A Droid X app that refreshes a RDP connection?

    A few years ago we developed a Windows XP application on a desktop computer within our workgroup network at the business. The purpose of the app is for use as an alarm notification system. The app sees 27 distinct "closed or open" conditions depending on the status of alarm contacts. It uses the computer speaker to play a WAV file so there is a loud sound if the alarm system is set. It has the advantage of making visible the exact contact open. A that point a specific camera area can be made full screen to view (via the same RDP screen) the burglar in action or other serious problem. This is an extremely practical mission critical application for us if we can refresh the RDP connection automatically if it is lost or keep it fresh so it is never lost.

    The new Droid X we have with Xtralogic Remote Desktop paid version is a perfect fit for notifying us instantly in the middle of the night of an alarm condition via the wav sound. It works perfectly except for about every hour & a half during the night time alarm set time period --- the connection itself needs to be refreshed.

    The application solution amounts to automating once every hour touching the back button on the Droid X & touching on the only static IP address listed on the Xtralogic RDP screen. Is there an Android app that could accomplish this simple task. How difficult would it be for that type of app to be developed that would run in the backround during a specific otherwise dormant 8 hour night time period for the Droid X phone?
