How to use GSM terminal connected to PC/PLC and develop software that behaves as WAP server

Let's assume that we have a PC that has a Siemens/Wavecom GSM terminal connected to its serial port. Is there any way to develop a software that will be a WAP server? The idea is to call (from your handy) GSM terminal and have access to PC via WAP.

Any hints/links to WEB sites with documentation?

getting something which talks to a GSM modem on the end of a serial line sending out WAP means installing a WAP gateway. WapLite is one such gateway. It takes the WML stuff and converts it into a format suitable to send to the phone. In fact it can do this for any type of modem on the line.

Normally one sends the WAP XML (=WML) back over the internet to the caller (via a telco) via TCP/IP as an HTTP response. Indeed all actions on the phone (like selecting form a list or pressing a button) get send via the gateway to the WAP server as http requests.

Making a WAP site is easy as making a web site. Only wml is far more restrictive than html. Any tool like php or asp will do (even cgi!).

So: for WML see the www.wapforum.com, gateways at WapLite.com and don't forget the Nokia WAP tool kit - it is essential for making WAP pages - unless you really want to waste time doing everything on your phone.

Hope that's a start!
