Issues with W Vista and Mac?

Hi Ken,

I have been struggling with FSMS for long time now.I use a macbook with W vista also installed on it.

I purchased a Motorola L6i but as I could not get the cord here I could not use it.
Leter I purchased a sonyerricson W200 but as it does have drivers for Vista or Mac I could not use it too.

I tried some locally available GSM modems too but could not connect to the FSMS.

Finally I also purchased wavecom modem which was expensve and difficult to get.

Now I am still struck as FSMS could not connect to the modem both on Mac and vista sides.

Can you please let me know how to configure with Mac or Vista. I am not sure if auto -detect function can work.

I was successfull when I tried on freinds XP but all the systems in my reach are either Mac's or Vista.

Looking for your support. I send the log also recently.
I was very excited that some one is heping the community with such free FSMS and support but nowit is equally frustating as I have already spent significant time but not successfull.

Hi Ken,

Greeting from Cambodia! Just want to check with you, is there any update on the Khmer language integration into the new release of FrontlineSMS? Please keep me posted as I will be very proud to see it's out.

Anyway, there will be an upcoming ICT event in Phnom Penh this early October. It's called BarCamp Phnom Penh 2, which will be take place on 3-4 Oct 2009 here. Here's the link -
I'm thinking it would be great to have a short presentation about FrontlineSMS and other of your projects which might be beneficial here to Cambodians, both NGOs and ordinary people. Please share me your thought.

Last item is that I just had a quick talk with Rob about setting up another 1 more new FrontlineSMS server in Phnom Penh. I'm very excited about it.

Best regards and nice weekend,

Hey Ken,

I'm running 1.5.5 on both Windows and Mac and it looks like there was an upgrade to 1.5.8. I'm also looking at running it one Linux. Could I get the latest downloads?

I'm having a lot of fun exploring all the possibilities with FrontlineSMS. Thanks a bunch for software like this.

HI Ken, I am filling out a Survey on mobile applications, and I decided to use Frontline SMS as a good example. Am I right to say the current version is 2.0? Your speedy reply is appreciated.

Hi Ken. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to access the SMS platform. I am excited in starting my own experiment on this. I would like to try possible conversion of messages into Khmer for convenience of rural area users. I will get in touch with Dr. Fitzgerald who has done some projects in this line in the same country.

In my home country the Philippines, I am doing some coordination with our weather agency (PAGASA) . Initial work has been done spearheaded by Dr. Alan Pineda who now heads the Flood Forecasting Division.

I will keep in touch.

Hi Ken, yes I was at a conference a few weeks back and Marcello Inarra told me to try out this program. I think there will be even more coming on in the next few months. I will be at the mobileactive08 conference in Johannesburg in a few weeks, any chance you will be there as well?
I am on skype if you want to chat user name: livingmike

You will excuse my English if I make faults or misunderstandings, I scarcely use that language. Well, I am a French journalist working for the international radio (Radio France Internationale) in Paris and I am very much interested in making articles with people, what I call participative journalism ( or co-journalism). I started that work with a set of five articles upon the internet connexion's prices (in french) and I would like to start a new survey on the ways people use their mobile phone. I started a discussion on a site called l'Atelier des Médias (which could be translated "the media lab" and I am looking for more people to participate in the discussion, the reason why I joined your community. I would also like very much to talk to you ( and make an interview) on your projects with the mobile. So if you let me know when I could call you, I would be glad to be in touch with you,
Best regards,
Anne-Laure Marie
