What are the reasons for SMPP error 13 (decimal)?

The generic meaning of this error (0x0d - 13 -  ESME_RBINDFAIL) is Bind Failed.

The error can occur due to bad credentials, mis-matched zone or account not smpp enabled.

For mis-matched zone refer to article: Which host and port do I use to connect to Nexmo SMPP server?

For accounts that are not smpp enabled, contact support.

For error due to Bad credentials, try out the following:

  • Ensure the password (API Secret) follows the below guideline
    • Min 8 and max 10 characters
    • Alphanumeric Characters (a-z , A-Z and 0-9) only
    • Minimum 1 lower case character
    • Minimum 1 upper case character
    • Minimum 1 digit
  • Restrict the API Secret to the number of password characters limited by the server/proxy in which the smpp bind configurations are set up. For eg: Kannel limits passwords to 8 characters, hence must change API secret to 8 characters.
