Nagios SMS alerts via mobile phone, no internet connection. (In Australia)

Hi All,

I'm looking at using Nagios for network monitoring of sites that are not connected to the internet for security reasons. I have heard that it is posible to send alerts via a mobile phone connected to a server using serial. Has anybody achieved using an Australian carrier.

Servers are running windows 2008 std 64bit.

I'm looking for a step by step guide if possible.

Regards,

We did this with a linux server and a nokia phone years ago - and I believe the instructions were in the Nagios documentation.

Then phones stopped supporting serial cables... and we started using a data card in the server instead, and it was more stable since we were no longer dependent on a phone battery - since those die after being on the charger for a year or so.

Nowadays I suspect you best option is to go for a "USB data modem" and to dig up some script that sends an SMS.
