Example use of SMS Command for Mikrotik

When you have working playSMS with Kannel, and Mikrotik configured to do something (not related to SMS), you can integrate them to serve something to your users. In the article below the author mentioned that the goals are:

  1. To renew expired users via sending Username and SCRATCH CODE to playSMS (Ubuntu Server)
  2. To renew expired users via sending SCRATCH CODE & verify the code with the user profile [later]

Users will be asked to send SMS to playSMS, and playSMS will handle it on its SMS Command to run a script that verify the SMS and commands Mikrotik to do something.
