    You mean SMS texts?<BR><BR>You&#039;ll need an SMS gateway (Google - there are loads). They provide you with a method of sending texts. You normally buy texts in bundles of 1000.<BR><BR>To monitor the services, you&#039;ll either need something running on the live server, or some way of requesting information from the live server on a periodic basis. This could be a VB program that attempts to request a web page, or attempts an FTP login, or attempts a remote SQL Server login.<BR><BR>What else, exactly do you want? Nothing about this is particuarly advanced. Everything you need can be found by simple Google searches.<BR><BR>Craig.
