N-able N-central SMS notifications – integration manual
Here we describe how to setup N-able N-central with SMSEagle for SMS notifications.
SMSEagle is an offline hardware SMS gateway. Therefore no external connection to 3rd party system is required. All notifications are generated on-premise and sent directly to a cellular network. This solution can be used in secure installations without Internet access.
N-able N-central integration uses Email To SMS plugin (see details: Email To SMS plugin).
- N-able N-central has its own mail server. If the network where N-able N-central is installed requires a mail relay server, you can configure it at the System level (via Administration > Mail and Network Settings > SMTP Authentication) .
In order to configure SMS notifications, please go to Edit user -> User Details -> Notification Method
and in the email address field put:
123456789 is your phone number
SMSEagle_IP_Address is actual IP address of your SMSEagle device
SMSEagle as SMTP Server (optional)
For sending e-mail messages you can use SMTP server installed on the SMSEagle device. Then the configuration of SMTP server is as follows:
- SMTP host: IP address of your device
- SMTP port: 25
- Authentication: SMSEagle SMTP server doesn’t require authentication
- Encryption: none
Notice: SMTP server on the SMSEagle device will accept messages addressed for it only. The other messages will be rejected.
