Hi Dimitris,

as lined out in the other thread, make sure that the PAP HTTP header inlcudes 
both header:


wit the same logic and semantic as for smsbox's sendsms HTTP interface. Then you 
get a DLR requested CIMD2 PDU and bearerbox will also store the DLR data to 
mysql table.

Also a note on the CIMD2 connection:

it's "better" (even while not "hard required") to use a 'smsc-id' for all 
connections, so you have a clean identifier for the route. This will also then 
remove the (null) from the debug lines, ie:
