It is not possible to get an error immediately but the Web Connector has an API to request the status of all the Gateways and Connectors. You can check the status of the gateway just before sending a message to make sure that the gateway is still functioning.
Status check API:

Thank you! 🙂

This way I just have to search if Gateway status contains the word "ready". Navigating an XML tree is easy. Now I just have to solve the hardware issue, but that is beyond this scope. 🙂

Hi Lasse,

It is not possible to get an error immediately but the Web Connector has an API to request the status of all the Gateways and Connectors. You can check the status of the gateway just before sending a message to make sure that the gateway is still functioning.
Status check API:

The GSM Modem Gateway has a number of options to reboot the modem when an error occurs. This does not work properly on all modems but you can give it a try to see if the reliability of the modem improves. To enable the reboot, edit the GSM Modem Gateway properties, select Advanced and set the RebootAfterTimeout property to True. There are some other reboot settings that you could try.

Im evaluating Daifaan SMS server and so far it has worked brilliantly, however I found to be annoying.

Im using the GSM gateway and web connector. My problem is my modem stops working once in a while - which makes Daifaan GSM gateway report connection is down. Which is fine in my book.

Howeveer lets say I have a program calling the web api to send a message. The syntax of URL, authentication, phone number and message are coded correctly.

Look at this send message example for reference:

http://www.diafaan.com/applications/web-service-sms-gateway/

Even though gateway is down, I still get a message back from web connector, that accepts and queues the message for ìmmidiate delivery.

Result is delivery is failing, but there are no indication in the web response that delivery failed.

I would expect that instead of getting:

OK: LONG_ID_NUMBER

I would expect something like:

ERROR:300 GSM Gateway is down

Which would make for faster debugging for me, when finding out what is going on.

Is there a way to make web interface report hardware errors back?
