Title: Exporting pager messages PDW from o google sheat
Post by: michael12ab12 on 16 Nov 2019, 08:27:40
Hi I was wondering if anyone would be able to help with is project.

What i am trying to do is export the pager messages from PDW to google sheets in real time, i have pdw set up and working correctly.
I am trying to this because i am a volunteer firefighter and i would like to set it up when i receive a pager message it can automatically display it on my computer screen. the reason why i want to export it to google sheets is so i can share it with one of my friends who is also a volunteer without him having to have another computer running everything.

Anyone who can help with or know how to do this would be very happy.
Thanks Michael

Hey. have you tried pushover? I use this and it works. You only have to make a Api Token. Then you can send it to as many you like
https://pushover.net/

Hey Urik

I love the sound of this, how are you sending the messages to Pushover?

Hi. I send from pdw through pushover. Have a good program but it in Danish ;-) , you can work around it by sending pdw massage to the api address you make in pushover. Your friends has to make a pushover account to get the message you send. The long code that they get you just put in pdw under mail. Like this uHrErqbBG3gfmh--------@api.pushover.net

Hi Ulrik,

Sorry for the newbie question but how do you push the messages to pushover. I am pretty new at command line stuff, so any help would be greatly appreciated

remember that there must be a comma between each user

Many SMTP servers only support secure SSL connections. Unfortunately, SSL is not supported by PDW. This results in an error message 'Must issue a STARTTLS command first' :-(

Try google the problem  (StartTTLS command first pdw)

one got it to work with a yahoo account smtp host:smtp.mail.yahoo.com port: 25

Not quite true! PDW 3.2b01 supports SSL.
