If you need the ability for all connected handsets (smartphones and feature phones) to be able to send/receive MMS messages this is the page you are looking for.
We did interoperate with the MMSC element of NowSMS for commercial networks that support regular MMS and attachments.
For Group Messaging please check their documentation.
The addition of MMS requires:
The purpose is to allow the devices to use the MM1 protocol to MMSC and to allow the MMSC to map the IP address to a subscriber MSISDN.There is no MMS Access Point configured so you need to add one using the MMI web interface:
Name: mms IPv: IPv4 QoS: true Primary DNS IPv4: 188.8.131.52 (isn't actually used) MTU IPv4: 1400 Address: 10.0.4.3 (or copy it from another APN if you changed MiniCore configuration
Tunnel: tun-mms IPv4 Pool: 10.0.150.2-10.0.150.254 Associate to Access Point(APN): mms IPv4 Interface: 10.0.150.1/24 Interface MTU: 1400
iptables -t mangle -A FORWARD -i tun-mms -p tcp -m tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS --clamp-mss-to-pmtu iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables urpmi yate-ucn-icap
- Please configure your IP routing so the tun-mms addresses can have access to NowSMS without any NAT.
The purpose is to allow the MMSC to send binary SMS for MMS arrival notification.
The SMPP is not configured so you will need to do the following from the root console:
[general] server=smpp-server [smpp-server] enable=true default-service-type=sms transparent_parameters=sms_message_id [listenerserver companyx] enable=yes addr=NN.NN.NN.NN (replace with the desired local IP of YateUCN) port=2775
Create a file /etc/yate/smsc/regfile.conf Edit the file and insert the following:
[minicore] password=XXXXX (replace with the password for NowSMS)
Please give the information below to the NowSMS support team to guide you through the required steps.
Configure a SMPP connection to:
IP address: NN.NN.NN.NN (see above) TCP port: 2775 System ID: yatecore Secret: XXXXX (see above)
- This connection is required so NowSMS can send SMS notifications about incoming MMS.
You may test it with regular SMS or try send MMS notification
Configure ICAP header enrichment:
IP address: NN.NN.NN.NN (see above) TCP port: 1344
The purpose is to get working the header enrichment, if you chose NowSMS: NowWap and HTTP header enrichment
The package requires the commercial yate-ucn package and can be installed as root with: urpmi.update YateCore && urpmi yate-ucn-icap
When used with MMS for authorization purposes a WAP gateway itself needs some protocol like ICAP so it can map an IP address to a subscriber identity (MSISDN).
Addressing between subscribers uses the phone number (MSISDN) but the phone doesn’t even know it, only the IMSI.
