    Default Creating Wireless Recon Maps

    I found this nice article on the question defense website and I'm trying to follow the steps, but I'm running into some errors.

    I've tried the steps on my VM running BT5 Gnome 64-bit and also my usb running BT5 Gnome 32-bit. I'm using BU-353 GPS receiver which is same receiver used in the article.

    The steps to start BU-353 GPS receiver are found here :

    I first ran
    Code:
    gpsd -h
    Then after plugging in the usb gps I ran
    Code:
    dmesg | tail -n 20
    and confirmed my gps receiver is ttyUSB0 by getting this message:
    Code:
    usb 2-1: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
    Next I started gpsd
    Code:
    gpsd -n /dev/ttyUSB0
    and that resulted in no errors and no changes on the screen.

    When I go back to the wireless recon article and start my gpsd with this command:
    gpsd -N -n -D 3 /dev/ttyUSB0
    I get:

    gpsd: launching (Version 2.92)
    gpsd: Can't bind to port gpsd
    gpsd: Maybe gpsd is already running!
    gpsd: Can't bind to port gpsd
    gpsd: Maybe gpsd is already running!
    gpsd: command sockets create failed, netlib errors -1, -1
    I thought I'm getting this error because I ran a command earlier to start gpsd
    Code:
    gpsd -n /dev/ttyUSB0
    so I restarted both my VM and my usb backtrack and ran the command
    Code:
    gpsd -N -n -D 3 /dev/ttyUSB0
    from the recon article and got the same error message in both machines.

    Any ideas why I'm getting this error message?

    Mhh.. maybe you should try to kill the gps daemon and start it again, this works for me very well if i got this error message.

    Check if the service is already running:
    Code:
    ps -A | grep gpsd
    If the service is running, type:
    Code:
    killall gpsd

    Test if you're receiving data by telneting to gpsd

    # telnet localhost 2947

    I always ran into the problem in the past that gpsd would never get shut down so i had to manually kill it before it would run again. I bet it's just still running on ya.

    Skip gpsd, it's garbage. Kismet will use the gps data natively. In the kismet.conf where the gpsd lines are located there's a place to tell it where your gps is. Comment out the gpsd parts and uncomment the usb parts.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
