You can of course use your SMS Gateway to send alarms from WhatsUp Gold via SMS.

For this purpose you first need the application httpRequest.exe. Download it and save it in your WhatsUp Gold server in the C:\SendSMS\ directory.
The application requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.

In the next step actions must now be configured for sending text messages.

Example: Action for SMS notifications

Navigate in the WhatsUp Gold web interface: Settings - Actions & Alerts - Actions and Policies

Add a new program action.

Add a new program action by clicking on the "+" symbol under Action Library.

 Configure the dialog as follows:


SMS to contact/number 

DescriptionSend a text message to contact/number
Program file nameC:\SendSMS\httpRequest.exe
