    Figure 1 - Ozeki NG SMS Gateway - solution for subscription for RSS feeds

    After someone subscribed to the subscription list s/he will automatically receive SMS notifications on every update or new RSS feeds (Figure 2). This simple but effective solution enables subscribers to be up-to-date and well-informed.

    How to unsubscribe from RSS feeds

    If SMS notifications are not required by users any more they can easily unsubscribe from the subscription lists of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway by sending an SMS that contains the keyword for unsubscribe. This keyword can be provided during the configuration, as well. On Figure 2 you can examine this process.

    Figure 3 - Ozeki NG SMS Gateway - solution for unsubscribe from RSS feeds

    Ozeki NG SMS Gateway sends SMS messages with the help of a GSM modem that is attached to the computer with a data cable or it connects directly to the SMS center of the mobile service provider over the Internet.

    Please note that it is recommended to start to build your SMS system with GSM modem connection as it is more secure and reliable. If you wish to increase capacity you can attach more than one GSM modem to your computer or if it is required you can still switch to IP SMS connection.

    How to create a subscription list

    After you have installed an RSS user in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway (see on the previous page), provide a password for this user in "Interactive login" part at "Advanced" tab, then click on "OK" (Figure 4).

    Figure 4 - Password for the user

    Now log out Ozeki NG SMS Gateway and login as the created "RSS to SMS" user (Figure 5).

    Figure 5 - Login as RSS user

    Click on "Contacts" after login (Figure 6).

    Figure 6 - RSS user's contacts

    Select "New group" menu item and provide a name for the group (Figure 7).

    Figure 7 - Define a name for the contact group

    Then click on "Subscribe/Unsubscribe" tab. Now provide keywords at "Subscribe keyword" and "Unsubscribe keyword" fields. If the incoming message contains the keyword provided at "Subscribe" field, the sender will be added to the subscription list and will receive a response message. This response message contains the text that you can specify at the "Greeting message" part.
    On the other hand, if the incoming message holds the keyword of "unsubscribe" field then the user will be removed from the list and will get the response message that can be specified at "Unsubscribe message" field (Figure 8).

    Figure 8 - Subscribing and unsubscribing keywords

    For demonstration, I add two users, John and Mike, to the group (Figure 9).

    Figure 9 - Create an example user for the contact group

    I simulate an incoming message that contains the specified "Subscribe keyword" therefore the user become a member of the created group (Figure 10).

    Figure 10 - Subscribed user

    Now I log into Ozeki NG SMS Gateway as admin user to let you see the incoming message (Figure 11).

    Figure 11 - Received message

    Now the RSS user can be configured. Provide the url of the RSS feed then provide a group as a recipient in the following way (Figure 12):
    grp://group name

    Figure 12 - RSS user properties

    If the selected RSS feeds are updated then Ozeki NG SMS Gateway will send out SMS messages to the members of the created group (Figure 13).
