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 in accordance with the GNU Public License.

Q: I want to run Nmap myself from a terminal. Where are the binaries?
A: The binaries are (usually) saved in /data/data/com.wjholden.nmap/bin/.

Q: Is this a GPL violation?
A: I'm not a lawyer, but I don't think so. My sources are freely available and also licensed by the GPL. You are free to modify and redistribute my code provided you share those changes back, IAW the GPL. Free software is not always zero cost.

Q: Where is the source code?
A: Distributing source code along with Android applications is a bit impractical. Download the source code from

Q: Wait, you're not Fyodor!
A: This is NOT an official release from, this is simply a front-end that calls to a precompiled Nmap binary.

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: I don't know why, but this program has never worked with the Motorola Atrix, despite extensive efforts toward compatibility.

Q: Is NSE supported?
A: No, NSE/LUA are not supported for now, but it's definitely on the radar for a future revision. Some command-line arguments will not be available until then.

Recently changed in this version

This long-delayed update brings a handful of small bugfixes and two new major features:
1) The program no longer does any form of license verification.
2) A new feature at your Menu button will allow you to download support files (such as nmap-services) directly from SVN.
The source code is freely available at Thank you for your patience and for using Pamn IP Scanner!

    This is a good attempt of getting nmap on Android but this app does crash a lot. Only a few scans will actually work. Maybe one day he will get it working 100% but os fingerprint scans don't work and I am not sure its worth the money... No wonder Fyodor wanted the developer to change the apps name and icon! J/K. :-)

    Excellent implementation of nmap on my phone! Thanks dev for thinking of us security minded folks in the android realm.

    This app always crashes in the middle of a scan, it's become pretty much useless.

    SGS3, Jelly Bean I am rooted, but UDP scans error out. Changing the screen orientation cancels the scan (so don't tilt your device too much while you're scanning) and there's no way to determine scan progress. The app doesn't give the capability to cancel a running scan. The status window cannot be cleared. This is a very poor product lacking basic functionality. The developer should be asham

    Despite some options not being available because of the lack of LIBLUA support, this does everything I need. There's no funky permissions. The developer was very quick to respond to questions as well.
