Program is stable, book and DVD updated
Hello users,

I did not receive any bug report for a while, therefore version 2.2.14 is still the latest one.

However, Keijo Kasvi is working on his own extended version 3.x which is downloadable on

For both versions, you might buy my book SMS Applications, that has been updated today.

Program runs absolutely stable
Hello people,

I tested the version 1.14.3 at vodafone germany for 3 weeks sending and receiving messages every minute. The program ran absolutely stable.

I used a 4 years old Linux server for this test. The program did not cause any problems on the other software that runs on the same PC. A temporary CPU load of 100% caused by the other server software did not introduce any problem. All messages (of more than 20.000) were received correctly and all sent messages reached the receiver.

The version 1.14.3 is pretty good useable for business.

patch against 1.8.0
The program could fail while it was moving a file: if the destination-partition is, for example, full, bad things could happen (the program could ultimately crash). Furthermore, I changed some buffer-sizes to PATH_MAX so that they have the correct length for filenames. smsd did not check if a memory-allocation call succeeded or not.
You can find the patch here:

Another interesting project for SMS delivery
Check out Kannel, which - in addition of supporting GSM modems, support SMS message centers with various protocols. Kannel also doesn't use file queues, but internat queues and HTTP messaging for input and output.

Good stuff
Having written software to talk to a Falcom A2D-1 in the past, I found some properly written software a good find. Working well for me so far, I've only had it in for a few days.
