This will bring up an interface consisting of two panels. The panel on the left side contains a list of users that have been installed, while the panel on the right side contains a list of users that can be installed. On the right panel find the SMPP user and click on Install button. It allows you to connect SMPP clients to Ozeki NG - SMS Gateway to send and receive SMS messages.

Your password should be a combination of letters and digits (at least one or two of the latter). From now on, the username and password you have provided can be used to log in to the program (Figure 3).
