Car whisperer

I am using the software "carwhisperer" from the book "Hacking Exposed Wireless".
I have installed the software and I have valid parameters for "hciconfig"-Usb BT Adapter and "hcitool scan"-target headset.
If I start the software with the commands,

sudo mkdir - p 'var/lib/bluetooth/ bd adr
sudo su
echo "target Headset " 0000>> var/lib/bluetooth/bd adr/pincodes

cd carhwisperer -0.2
sudo ./carwhisperer hci message.raw out raw target headset

then I receive the message:
" Voice setting ox0060 - Can't connect RFCOMM channel! Adress already in use". What say the message: Adress already in use?
I am using Raspberry pi, Distri wheezy.

Please can you help- thank you very much!

with best regards from Austria!

One possible problem is the path you specified "var/..."

Normally that would have been "/var/..." to ensure that whatever the working directory is gets the right place. Using a relative path just might not be what you wanted.
