SMS sending over the Internet: CIMD2 - SQL

General overview:

This application can be used to send and receive SMS messages. The software uses the CIMD2 protocol to communicate with the SMS Service Center (SMSC) of the GSM provider. The incoming messages are stored by the application in a database (e.g.: MySql, PostgresSql, Sybase,etc...) table. The outgoing messages are took from the same database by a periodical lookup. If we would like to send an SMS all we have to do is create a record in another database table. The incoming messages are automatically inserted.


- Only one process is activated
- it handles status reports
- can be run by any user account, no administrator privileges are need,
- runs as a daemon
- creates a log file

The package contains the following components:


The main application, that communicates with the service provider and the local database server.


A configuration text file, which contains all the information needed to connect to the SMSC and the database.


The database table definition for MySql database servers.
