Kaseya Network Monitor SMS notifications – integration manual
Here we describe how to setup Kaseya Network Monitor with SMSEagle for SMS notifications.
SMSEagle is an offline hardware SMS gateway. Therefore no external connection to 3rd party system is required. All notifications are generated on-premise and sent directly to a cellular network. This solution can be used in secure installations without Internet access.
Kaseya Network Monitor integration uses Email To SMS plugin (see details: Email To SMS plugin).

The SMTP server is used to send email notifications to users. Enter the address to the SMTP server you want to use. Note that the SMTP server must be able to accept all the email addresses that you are planning to use. This is the primary SMTP server that will normally be used (you can use SMSEagle as SMTP server).

The secondary SMTP server is used when KNM cannot connect the primary SMTP server.
SMTP server username and password
If your secondary SMTP server requires authentication, enter the username and password in these fields.
Most SMTP servers are configured to only accept incoming emails with a valid return address. Since KNM is unable to receive emails you must specify a return address where emails that could not be delivered will be sent.

- SMTP host: IP address of your device

- Encryption: none
SMTP server on the SMSEagle device will accept messages addressed for it only. The other messages will be rejected.
