What's new in this version (0.7.3):
- older Android versions do not support a feature to test if a file is executable or not. This was used to see if the "su" command could be issued, if present.
- Honeycomb adds a new feature that prevents the main thread from accessing networking resources. This meant I had to move some of the logic in the Subnet activity to a child thread.
Thank you for using this program!
Pamn IP Scanner (or PIPS) was formerly titled "Nmap for Android." Fyodor, the inventor of Nmap, asked me to change the name and icon to reduce user confusion.
This app is simply a wrapper around a cross-compiled Nmap binary built for your Android phone.
Source available at http://nmap.wjholden.com/src/ in accordance with the GNU Public License.
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: Is this a GPL violation?
A: No, the source code is available.
Q: Where is the source code?
Q: Wait, you're not Fyodor!
A: 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.
Q: What's up with Atrix?
A: Everything works perfectly on my Photon, but after numerous complaints and efforts I have configured my Market account such that you cannot purchase this app from an Atrix anymore. Atrix is not supported.

Didnt work on my Galaxy Tab, waited ages at prompt. No root. GUI needs improvement too, but kudos for attempt.
Seems to work better with root. Merry Christmas!
as the first I know to compile nmap for android William took my work to a new level !! Works great! -rmccurdy.com
Installed ok, but could not get it working. I attemped to port scan a node on my home network. No result returned.
Crashes most of the time on my Droid.
works great on g1 with cm 6.0.0 RC3 :)
This has never functioned on my Droid Incredible, despite several updates and several communication exchanges with the developer.
Won't work on Eris 2.1
The update went great no problems
Like the app, but am unable to get accurate results over 3G. Rooted HTC Incredible on VZW.
