sms_client command not working


hey

smsclient is a tool for sending short messages (SM - often false
named SMS). SM can be sent to mobile phones. Additional some
paging systems are supported by this tool. smsclient supports
the common protocols UCP, TAP and some other. Out of the box there
is preconfigured support for many local services, but smsclient
can be easily extended to support other systems.


i just installed this tool and have connected gsm modem to the port

i want to send sms using sms_client command ,
i tried the following command
sms_client 123456 ‘Hello 123456’

Dialing SMSC 0640900139...
WARNING: read() Timeout
WARNING: read() Timeout
ERROR: Timeout: searching for +<CR><LF>+ failed after 10 seconds
ERROR: MODEM: Setting Local echo Failed
Total Elapsed Time: 45 Seconds
can anyone tell me what the meaning of the warning
and errors

please rectify me...where iam wrong

Perhaps... Try running

Code:
sms_client 123456 'Hello 123456' -l 5
and then look at "/var/log/smsclient.log". If you can't work out what's going wrong, try posting that file here and see if we can work out what's happening
