Nokia 2110 cellular phone SMS driven by Linux-system?

Post by Markus Schleg » Sat, 26 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Hello everyone!

I am looking for information on whether (and with which software
packages) it is possible to use the SMS send (and receive) capability
of a Nokia 2110 in connection with a PC running under Linux-OS?

It would be nice if you could give me some hints in the right
direction there.

If you have no such information, I would be glad if you could -
alternatively - point me to information on where I can find more
documentation about Nokia's Cellular Ware, and how it makes use
of the SMS-capabilities of the 2110.

Best thanks
Markus Schlegel

P.S.: Though I try to make sure to read this group regularly, not all
articles seem to arrive at my newsserver which originate in this
group, so a cc: via e-mail would be appreciated, as well.

1. kinternet, ppp, irda & nokia 6210 cellular phone modem


on my dell-inspiron7500-suse7.3-box i'm trying
to establish a ppp-conection to my provider
via the ir-port using the built-in modem of
my nokia 6210 and kinternet but i never get
across the first ppp-packet sent before pppd
dies with err-code 16.

i've set up the irda-system as usual and have
checked with more /proc/net/irda/discovery
that my laptop sees the cellular, i.e.:

IrLMP: Discovery log:
nickname: Nokia 6210, hint: 0xb125, saddr:
0x804305ce, daddr: 0x11790000

also, with irdadump i've checked that there
is ir-traffic between the cellular and the
next i've used yast2 to create a new provider
which adds something like this the my
wvdial.conf file

 > more /etc/wvdial.conf
[Dialer modem1]
Dial Command=ATDT
Dial Prefix=
YaST2 Record=modem

[Dialer Nokia_6210]
Ask Password=0
Auto DNS=1
Auto Reconnect=0
Idle Seconds=3600
Inherits=Dialer modem1
YaST2 Record=provider

the various init-strings i grabed from
a windooze setup of the nokia 6210 which
works without problem .....!"$%&/()=?

so now, when i use 'kinternet' to connect to my
cooperates site i only get up to the CONNECT
(so. hand-shaking and all that seems to work well)
after that kinternet tries to exchange username
and passwd several times but fails and the
pppd daemon dies with exit code 16.

checking the messages i get
# tail -n 20 /var/log/messages

Apr 28 22:24:10 dell1 pppd[4928]: Connection terminated.
Apr 28 22:24:10 dell1 pppd[4928]: Exit.

if i compare this to my 'usual' logins via my
pcmcia-modem (which works just fine) it seems
that pppd is waiting for some kind of 'rcvd' after
the first 'pppd[4928]: sent...' but never gets it ?

your help and any clue on whats wrong here would be
most appreciated.
