The older palms have a modem that you can hook to the bottom
to connect to the internet and establish a ppp connection.

The newer palm vii is wireless and uses palm.net as its network
It uses webcliping to do everything and does not have a direct connection
to the internet. Its kinda of the principle of mail2web where you can get
your
email but from a web interface. Everything is done by special programs
called
web clipping programs which can be downloaded at palm.net or palm.com
I think the only port it lets you use is port 80 but i really dont know.
even 3rd
party mail clients use webclipping through port 80 so this is my guess.
kinda
of pointless. Thats why I returned mine. Its perfect for palm though.. the
thing
only gets 9600 bps and your never always connected. Just connected to
download
data from a webclipping app. which is usually no more than 4-10k. and at
$44.95
a month. It just wasnt worth it. I thought I could telnet into my machine
but you cant
do that and it wont run java or anything so java telnet clients on webpages
wont work.
Heck i even had to download a 3rd party webbrowser just so i could go to
different
webpages that did not have webclipping applications for them.

ohh well

Has anybody ported nmap to PalmOS? Is it practical?

Ok, I'm not a big palm buff, so...

Is it possible to obtain a straight network connection with a Palm, not
needing cradle and PC, or modem, in the process?

At this point, I didn't know Palms where ethernet-capable.  I know other
devices (WinCE, etc) take PCMCIA cards, which make them network-capable,
but those aren't Palms...
