Create very basic Android SERVICE for proof of concept

If you bid over $400.00, I will not even look at your bid. This is not a complicated project and will lead to much more work if you can prove yourself.

The most important part of this task is that you know, understand and have used the network tool called mtr. UNRELATED TO TRANSPORTATION!!! This is ping and traceroute combined. You need to come up with the equivalent of this tool which would be used by a SERVICE on Android. The solution must be able to be used by a service on a NON ROOTED phone.

The rest is a client/server based solution.

Android is the client which communicates with a php app using curl over an intranet/internet network.

The service does NOT require any user interaction. The user requires only an installer and an uninstaller. The service would run in background at all times when device is on/running.

We have an in-house application where workstations are sending basic data back to a target server to track locations of certain inventory and other metrics. The app is Linux script using curl to send data to a php/mysql server.

There is interest in seeing if this could be converted to an Android service and perhaps some desktops later on. The reason being that more and more employees are now using mobiles instead of their PCs.

This project and it's resulting code will be the base of a future project. A solution which shows that the service can authenticate to a remote server then send basic information to a php app.

The way to prove this will be by sending a ping, a traceroute and an mtr result using curl. We will test and confirm that when we start the service, we will have it do a quick test using each tool, then send it's results to php. Once all three are confirmed to be sending data to php, that should conclude the test then the main project can begin"

You do not need to build anything else, no back end, etc, it all exists. I will provide you with the function names you need to talk with and the variables needed in order to have php read/insert into mysql.

Much of this will be done while we are in Google Gmail chat. I use no other service.

Once that is established and shown as a proof of concept, the real project can begin. This project will help to find someone who can prove they can do this first, then we can talk about the actual project afterward.

High bidders, you keep wasting my time and my project post. This is NOT a complicated project to the right person!!!

Stop wasting my time and yours by auto bidding and having no idea what I am looking for. Just because you made an Android app doesn't mean you have a clue of what I want and so far, in listing this project over and over again, that has been the case. What a waste of time!
