Are you going to have a phone connected to your dude server?

If your intenet connection is down how will you send sms?

Just create a new notification that executes a program.
That program sends the sms message to the phone that is connected to your dude server.

On that note I am sure you can run a dial up adapter from a batch job... if you want to dial into another ISP to send the sms.
That would be easier and cheaper if you have a dialup account already.
The batch job would look like this...

RASDial | FindStr /i "My Dialup" > nul 2>&1
If ErrorLevel 1 RASPhone -d "My Dialup"

I am currently using this setup:

A SMS gateway that accepts email and forwards it as an SMS message
A commnd prompt emailer that accepts arguments
I created a batch file that will formulate the message according to the input parameters, (Although I've faced difficulties passing arguments from Dude) anyway, I created few ready made messages that will be triggered as locally executed command.

Also you can follow up this thread for similar issue:

Hey hkunnana

I am not using the Internet to send SMS messages.

I have an SMS gateway machine that was first connected to a cellular phone directly, and now it is connected via leased line with the local cellular communication company.

The SMS gateway is used by various applications in the business, and I am using it to send Network Alerts as well.

As for the SMS gateway, it is a normal PC with Windows XP on it, Actually I have two gateways now (one on a PC, and the other on a VMware machine)

It is not the hardware, it is the S/W (NowSMS)!

I think you should know how your gateway accepts requests. Actually I am not too deep in NowSMS s/w, all I know is that it accepts SMTP and http requests.
I was given an SMTP account for the network alerts and I use a mailing s/w that accepts arguments.

Hello!

I have setted up Dude on my RB/433ah on Ros 3.20.
The Notification-Button shows only "execute locally", no "execute on server"! Why?
I can also send no SMS over my connected Gsm-Modem... With winbox and terminal "/tool smsm send" i can.

regards
