DNS-345 - Enabling SMS Notifications
« on: January 25, 2013, 07:29:07 AM »

This procedure is designed to enable and configure SMS notifications on the DNS-345. This tutorial uses www.clickatell.com, but can be adapted for other comparable providers.

Service Registration

  • Visit Clickatell - Pricing And Coverage to determine the cost per SMS for your country
    • Note: Pricing is based on the country in which your mobile phone number is regsistered, not the country you are physically located
    • Note: The costs per SMS are listed displayed as credits (rather than EUR, USD or GBP)
  • Visit Clickatell - Sign Up For An Account
    • Category A: If the phone numbers you want to send SMS to are registered in either US, Canada, Latin America, or China, and a monthly fee of $9,95 is not a problem go to http://americas.clickatell.com/pricing-coverage/small-business-api/ - this offer is much cheaper than the normal accounts (only 0.02 credits per SMS instead of 0.058 credits + free US phone number + free incoming messages!)
    • Category B: If the phone numbers you want to send SMS to are registered in one of the listed countries below Special Offers chose your country. The costs per SMS will be lower. Only disadvantage is that you can only send SMS to numbers registered in the country you selected.
    • Category C: If nothing of the above suits your needs select International below Anywhere in the World
  • Enter required personal data and register and activate the new account
  • Log into the new account and go to Billing
  • At least 400 credits must be purchased. If you pay 1 credit per SMS you can send 400 SMS until additional credits must be purchased
  • Go to Manage my Products after credits are purchased
  • Go to Get Connections
  • Click HTTP/S
  • Enter a name of your choice in Description
  • Click Submit and Get API ID
  • Go to My Connections
  • The Name, Type, and API ID of the previously created connection will display (Keep a record of the API ID)

DNS-345 Configuration:

  • Log into the DNS-345 Web UI (i.e. enter the DNS-345 IP address in a browser)
  • Navigate to Management > System Management > Notifications
  • Expand SMS Settings
  • Check the Enable SMS Notifications checkbox
  • Click Add next to SMS service provider
  • Welcome: Click Next
  • Step 1: Enter a name of your choice in Provider Name and copy the following URL into the SMS URL textarea: https://api.clickatell.com/http/sendmsg?user=Username&password=Password&api_id=Other&to=Phone_number&text=Message_content
  • Click Next
  • Step 2: Next to each URL variable, select the following options from the appropriate dropdown menus:
    • user=Username = Username
    • password=Password = Password
    • api_id=Other = Other
    • to=Phone_number = Phone number
    • text=Message_content = Message content
  • Click on Finish
  • Enter your mobile phone number into the field next to Phone number1((to)). Use the international country code but without a leading + or 00, eg. 16465134259 for USA, New York, New York City
  • Enter your Clickatell.com username into User Name(user) and password into Password(password)
  • Enter your Clickatell.com API ID  into Other(api_id)
  • Click Test SMS and the DNS-345 will display an affirmation message if the settings are correct and you will receive an SMS
  • Click Save Settings
