You could also look at Kannel (

Using a GSM Modem (or Nokia 6210) with the (not real) telephone number of +447700 900000 you could text

linux ma3a terminal1 reboot
to +447700 900000

Kannel would recognise the linux bit and call a script, with the other three valuse as parametes and the script could do the job.

You can also get Kannel to send smses - i.e. if you have UPS and terminal1 loses power, if your UPS software can call scripts you could get a text message saying "TERMINAL1 Power Cut - shutting down" (obviously the GSM modem would need to be on the UPS!)

This assumes you are on a network with GSM SMSesing! If your mainly inbound a PrePay phone is ideal for that sort of thing here in the UK - just get it to send a monthly text to keep the account alive.

You could then store the most common messages as templates on your mobile. smile.gif

We use this for field staff to log in and out of work, and send SMSes with their job numbers in. smile.gif

The first word allows kannel to call different scripts so
TV BBC_ONE_EAST_MIDS 1830 1900 today record
could call another script which gets your linux tv card to record BBC East Midlands today -assuming it's possible to control them from the command line.
