  8. Hi Gagan,

    Thanks for the simple SMS tutorial.

    I have implemented this in my DEV client and still not able to send SMS.

    I am getting the below error.


    No delivery to SMS:XXXXXXXXXX due to problem with communication connection
    Message no. XS839


    The message could not be delivered to recipient SMS:XXXXXXXXXX due to a communication error.

    System Response

    Processing was completed as normal.

    Communication service with errors: HTTP or HTTPS
    Parameter or error code used:


    Additional information on the node used (in the system language of the node, if available):


    Check the parameters listed for the service. In particular, note the communication parameters. With HTTP/HTTPS, the problem is probably due to an incorrect URL or incorrect HTTP proxy settings.

    The error may, however, be temporary. If a SAPconnect retry has been defined for this node, the error may be removed automatically.

    Procedure for System Administration


    Can you please help me out with this?

  9. Hi, Can you please suggest a method to receive SMS from outside GSM based mobile handsets & using that we can trigger updates in SAP….for e.g. when a truck reaches a specific location driver messages / texts about the vehicle location and based on that we trigger few stock movement details in SAP or update event in SAP.

    If you are aware about 3rd party products which provides vehicle tracking using sms which also integrates with SAP ECC or SAP EM or SAP SCM SCEM etc…please do suggest.
