Hello, I need to send data strings to a web server using GPRS connected to my PC, I am using huawei GTM900 , please guide me regarding enhanced AT commands for this specific module to access web and deploy data to a webserver.

I tried Different APN's also but no success.

Chapter 7 explains all the commands related to TCP/IP or GPRS communication. There is another document with name "TCPIP AT Command User Guide" which can give you better idea on how to use these commands with example. However here is a small snippet that you can try out to see if basic GPRS is working. You can make use of a TCP server to receive data for testing.

  1. AT+CGREG? -> check if module is registered to use GPRS, you should get response as 1 or 5 after this is successful try rest of the commands below.
  2. AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","[APN]" -> set APN (Access point name) for your network, e.g. in case of vodafone its www
  3. AT%ETCPIP -> enable GPRS and TCPIP. If everything is success, you will get a response something like
    %ETCPIP: 1,[ip address],[gateway],[DNS1],[DNS2]
  4. AT%IPOPEN="TCP",IP,PORT -> open a tcp connection, to a server... e.g.
    AT%IPOPEN="TCP","","80" this will open connection to google server and if everything is ok you will get a response "CONNECT" or ERROR if failed
  5. AT%IPSEND="test",4 -> send data to TCP server, response will be %IPSEND:15 --> number can be anything, just make sure its not 0
  6. AT%IPCLOSE -> close current connection

You can try these commands, meanwhile look for the document that I mentioned. It will give you in detail info on how to use TCP/IP on GTM900C

you dont have to send following

all above commands are automatically sent when enabling TCP

you cannot manually set CGREG, coz its set internally by modem depending on your registration status with network.

Error 1 means: not logged into network. please make sure you have inserted card properly and network is registered.
Check signal strength: AT+CSQ
check network registration: at+creg?
and gprs registration: at+cgreg?

after you get success on all these commands, only then try to enable tcp. dont do it before you get CREG and CGREG as 1 or 5. again you cannot set these commands they are set automatically.

AT+CGREG? ..... 1,1
AT+CSQ ...........12,99
AT+CREG ............... 0,1
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","Telenor" ... OK
AT%ETCIP? ..... %ETCPIP:1"",,"",""
... ERROR : 1

now where lies the problem?

>> AT%ETCIP? ..... %ETCPIP:1"",,"",""
this shows your TCP/IP stack is up and running fine.


looks like wrong IP to me.. 1522?? it should not be more than 255
 sanaaaa like this.
