SMS GATEWAY is a sms via a shortcode transaction, in which we can send and receive messages up to many thousands. Here I will apply an SMS GATEWAY. Tools for software I would use is Gammu as SMS GATEWAY and turkeys as a medium to receive and send through the source code php while for the hardware required is a modem that I use is iTegno WM1080A +.

Create a file gammurc to check pc connection to the modem;
@ HB-OS: ~ $ sudo nano /etc/gammurc (browse the file by typing the below
device = /dev/ttyUSB3
connection = at115200

  • type this command to detect the modem;

@ HB-OS: ~ $ Gammu – identify (will show logs like this)





  • After detecting a successful modem, now connect the modem to MYSQL database Gammu, Gammu-edit file smsdrc
