Hi. I'm trying to implement Net::SMPP for sending a text message on a shared server with perl.

The configure requires a 'port'.

Has anyone done this? What port are you using?

Is there a work around.

Thank you for contacting us about the port setting for SMPP. According to the SMPP documentation it typically uses TCP port 2775. Typically opening ports would require elevated access to the environment such as root, which is only possible on VPS or Dedicated hosting plans.

For shared plans, you can often use a CMS to handle text messaging transactions. For example, there is a WP SMS Functions plugin for WordPress that can then be used by developers.

Thank you,
