To send SMS via HTTP by means of the Polygator G20 / G8 GSM gateway, a number of conditions must be met.
The HTTP request to the GSM gateway URL is to be made by POST-method. This request specifies HTTP headers, data for authorization and the data of the message itself, as well as its parameters.
URL for SMS sending: http://IP-address-of-gateway/admin/f101.php
The following is an example of setting up a Postman software client (https://www.getpostman.com/) to send SMS messages.
