You are here: Hello world / Software / sms-queue   SMS sending queue handler.



sms-queue consists of server and client applications to build up a mechanism to send many SMS-messages in a networked environment. sms-queue itself does not send a SMS-message but passes it to a backend application.

As of version 0.6 the communication betweeen the server and the client is based on a simple ASCII protocol over TCP/IP. This makes it simple to develop your own client if sms2queue (the standard sms-queue client) does not fit into your system.

For an incomplete list of possibly suitable backends and similar projects, see the sms link page.


As sms-queue is written in Perl, it should run on any platform, Perl has been ported to.

Though the following additional perl modules are necessary:


Please note: The provided debian- and rpm-packages are unofficial and may not work with your distribution. So install them at your own risk! (But at least the debian package works very well for me ;-)

The tar-archives without the "simple" suffix provide a small installation script. See also the generic installation instructions.
