Project Description


What I need or require:

Program that detect location of Computer or smartphone - so user can always find it if it is lost, misplaced in organization or stolen.

This software can use 3 methods to detect location

1) GPS

2) IP detection (from IP/time we can obtain name of ISP and police can contact ISP and obtain username on that ISP) - this method is patent protected

3) ISP and username detected by monitoring agent on client computer and reported to your server computer so IP detection not needed

This software will consist of 2 parts:

-monitoring agent - C++ program that runs on user computer and report location to web site

-web site that save reported location/time and show it to user later. Also detect IP address of connection

This software will run undetectable on user computer or smartphone and every 24 hours make HTTP connection to web site like below:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view] will detect IP address on these connections and save it to log file(time of connection, IP address, computer id, etc)

When computer is lost or stolen customer can provide IP address and time of connection(or ISP and username) to police that they can contact Internet Service Provider and find out name and address of new user who was using this IP at that time.

Also I will need web site for distribution of this software.

Also is it possible to use some existing free cloud service(storage) to store this info?

Thank you
