Sending SMS with Powershell script

Sending SMS from a Powershell script using the SMS Dispatch Manager program from LUTEUS can be set up quickly using the code presented on this page.

The code is available by default in the /bin directory where the SMS Dispatch Manager program has been installed.

Before using it, check that the path $msg_path specified at the beginning of the script points to the path of your installation.

To use the script in an online command window, first select the / bin directory and then type the following command:

. \ Send_SMS.ps1 -recipient_list "LUTEUS" -msg "Test message sent by SMS dispatch Manager" '
