How to setup PDF user

On this page you will learn how you can configure Ozeki NG SMS Gateway to setup a PDF user. After you have downloaded and installed Ozeki NG SMS Gateway you can start to configure a PDF user in it with the help of Graphical User Interface. Please follow the steps below and find screenshots that are demonstrating setup instructions.

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).
