ANmap is an android tool that you can use on a network to determine available hosts, services, operating system versions, types of packet filters/firewalls and other characteristics. It is an incredibly useful tool for hackers (ethical or unethical).
Today I’m going to give you a step by step guide on how to use android Nmap to identify open ports and other server or host characteristics.
