PDF user is an application that allows you to send
PDF files in an easy way. You need to do the follows to use
this application effectively: you need to select a PDF file on your computer.
If the PDF file has been selected, specify the path to it in Ozeki NG SMS
Gateway. Then you need to configure an SMTP server in the SMS gateway.
This solution allows users to send their e-mail address in an SMS message to a
phone number provided by you. If the SMS message containing the e-mail address
arrives, Ozeki NG SMS Gateway will automatically send the selected PDF file to
the user. Therefore, a quick and stable communication process will be performed.
Configure the PDF user
First select a PDF file to be sent on your computer. In our
example it is "ozeki.pdf" on the desktop (Figure 1).
