We are in late development stages of client PC-restore-on-reboot software. The next step in this development is to now purchase development of remote control functionality, allowing a point of central administration of the client installations on a LAN (TCP/IP). The coder’s job will include 1) a client module with GUI that will locally control our restoring software 2) a central administration GUI and database. The deliverables should be step-by-step, so we quickly (10-12 days) get a version with basic functionality. This project is ideal for a long term coder-buyer relationship so an interested and able coder can become a kind of product manager. The administration software is actually very standard in functionality. It might help to look at specs and screenshots from these older products: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view]
:::GUI and remote control module for clients::: -Password protection -Option to install with local GUI files or hidden console mode or command line interface -Prepared for integrated Windows help file system -Follow Windows GUI design guides (buttons, menus..) -All local settings affected by GUI/command line operations should be stored hidden and encrypted -Functionality (see for a good example the EDTools Steadfast local GUI. Download on [url removed, login to view]): Start, Stop, Restore, Reboot, Change password, Exception areas, Exception executables. -Integrated license administration for local updates, unlock, upgrade (see e.g. TurboPower solutions on Sourceforge): We want basically to always distribute the full software with remote control capacity. BUT, depending on which license key is entered, only certain functions are available. These are standard solutions. -Session log files stored for optional time (typical thing to have). :::GUI, database and supporting modules for central administration and installation::: -Command line interface for scripted enterprise installation of clients -Command line interface for scripted enterprise control of clients -Silent enterprise installation -All information stored and transferred encrypted (use a free standard algo) -Integrated Windows help system -Possible to import PC clients from AD, NT User directory and NetWare. -Possible to rename and customize groups and lists in the administration GUI -Drag & drop -Use TreeView with subgroups for clients in the administration GUI -Integrated license administration of clients -Password protection of the administration software GUI -Possible to poll for clients and automatically have them listed in the admin interface -Possible to verify number of clients allowed on the network based on licenses -Complete log information. -Possible to export session, event, life-time and network snapshot log in standard formats. -All functionality of a local client should be accessible through central administration (start/stop/exception/password changing) -Select 1, some or all PCs in entire LAN, entire group, etc for administration tasks. -Reboot and shutdown with timed warnings before event -Broadcasting customized info on local clients -Scheduled events including recurring scheduled events If you look at the links we provide, you see these are very straight forward solutions and the GUIs are very, very standard for remote control tasks. Basically we want to keep it clean, stylish and simple. :::And::: 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
