I developed network tool application (ping + sending some custom TCP/UDP packets), which I use only for my internal test purposes in our company and which will never reach the market. This application will be enhanced/changed many times as new requirement for fuctinality will arise. Until now I wrote code only for pre-Symbian9 devices and I had no problems with it.
I tried to read all available materials I found about platform security and signed process, but I still don't clearly understand what I should do. Can you correct me?
As I will need access to phone manufacturer approved capabilities "Network control" and I develop for both UIQ3 and S60FP3 I will need approval from both manufacturers (Sony Ericsson and Nokia) to get developer certificate and I will be forced to renew it every 6 months. Additionaly I'll need ACS Publisher ID from Verising, which is necessary for signing the application before requesting developer certificate? Everything could be done via www.symbiansigned.com page?
There's also way how to certificate freeware applications, could this apply on my case?
Thanks a lot
