Connecting to a GSM/GPRS usb modem using .NET?

34 New Member
hi,
I am doing a project regarding SMS and i am doing it in ASP.NET. My project actually aims at sending message from my PC to mobile and then getting back the reply from the mobile to my pc. I am using a GSM/GPRS USB MODEM for doing this transaction. The doubt that arises in my mind is "whether i will be able to connect to that MODEM using ASP.NET or should i shift to VB.NET". But anyway i have to do it in .Net only.

Can anybody help me out by giving a valuable suggestion. Please.

With the modem only u can't. There are many SMS web services available. Try to use that.

hello

Almost all i am also doing the same project but iam not using asp.net .i am

using c#.net .why u need asp.net if its an web application .for communicating

with gsm modem c# or vb is needed but i dont think that asp.net is required .

and also which version you are using .net1.1 or .net2.0 .

when you are using GSM modem for seneding and receiving sms no need for going to

servers (my opinion) you can store data in your pc itself .

can you give some detailed specification of your project so that i will be much

clearer.

regards

Thanks for that suggestion. But sir, why i am using ASP.NET because, it's the part which i am familiar with and in ASP.NET i will be able to design my form in a good manner.
Telling about the project why i am using GSM modems because i am asked to do the project using that. Here i will be storing the details of my customers with their mailid and their hand phone no in my database. When i type a message and click send, the message should be passed to the customers cell no through this modem. To that particular message the customer will be sending an acknowledgement back. I should receive that particular ack to my pc through the modem. Then the further transactions should take place. I should also send mail's if i am asked to do so. so that's why i am using ASP.Net.

The question is whether i will be able to connect to that particular modem using ASP.Net or should i shift to VB.Net. If i can connect to that particular modem using ASP.Net means i will be really thankful.

The real problem is i am not able to proceed without knowing this detail.
Hope You will help me. If you don't know about this means please ask any of friends and get me a positive reply. Expecting your reply.

Hello karthik

Here you are confusing a lot, first thing is even you use asp.net or not you must

and should use some code behind language(vb.net or c#.net) only by using asp.net

you never do a .net application with out code behind language.

asp.net is a web technology but not a language .

for your application you must have to use either vb.net or c#.net or any other .net

compatable language like vc++,c++ ect..

using only asp.net your problem is not solved..

hope this may make you clear idea ...

Hi !

If you want to do it in ASP.Net then you should go for web services and you can also send SMS through other protocols rather then using Modem. However, if you want to use MODEM in your application.. i would suggest you to do it in VB.Net or C#.Net.

hai nmsreddi,

Ok. i got a idea that i can't do a project in ASP.NET alone. Ok. but if i am writing coding in VB.net or c#.net , whether i will be able to link that coding with my ASP.NET page.

The second case is, if i am not able to connect with the Modem using ASP.NET ?, can i write coding in VB.NET or C#.Net and then bring that code to my ASP.NET page and run my application.

And one more question, please get me a reply for this question. "whether i will be able to connect to the modem (which i already described above) using any of the application in .NET. Without knowing this i can't continue my project. It's an academic one. If "No" is the reply means my project is going to be a failure one. Please don't say "No". If you can't get the answer means , please enquire your friends and get me a positive reply. Please. As soon as possible.

thanks jimmy,

Let me be clear, here i am building an application where i will be able to send mails, send messages(SMS) etc... Mails in the sense if my pc have a net connection means i will be able to send mails. That's why i choose ASP.Net for doing this project. I am little familiar with ASP.Net than c#.Net.

And in the case of message(SMS), i use a GSM/GPRS USB MODEM, which have an place to insert SIM card. So i will be connecting this USB with my pc. This MODEM looks like our Flash Drive(or) Pen Drive. Which have an option of inserting SIM card. So i will be connecting this device with my pc and i have to write coding in such a way that the message i send from my pc should pass through this sim card to other mobile no's(like sending SMS from our mobile). When i get a reply back to the SIM that i am using , it should be send to my pc.

So the problem that i am facing is" I want to know whether i can establish a connection between my Pc and this MODEM and send message through the SIM card. If "yes" means how can i make a connection. Please help me in solving this problem. Because i am not able to move further with my project. It's an academic project. Please help me. If you don't know means please enquire your friends and get me a positive reply. Please
