Add an action to send a pager or SMS message via NotePager Pro

Table of contents
No headers

This feature is available only in the licensed version.

You can add an action to send a pager, SMS, or email message via the NotePagerPro application. Before you create this action, you must first purchase and install NotePager Pro. NotePager Pro is an inexpensive but powerful paging and SMS gateway application. Features include:

  • Group messaging capabilities
  • Multiple carrier support including cellular and paging carriers
  • Supports internet paging protocols including SNPP, WCTP and SMTP
  • Supports scheduled messaging, repeating messages, and pre-programmed messages

See the NotePager website to download the application.

When a message is passed to NotePager Pro, it places the messages in the sending queue. NotePager Pro checks the queue periodically and then sends them via the method you have specified. This could be via SNPP, e-mail, modem, TAPI, or what ever paging interface you have configured.

  1. Choose File > Setup to open the Kiwi Syslog Server Setup dialog box.
  2. Add or locate the rule that the action applies to.
  3. Right-click the Actions node below the rule, and choose Add Action.
  4. Replace the default name with a descriptive name. (The name does not have to be unique.)
  5. From the Action menu, select Send message via NotePager Pro.

  6. Specify the following options.

    Send page to

    Select a recipient from the drop down list. The list is automatically populated from the NotePager Pro Recipients and Groups database. If no names are available in the drop down list, then NotePager Pro has not been installed correctly.

    You can choose either a single recipient or a group of recipients to send to. For example:

    Send to: Joe

    or

    Send To: All-Network-Staff

    Message from

    Enter any descriptive name. If the recipient is configured in NotePager Pro to receive the message via e-mail, the From name you specify will be prepended to the default domain you have configured. For example, if NotePager Pro is configured with the default domain of "company.com", when you send a message from "Syslog", it will appear as if the message came from "Syslog@company.com".

    Message Specify the message text. Click Insert message content or counter to include variables.
    Max message length

    Select this option to limit the amount of data sent in the message. If you have used the variable %MsgText in the message body and a large syslog message arrives, it may be too large to send via pager. Use this option to limit the message body length.

    If your pager is capable of receiving only numeric messages, you must specify a number in the message field instead of %MsgText. You will have to determine a series of codes that mean something to you. For example, 1=link up, 2=link down, 9=Router unreachable etc.

  7. (Optional) Test the action.
  8. Click Apply to save the action.
