Help with PySMS

P: n/a
Hello -

Background:

I'm not a coder, but I got a degree in Chem Engg about 7 years ago. I
have done some
coding in my life, and I'm only beginning to pick up Python. So assume
that I'm very stupid
when and if you are kind enough to help me out.

Problem:

I need an SMS server running on my WinXP PC, as soon as possible. I'm
currently using a Nokia 6300 phone which has the S60 platform. I
downloaded the PySMS by Dave Berkeley from
http://www.wordhord.co.uk/pysms.html and started testing it, but I
haven't been able to get it working. Maybe I don't know how to do some
configurations before using it, I dunno. I'm pretty lost.

Do I need to tweak Nokia.ini? What ports am I supposed to use? Can
anybody tell me a step-by-step way of setting up and getting this
thing running?

I don't have enough to pay for this information, or I would gladly
shell out some cash. But I can bet that I'll be able to help you out
with something or the other in the future, if not money. And I am
willing to negotiate a portion of royalties if I make any money off
this project. My project is very simple - I will use incoming SMS to
generate a visualisation and automatic responder. This system will be
part of a multiplayer game that lots of people can play using SMS.

cheers,

Have you contacted the author? He might be able to help you out much
more effectively than we can.

I've extended the t616hack distribution to deal with messages - it
contains a library which is used to communicate with Sony Ericsson
telephones using AT commands - and that might give you some ideas
about the principles involved. See here for the package:

http://www.python.org/pypi/t616hack

One significant enhancement made to t616hack is support for Bluetooth
sockets, meaning that you don't need to worry about baud rates, serial
devices and other low-level details. There's no direct support for a
message server, but I have a Web application that I use personally for
accessing messages on my telephone.

Maybe you can try python binding for gammu, which works great for me.

I'm going to try and setup Gammu today. I'm using a DKU-2
cable connection. The Gammu guide says that:"Before you will try
connect to Gammu, you have to install gnapplet application in phone
first. Later steps depends on connection type. For example for
Bluetooth use "bluerfgnapbus" connection and model "gnap" and device
addresss as "port". You can read notes described below for infrared
and Bluetooth too. Cables connections (DKE-2, DKU-2, etc.) are not
supported by gnapplet now."

Now I'm having some trouble catching Bluetooth on my laptop, I don't
know why - maybe the radio died. So now it's unclear whether this
gnapplet thingie stillneeds to be on my Nokia 6300 even if I'm going
through the cable route.

Any hints?
