Secure SSH to SMS

This is a polling service. Iflow scans a remote SSH service for XML data to convert to SMS messages.

Polling

The polling service uses the SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) to access your service. It can look for a specific file name or read all available files depending on your set up.

The files it reads are in XML format. Below is a sample message:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<sms>
	<originator>+35387000000</originator>
	<recipient>+35385000000</recipient>
	<date>2013-06-28 11:30:45</date>
	<message><![CDATA[Martin%20Osborne%20will%20
              attend%20wed%20and%20thurs.]]></message>
</sms>
