How can I check open ports on android?
I know that every
ISObased network system uses
TCPport, and Android is of course not an exception.
My question is, can I check the open ports in my device? Can I close them? Is there an app to handle this issue?
The title and the body of the question do not match. Title asks if the concepts exists (of course as you realize yourself in the body) and body asks if it is possible to check what is open and close open ports. Also, the intention to close ports is not clear: ports are open if there is some service or app listening for data which means you should close the service/app.
How do you check open ports on other systems? You can also use nmap against Android or you can use netstat if you've got a shell on the Android system (for example with adb). There is nothing special. And, if you are root you can also install your own firewall rules.
I thought a more friendly app could exist for average smartphone users. Should I delete the question?
