    Testing TCP/IP Socket and HTTP Connection Online

    I have developed an application in which I have used SIM808 module for cellular communication (GPRS). I am facing a problem that I am unable to test the TCP/IP Socket and HTTP Connection as the server application is not yet complete. As far I understand I would require some testing mechanism that would be hosted on Internet (Online). Kindly advice how should I test the TCP/IP Socket and HTTP Connection. Are their and tools available like Hercules (TCP) or Postman (HTTP) that are hosted on Internet?

    A SIM808 is just a chip module, what else is wrapped around it?
    SIM808 | SIMCom | smart machines, smart decision | simcom.ee

    Why do you need an online solution?

    I guessed you have also some kind of CPU and memory along with your SIM808, along with a network connection (either wired or wireless).
    Not to mention an OS running on the board.

    You just plug it into your local LAN, and open a TCP connection to it from your development machine.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Sorry, for the late reply.
    I am looking for mechanism to test my TCP/IP socket and HTTP request that I issue through the SIM808 module communicating via GPRS.
    I am looking for something like Hercules TCP Sever or Postman HTTP monitor.
