The SMS Modules allow you to both send and receive messages through Cast-Control. It is possible to configure SMS events alongside the standard email event templates. The Modules can also be used to control purchased services by starting, stopping, restarting shoutcast & AutoDJ services or updating passwords, scheduling playlists ect.
There are currently four options with the SMS configuration which are explained here.
Select your preferred gateway, it is best to select a gateway that deals closest with your country as not all gateways will provide premium international access. For example, txtlocal.co.uk have a premium link with mobile connections in the UK while only a standard link for most international locations. This means that numbers that have been either created or changed in the last 6-12 months might not be available.
This functionality creates a secure socket to your provider, most providers will support this functionality and this is recommended.
Allow customers to send commands to the number to control their shoutcast & autodj services. The notification URL should be set to http://yourdomain.com/panel/castcontrol/receivesms.php. See the configuration documentation specific to your gateway for more information.
Send a confirmation to authorised numbers that send a command to the sms service control.Please note that if your gateway charges per message, this will incur the standard fee PER MESSAGE.
