It should be possible with the addition of some third party software.
You might also change serial port configuration to text mode, so you can send text or ascii character to GSM Modem. To send message, send the AT command AT+CMGS to GSM modem.
These links may provide some alternatives as well:

the URL depends on the GSM provider. Ask them, if there is a way to send sms by executing a specific URL

Maybe not easyest but it looks like it cheaper. My GSM provider have a one price for SMS from the URL and second price much cheaper from mobile phone. When I ask "why" they did not know to explain me. So for me its cheaper to buy GSM modem ore, buy phone with com port cable. But still think that the GSM modem is better because I want to insert this system in my network and if I need to do simple comands like reboot I can send SMS with some text and that Mikrotik reboot. In that reason I think that GSM modem is better. But if somebody want to get SMS only when some router ore server is "down" there is some sites for free SMS. You only get some short adwertisements with each SMS which you receive (when something down). I can tolerate this baecause ... it is free. I try with www.wadja.com but did not finish. It will be very intresting if somebody try this.

There was some other conversation about this somewhere, I think you can get a program that can send com-port gsm and call it as an external from the dude...

Hello,

i think the easy Way is. The Dude on an RB an on the Com-Port connect an GSM Modem. The Dude kann send the trap directly to the GSM Interface.

Re: GSM Modem SMS Alert

I have the Dude sending me SMS alerts via a conventional dial-up modem (US Robotics USB modem). I did two things:

1: Write a simple VB app which takes the alert command line and saves it as a text file
2: Write a separate app that looks for these text files and sends them as an SMS message.

I did it this way to decouple the sending of SMS messages (which can be slow) from the generation of alerts (which can be very quick). Both my programs are very simple and written in VB6.

The SMS sender program uses a freeware VB Class Object called cTapProtocol, written by Mike Ball (Google it, you'll find it), which handles the connection and login for the TAP.

I am in the UK, and am using Vodafone UK's TAP number: 07785499993

I already have the Dude sending email alerts, which I can pick up on my smart phone, so I wanted a way of sending messages to cope with the situation where either our email server, or internet connection are down. Works a treat.

Morph.
