I want to push AND INSTALL apk files from PC like Play Store does (when I send install signal from web interface). How to do this?

Note: The PC and Android device may not be in same Wi-Fi network. So, I am asking for solution over Internet.
I am rooted..

Technically this ends up in a clone of Google Play: Set-up a server that provides one or more APKs. On client side install an APK manually that connects to the server and downloads and installs new APKs automatically. Everything is possible but I don't know an ready-to-use solution. –  Robert Jul 18 '12 at 12:32
@Robert If an app can make use of a Dropbox folder to install all APKs in it automatically, there's no need to setup own server for this. –  Sachin Shekhar Jul 18 '12 at 13:33
You are right, that is the reason I wrote "the server" and not "own server". –  Robert Jul 18 '12 at 14:46
@Robert You said, "set-up a server". Are you thinking about setup a server for another one? –  Sachin Shekhar Jul 18 '12 at 17:39
