  • Connect an RJ-45 network cable. Please use the Ethernet port ETH0.



4. Connect the power cable


  • Connect the power cable to the device. The power indicator will now light up.



5. Network configuration


  • If your network has a DHCP server, it can issue an IP address to the SMS Gateway. If no DHCP is available, the device will start with the standard IP


  • If you do not know the IP address assigned by the DHCP, you have the option of requesting it via the serial port. For this purpose, connect your PC using a terminal program (e.g. PuTTY) and the port cable with the Gateway.


  • The speed of the interface here is 115200 baud (8N1).




  • Klick the open button and type Enter.


  • A text-based interface appears in which the current IP address is shown under the Version menu option. The IP address can be altered as you wish under the Network menu option.



  • If you make the network settings using the serial port, they will only be temporary and will be lost when the Gateway is restarted.


  • Permanent network settings should be made in the web interface.


  • You can now access the web interface via the IP address. Log in here with the user name “admin” and the password “admin”.



6. Licensing




  • After logging into the web interface, you must request a licence for your Gateway. As long as this process has not been completed you will constantly be requested to do so after logging in.




  • After our licensing team has processed the request, you will receive a licensing file which you should upload at this point to the SMS Gateway.




7. SIM card


  • Select SIM card from the Configuration menu option.


  • Enter the PIN of the inserted SIM card here.


  • Select Reboot / shut down from the Configuration menu option.


  • Restart the SMS Gateway.

  • Then select send to number from the SMS menu option.

  • Further assistance is provided in the Help menu option.
