  • Once you get the problem, you should take a look at the logs to see what happens. If it doesn't help, increase the debug level.

It works and I can send SMS from terminal.

Have you tested as root?

output=Error opening device, it doesn't exist.

Make sure that nagios (and apache if you want) has write permission on /dev/rfcomm0.

Check this first:

# ls -l /dev/rfcomm0

Assumming you get:

crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 216, 0 2012-08-10 23:15 /dev/rfcomm0

then add the nagios user to the dialout group:

$ sudo usermod -a -G dialout nagios

and try again.


UPDATE Mon Aug 13 17:57:59 ICT 2012

Set the SUID bit on the command to allow nagios execute gammu on behalf of the root:

# chmod 4755 /usr/bin/gammu

and try again:

# su - nagios -s /bin/bash
$ echo "test" | gammu –sendsms TEXT 0123456789

  • # ls -l /dev/rfcomm0 ls: cannot access /dev/rfcomm0: No such file or directory

  • I take it from your above config port = /dev/rfcomm0.

  • I have connected my phone using blue-tooth and assigned port = /dev/rfcomm0. It works and I can send SMS from terminal. I executed root@khalid:/dev# ls -l but rfcomm0 was not found. How SMS is being sent using /dev/rfcomm0 port(actually it does not exist in dev directory)?

  • After plugging your phone, type dmesg to see which port it is using.
    – quanta
    Commented Aug 13, 2012 at 5:53
  • I have copied output of dmesg to this file. I could not find out actual port from the output.
