The Configure link opens the configuration form (Figure 3). On this form select the phone model you have attached to the computer, then specify the serial port. If use use an USB port you must install a USB driver, that will create a virtual COM port for your device. If you use Infra Red (IR), you might have to install IRCom support for your Windows PC, to get a virtual COM port you can use to communicate with your device.
After selecting the serial (COM) port and the phone model you should click on the Autodetect button. During the autodetection phase, Ozeki Message Server will read the capabilities of your phone. If your phone supports SMS messages you will see the model and the brand displayed in the Phone model edit box.
The next step in the configuration is creating a unique name for your device. This name is called the operator name and it is used if more than one devices are attached to your PC. The operator name is typically the name of the GSM company your subscription belongs to. (For example it can be Vodafone, T-mobile, Orange, etc.) When this is done, enter the telephone number of the phone attached to the computer and the SMS Service center address. Important: phone numbers should be entered in international format e.g.: +36209937723 !

The Service Center address is provided by your GSM service provider. Some SMSC addresses are listed in this document. If you don't know the Service Center address of the GSM service provider you should check Appendix "C".
