How to install a .bar file hosted in a remote server to a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device

I have port an Android application to BlackBerry using Android Runtime. I can install that application successfully using Eclipse. Now I want to put those deploy files (MyApp.bar) in to a remote server and download the .bar file using a browser and install it to another BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device. I was able to download but unable to install the .bar file. What should I do?

You can download the command tools from this link:  http://goo.gl/8CJ8Z  and push the BAR file into your dev alpha device using:

 

blackberry-deploy -installApp -device [your dev alpha IP] -package [path to your BAR file] -password [your device password]

Actually this is the kind of method I have searching for. Google Chrome Extention (PlayBook App Manager) has done the job perfectly.
