** The above parameters like apikey is an example and it might vary based on your provider. Please check for the API document for the mandatory and optional parameters and use it accordingly.
Each header should be in a new line as shown below
Content-Type : application/json
Each provider will have a set of success and failure responses.
The responses for success or failure message will be available in the API document of the gateway provider.
Success Response: Check the API document of the SMS gateway provider from their sample RESPONSE
A sample success response from a API document:
<xml> <message_id>[ID of message in outbox]</message_id> <status>ok</status> </xml>
You can configure the Success response under SMS server settings as <status>ok</status>.
Failure Response: Check the API document of the SMS gateway provider from their sample RESPONSE
A sample failure response from the API document.
Response (when wrong logindata):

The Send Test SMS option allows you to verify if the specified SMS configurations trigger neccessary SMS notifications. While using Send Test SMS replace the '$recipient' and '$message' in the HTTP parameters with the respective mobile number and the desired message to check whether you receive the SMS.

Firewall Analyzer supports SMS notification via SMPP. SMPP stands for Short Message Peer to Peer Protocol.
Short Message Peer-to-Peer (SMPP) in the telecommunications industry is an open, industry standard protocol designed to provide a flexible data communication interface for the transfer of short message data between External Short Messaging Entities (ESMEs), Routing Entities (REs) and Message Centres. Using the SMPP protocol, an SMS application system called the ‘External Short Message Entity’ (ESME) may initiate an application layer connection with an SMSC over a TCP/IP connection and may then send short messages and receive short messages to and from the SMSC respectively. It allows fast delivery of SMS messages.
