About SendSNPP
SendSNPP is a perl program for sending messages through a RFC1861 compliant SNPP server. SNPP stands for Simple Network Paging Protocol. It is used by a wide range of paging providers for sending pages. A list of some of the providers that support the SNPP service is given below. I have used this script in production now for some time and it has proven to be a great script for sending pages. SendSNPP requires no special modules, and has been tested on Linux and Windows systems. It has a very straight forward interface making it very easy to use.
SendSNPP is licensed under the GPL.

Feature List:

  • Easy addition of new service providers by simply editing a hash
  • Supports logging to a file
  • Script returns error status to the system when an error occurs
  • Automatic message truncation when message exceeds providers limit
  • Verbose and descriptive error messages if something goes wrong
  • Multiple debugging levels


[Supported Platforms: Linux, BSD, OS X, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, & Windows XP]

How do I install it?
Simply download, extract, and run "SendSNPP.pl" from a console - it will give a usage summary. It is written in Perl, so no compilation needed. On a unix system if your perl binary is not installed at /usr/bin/perl you may need to edit the first line of the script.
