I have installed Twilio SMS Alerting app on our non production instance. I have configured the authtoken and account sid. I have created Twilio trial account and have generated trial phone number.
I have configured an alert to send both email and SMS. In the SMS part of twilio i have given info in below format
> from number=+1twiliousanumber > to number=+1usamobilenumber > with message=test msg from non-prod box
I scheduled the alert hourly , i recieve the email but not SMS.
When i looked at the splunkd logs i see below error and FATAL statements
INFO sendmodalert - action=twilio STDERR - Sending SMS via Twilio from number=+1twiliousanumber to number=+1usamobilenumber with message=test msg from nfr ERROR sendmodalert - action=twilio STDERR - Unable to find the server at api.twilio.com FATAL sendmodalert - action=twilio STDERR - Failed trying to send SMS Message via Twilio INFO sendmodalert - action=twilio - Alert action script completed in duration=96 ms with exit code=2 WARN sendmodalert - action=twilio - Alert action script returned error code=2
I have looked up related questions but couldn't find much information.
Any idea as to why i am not receiving the sms. Do i need to do anything w.r.t gsm gateway settings.
Do you recommend any other approach/app which is better than twilio.
Hi there, I am not sure about "Twilio". But, if you're looking to send text messages from computer, most cellular companies in USA have a way to accomplish this. Using this format, firstname.lastname@example.org, where "number" is the phone number of the cell phone to which you're sending the message, and "cellphonecarrier" is the domain name that allows recipients to receive e-mail text messages. For instance, to send a text message to cell phone 123-456-7890, enter email@example.com
Here are the domain names of some of the more popular carriers AT&T: @txt.att.net Metro PCS: @metropcs.sms.us Nextel: @messaging.nextel.com Sprint: @messaging.sprintpcs.com T-mobile: @tmomail.net U.S. Cellular: @email.uscc.net Verizon: @vtext.com Virgin Mobile: @vtext.com
Hi everyone, I am getting a similar error-
