Re: Nmap On Android

OK, I sent the $2.99 to the market, since I like to encourage independent developers when I can.
I removed "Droidmap"  which has nmap 4.01 in it,  and installed yours.

It started up, asked for root which I allowed, then when I started a scan it died with
"java.io.FileNotFoundExceotion:
/data/data/com.wjholden.nmap/tmp/nmap.nmap (No such file or directory)

I downloaded the 0.4.7 source, and I have Eclipse set up on my Mac, but haven't gone any further.

Suggestions?

ALCON,

I have been working on an Nmap for Android app for the past year.  All
source code, documentation, etc is available at
http://nmap.wjholden.com/.

I chose not to use the NDK, instead I ship the binaries Vlatko
Kosturjak (http://seclists.org/nmap-dev/2010/q3/53) cross-compiled and
install them into /data/data/com.wjholden.nmap/bin/.  Those binaries
are then executed through either 'su' or 'sh' via Runtime.exec().

Will be happy to answer any/all questions and provide lessons learned.
There are a lot of caveats on the Android platform that I'll try to
speak on.

Thanks a lot Guys.
I want to understand how nmap works internally i.e. from its code. But the
version we are using now is soo big I don't even understand where to start
from.
Is it valid if I check out the 1st version which fyodor released long back
which had just 2000 lines. Just to get comfortable with it. And then maybe
look over the later versions..?

Or how do I check out the current version and try understanding it.

I am interested in developing the app for android. Any suggestions will be
really helpful.
Thanks. :)
