Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

Its the Exetel Virtual Mobile Number SMS -> HTTP POST notification that is the issue here (the URL for the notifi...

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

Slight update, the '<' character doesnt work either and truncates exactly the same as ampersand.

This would be consistent with a command line not being escaped correctly, given that '<' is another character used for console functions.

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

I havent had a reply to the email / support ticket raised for this, although the one I sent regarding the voicemail was replied to very quickly (in usual Exetel fashion).

I'm guessing the other one is just working its way through the chain until it finds someone who can answer it :P

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

Nice description, cheers. So could changing the ISF to a character not accessible in the SMS standard (or at least, rarely used) be a simple solution to this? Though I'm sure there would be a knock-on effect. Also I just found that I cant put a voicemail message on my virtual mobile to alert people ...

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

Do you know how the Exetel script is coded? I wouldnt have a clue, I guess its why I'm asking here :P All I've really got to go on is my access.log entry: 220.233.0.46 - - [17/Oct/2010:03:16:01 -0700] "POST /post_sms.php HTTP/1.1" 200 168 "-" "-" And the bit of code I wrote to capture the $_POST ar...

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

For further proof, I created a post form on a totally different host altogether (its even in a different country ;)) and submitted that and the test.php file happily receives the full message, ampersand and all.

It has to be the Exetel script that submits the POST notification, right? :?

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

It looks like the ampersand etc are interpreted in the POST. A Bash approach could be to use curl with the --data-urlencode argument to do the encoding. You can place the whole message in a variable, using backslashes if quotation marks are desired. PS see urlencode and htmlspecialchars in PHP. I h...

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

Have you "escaped" the punctuation / message string? "&" is a special character, used in HTML and delimits variables in querystrings. "This is & test of & symbol and star * symbol and caret ^ symbol" would become "This is %26 test of %26 symbol and star * symbol and caret ^ symbol" I dont receive t...

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

I think there is a problem that hopefully isnt caused by my lack of ability.... When an SMS contains an '&' character, the POST does not appear to contain all the information. For example, I sent this message: Message This is & test of & symbol and star * symbol and caret ^ symbol ... but the URL it...

Re: Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

After a bit of fiddling around I worked it out. Dont put any 'http://' at the start ^_^ Interesting side note, if you have an Apache server running a redirect (for example to bring everyone to http://www.domain.com who arrives at domain.com), make sure you use the final destination instead of the ve...

Virtual Mobile 'HTTP-POST' Notification Not Working?

G'day, I've got a virtual mobile that I was hoping to use the URL HTTP-POST notification on, but it doesnt seem to be doing the actual POST? I'm currently tailing the access.log and can see myself GET'ing the php file I want to use, and have made a temporary page which is just a form that uses POST ...

SMS Coming from +61427895844

G'day

Is there something wrong with the SMS via ADSL service at the moment?

All my SMSs appear to be coming from +61427895844 instead of my number.

Cheers,
trk
