I have this message "Error: EACCES: permission denied, open '/var/spool/sms/outgoing/node-.....'" when i test send sms (node smstools on raspberry)
How can I allow all nodes to this file?
Hi @bpi2008, welcome to the forum.
The readme for node-red-contrib-smstools does say
Make sure your
node-redinstance has read permissions in all of
/var/spool/sms/directories and write permissions in
ls -ld /var/spool/sms/outgoing show you?
Depending on the above, you may be able to fix it by adding the Node-red user (normally your default login on the Raspberry Pi) to a user group, or else
sudo chmod +w /var/spool/sms/outgoing
I see that node was last updated 8 years ago and it does not have a link from flows.nodered.org to a github page. There have been a lot of changes in Node-red since then and it might not work any more.
ls -ld /var/spool/sms/outgoing:
=> drwxrwsr-t 2 smsd smsd 4096 6 déc. 13:11
I'm not a Linux specialist, that probably explains it
I'm not certain this will work but try
sudo usermod -a -G smsd username where username is the username that Node-red runs as.
You probably have to reboot before it takes effect.
username is the user login to node red ?
Sorry Jbbudd now it's ok with the sudo usermod ...... many thanks for all have a nice day, Bernard from France
I'm glad you got it working.
Sending SMS notifications is a common wish for Node-red.
Can you tell us what hardware you have -
- What are you running Node-red on?
- What device has the mobile phone SIM card?
