To be able to reveice IP mass SMS from Telenor the user have to run a built-in webserver.
The user have to provide the adress of this server to the service provider when they make the contract
so the provider can register it in it's system and it can forward the messages to the user's webserver (Webserver url).
To configure logging, click the Logging tab in the Configuration panel.
The user can choose whether to make the program write log entries about
sent and received messages in human readable format and/or log low level communication.
Choosing the latter option will make the program produce logfiles containing binary codes representing the communication data.
In the Log file settings section of the tab, you can make specifications for the size and the number of available logfiles.
Log rotation saves disk space, as it ensures that older logfiles will be automatically
deleted from the log directory, which is specified in the Log directory text box.
In the Maximum log file size text box you can specify the maximum size of a logfile.
Once this size is reached, a new logfile will be created. Specify the number of
kilobytes for the size of a logfile by entering a positive whole number.

Clicking on the advanced button the user can create a unique name to the connection.
This matters when the user has more connection in the given service provider and
plan to create load balancing. The user have to fill the http authentication field if the provider asks it.
In this case the user have to add the connection data again.
THE HTTPS certificate means a secret connection. In this case the message sent
in the network or the internet can not be readed by other people. To create a secret
connection the user have to upload the X509 certificate file to the sms gateway.
