  Only received SMSes and  status  reports  are  deleted  from  the
       phone, other kinds of messages are not removed.

       Table 'inbox' has the following fields:

              number phone number from which is sms received

                     date set by SMS center

                     date SMS was inserted into table

              text   SMS text

              phone  number  of  phone  to  use. If you use smsd without -t option you can ignore
                     this column. See -t option below.

                     smsd sets this always to FALSE. You can use it  for  another  program  which
                     will parse SMSes.

       Table 'outbox' is for outgoing SMSes. SMSD periodically looks into this table and searches
       for lines with attribute 'processed' set to FALSE. If it finds such SMS, it will send  SMS
       to 'number'.

       Table 'outbox' has the following fields:

              number recipient's phone number

                     date of processing SMS.

                     date of inserting SMS in table

              text   SMS text

              phone  number  of phone to use. If you use smsd without -t option you must not fill
                     this column. See -t option below.

                     new SMS must have this attribute set to FALSE. SMSD will send this  SMS  and
                     will update 'processed' to TRUE.

              error  This   attribute  contains  return  value  of  gn_sms_send()  function.  For
                     explanation of numeric values see <gnokii/error.h> in gnokii source.

                     request for delivery report per  message.  Possible  values  are  0  for  no
                     delivery report, 1 for delivery report.

                     sms will not be sent before this time (default 00:00:00).

                     sms will not be sent after this time (default 23:59:59).

       SMSD  is multi threaded program. If you list processes you will see more than one instance
       of smsd.

       This module doesn't need an SQL server to work. For incoming messages it works  in  a  way
       that  it  calls  a  program giving phone number, date as parameter and the message text on
       stdin. In the smsd directory there is an example file action. It shows sms data to stdout.
       If  you  want something useful you must write your own action.   For outgoing messages you
       can set spool directory where smsd looks regularly.

       Incoming sms are passed in format
              action number date < sms

       Outgoing sms must be in format:

       The name of file is unimportant but smsd ignores all files with  prefix  "ERR.".  If  smsd
       succesfully  sends  sms,  it  removes  file from spool directory.  If smsd cannot send sms
       prepends file with "ERR." prefix and ignores it.  If you use -m file, -u (--user)  and  -c
       (--host)  will have other meaning.  -u is for action (action must be executable) -c is for
       spool directory where smsd looks for smses. Smsd must have read and write  permissions  to
       this directory.

       -p, -d parameters have no meaning when -m file is used.

       If  you  don't specify -u, default action is to print sms to stdout.  If you don't specify
       -c, sms sending will be disabled.

       Available options:

       -u, --user db_username
              Specify user name.

       -p, --password db_password
              Specify user password.

       -d, --db db_name
              Specify database name for 'pq' and 'mysql' modules or full path  to  database  file
              for 'sqlite' module (defaults to 'sms').

       -c, --host db_hostname
              Specify database server host name.

       -s, --schema db_hostname
              Specify database schema used by the PostgreSQL module (defaults to 'public').

       -e, --encoding client_encoding
              Specify client encoding for database connection.

       -m, --module db_module
              Specify which module to use for connection to DB server. Currently supported values
              are 'pq' for PostgreSQL, 'mysql' for MySQL, 'sqlite' for SQLite3 and  'file'.  File
              module is not supported in Windows.

       -l, --libdir path_to_db_module
              Specify  path  to DB modules. If you specify pq module, smsd searches in libdir for
              file (for  mysql  -   Do  not  interchange  these
              plugins with default SQL libraries from database distribution!

       -f, --logfile file
              If  used, smsd will monitor sms traffic to file "file". File is reopened and closed
              for every message so you can simply rename or delete it if you want to rotate logs.
              If you use '-' as filename smsd will use standard output.

       -t, --phone phone_number
              You  can run more instances of smsd. One instance per phone. In this setup you must
              configure phone section in the config file. For example:

              port = /dev/ttyS0
              model = 6110
              initlength = default
              connection = serial
              bindir = /usr/local/sbin/
              use_locking = no
              serial_baudrate = 38400
              smsc_timeout = 10
              port = /dev/ttyS0
              model = 6110
              initlength = default
              connection = serial
              bindir = /usr/local/sbin/
              use_locking = no
              serial_baudrate = 38400
              port = /dev/ttyS1
              model = AT
              initlength = default
              connection = serial
              bindir = /usr/local/sbin/
              use_locking = no
              serial_baudrate = 38400
              smsc_timeout = 10

              In this setup if you run smsd without -t option it  will  use  config  from  global
              section.  If  you  run  smsd with -t 1 it will use config from phone_1 and likewise
              with -t 2 uses phone_2. In case of use  -t  option  smsd  fills  phone  number  for
              incoming  sms's  and  in  outbox  it  looks only for sms's with the specified phone
              number in column 'phone'. This behaviour gives you possibility to run one  instance
              of smsd for every phone you have at the same time.

       -i, --interval interval
              Polling interval for incoming sms's in seconds. Default is 1 second.

       -S, --maxsms number
              When  phone  driver  doesn't support sms status it is possible to specify number of
              sms's supported by phone. Default is 10. If driver support sms status  this  option
              is ignored.

       -b, --inbox memory_type
              Where  to look for new messages (defaults to IN for most Nokia phones and to SM for
              all other phones).  For debugging or for unusual setups you can use another  memory
              type  supported  by your phone (eg. IN for the Inbox, OU for the Outbox, AR for the
              Archive, TE for the Templates and F1,...,F20 for your  own  folders).   Use  gnokii
              --showsmsfolderstatus for a list of such memory types.

       -0, --firstpos0
              SMSD  starts  messages  reading  from  position  1. If your phone stores sms's from
              postion 0, use this option.

       -v, --version
              Shows smsd version.

       -h, --help
              Shows short help.


       Various error messages are printed to STDERR.

       Debug output can be enabled setting xdebug=on (for messages specific to SMSD) and debug=on
       (for messages specific to libgnokii) in the configuration file.


       None reported.
