Look into README:

This module doesn't need an SQL server to work. For incoming messages it
work in a way that it calls a program giving phone number, date as parameter
and the message text on stdin.


The idea of networking is probably as old as telecommunications itself.
Consider people living in the stone age, where drums may have been used to
transmit messages between individuals. Suppose caveman A wants to invite
caveman B for a game of hurling rocks at each other, but they live too far
apart for B to hear A banging his drums. So what are A's options? He could
1) walk over to B's place,
2) get bigger drum,
3) ask C, who lives halfway between them, to forward the message.
The last is called networking.
