- Android 2.1 and up
GPL. Source available at http://nmap.wjholden.com/src/. This is *not* an official release from www.nmap.org.
Send me your feature requests! I'm always open to good ideas and challenges!
Q: I want to run Nmap myself from a terminal.
A: The binaries are (usually) saved in /data/data/com.wjholden.nmap/bin/. Use the -oA argument with Nmap (the reason is somewhat complicated...e-mail me for more details).
Q: Isn't this a GPL violation?
A: No, the source is available.
Q: Where is the source code?
Q: Wait, you're not Fyodor!
A: That's right, this is NOT an official release from http://nmap.org, this is a personal project I've worked on for months by myself.
Q: Do I need root?
A: No! You can use this program with or without root, although there are a few advantages to having root. I've seen a few problems with -O for Operating System fingerprinting (this would happen on desktop Linux as well). Non-root users will usually need to use the --system-dns argument.
