Kannel Installation Guide

There are binary packages available for debian and fedora at Kannel's site if you do not wish to compile it from source code.

Notes: I'm using Nokia 5100 or iTegno WM1080A ( wacom ) and USB cable with a charger.

Download Kannels source code and unpack it into some directory ( ex /usr/local/src ) and compile it.

# cd /usr/local/src
# tar -xzvf ~/gateway-1.4.1.tar.gz
# cd gateway-1.4.1/
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/kannel --enable-start-stop-daemon
Configure...
# make >& make.log &
# tail -f make.log
<all kinds of code is running on your screen at this point...>

# make install >& install.log &
# tail -f install.log

Create a startup script ( this example is for Fedora Core ) in your /etc/init.d/ directory:

#!/bin/sh
#
# gateway This shell script takes care of starting and stopping
# the Kannel WAP gateway (bearer/wapbox)
#
# chkconfig: 2345 97 03
# description: Start and stop the Kannel WAP gateway used to fetch \
# some WML content from a Web server & compile it \
# into WMLC mobile phone bytecode.
# probe: true

# Use start-stop-daemon
ver=1.40
BBOX=/usr/local/sbin/bearerbox
SBOX=/usr/local/sbin/smsbox

STOP="/usr/sbin/start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --oknodo --exec"
CONF=/etc/smskannel.conf
[ $# -eq 2 ] && ver=$2

# Check that networking is up.
[ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] && exit 0

[ -x $BBOX ] || exit 0

[ -x $SBOX ] || exit 0

[ -f $CONF ] || exit 0

exit $RETVAL

Plug your mobilephone into your computers USB port and start kannel. Check your /var/log/kannel/kannel.log. If you can find several AT command lines and line where it says AT SMSC successfully opened. Then all is fine.
