I've been trying to set up my camera (its a MMS capable trail cam, it uses a SIM card from a mobile operator). I have inserted an unlocked (no password) SIM card from my carrier, with a data plan enabled ( i want to use email too, but first i want to set up MMS option... that why you will see my email address in one of the captures) , its from "tuenti" (a spanish company, im in spain). and the parameters i am asked for in my trail cam are in the images attached (and what i have entered, wrongly or not, i dontk now, thats why im asking)

the parameters "tuenti" says i have to use are the next:

the configuration program i use, creates a .dat file  (actually 3, one for the camera parameteres, another for the mms and another for the email), to my root file on my desktop but i must (and i do) move the file to the root file of my SD card on the camera, when i do it, it does recognize the parameters.

the program can be downloaded freely here, its the last version 1.0.27:

MMS and SMTP email are two different services

If it does GPRS/3G data, then use email, for which the port should be 25

if it does MMS, then you need the address of the MMSC

I would not use the recipient address as the sender address.

I know they are two different services, but as you see in the configuration windows, these parameters come mixed in the same window, i dont know why :(

With the given parameters, how should i fill the blanks to make it work?

Pick either MMS or SMTP

With MMS, you need to get the MMSC address from your mobile provider, with SMTP you should just need to set the port to 25 instead of 26.

Well that explains why port 25 would not work.

The problem could be that your carrier (tuenti) only allows limited outbound connectivity, such as on port 80 and 443.

I would ask your carrier (tuenti) what settings to use for sending email and use those for the SMTP sender part of the config, then you can set the recipient to whatever email address you require.

The tuenti APN settings are here, but I have not been able to find their email settings.

I can't tell you _why_ they might be blocking :-)

If you could put the SIM in a 3G dongle on a computer, testing outbound connectivity might be easier than the camera...

an Android phone with a working shell and telnet client would be nearly as good as a PC for testing :-)
