Greetings,

 

I just purchased the WD 8 TB My Cloud drive. It supports sending SMS, but in order to set it up, I have to provide a specifically formatted URL. The setup page says:

 

"The format of this URL is provided by the SMS service provider, and the URL must include the following parameters: username, password, destination phone, and message content. Using Clickatell as an example, a possible URL is: https://api.clickatell.com/http/sendmsg?user=TestUser&password=TestPassword&api_id=3148203&to=886123..."

 

Is it possible to send SMS through a URL?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

I've seen the send-a-message format: 6041234567@msg.telus.com, and NAS that send emails, but this one is new to me.  It might require your own SMS gateway ☹️

I suppose I will have to use the email format you mentioned. The only thing I don't like about this is that it shows the 'from' number as "(999) 999-9999".

 

Thanks,

Shane.
