Am new to the forum and to FLSMS, I was able to set it up on my Ubuntu 10.10, and I was testing it using Huawei E1752 GSM/GPRS Modem but it seems not to work.
It gives me an error that a device seems to have been detected but is not compatible with
the phones listed in FLSMS list of usable phones.
I have read a few people on this thread who have had success using the Huawei E1752,
What error are you seeing with your phone detection?
Thanx for the response, When I try to search for my modem it goes on and on and then tells me,
no phones detected.
Then at one point I got another response saying it detected a device but it is not compatible with the FLSMS, that I should check the list for allowed phones.
I know some people here have said they tested with the Huawei e1752 and it has worked for them.
What can you see in the Phones tab? Are there any ports listed under "non-working devices"? If so, what does it say in the table?
If there are no ports listed here, it may mean that you need to install the drivers for your modem - these may have come on a CD with the modem, or they may be available on the modem's internal memory stick.
In the 'Non-working devices, it shows COM4. COM5. COM6. and COM7 and when I try to auto -detect devices, it returns, 'no phone detected' on all four of them.
Am using Huawei GSM Modem, e1752.
Getting FrontlineSMS to work on Ubuntu can be tricky. You have a couple of options at this stage, I'd say. Either you can click on the "Forum" tab above and search for "Ubuntu" and read through other posts where people have got it running (you can also send them a message directly if you want to ask for their help), or if you have a Windows machine available using FrontlineSMS on that should be quicker and easier for you.
Have a go at one (or both) of those and let us know how you get on.
